Cue Paul McCartney and Wings, "Band on the Run." This I understand and love. As soon as the needle hits the vinyl, and I hear those first notes coming out of the guitar, my spirits lift. (And always, on the rare occasions I simply have the radio on in the car and you hear those notes, well, I'm floating above the road like Herbie the Love Bug. Happiness guaranteed! The day my spirit is unable to be lifted by that opening melody is the day I might as well hang it up.
Okay, so this painting has no meaning behind it, only a great album. Like yesterday, I let the music dictate the direction of hand to paint to surface. Here's who emerged.
The album in its entirety--you MUST listen to the entire thing loudly--so great. Grab a piece of paper and a paintbrush while you're at it.
