The Art of Life
Photobucket I'm so glad you're here! "The Art of Life" is where I share my journey as an artist & Momma. It's a place where I hope to encourage other women that they are artists too. In this small little space I seek to share, document, and be reminded of God's wonderful grace, all around us. ....And I would be so happy to have you journey alongside me! So grab a cup of coffee and linger for a while. I hope you leave feeling refreshed. Photobucket

Madeleine Peyroux ~Inspiration

~~I love music. Music is an art itself. I tend to have a very eclectic taste. When I'm in the car with the girls, we like to listen to something upbeat; something that we can sing along to.
But when I'm painting I love to have something soothing, slow and melodious going in the background. Somehow music and painting go hand in hand.
~~If you haven't found Pandora yet, you have to try it. Pandora allows you to personalize your own radio station with the sound that you like. I have several different stations that I listen to, depending on my mood. As I painted late into the night last night, I listened to a one created from the sounds of Norah Jones. Perfect painting music.
It was on this station that I found Madeleine Peyroux. Her website says that she's an "old soul" and that she's inspired by Billie Holiday, Bessie Smith, and Patsy Cline.
Today, on a gray, rainy Monday, her music is the perfect backdrop.
Happy Monday everyone.

Hi Kasie

I have never heard of Pandora, but is something I am interested in checking out further.

What a wonderful treat to hear that song put to the beautiful artwork(I think Michael Bubble also sings this song???). Just what I needed on a super busy day. I have literally come in for a few minutes to check some blogs and come across your post which has put a huge smile on my face as it is "beauty full". Thank you for this Kasie.

I hope you are having a woderful day my friend.

Lots of love
Elise.
