|"My old guitar" colored pencil ACEO|
This week the poll on Paint Party Friday is about what kind of music one listen’s to while creating their art. Let’s just get this out into the open right off the bat. I must have music playing while I am painting or I will hum. Yes, I hum, an annoying tuneless hum. Just a warning—tuneless hums are a deterrent to creativity.
If I turn on my tunes, then the humming takes a back seat and I sing along. I guess I am a natural participant, so I don’t listen to classical. I cannot do an adequate impression of a cello with my vocal cords. So I listen to a mix of oldies and some newbies.
If it is a particularly bright, cheerful song, I put down my brush and dance. Yes, I dance like no one is watching. And that is just fine with me. My studio, which is in my basement, allows me plenty of warning if someone should come down the stairs. I will not have to live in fear that one of my kids will get a video and post it on YouTube with the title, “Mom experiencing seizure.’
So in conclusion I guess Dancing with the stars is a no go for me, and unless American Idol raises its age limit (since I am a tad above) I won’t be auditioning there either. I will still, however, continue my habit of Painting with the oldies! Have a wonderful weekend everyone!
