About This Image

This is a combination of two photographs; one of sheet music and one of me in trees looking for a horse!

The trees I can see right now as I look out the window; the song I can hear as I write. Peaceful but with "sparks of life"! An ideal combination. The voice I hear is Willie Nelson. His enthusiasm and ability as guitarist, writer and singer over so many years is an inspiration. The fact that this lasts, made me link a song he sings with nature- always there, but never quite the same. The transparency is to represent two levels of the songs he writes and sings: details specific, underlying themes universal. Hence, they grow with age.

Willies songs make me remember words, see an image and be haunted by the sounds. This is the nearest I could get to showing it!

Very nice, Mary. I also like your description - and Willie's music is a good choice. You put this one together very well.

I know nothing about art, but you have got me looking now! Just found Sid Dickens on internet. Think I found the "Sisters" picture- lovely. I love the solid style. Delighted to find the music and the piano too. Thank-you. I have photos of my piano, I must do something with them now!

Beautiful, in one word! Another word that comes to mind is "ethereal" as to the quality of the design. Reminds me very much of these special "plaques" or Memory Blocks that I love, - by a BC Artist - Sid Dickens, he has a site online. We have several of his Memory Blocks, one title being "Sisters", which comes to mind immediately, that I bought as I have 2 daughters. He also incorporates music notes/symbols into some of his designs
