These Memories We Should Keep

Some lives so extraordinary end too soon.
Some lives hit stellar stardom so early.

It was a fascinating night for gaining something larger than life from a poignant story; Adele and her heart-breaking songs on her album, 21. Sadly, it has been a week of reminiscing about a person we’ve lost, remembering her voice and music; Whitney Houston found dead, a night before the Grammy awards.  These things, compelled me to draw and ruminate.

Last Sunday was undeniably Adele’s moment, sweeping all  six major awards at the Grammy’s. She is 23 and impeccably beautiful. So young, so talented, what more can she ask for? Elated on her budding love-life lately, I can’t wait for some love-infused, happy tracks on her next album.

Count your blessings to find what you look for— Rolling in the Deep

Disheartening how Whitney Houston almost had it all yet left us too soon. Legendary talent, beauty, fame and money; having it all together, a tumultuous battle it must have been for her. Among other things, I will always remember the iconic music and the incredible high-belting performances she gave us. Watching her videos on Youtube today, still grips me inside. However, this is how I want to remember Whitney; having merry-eyed eyes, affable smile  and blessed with  an incomparable voice.

There’s so much that you just don’t see.—- Run to You

    Thanks very much for your kind words. I haven’t made any art in a long time. Perhaps I should start again. Your artwork inspires me.

    My wife is a HUGE fan of Adele, so I’ve actually heard that “Rolling in the deep” song. There is a remarkable quality, or, je ne sais quoi to her music, there’s no denying that. Not sure what it is, …it’s so…full of vitality, or soul, perhaps.

    Maybe it stands out so much in contrast because her music comes from her heart instead of being manufactured from a board room of marketing suits.

    Whitney was the same way, although I had always thought she was somehow immune to the lifestyle…tragic to say the least. Reflecting on things, and exploring those reflections, as you did with those paintings, are all part of the human experience, and I, for one, enjoyed your words and your artistic compliment to them.
