"And all my tears like water flown ....."

Share --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
I have borrowed from both my love for classical art and  music that deeply inspires me  today to bring an 'echo chamber' to my blog post.  I extracted the woman  (1883 - La Nuit)  from William Adolphe Bouguereau - a late 19th century French academic painter.  One source on the internet claims that  to make extra money, Bouguereau designed labels for jam jars.  Such is the life of an artist.  The other images in the postcard are from Holliewood Studios.

If you can spare 3-4 minutes today, consider listening to  masterful piece of music by Van Morrison - "Listen to the Lion" that follows below. It was the inspiration for this postcard for  Sunday Postcard Art - the theme "Illusions."   But HOLD ON, wait - that's the theme for next week!  These weeks theme was "Double Take".

They say if you want to know a person, look at the books in their library. If you want to know me, listen to the music I listen to.  And occasionally, the images I place next to each other will give you a hint to my heart's delight. :0)   Thanks for reading....and maybe for listening...too.

Oh, how I hate that note that tells me that "this video is not available in my country" because it contains UMG stuff, grrr ... Maybe I´ll find that song elsewhere.

Awesome work of interpreting this passionate, soulful music, Trudi. Your work is always a delight and a source of inspiration. Bravo! Hugs, Terri xoxo
