PAINTINGS AND MUSIC
That is the name of my new YouTube Channel “Art and Music with Marie”, and I have just uploaded another installment of paintings and indie music in conjunction with the fabulous singer/songwriter James Abberley.
This time the song is called “Ghost” and I actually like it even better than “I’ll be a Bird” if that’s possible.
I find that the melody to Ghost just stays in my mind for hours after I have heard it and I hope that all of you like it too, as well as the paintings, sculptures, prints and public sculptures that the images shows too of course.
James Abberley says that “Ghost is a very dark song. I wanted it to be confronting but still relevant. Sometimes we can end up in a place that we never wanted to be in. Sometimes you can feel like a Ghost, but there is always love and there is always someone that can see you.”
This song is also from the new album called “Some kind of Relief” and in the Indie genre as he is becoming known for and if you would like to find out more about James go to this link and have a little read. Indie Music & James Abberley. Also if you are in Adelaide, do not forget to catch up with James every Friday night in the front bar of the Governor Hindmarsh Hotel, known just as the Gov to us locals.
ART ON YOUTUBE
I had made a couple of Youtube video clips before which also featured our two dogs Cheech and Vegas whilst we still lived at the farm and we dressed them up in all sorts of doggy clothes and put the photos in between the artwork, as I told you before you have to be a little bit crazy to be an artist!
ART AND SOCIAL NETWORKING
The new changes to YouTube, means that you can personalize the look of your YouTube site and create the feel that you want. They have also included a new “feed” to make it more interactive as well, something I think may have been inspired by Face book. It seems to me that a lot of the Social Networking sites are rolling out new changes at the moment, and just as quickly there are groups that form who are against that, just check out all the “I hate the changes to Face book” groups. As someone who has only in the last couple of years learned the ropes so to speak, any new changes always take a little time to get used too. However I read somewhere that Cyberspace is the only place in modern culture there should be nothing BUT change, it is necessary to keep the innovation alive. So hey we better get used to it!
ART AND COMPUTERS
The younger generation take to it like ducks to water and if you Google to find some advice half the time it will be a 6 year old, lol well maybe a 10 year old that is doing the tutorial on how to use a certain function. It reminds me of what Dolly Parton said about computers “Truth is, I wouldn’t know a gigabyte from a snakebite”, lol but she can afford to employ someone to do all the computer work for her it’s the rest of us that have to try to keep up. I like my new telephone, my computer works just fine, my calculator is perfect, but Lord, I miss my mind!
So if you just like me need some time out and just chill why don’t you pour yourself a nice glass of wine click on my new YouTube contribution and relax with James and I.
So here is a quote just in case wine is not your drink of choice by an unknown author;
“Take life with a grain of salt, a slice of lime, and a shot of tequila.”
Till next time happy painting and sculpting to you all,
Love Marie xxx
