Weekend Music and Art

It’s a little late–been a busy weekend despite my botched plans. 🙂

This week’s artist is David Bailey.  There are so very many stunning images on his website.  Here are a couple of examples.  

As a writer, you can probably understand why this first image struck me so hard.

And wouldn’t you like to hear his story?

In music, my daughter introduced me to Blue October and I have not stopped playing this CD.  You can check out this Texas band on their Myspace page.  Here’s a taste…

About Rinda Elliott

Writer.I love unusual stories and credit growing up in a family of curious life-lovers who moved all over the country. Books and movies full of fantasy, science fiction and romance kept us amused, especially in some of the stranger places. For years, I tried to separate my darker side with my humorous and romantic one. I published short fiction, but things really started happening when I gave in and mixed it up. When not lost in fiction, I love making wine, collecting music, gaming and spending time with my husband and two children. I’m represented by Miriam Kriss of the Irene Goodman Agency.

    I reall like Blue October. My favorite song is the one they used for American Pie:The Wedding. It’s a great song.

    Thanks Rinda, for always sharing such great music and art. I have passed on your tips to others and they have been appreciated.

    The old man’s hands look younger than the rest of him and yet from the image you get the feel of a hard life. A great image.

    Regards,
    Elaine

    You find the most stunning pictures. How do you do that?
    Love them both but the old man is wonderful.

    I haven’t heard that one, Katie. I may have to visit Itunes today. I really love this CD, Foiled–had a hard time picking which song to share because they’re all so different.

    Elaine and Carol, someone recently called me an art whore and they weren’t far off. I would cover every wall in my home if I could. In fact, I recently bought a couple I think are pretty and I should share those on here. There is this thing around OKC that happens a couple of times a year called The Starving Artist Sale. You would not believe the paintings and the prices. My husband says I look like a child who has been given a hundred bucks in a candy store.

    Carol, I subscribe to different art webs, I have friends with websites devoted to art only… there is more beautiful art on the Web than anyone can imagine. It’s wonderful, really–at DeviantArt for instance. I’ve found perfect character images and the 8X10 prints are reasonable. Wonder if cover art departments would go off these…
