Paint Like Nobody's Watching
The title of this blog was inspired by the song "Come from the Heart."* This song left a lasting impression on me from the first time I heard it--performed by Garnet Rogers in a small venue many years ago. The lyrics have become quite popular, so you have probably heard it, too. The chorus is:
"You've got to Sing, like you don't need the money,
Love, like you'll never be hurt,
You've got to Dance, like nobody's watching,
It's got to come from the heart if you want it to work."
(*to the best of my research, this song was written by Richard Leigh and Susanna Clark and recorded by Kathy Mattea)
I knew that if I wanted to start an art blog, I would have to "Paint like Nobody's Watching." I've never put my art "out there" before. I never had to wonder if anyone was watching before. Now, here I go....
I do think at least my mother will be watching.
