inspire me thursday

i am always inspired by music, and i often listen to music while sketching or painting. art is an emotional release for me and sometimes the right songs bring that out. tristan prettyman’s music inspires me…she is just a girl my age singing about things all girls my age (or any age really) can relate too. i chose a portion of the song “love love love” (one of my favorites) to incorporate into the drawing because this verse is what i had in mind while sketching it out.

the complete lyrics to the song “love love love”:

well its 4 am
the paperboy’s at it again
but I cant get no sleep
i mean what’s the point
if I can’t even dream up a dream that’s worth the keep

and so there’s no need in even going
cause I’m better off never knowing
you know the media’s gettin really good at lyin
and this time around, well i’m not buyin

cause this life is a beautiful one
and though I’ve seen it coming undone
I know most definitely
that it’s gonna be you and its gonna be me

so baby keep your head up
keep it on the up and up
you know now cause you got all my

love, love, love

cause we’re all lovers and takers
breaking hearts to make the papers
she wants love, I told her to stop trying
cause the reasons for your tears
aren’t worth crying

and this life is a beautiful one
and though I seen it comin’ undone
well I know most definitely
there’s gonna be you
there’s gonna be me

so baby keep your head up
keep it on the up and up
and know now cause you got all my

love love love

lovin all around me
well i think that love has found me
lovin all the time

when the summer’s here the waves are crashin
no time time for thinking, don’t even ask me
gonna let it blow right past me
cause when i’m here, i’m always

up in this life is a beautiful one
and though i seen it comin undone
well i know most definitely
it always works out the way it’s meant to be

so baby keep your head up
keep it on the up and up

you know now cause you got all my

love love love
love love love

~”love, love, love” ~tristan prettyman

    Lately it seems to me that bloggers are much smarter than the average person …maybe not smarter, just more aware and open to live a different life than is portryed in the media. The blogoshphere offers such hope…
