It was at least a half block away. I was shaking. Black & white street art is a bit rare.
I was impressed with how great it looked painted on a peeling tin sheet wall.
When I got there, I realized it was not art for art’s sake, but an ad. That made me blue.
OMG! There’s Leonard Cohen’s head just up over the trash can.
I get there, and it’s not art for art’s sake, but an ad about Leonard Cohen’s memorial stamp. I didn’t feel so blue, because I adore him.
I drew this b&w pencil sketch of a famous person, in a couple of hours. It’s a sort of copy of a b&w photo. I think it looks like the person.
I got all cocky. I thought I would try another famous person, from a b&w photo. I used a technique where I didn’t draw an outline first. Rather I shaded(scribbled) my way in. I spent many nights shading away. In the end, it looks nothing like the person. I was heartbroken, after all that work.
I did a Blue Heron post a couple posts ago. A couple of comments later, Trent writes this song. He has a fancy synthesizer, and does some cool music on it. However, he actually sings the blues in this. He’s good, got feel.
He followed up with “For Her Heartbreak”. I know Trent got a new synth, sort of recently. He’s been working with it on his new pieces. I asked him what the name is. I got this answer:
“I use a Sequential Prophet Rev 2 polyphonic analog synth as my primary poly-synth and I have been using a Behringer Poly D for bass lines, leads, solos, etc. – the Ploy D is a MiniMoog clone.”
This could be of interest for the musicians out there!
The Heartbreak might be in Red, but it’s blue. You can visit Trent on his blog – Trent’s World
Last, but not least, I share this b&w drawing of a blog pal, that I have never met. Her Poetry & Writings can make me feel anywhere from Powder Blue to French Navy and every blue in between. There’s other colours, but this is about B,W & Blue.
