A Golden Day by Solitairemiles A Golden Day by Solitairemiles
A Golden Day
by Paul Laurence Dunbar

I Found you and I lost you,
All on a gleaming day.
The day was filled with sunshine,
And the land was full of May.

A golden bird was singing
Its melody divine,
I found you and I loved you,
And all the world was mine.

I found you and I lost you,
All on a golden day,
But when I dream of you, dear,
It is always brimming May

This was inspired by the work of Maxfield Parrish.

Excellent job! I actually thought this was an illustration at first glance.

I realize this piece was inspired by Parrish, but it reminds me also very much of Arthur Hughes.

I have a blog for the Pre-Raphaelites, and I wondered if you would mind me featuring this on my blog? (giving proper credit/links of course)

Absolutely beautiful - the flow of the background and the positioning of the girl, along with the overall composition, sensitivity and colours used work together like a symphony!

You are most welcome. I seem to have lost the link to your on line radio show. I honestly don't know how that happened unless it just got lost in the shuffle while I was cleaning out my book marks. You wouldn't mind sending it would you? I'd appreciate it. :)

Of course, I have 2 radio shows, one about spirituality and one for art and music interviews. Which would you like?

The art and music of course but The other one would be nice as well. I like to listen while I compose my work or am just playing around. I never know how something is going to inspire me.

I hope that you enjoy the interviews. Today I'll be chatting with NYC Jazz vocalist and pianist Champian Fulton. You can listen live, or listen to the recorded shows on blog talk or on itunes. :hug:

itunes archives all the shows for one year, so you can go back and listen to any of them that you like, just do a search for "Tones" podcast

I do enjoy listening while I work on an art piece or even while I'm writing or just doing nothing. I've heard of Champion Fulton before. Didn't he help with the effort to get New Orleans back on it's feet? It seems he was in a documentary I saw that told about how jazz musicians, singers and others got together to help.
