Bill Withers' rainbow.

.
If I could, I would use every single color from my watercolor box to paint him.
Because his music is like the longest and most wonderful rainbow for me.




















When I was five or six years old I've heard this song on the radio...I can still remember this moment...
Lifetime love...
Listen, then you'll understand...

  1. It's truly amazing how certain memories stay with us. Sound is one of the biggest triggers of memory, and I tend to associate certain songs with certain places and times.

  5. The world would be a poorer place without differences of opinion. I can't stand Bill Withers :) But like you I absolutely love Janis Joplin. A voice you could die for - and she did. I just wonder whether, with all her insecurities, she'd have enjoyed growing old. It's sad she never had the chance

  6. Merci beaucoup für deinen Kommentar zur Asienreise, war eine aufregende, horizonterweiternde Zeit, habe u.a. in Thailand bei einer Animal-Rescue-Station gearbeitet, das war teilweise nicht so schön, weil manche Tiere sehr krank waren oder von ihren Vorgängern schlecht behandelt wurden. Ansonsten war es aber schön, vorallem Bangkok - vibrant city!
    LG, Julia

  10. Beautiful performance, beautiful lyrics.
    I was older than six when I first heard this song.
    Are you going to post the final drawing with every color of the rainbow or leave as is??
    I noticed you have The Americans by photographer Robert Frank, great images. Jack Kerouac wrote the introduction "after seeing these pictures you end up finally not knowing any more whether a jukebox is sadder than a coffin"; very well said.

  12. Thank you for sharing these wonderful experiences of music, especially this song. Some experiences can be exciting and can trigger strange feelings, feeling close to deja vu. Now I will not dwell on this, maybe it's better that way. Last but not least, I noticed that you have a special talent to capture moments of great emotional intensity of characters that you draw them. This is a quality desired by all the artists and which, I suppose, you have it in native mode. It is something special. It's so good that you started this and it's good that you can continue.:)

  22. For a split second, I thought that the microphone was real and on top of a drawing. This would have been really cool! It's very interesting like that already.
