Back to the Chickadees! This time I started with a song that I love and created a painting based on the song "Cheek To Cheek". I know it as the song Fred Astaire sings to Ginger Rogers in "Top Hat".
When I was growing up, I loved watching the old-time musicals, especially the ones with Fred Astaire. The way he danced was like silk or floating on gusts of wind inches above the ground. That feeling of effortlessness is intoxicating. And it transverses all actions in life. Not to be too philosophical, but it is true. We are in awe of people who make difficult tasks look like child's play. I don't think I will ever stop being in awe of Fred Astaire's floating on air or Michael Jordan's flying leaps to the hoop or my mom's ability help me through any quandary. I like to find the little things that make me smile and keep them close so I have a reason to smile each and every day :)
