Weekend in New England - March song

I was busy dying Easter eggs yesterday, so didn't get to record this until today. My sub-goal by the end of the year is to record a song without having to do a bunch of takes and still having mistakes! It is so hard to get through the song without messing up, and to mess up and just keep going. Also to get my glasses to stay in place while I sing! They slip so far down my nose, I just don't know what to do about it.

Paintings - Year in Review

I didn't manage to post all 12 paintings from last year and just realized it.

Here they are:












The Rainbow Connection

Last year, you may recall, I challenged myself to do one painting each month. I managed to get through the year with varying degrees of artistic success. This year, my personal challenge is to record one song a month and post it. I've accomplished my January goal and here it is:


When I was 6 or 7, I was in The Sound of Music at the Fiesta Dinner Playhouse in San Antonio, Texas. I was Gretl. After the shows, Captain Von Trapp, Maria and I would go the theater bar and I remember singing The Rainbow Connection with them.

The Muppet Movie is one of the most influential movies in my life. I know it sounds silly, but at a very young age the idea of moving to Hollywood to make millions of people happy really resonated with me and has influenced my life choices.

Be happy. Sing. I hope you enjoy it.
