I drew an aircraft!

(WiP?) “Sketch of a PBY-6A”
I never thought I’d do it but I enjoyed drawing this while listening to Dolly Parton (“Jolene, Joleeeene!”)😍
.
I was flipping through an aircraft magazine and first thing I noticed was its boat-like shape and huge propellers. It’s described as an “amphibious” aircraft that can land on land or water. The wheels can actually fold into the sides!
「進行中?」「PBY-6Aのデッサン」
初めてこの飛行機を描いたんですけど、ドリー•パートンの「ジョリーン」を聴きながら意外と楽しかったです!

航空機の雑誌でこれを見つけました。PBY-6Aは海上にも着陸が出来るそうです。
Ngayon lang akong nakaguhit ng ganitong subject pero nakakatuwa pala, habang nakikinig sa awitin ni Dolly Parton 😆 Ayon sa magasin na nabasa ko, itong PBY-6A ay kaya raw lumanding maging sa lupa man o karagatan.

I want a splash of color.

From the self-imposed rules I have to make 

To make it through society, 

Though I may never be truly understood by everyone
Except by me, but that’s not their fault.
When I have to make a living
So that there’s a roof above my head.

When people tell me who I should be,

I want a splash of color.

Just to clarify some things: this doesn’t mean to be reckless, or to be utterly disrespectful to others.

I’m just musing about my time of drawing and painting and how I’d like it to be that space, even just the sole space in my life where I can truly be me and just LIVE —

Live in the present moment and be happy.

 

I want to remember this

I want to remember this.

If I ever become a great artist, and have my own studio, and it’s so big —

That I don’t have to squeeze myself in because I have enough room.

Urban sketches

“Urban sketches”
That time I went downtown to try to actually paint people! If you’ve never been to Hawaii, here’s a glimpse of Honolulu besides the ocean and palm trees and all that.

I’ll light the fire, you place the flowers in the vase

Did I mention that I love music too?

I like different genres, but mostly I’m into 60s-70s kind of music. So today I wanna talk about one of my favorite songs from that era, plus lyrics!

“Our House” by Crosby, Stills & Nash

Album: Deja Vu (1970)

Lyrics:
I’ll light the fire
You put the flowers in the vase that you bought today
Staring at the fire for hours and hours while I listen to you
Play your love songs all night long for me, only for me
Come to me now and rest your head for just five minutes, everything is good
Such a cozy room, the windows are illuminated by the
Sunshine through them, fiery gems for you, only for you
Our house is a very, very, very fine house with two cats in the yard
Life used to be so hard
Now everything is easy ’cause of you
And our la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la
Our house is a very, very, very fine house with two cats in the yard
Life used to be so hard
Now everything is easy ’cause of you
And our
I’ll light the fire while you place the flowers in the vase that you bought today

Some background info: I once read that this song was written by Graham Nash while he was living together with Joni Mitchell.

My thoughts:
Ahh this song is so sweet. And simple but in a very good way. It’s light on the instruments with the piano being the most audible, and the harmonies of CS&N are just so soothing and on point. Note that David Crosby is from The Byrds which is another legendary, vocal harmony-centric group, so no suprises there.
It’s whimsical and if you’re looking for something light-hearted to listen to on a quiet night while lying down on your bed, this is it!
