Children’s songs and inspiration

Have you ever thought about children’s songs and their message? I find myself continually inspired by my son to do things like write a new children’s book or make some paintings so I think I will. I have a show coming up this summer and I’d like to base at least some of my paintings on the song ‘Blackbird’. I love the message and love the images that are flowing through my brain. So… I just need to learn how to draw a blackbird and then paint one… whooie! I’m much more comfortable painting based on this song then something about the bubonic plague or cradles falling out of a tree… I mean really? who thought these are comforting? I sure don’t and nor am I comfortable singing about how daddy will buy you things until you’re happy. I’ll be sure to post images of my sketches and workings as I progress.
