Happy snow day to all of my fellow northeasterners who are trapped inside their houses too. Since the skies don’t appear to be letting up anytime soon, I have been taking advantage of this free time by doing what I always used to do in college during snow days – art projects! Ok, I have ample free time these days being unemployed, but snow days always seem to be more productive for art than any other given day. I spent much of yesterday researching and applying for jobs; today, art has my heart. On that note, my post for today will be less entertaining as my imagination is busy focusing elsewhere.
Remember how I mentioned I titled many of my posts with song lyrics? I figured I should keep you in the loop with which songs and artists I have used. See below for a complete listing.
2. I hold on – “I hold on” by Dierks Bentley
6. I’ve got a gypsy soul to blame and I was born for leaving – “Colder Weather” by Zac Brown Band
10. Every time I hear that song, I go back – “I go back” by Kenny Chesney
11. (No) tears on my pillow – “Emotion” by Bee Gees
17. I’m not gonna write you a love song ’cause you asked for it – “Love Song” by Sara Bareilles
19. What’s the matter with kids today? – “Kids” as sung in Bye Bye Birdie
20. And I would do anything for love – “I’d Do Anything for Love” by Meat Loaf
22. I believe in better days. That’s why I pray – “That’s Why I pray” by Big and Rich
24. If I told you I loved you – “Stay” by Florida Georgia Line
25. I think I’ll go to Boston. I think I’ll start a new life. – “Boston” by Augustana

27. “Welcome to the real world,” she said to me condescendingly – “No Such Thing” by John Mayer
29. Prayin’ for daylight – “Prayin’ for Daylight” by Rascal Flatts
There you go! That should be all of the songs since I first started blogging. Expect a more insightful post tomorrow. Time to get back to my art. Once completed, I’ll try to show you part of the project I have been working on. But for now, enjoy this charcoal sketch from a 2005 snow day.
