In my Artist's dream-Marthie Nel Hauptfleisch-Woman On Fire


Liner Notes: 

changed the order around a bit
my pronounciation is terrible, I know Smile


In My Artists Dream @cindyrella

I was flying over Monet's garden
Swooped down by Van Gogh's canal
Attended Renoir's luncheon
Visited the Middle East with Pascal

I was the lady in Manet's portrait
I delicately danced with Degas
Went strolling in Cezanne's landscape
Heard a lion's roar with Delacroix

As in the depth of my dream
I knew the depth in each stroke
I felt the passion, love, and anger
Touched the painted mother's cloak
Smelt the sweetness of the flowers
Rowed in a painted boat
I was both the moon and the moonbeam
In my artists dream

I was both child and mother with Cassatt
Three Tahitians with Paul Gauguin
Vermeer's girl with the pearl earring
And a seascape with Eugene Boudin

I sat in a cafe with Edward Hopper
I was a flower with Georgia O'keeffe
A family tree with Frida Kahlo
A colorful cat with Henri Matisse

Repeat chorus

Please keep your comments respectful, honest, and constructive. Please focus on the song and not the demo.

This is rather beautiful Marthie and so different to what I did with Cindy's wonderful words...which just goes to show how good and open to individual musical interpretation they are...your piano playing and singing are flawless...lovely recording!

Wow! As Gwyn says, it is so different from his, but so beautiful too! Your piano adds so gorgeous!
