Craig Maher - 69 Love Songs

I cheated a little and used my favorite Magnetic Fields song "Torn Green Velvet Eyes", from the 1994 album Holiday.

Did you go a little crazy working on Month of Love? In a good way I hope. Here is a Love playlist I made called "I Go Crazy" that accompanied me for some of the studio hours ...

1. Dirty Thing - Telekinesis - 12 Desperate Straight Lines
2. I Go Crazy (LP Version) - Flesh For Lulu - I Go Crazy (US 12 Inch)
3. Lights - Phantogram - The Hunger Games: Catching Fire
4. Torn Green Velvet Eyes - The Magnetic Fields - Holiday
5. Lies - Chvrches - The Bones Of What You Believe
6. Always Forever - Cults - Static
7. Love is to Die - Warpaint - Warpaint
8. It's Only Love - Ejecta - Dominae
9. Wait For Me - City of Glass - The Modern Age
10. Honey & I - Haim - Days Are Gone
11. Halcyon - The Paper Kites - Woodland & Young North EP
12. She Lit A Fire - Lord Huron - Lonesome Dreams
13. Hearts Like Ours - The Naked and Famous - In Rolling Waves

E-mail or private message me for your very own copy. Thanks Kristina and everyone for a great month!

Fetish - Marc Scheff

I confess, I've had some creative block this week, thus the late post. I have been turning to exercise, walks, and a well-timed call with my mentor to clear out the cobwebs.

This piece is, again, doing double-duty. It is a fetish, in that I seem to have one about painting women and wolves. It is also a very small (5.75 square) piece for the Mail Me Art project.

I Don't Believe in the Sun

Given that I know the feeling, I wish I could have done this little painting more justice - but it's been a rough month. The funny part is, turns out feeling like this isn't limited to heartbreak. Sometimes it's just life.

I chose "The Book of Love" for my Magnetic Fields love song. The line "I love it when you read to me, and you can read me anything" has always struck me as one of the most romantic lines in any song ever.

The Sun Goes Down and the World Goes Dancing <-->  Nothing Matters When We're Dancing

I thought I didn't know the Magnetic Fields "69 Love Songs" -- but through various mixtapes (or their digital descendants) a good handful of the songs had already come to me, and gone back out again.

I set to painting, inspired by the song (and lets be honest, the title) "The Sun Goes Down and the World Goes Dancing."  But in the back of my head, and frequently spilling into the foreground was "Nothing Matters When We're Dancing."   Because "Nothing Matters When We're Dancing" is the first Magnetic Fields song I really fell in love with, and gave to my beloved on multiple mix cd's.
