First they say they want you
See how they really need you
Suddenly you find you're out there walking in a storm

And when they know they have you
Then they really have you
Nothing you can do or say
You've got to leave, just get away
We all know the song ...

--Neil Diamond

I was all right for awhile
I could smile for awhile
But I saw you last night
You held my hand so tigh
As you stopped to say, "Hello"

You wished me well
You couldn't tell
That I'd been crying over you ...

“Mr. Wulfersberger, how come the band gets to go to Disneyland but the orchestra doesn’t?” Jenny asked.

“Because Disneyland invites marching bands. Orchestras don’t march. You can’t march with the cello,” said Mr. W.

“That’s not fair. Then I’m gonna take up the cymbals. And I’m gonna go to Disneyland,” said Jenny.

“Fine,” he said.

(And that’s how I learned to be a cymbalist in 7th grade at Actis Junior High in Bakersfield)

I had a beautiful experience yesterday rowing a boat in water. I referenced a photo of our team of rowers for this work. I really like one of the principles/rhythmic words of rowing, which is: one part power, two parts patience. So much application to art and life.

I love to read books. Today I decided to paint a little old red one with yellowing pages, which I opened and placed next to a vase made by my friend Misty, and a crunchy rose that I dried ages ago.

I referenced my viola for this work. I've been practicing diligently ... waking up early to play my scales, simple melodies, and trying my darnedest to keep my impatience at bay. My teacher says impatience is the number one killer of progress ... words that I know and preach in terms of painting ... but still ... it's ain't easy. Patience, that is.

A little note to those coming to Denver later this month to paint with me. If there's something fabulous you want to reference (like your viola or something else) please feel free to bring it with you or a great photo of that item with you. See you soon! Can't wait to paint with you!

DOWN TO THE RIVER TO PRAY
As I went down in the river to pray
Studying about that good old way
And who shall wear the starry crown
Good Lord, show me the way!
 
O sinners, let's go down
Let's go down, come on down
O sinners, let's go down
Down in the river to pray
