My Music

I wrote my own arrangement of an old song, and would appreciate it if you would take a moment to listen.

There was an old black and white movie starring Bette Davis called "Hush Hush Sweet Charlotte" and there was a music box that played a beautiful melody. I looked everywhere for the music to this song, but alas, it was out of print. I wrote my own arrangement for orchestra and flute, adding a counter melody of my own. I would love to know what you think...

I have given the lyrics the melody in the box below:

Hush Hush Sweet Charlotte (Lyrics)

Hush hush, sweet Charlotte
Charlotte, don't you cry
Hush hush, sweet Charlotte
He'll love you till he dies (Chorus)

Oh, hold him darling
Please hold him tight
And brush the tear from your eye
You weep because you had a dream last night
You dreamed that he said goodbye

He held two roses within his hand
Two roses he gave to you
The red rose tells you of his passion
The white rose his love so true


And every night after he shall die
Yes every night when he's gone
The wind will sing you this lullaby
Sweet Charlotte was loved by John



Come to me! Take me in your cold embrace
and dance with me to the Gavotte, and the Minuet
on the earth, with a soft breeze brought by celestial winds
In music that fills my soul until the moment when we depart
this earthly coil to that destiny of which the two of us will only know…

Come reach for my hand!  I shall willingly
whisper my secrets to you, of which you know
And I shall  seek to unburden my dark and heavy soul
that I may finally find freedom and peace at last
Taken into your arms, for all of eternity…

Come dance with me!  Meet me on the dance floor and
push through to the empty space that has been left for us
As the cloudy night makes way to blankets of darkness
and the music finally reaches the final strain, I beseech you
Ah Death! Though I fear you not, come not too soon, for I am not quite ready yet...

Opus 1 by meregoddess
Opus 1
Acrylic on Canvas, 16 x20, fraught with mistakes.

I worked so hard on this.  Had some achievements, but a lot of mistakes.  I don't think I'm cut out for this painting stuff.  Perhaps I'm too critical, perhaps I'm just finally realizing my lack of ability.  

Here are some (not all) of the things I learned while spending over 40+ hours attempting to paint this:

° I can't mix paint.  (I waste more than I use)
° Trees get a lot smaller at the top than the bottom.  They don't get smaller, then bigger then smaller.
° I can't mix paint.  If I mix a color I like, I better mix enough, because I'll never be able to match that color again.
° When painting the leaves on the larger trees in the front, DON'T cover the leaves of the trees behind them.  It kinda screws up the perspective.  
° I can't mix paint.  (I'm never sure of the right consistency it should be, and a lot of time wind up with all the paint on my brush instead of my palette)
° Tree trunks can angle left or right, but they don't CURVE left or right, I don't think.  That just looks funny.  
° I can't mix paint.  Did I mention that?  At this rate I'm going to go broke trying to learn to paint just trying to learn to mix the stuff.
° It's better to highlight the leaves with a fan brush than the same kind of brush I used to paint the leaves to start with.  
° Pthalo green really sucks for a highlight color, even mixed with white or yellow.

I'm going to try and paint this painting again.  Or as similar a painting as possible and see if I can correct some of my mistakes, too many of which to mention here.  I'd appreciate any comments or suggestions for my next attempt, which hopefully will be better. (If I have any paint left)

The person, you can't live without
Often is one, you couldn't live with, either
It is easy to want what you don't have
When you don't have it
And hard not to want something else when you do
So the big love in a lot of lives
Is the one that got away...
