A lovely collaboration between an artist in New England in the US...and a guitarist from Tasmania in Australia.
A perfect example of the beauty of the internet and how it brings people together from all over the world.
I had spoken at an earlier time of how I was contacted via email by a gentleman in Tasmania who happened to see the image of my "Calypso" seahorse Torn Paper Paintings.
He explained that he was writing music and it was titled "Seahorse Bells", and wanted permission to use this image for the digital cover. You can sample this music HERE!
I was delighted to take part in this and so very pleased that this solo acoustic guitarist, Alan Gogoll, was kind and honest enough to ask for my permission.
We've been in contact ever since.
Recently Alan asked if he could use this image further....to use the colors from the seahorse as the background colors in his logo, which would then go onto T-shirts. Great idea.
Well...just the other day I received a box in the mail from Australia!!
Inside this box was a fabulous black T-shirt with the colorful logo...as well as a great collection of his CD's and assorted cards and goodies!!! What a fun bit of mail to receive.
I totally enjoyed pulling out each and every item. Since then I've had soo much delightful music playing...sampling all the CD's.
Alan....thank you for your generous gift, of goodies & friendship. I wish you soo much luck in the future with your music.
