I love/hate that Journey song. Ugh, it is so darn catchy and you have to sing along to it. They play this song at the end of our high school football games. I love the ritual of attending these games. Sitting in the band parent section, cheering for our team (Go Dons!), being part of our community, then, carefully disembarking our crowded and flimsy bleachers hearing this song. As a band parent, I really am there for the marching band show and music.
I do not think that we will have a typical marching band season this coming year. It is my daughter’s senior year, so it is hitting us hard. I noticed that the school music program posted their schedule; practice days/hours; band camp, competitions…I hear that song…don’t stop, beliven!’
Here’s another ArtAment – this one honors the Livermore High Marching Band, the Cowboys. How lovely that their colors are so holiday festive too! I will be selling these and other designs at the ArtWalk – Saturday October 14 in Livermore.
For ArtWalk, I wanted to have artwork for sale that is affordable and original. I am happy to announce my Artaments! These are 3″ x 3″ acrylic canvases painted and priced with love! They make the perfect gift (to self and others) and will add some whimsy to your holiday decor!
My first one is an homage to the Marching Dons (Amador Valley High School). I am so proud to be part of this music community and cannot wait to see the full show this year. I am over the moon that the school colors are purple and gold – my favorite color combo! What a happy coincidence.
