Like Red on a Rose

I know a lot of people don't like country music - and I use to be one of them. which is ironic since I'm "a country gal livin' in Kentucky". I can remember listening to it when I was growing up because of my family who loved it - but I never really liked it much esp as I got older. But this past year I found myself listening to it more and more... with an open mind, I mean.. really listening to it... and discovered a newfound appreciation and love for country music and "country" in general. It reminds me of the good times, of my family, of my roots, of my home, of my life.

This work didn't turn out exactly how I wanted, but I hope I at least captured the feeling of love & romance. It was inspired by one of my most recent favorite country songs "Like red on a rose" by Alan Jackson. The first time I heard this song and watched the video I was completely captivated by it. It's such a romantic and dreamy video and beautiful song (wish I had someone to sing it to me lol). You can watch it here if you want.


Like red on a rose
When your lips first smiled at me
I was captured instantly
To each his own

Like blue in the sky
The gaze of your willing eyes
Touched something deep inside
The truth be known

That I love you like all little children love pennies
And I love you ‘cause I know that I can’t do anything wrong
You’re where I belong
Like red on a rose

And I love you like all little children love pennies
And I love you like good times of which I’ve known many
And I love you ‘cause I know you give me a heart of my own
You make my blood flow
Like red on a rose

Gorgeous! Captures the feeling wonderfully! Like Red on a Rose has to be one of my favorite songs of all time. I get chilly bumps every time I listen to it.
The lyrics. His voice. Just so perfect. *melts*

Beautiful piece, and beautiful song too. I thought you captured a great mood here, I myself do a lot of my works after listening to a song, as you can see by my gallery. Its a great feeling when a song makes you feel so many things. Great job!!

Yes music is one of my greatest inspirations. I noticed that about you as well by looking thru your gallery! I agree, I love when you hear a song and it takes you back to the time when it made you feel the most. :) Thank you for the sweet comment.
