Beauty So Surpassing
Today’s musical track is another one from the “Plank Road” barn session—raw planks, splinters and all. This is another one of John Williams’ songs—“Sheeva”—which is based on an actual dream he had. “Plank Road” was such a sweet, quiet conversation.
Artwork for today is a pen and ink drawing, complete with spatters. I love John’s description of the goddess—about the chalk outlines of the people fallen in the nearness of her fearful beauty. This is a hard song to illustrate, but I think this drawing does admirably.
