The Shortlist of Muso’s to Make the Grade
I launched my new idea for an art collection last week, please read it here to recap.
The bands and musicians that I am going to explore auditorily and interpret visually on canvas are (in order of my being introduced to their music):
- David Bowie
- Pink Floyd
- The Beatles
- Skunk Anansie
- Rufus Wainwright
- Jeff Buckley
Ha! And there you have it…I will be embarking on the first painting of this series this week and, with a bit of cosmic luck, may have something to blog about next week.
I am not going to pressure myself to paint in this order — I am basically going to work it on my mood and who I feel like listening to at that given time. Make sense? No? Well, that’s fine!
Wish me luck as I have no idea how this is going to turn out 🙂

Who are your favourite musicians of all time? Come on, list at LEAST 3 bands you could never do without. Let them feel the love.

Hello Web Admin, I noticed that your On-Page SEO is is missing a few factors, for one you do not use all three H tags in your post, also I notice that you are not using bold or italics properly in your SEO optimization. On-Page SEO means more now than ever since the new Google update: Panda. No longer are backlinks and simply pinging or sending out a RSS feed the key to getting Google PageRank or Alexa Rankings, You now NEED On-Page SEO. So what is good On-Page SEO?First your keyword must appear in the title.Then it must appear in the URL.You have to optimize your keyword and make sure that it has a nice keyword density of 3-5% in your article with relevant LSI (Latent Semantic Indexing). Then you should spread all H1,H2,H3 tags in your article.Your Keyword should appear in your first paragraph and in the last sentence of the page. You should have relevant usage of Bold and italics of your keyword.There should be one internal link to a page on your blog and you should have one image with an alt tag that has your keyword….wait there’s even more Now what if i told you there was a simple WordPress plugin that does all the On-Page SEO, and automatically for you? That’s right AUTOMATICALLY, just watch this 4minute video for more information at. WordPress Seo Plugin
Crikey! After reading that whole shpiel I feel quite giddy. I’ll check out the vid, thanks.

Interesting art endeavour you are embarking on Cherie. I would like to see what came of your encounter with the music and the artistic output that followed.I am sure it could be a very powerful creative stimulous. Perhaps I must try to paint something based on the organ music I love so much. Best of luck.
Hi Riaan, I just went to get the first canvas panel today 🙂 Can’t wait to start this project. I think you should go for it and paint to the music you love, we can compare notes! What medium do you paint in?
Hi Riaan — I forgot to ask you what your top 3 band/musicians are?
