Chalk Mark In a Rain Storm

As a record and music collector for nearly 5 decades, the concept behind the Synthesia project was a welcoming relief from another winter day. It also provided me a reason to dig deeper into my collection for an album I've not listened to in a while. Double win for the creative soul.

As I prepare this post, I'm watching the slow dance of another snowfall. Inspiration for these images came from the poetics of Joni Mitchell's 1988 album Chalk Mark In a Rain Storm. The album features guest appearances from Thomas Dolby, Billy Idol, Willie Nelson, Nen Orr, Tom Petty and others.

Although the indoor weather limited me a bit, it was a great challenge. As always, feedback is welcomed. Thanks for the creative opportunity.
