October 2007 Artist of the Month - mamabobbijo

Related: None

Each month the Renderosity community votes on The Renderosity Artist Of The Month [AOM] ... October's AOM is mamabobbijo from the Writers Gallery. We congratulate mamabobbijo for an outstanding collection of written works!


Who is "mamabobbijo"?

BobbiJo McBroom. I'm in my fifties. I work at a school for boys with behavioral problems. I live in Massachusetts. I have four kids, grown. I have one grand child, Mullaney Rose.

How long have you been writing?

I've written most of my life. My mother was blind and I began describing everything to her at an early age. My Dad encouraged me to write things down, because he said my way of describing things was lyrical.

What are you currently working on?

A piece about a Moonbow, it has me scratching my head for now but I hope to finish it soon.

What do you think your best piece of work is and why?

I love Front Row Seats, it is the first piece I wrote for my grand daughter. I think the love really comes through.

 

Front Row Seats

Back porch, rockin' chair just before sundown
Nana rockin' Baby, they're listenin' to the nightsounds.
Sun paints the twilight purples and blues
Breeze pulls the cloud quilt off the face of the moon

Chair creaks, Baby sighs and snuggles deeper down
Ah, to spend forever here wrapped together in the nightsounds
The leaves are rustling gently as the nightsounds all begin
That warming up of instruments as they one by one join in

Nana rockin' Baby as the moonlight streaming down
Paints magic in the backyard to the concert of the nightsounds
The tree frogs are chirping and an owl gently calls
A bullfrog adds a bass beat from a pad down by the falls

The waves are keeping time as they lap upon the shore
The whirring of cicadas cycle up from whisper to roar
Baby's gettin' heavy as she drifts gently into sleep
To the softly lilting lullaby of chirp and hoot and peep

On moonbeams comes a Dreamship,I don't know where we're bound
But we'll journey into Everland surrounded by the concert of the nightsounds

Who/what inspires you?

My kids and grnd daughter. My parenets also have a great influence although both have been gone a long time.

How has this online community (Renderosity) enhanced your work, relationships, and learning?

From my first visit I was struck by the amount of positive feedback the artists gave each other. It encouraged me to begin posting my own work. I have made many friends here, and am always encouraged by the amazing sense of community.

Do you have any comments or advice for other writers/artists?

Dare to! The people here will help keep your courage up, offer kind critisism, and soundly trounce anyone who makes vitriolic comments.

 

We invite you to have a look at mamabobbijo's Gallery!

Artist of the Month is highlighting a talented Renderosity artist that has been nominated by mods and admins, and voted by the community. Recognition is given to this member for their collection of works for that year.

Since we only select one AOM per month, it is not about their works for that particular month. Instead, it is about highlighting a talented artist's works for that year, and they are recognized during that month.
