PRIDE & JOY: "My baby's lovin' 'cause the sun to shine
She's my sweet little thing, she's my pride and joy"
Spanish artist Mercedes Lagunas uses her electrified mediterranean color palette to express the inspiration she feels from one of Stevie Ray Vaughn's most beloved rockin' blues love songs.
TIGHTROPE: " Caught up in a whirlwind can't catch my breath
Knee deep in hot water broke out in a cold sweat
Can't catch a turtle in this rat race
Feels like I'm losin' time at a breakneck pace
Afraid of my own shadow in the face of grace
Heart full of darkness spotlight on my face
There was love all around me but I was lookin' for revenge
Thank God it never found me would have been the end
Walkin' the tightrope both day and night
Lookin' back in front of me in the mirror's a grin
Through eyes of love I see I'm really lookin' at a friend
We've all had our problems that's the way life is
My heart goes out to others who are there to make amends
French artist Lionel Dumas paints a scene representing his take on the metaphorical lyrics from Stevie Ray Vaughn's song "Tightrope" written about surviving the hardships of addiction.
LIFE WITHOUT YOU: "Well, hello baby
Tell me how have you been?
We all have missed you
And the way you grin
The day is necessary
Every now and then
For souls to move on
Given life back again
Fly on, fly on
Fly on my friend
Go on, live again
Day after day
Night after night
Sittin' here singin'
As the years go passin' by
By, by, by
A long look in the mirror
We come face to face
Wishin' our love
We took for granted
A love we had yesterday
Life without you"
Finnish artist Matti Pietar creates intrigue and mystery using a cubist portrait of Stevie Ray Vaughn in his artwork inspired by the lyrics to SRV's soulful song about loss.
