All Around the Cathedral by BetterthanBunnies All Around the Cathedral by BetterthanBunnies
Robert Sherman, lyrics writer of Mary Poppins and one of my heroes, just died. I feel so heartbroken, like I've lost a friend. I've been crying all day.

This is such a lovely artwork. The lady looks quite elegant, and I really like the way you've styled her hair. Her dress is charming, and you lit the artwork in a very pleasing way. Wonderful depiction. :)

Oh my gosh. I had no idea which is sad considering that this was posted a long time ago. RIP Robert.

"The saints...and apostles,
look down as she sells her wares.
Although, you can't see it,
you know they are smiling,
Each time someone shows that he cares."

I liked that song and later loved it when hearing that when the Sherman brothers would see Walt he would ask them to play this song as he looked out his window =^^=

As a kid I hated this song. I skipped it whenever I could and for most of my life I was completely prejudiced against it. The other night I was babysitting this little girl and she fell asleep on my lap so I didn't want to move just to fast forward...and I ended up crying. Really great picture.

It makes me cry every time. Isn't it funny how you watch things different as a grownup? I always liked the cartoon parts...but now I love the parts with mr. Banks.

And.... "Although you can't see it, you know they are smiling each time someone shows that he cares." This is a beautiful way of showing you cared. ♥ The lighting is flawless, and her pose and expression are perfect.

I will always cherish the music of the Sherman Brothers. No matter the pain, I am thankful that Robert passed away in the country he loved so much and is now reunited with Walt Disney himself forever.:rose:

I knew the Sherman Brothers were getting on in years, but it still stunned me to hear that Robert died.

I don't think you're ever totally prepared for death, no matter when it comes.

I know that I've now been thinking of how Walt must've felt when listening to the song but now I'll probaby have an image of Robert watching Richard playing the song for him T_T

The part of the song you've used for the title was always my favorite part. I always mist-over when I hear it, but today I can't help but cry. Thank you for helping everyone remember him with such a beautiful picture.

I was in Disney World when I heard the news. Even in the parks the world seemed just a little bit darker. I too see the Sherman brothers as two of my heroes, but I couldn't cry because my family doesn't quite understand... they would have given me a bit of a hard time about it.
I don't think I'll ever be able to listen to "Feed the Birds" again without breaking down.
This drawing you've done is a beautiful tribute to him. :happycry:
