Austin Amazed By Jackson's Art Skills

Music mogul DALLAS AUSTIN has revealed MICHAEL JACKSON's talents didn't stop with music - the King of Pop was a great painter and sketcher too.
The record producer, who worked with Jackson on his HIStory album, admits he was really impressed with the pop star's artistic efforts.
He tells Rolling Stone magazine, "People didn’t know how much of a painter he was. He would draw a lot of stuff inside his album.
"If you look inside of the HIStory album... there’s a little kid sitting in the corner, which is one of the sketches that he did while we were actually sitting in the studio.
"I was like, 'Man, do you paint and draw?' and he just started showing us all these paintings and drawings that he had like at his house. The stuff was amazing."

Dear and Sweetest Michael,I lost the words to explain how compassionate and affected I feel when I think about the living you've got till now.First of all I would like to share a moderate view about life more optimistic than manichean view.From bad things and persons emerge the good and beautiful things and persons and if we look at your life and mine we are a proof of it. So it means that if bad persons and things didn't exist, good persons and things wouldn't exist neither. It's as simple as that.You must be wondering “who is talking to me” well Now I'm a woman of 36 years old, I get wiser and more adult but I kept my child soul and I still feel young.Both of us are sensitive, generous, loving, caring, spontaneous and innocent persons.You grew up in a pretty tough and sticky professional and familial environment devoid of love, caring and protection that you expected and deserved as a child (and that every child on earth should have because it's one and none the less of the parent's first duty above all), a teenager and a young man. Nevertheless you found the strength within yourself to fight against and cope with pains and suffering all these years keeping the faith in better days and in a smartly way you created your own protection as you could and I understand and approve the way you did it. It's completely normal and obvious !! Honestly I really admire the way you drove your life among such adversity. You showed to the entire world your numerous human and professional qualities, resources how deep your heart and soul are !!I'm a foster child and was adopted in France when I was a three months old baby and without knowing anything about my biological parents. Even though I had lot's of love,caring and protection from my adopted parents I went through lot's of difficulties of all kind, facing obstacles, burdens to hold, fights against human being cruelty.I noticed that Human being is cruel but human being is kind as well. This is God willing to leave human being to choose between being good or being bad. Some of us have a tendency to be worse than others (may be your father is one of them).However the pain that has been done to you has been done to me too because I love you very deeply. I feel so strong feelings growing up and invading all around my body, my heart, my soul and my spirit altogether. Music is a spiritual food for me too. since I'm 7 piano, dance, percussion and tonic solfa have no secret for me. . There is not a day without dancing, singing on your songs or playing piano. To know me better, I traveled a lot, I love different cultures and I'm an open minded person. I've got skills at language (french is my native language and as you can see I'm fond of English.When I sing and dance on your songs and we have the same tone of voice, I feel so well and so close it's emotionally intense. (My voice is low and can be very high meanwhile, it make the songs warmer. I work hard to try to do something clean and more professional. And It means lot's of work.Beside this, It's weird and very nice too because I take inspiration from your own moves and way of singing but I add my own touch to yours and It's like giving a new dimension to your creation. It's really cool !!! The result is really good. More seriously it represents a huge amount of work.I love the way you mixed and added beats and instruments for each of your songs. It's a real masterpiece. Each of them is unique and never look like each other. Michael you are a genius, such creativity, ideas and richness in your style... you are simply too much.I want you to know that I'm there, everywhere, each breath you take and the most beautiful song on earth is the heart beats of the person you love. And If it's God's will may be I'll hear yours and you'll hear mines one day. Who knows !! meanwhile I'm aware it's not going to be easy, anyway I like challenges ! So it's OK for me!Where ever you are and whatever you do I send you all my love to give you energy, boost you up after all the exhausting gigs tours you've made all these years of intense work and please take care of you, your health is one of the most precious thing above all and kick off all these crap and grasping people from production and media who try to squeeze you up like a lemon I would give you a hand with great pleasure for sure. Anyway, one day they'll have to pay for their unacceptable and bad manners. It's certain. I forgot to tell you I'm an optimistic person and I really think that Life is beautiful and it's worth being lived and we can make life the way we want it to be.And people like me and you contribute to change this world. The most important thing for this life on earth and also life after death is love, love again, again and again, always for ever.Sweety Mick, I like this contraction of Michael, I love you for ever.I could keep writing like this so long because there so many things I would like to tell you about me and so many things to ask about you, sharing the different steps of creation process with you and many other topics...What a shame we have to make up for lost time.Take good care of you.Lot's of love from valerie
