Touched
You say that I am too
So much of what you say is true

I’ll never find someone quite like you again
I’ll never find someone quite like you, like you

The razors and the dying roses
Plead I don’t leave you alone
The demi-gods and hungry ghosts
God, god knows I’m not at home

I’ll never find someone quite like you again
I’ll never find someone quite like you again

I, I looked into your eyes and saw
A world that does not exist
I looked into your eyes
And saw a world I wish I was in

I’ll never find someone quite as touched as you
I’ll never love someone quite the way that I loved you

Indian Summer Sky

This is a painted scene of the sun rising over the mountains in the desert. I was in the South West and I remember seeing this when I took a trip to the desert. It gets so hot over there, they call it an “Indian Summer.”

This painting was done with watercolors on paper.

    Drown

No matter where you are
I can still hear you when you drown
You’ve traveled very far
Just to see you I’ll come around
When I’m down
All of those yesterdays
Coming around

No matter where you are
I can still hear you when you dream
You traveled very far
You traveled far, like a star
And you are
All of those yesterdays
Coming around

Is it something someone said?
Was it something someone said?

Yesterday the sky was you
And I still feel the same
Nothing left for me to do
And I still feel the same

I wish, I wish I could fly
I wish, I wish I could lie
I will, I will try
I will, I will
Goodbye

    Hummer

Faith lies in
The ways of sin
I chased the charmed
But I don’t want them anymore

And in their eyes I was alive
A fool’s disguise
Take me away from you

Shame my tongue
Fat with promise all along
But when I woke up from that sleep
I was happier than I’d ever been

When you decide
That your life is a prize
Renew and rivive
It’s alright honey
It’s alright, yeah

Happiness will make you wonder
Will I feel OK?
It scares the disenchanted
Far away

Yeah I want something new
But what am I supposed to do about you
Yeah I love you, it’s true

Life’s a bummer
When you’re a hummer
Life’s a drag

Ask yourself a question
Anyone but me
I ain’t free

Ask yourself a question
Anyone but me
I ain’t free

Do you feel
Love is real?

“Don’t look don’t look” the shadows breathe
Whispering me away from you
“Don’t wake at night to watch her sleep
You know that you will always lose
This trembling
Adored
Tousled bird mad girl…”
But every night I burn
But every night I call your name
Every night I burn
Every night I fall again

“Oh don’t talk of love” the shadows purr
Murmuring me away from you
“Don’t talk of worlds that never were
The end is all that’s ever true
There’s nothing you can ever say
Nothing you can ever do…”
Still every night I burn
Every night I scream your name
Every night I burn
Every night the dream’s the same
Every night I burn
Waiting for my only friend
Every night I burn
Waiting for the world to end

“Just paint your face” the shadows smile
Slipping me away from you
“Oh it doesn’t matter how you hide
Find you if we’re wanting to
So slide back down and close your eyes
Sleep a while
You must be tired…”
But every night I burn
Every night I call your name
Every night I burn
Every night I fall again
Every night I burn
Scream the animal scream
Every night I burn
Dream the crow black dream

Dream the crow black dream…

Yin and Yang

The concept of yin-yang is used to describe how seemingly opposite or contrary forces are interconnected and interdependent in the natural world; and, how they give rise to each other as they interrelate to one another. Many natural dualities (such as light and dark, high and low, hot and cold, fire and water, life and death, and so on) are thought of as physical manifestations of the yin-yang concept.

This piece was done by first creating the yin yang symbol through a computer program. The symbol was then superimposed onto a black background to create this subtle and minimalistic effect.

Desiderata

Desiderata is a 1927 prose poem by writer Max Ehrmann. I did this with original type over a watercolor painting of the evening sky as the background.

This is a great motivational poem to read when you need a daily dose of inspiration. Strangely, this poem was largely unknown during the writer’s lifetime.

Dream #3

‘Dream #3’ Oil and Acrylic on 20 X16 Canvas.

Female figure against a deep blue backdrop, into the arms of sleep.

Someone once asked me “Why do you always paint nude women?” Well, first of all not all of my art is of nude women. Secondly, when I went to art school, drawing nude models was part of the curriculum. It wasn’t uncommon to have nude models come into class and we would have to draw them.

So now when I draw or paint nude figures it’s just an extension of the way I learned. It’s not coming from a perverted or pornographic point of view. The female body is a beautiful thing and that is what I’m expressing when I do paintings such as this.

There was no model for this one. This one came strictly from memory and features my favorite color, blue.

Mars Rising

Mars Rising 20 x 16 Acrylic on canvas.

Mars is also known as the God of War in Roman Mythology. In Greek or Western Astrology he is known as Aries. In Greek literature, he often represents the physical or violent and untamed aspect of war. He also represents aggression.

I enjoy reading about different mythologies and this is why I painted Mars. At first I planned on making this a realistic looking painting but then the Expressionist in me just went crazy. So it ended up more as an Expressionist painting. I really let loose with the hair.

This town dont feel mine
I’m fast to get away-FAR

I dressed you in her clothes
Now drive me far – away, away, away

It feels good to know you’re mine
Now drive me far – away, away, away
FAR away
I dont care where just FAR – away
And I dont care

FAR – away
And I dont care where just FAR – away
