Every Shining Time You Arrive

Change in every little desire
We were counting on forces we could not control
Oh and all those things you realized
Were nothing more than a memory displaced through
So the story’s told beyond our grasp
We were climbing forever an infinite task
Shoulders straining with the endless toil
We’re nothing more than a feather moving in the wind
I want to change everything
I want to change everything
I want to blame everything on
Oh and all these seeds will grow anyway
Even though the outcome we cannot say
So you’ll always have your time to shine
Even in the winter of your darkest hour
Want to change everything
I want to change everything
I want to blame everything on

In the depths of my gloom
I crawl out for you
From the peaks of my joy
I crawl back into
Tearing me down every time you smile
Every shining time you arrive

Fell On Black Days

 

Whatsoever I’ve feared has come to life
Whatsoever I’ve fought off became my life
Just when everyday seemed to greet me with a smile
Sunspots have faded and now I’m doing time
Now I’m doing time
‘Cause I fell on black days
I fell on black days

Whomsoever I’ve cured, I’ve sickened now
And whomsoever I’ve cradled, I’ve put you down
I’m a search light soul they say
But I can’t see it in the night

I’m only faking when I get it right
When I get it right

‘Cause I fell on black days
I fell on black days

How would I know
That this could be my fate?
How would I know
That this could be my fate? Yeah

So what you wanted to see good
Has made you blind
And what you wanted to be yours
Has made it mine

Don’t you lock up something
That you wanted to see fly
Hands are for shaking
No, not tying, no, not tying

I sure don’t mind a change
I sure don’t mind a change
Yeah, I sure don’t mind, sure don’t mind a change
I sure don’t mind a change

‘Cause I fell on black days
I fell on black days

How would I know
That this could be my fate?
How would I know
That this could be my fate?

How would I know
That this could be my fate?
How would I know
That this could be my fate?

I sure don’t mind a change

Black Hole Sun

In my eyes, indisposed
In disguises no one knows
Hides the face, lies the snake
The sun in my disgrace
Boiling heat, summer stench
‘Neath the black the sky looks dead
Call my name through the cream
And I’ll hear you scream again

Black hole sun
Won’t you come
And wash away the rain
Black hole sun
Won’t you come
Won’t you come (won’t you come)

Stuttering, cold and damp
Steal the warm wind tired friend
Times are gone for honest men
And sometimes far too long for snakes
In my shoes, a walking sleep
And my youth I pray to keep
Heaven sent hell away
No one sings like you anymore

Black hole sun
Won’t you come
And wash away the rain
Black hole sun
Won’t you come
Won’t you come

Black hole sun
Won’t you come
And wash away the rain
Black hole sun
Won’t you come
Won’t you come (black hole sun, black hole sun)

Won’t you come (black hole sun, black hole sun)
Won’t you come (black hole sun, black hole sun)
Won’t you come (black hole sun, black hole sun)

Hang my head, drown my fear
Till you all just disappear

Black hole sun
Won’t you come
And wash away the rain
Black hole sun
Won’t you come
Won’t you come

Black hole sun
Won’t you come
And wash away the rain
Black hole sun
Won’t you come
Won’t you come (black hole sun, black hole sun)
Won’t you come (black hole sun, black hole sun)
Won’t you come (black hole sun, black hole sun)
Won’t you come (black hole sun, black hole sun)
Won’t you come (black hole sun, black hole sun)
Won’t you come (black hole sun, black hole sun)
Won’t you come
Won’t you come

street-spirit-roz-abellera

This abstract painting entitled Street Spirit, represents the feeling of the big city. In my lifetime I’ve lived in two big cities: Seattle and Las Vegas. There is a certain freedom and spontaneity that you feel when you’re in a big city and this painting captures that feeling for me.

‘Every Shining Time You Arrive’

Change in every little desire
We were counting on forces we could not control
Well and all those things you realized
We’re nothing more than a memory displaced through

So the story’s told beyond our grasp
We were climbing forever an infinite task
Shoulders strain with the endless toil
We’re nothing more than a feather moving in the wind

Want to change everything
Want to change everything
Want to blame everything on

Well and all these seeds will grow anyway
Even though the outcome we cannot say
So you’ll always have your time to shine
Even in the winter of your darkest hour

Want to change everything
Want to change everything
Want to blame everything on

In the depths of my gloom, I crawl out for you
From the peaks of my joy, I crawl back into
Tearing me down every time you smile
Every shining time you arrive, you arrive, you arrive

starryseattle

This is a novelty painting I did of one of my favorite cities in the world: Seattle. I did it in the style of Vincent Van Gogh’s famous painting ‘Starry Night.’

I purposely made it look like ‘Starry Night’ as an homage to both: one of my favorite artists and one of my favorite cities.

palmtreeblog

I was born and raised in the South- raised particularly in South Florida. When I was in my 20’s, I moved to the West Coast of the United States. When I lived in Seattle, I realized one day that I missed palm trees. That’s the thing, when you leave Florida you realize there are no palm trees around and you then start to miss them because they were so common. Even when you go to visit a neighboring state like Georgia, you notice the lack of palm trees and that feeling of missing them kind of creeps up on you. Palm trees are just one of those things that scream “Florida” to me.

So now I live in North Florida and palm trees are back in my life again. This is a painting of a palm tree in Flagler Beach. It’s a silhouette painting with a magnificent sunrise complimenting it.  I will never take palm trees for granted again. 😉

“Times Of Trouble”

When the spoon is hot
And the needle’s sharp
And you drift away
I can hear you say
That the world in black
Is upon your back
And your body shakes
So you ditch away
And you close the shades

Don’t try to do it
Don’t try to kill your time
You might do it
Then you can’t change your mind
You’ve got a hold on to your time
Till you break through these
Times of trouble

When you try to talk
And the words get hard
And they put you down
Don’t you stay
Don’t you ditch away

I saw you swinging
Swinging your mother’s sword
I know you’re playing but
Sometimes the rules get hard
But if somebody left you out on a ledge
If somebody pushed you over the edge
If somebody loved you and left you for dead
You got to hold on to your time till you break
Through these times of trouble
