new pictures up on my art site
please go n have a look
you can click on at the right there
the golden dragon
whose subtitle should be avarice
because dragons lust after gold
even when they have no way of spending it
its a big painting
and it’d look very arresting on yer wall
or buy a print of it
theres a giant bunny i painted for aurora
theres the prophetess who is cunning and eldritch
theres a self portrait and yes i do look regal
(as opposed to ir-regal which is not nice)
theres my darlingest daughter eve
and she looks like tree spirit to me
i mean she does in real life
but this picture really captured it
theres metallic forest
which was s’posed to be part of art man n technology ex
but it got lost in my garage
theres the ice mare…no horsing around…
please stop by n check em out
and be in awe of your favourite renaissance mannes
extremely high output
yes i’m going going gone
not much painting on tour so get in there now
and BUY!
or dont….n see if i care
(may never talk to you again tho)
meanwhile at home
labouring hard over the judgement of paris
it now has 3 hounds
1 cat
i parrot
and soon one black panther
its my most ambitious painting ever mummy
but i’m getting tired of it
just as the end is in sight
next i have a couple of commissions
so this may be the last painting before my tour
i will take some art stuff with me
but usually too tired or geed up to paint
got caught in a total downpour with the doodles last night
soaked to the skin
lovely hourglass shaped wife has made dal with pappadums
n vegie doo dahs
wife tells me 4 basic shapes for women (she has read)
hour glass
now i cant stop seeing women
n categorizing em in my head
apple apple pear column column ah…hourglass…pear etc
its a very rude thing to do i guess
but no one knows
except the 1000 people who read my blog
now it seems that there are less hour glasses than ever
(statistically speaking)
and i wonder why
is it because of over eating or over exercising…
am i being a total chauvinist swine talking about this at all?
howcome the hourglasses are becoming extinct?
it seems like i’m hard wired to respond to an hour glass
or am i just a sexist pig?
help me…i’m lost here
can i help my visual stimulation
by the combination of certain curves and planes
in the female form?
nk looks like a fender strat the way she curves in
and swells back out
i cant help it
i could watch her waist all day long
the symmetry pleases me….arouses me
but i cant say why
its not happening in my logical mind
maybe its the films they had when i was a kid
you know with marilyn n all that lot…
i wonder how they categorize men?
slobs blobs spunks hunks and monkeys
in truth i do appreciate a beautiful male body
with its lines and angles
oh humans can be so different
a day on the beach will show you that
all shapes colours n sizes
i guess you gotta love everybody equally
thats the idea
almost impossible to do tho
would i love my dear wife so
without her delicate face
her deep brown eyes
her perfect white teeth
her sweet breath
her hourglass figure
her soft white skin
her soft southern accent
her naughty mind
etc etc
um…..of course i would…i suppose
voice in another room : wheres this going…?
ok time to take los kiddies to school
wet day
pay some frickin’ bills
have a coffee or something
i thank the lord above
(not jehovah…he doesnt exist)
that i dont work
as in work work
nice day to be home

    Women are beautiful, men are handsome. The universe is female, I heard that somewhere. The earth is mother, fucker, the sea is male, man.

    There’s very little for better or worse love these days. Love is mostly a word used by people who love their partner’s body or wallet. Women are now acting just as bad as men. This is why Morrissey has always been alluring to me. He knows that love is generally bullshit and the only true love is maternal and from pets. There is some paternal love too.

    Love is hard to define but I think youโ€™ve got it. The portrait you did of NK in Lemuria seems to indicate a certain naughtiness ๐Ÿ™‚ The little skulls and faces in the border are delightful.

    And, I dig the golden dragon. I like the way you made it look like heโ€™s in front of the actual painting. Watch out!

    I envy ya: if I could paint and sell I’d be home too! ๐Ÿ˜€ Enjoy yer cozy day.

    well, as a photographer, seeing the light and shadows of womens bare skin and men as well is such beautiful curves, i completely understand where you are comming from, its art, the light hitting the skin makes it so beautiful, soft, silky the most wonderful thing with both sexes, cant get better then that

    There is a mathamatical ratio regarding the ideal shape of woman and men but who cares when it’s all in the eyes of the beholder.
    And what is beholden is good.

    Today I discovered and fell for

    Snowfaller. I played it for 3 or 4

    hours nonstop while cleaning house.

    This is the perfect song at this

    moment for me, giving me some hope

    and a reason to try. I hope that

    the joy and love your music gives

    to people is returned to you in

    spades. Thank you for it.

    mmm the beauty of the female form……fascinating on lotsa levels. I have been doing a life drawing class for a few years now. The female form is a never ending mystery with all its nuances subtlety yep… it is because of all those curves. Did you know leonardo was entranced by the curved line in the human form? Nothin chauvinist about admiring beauty we need more of it in this world..too much ugly stuff around you’ve got to see beyond and be able to see beauty…

    Jehovah does exist but he was msininterpreted as a desert storm god. Jesus told you the truth about him, but still we apes fuck up.
    You are biologically-programmed to be attracted to human females. Their more obvious female attributes are precisely the things you have been biologically-programmed to find attractive. It’s not the 80s – you don’t have to pretend anymore!
    But dragons do not lust after gold – they guard it from avaricious humans.

    Somethin like that anyhow.

    hmmmm….also had the day off as all the schools in the area (including the one i teach at) were closed due to floods and shithouse weather…..male shapes, well that’s a topic to ponder….broad shoulders, narrow hips, tight butt, yessiree there’s quite a lot to ponder indeed….
    my other half is quite fond of my hourglass curves as well….doesn’t want me to get too skinny as he fears i may lose them….
    well, gonna go and peruse your new works…
    love always……

    sk – take a big breath – think about it – 5 bewdiful daughters, gorgeous wife, eons of recorded music about to be discovered and loved by many, many people – painting to your heart’s content, an upcoming tour of the u s of a with your longtime buddies, artistic freedom in every sense and i would hope and expect the cash register about to dump on you – just to see if you can get it right this time (we suspect so) and so again i say with all due love and respect – one day i noticed the world at my feet….

    Now here’s a wonderful idea.

    Cover “Fly” by Nick Drake and release it as an MP3 single.

    Starring your favorite white hippie Moses in the comeback role of the century as “Renaissance Nick” — with strong supporting roles, featuring Marty Willson-Piper’s 12 string Rickenbacker as “The Harpsichord” and Peter Koppes’ eBow as “The Cello.”

    I was listening to Bryter Layter last night and it just hit me how incredibly perfect a song it would be — in tone, in style, in message, in instrumentation. It’s a Church song. Oz would eat it up with a spoon. They’d love you. They’d be so ashamed for not taking you more seriously for LO! these many years!!!

    (And yes, I realize that once I’ve suggested it, it is sure to never happen)


    Please give me a second grace. Please give me a second face.
    I’ve fallen far down, the first time around, now I just sit on the ground in your way.

    Now if it’s time to recompense for what’s done, come, come sit down on the fence in the sun.
    And the clouds will roll by and we’ll never deny- it’s really too hard for to fly.

    Please tell me your second name. Please play me your second game.
    I’ve fallen so far for the people you are, I just need your star for a day.

    So come, come ride in my streetcar by the bay
    for now I must know how fine you are in your way.
    And the sea sure as I, but she won’t need to cry for it’s really too hard for to fly.

    You’ve mentioned before being interested in getting some music put into advertising. Would you guys be interested in doing a gig at my agency just outside Denver? I noticed you’ve got a few days between Seattle and Denver, so maybe it’d be doable. We’ve had a few different artists come in and just do a quick acoustic set in the afternoon, Shawn Colvin, Brett Dennen, Big Head Todd, to name a few. The artists usually treat it like an in-store appearance, just playing about a half hour tops. But in this case you’d be playing for the employees of one of the world’s top ad agencies…(

    If so, email me at I’m not the guy who books these things, but I can get my people in touch with your people and have them do lunch or whatever it is they do.

    Can’t wait to see you guys in Denver.

    “(not jehovah…he doesnt exist)”

    …ok, as a longtime lurker and somewhat fan, I really have to respond to this!

    It strikes me as odd and paradoxical that “Jesus” (Yeshua in the original Aramaic) went around telling everybody he was the exact image and characterization of the Father (“Jehovah” to the Jews he was amongst)… and yet you display a grindingly ongoing, apparently blind and phobic disregard for that same deity?

    I’ve read many times over, your brief and frankly uninformed views about “Jesus vs Jehovah”. How can you revere Jesus as a guy who went around doing good and being nice… and yet scorn and even deny the existence of the God he *explicitly claimed* he had been sent to represent?

    Yeshua/Jesus verbally claimed MANY times over to be the manifest and direct revelation of Jehovah/YWH/”I am”. The same God who called the Israelites out of the desert… et al. He referred constantly to his lineage as being from King David – the most historically pivotal and prophetic Israelite king under the “J-God”. He said repeatedly “I and my Father are one and the same”… “If anyone has seen me, he has seen the Father”… and he clearly identified his heritage as coming from that ancient name, Jehovah, and the culture of that people.

    Whether or not you understand the Old Testament with its tribal ways, violence, et al isn’t really the point… it was of course a very different age, with much harsher realities! I know the Bhagavad Gita and other “holy books” reveal similar tribal violence, wars, culture, etc.

    The one thing today that believers in Jesus AND the God he represents continue to draw strength, healing, and stability from, is that: that same Jesus the “Son of God” who suddenly appeared, teaching everybody that he was the living representation and likeness of God… was also devout to the spiritual and historical heritage of God, Jehovah, “I Am”.

    Ok I’ve raved enough, you can take it or leave it but I couldn’t stay silent anymore. Too many people think of Jesus as some kind of cool random hippy in sandals… but he definitely knew his heritage AND destiny: Jehovah.

    jesus was of his time and place
    he said some cool things
    a lot of them contradict jehovahs capriciousness
    and his violent bloodthirstiness
    jehovah was invented by the israelites of ancient times
    a tent god
    his exploits are laughable and a lot of them are stolen from other sources
    the israelites merely appropriated them
    and then guess what?
    the guys writing the stuff are this gods chosen people
    aint that strange?
    anyway after lots of childish malarkey and obvious
    myth n nonsense
    jehovah (after messing with job)
    falls strangely silent
    not a squeak
    jesus chryste comes along
    he is a like a new type of philospher
    with some very buddhist like takes on life on earth
    he certainly believed in a god
    but surely not that tired old make believe tosser
    jehovah who drowned the world
    who sent plagues on egypt
    who showed favouritism n nepotism
    who had bears tear youths apart
    who nuked sodom n gomorra
    who fucking with abrahams head to see if he was loyal
    who knocked down walls of cities
    and was random jealous petty and small minded
    im sorry but that fucking dude did not create this planet i live on…i dont know about you..
    but my god doesnt act like a tyrannical 3 year old
    with omnipotent powers
    my god is a genius
    my god is a lover
    my god is an artist
    my god would never burn or drown a world
    my god would not hurt a fly
    jehovah…wise up…it was written a long time ago
    by people who didnt know much better..
    do you really think thats the way the world works?
    jesus was a cool cat
    a lot of the stuff about him ransoming our sins was accretion
    added in by the boy buggering catholic church
    so holy!

    Its the estradiol that women of the hourglass variety apparently have,
    marilyn, angelina, etc.
    It also makes these women more reproductive,
    the wonder of human biology.
    You betta watch out tho
    it makes us serial monogomists, as in we partner up for a number of years, then move on (but not always…)
    Whimisically stable i guess
    Much Love
