Its in Your Head, its all in Your Head

Sunday, August 26th, 2012

Doo – dah – dah – day – da- dow
They were watching you by the riverbed
You had something going on in your head
They were aware, they were aware
But trying really hard not to stare

COS IT’S IN YOUR HEAD
IT’S ALL IN YOUR HEAD
AND IT WILL NEVER EVER COME TRUE
IT’S IN YOUR HEAD
IT’S ALL IN YOUR HEAD
DON’T WORRY THEY WON’T GET YOU

You were fumbling about with your pen
Trying hard to avoid all the staring men
Your paranoia had taken over
If only you could run for cover

BUT IT’S IN YOUR HEAD
IT’S ALL IN YOUR HEAD
AND IT WILL NEVER EVER COME TRUE
IT’S IN YOUR HEAD
IT’S ALL IN YOUR HEAD
DON’T WORRY THEY WON’T GET YOU

You know what they said
They said you were odd
And you knew, and you knew it
But forget them I say
Just go outside and play
Get them out, out of your mind!

We were watching as you wandered round your room
You were dancing with a beautiful broom
But you were happy and it showed on your face
So they decided to close your case

a reminder to get out of your head, and the art will make itself!
more good

Puppet Show, Damned V, Sassafras in a closet and J swimming at Night

Sunday, August 19th, 2012

Oil on canvas

In the theatre of the absurd, the puppet master is a single female figure who thoughts are split between ideology and reality at she manipulates her alter ego puppets below and colludes in her own subjugation. The idea comes from the notion of some to over turn Roe v Wade and take away a woman’s right to decide for herself what to do with her own body.

I did all the under painting in acrylic so this painting took less than a week to do. this painting will be featured in the Damn Show:

My little girl pug Sassafras loves to sit on garbage bag, it doesn’t matter much what is inside them but clothing or blankets or towels are particularly appealing to her royal needs 😀 Yes she is descended from Royalty sired from Prince Pugliese, its true!

So she spied this garbage bag in the craft corner of a closet and crawled right on in to make herself comfy 😀

This is a photo of the hub swimming at night, I think it looks cool.

Have a great day and a smooth sailing week

Damn Heels

Sunday, August 12th, 2012

I have quite a few paintings that I am painting over as they were just unsuccessful, this is one that I have painted over. Its kind of a hybrid. I kept the legs from the painting it used to be and what sprouted out was this somewhat whimsical figure. The canvas is fair big 18 x 36

Damn heels

I might use it for our holiday card with the caption “Happy freakin Holidaze!” I think its funny and reflects the stress and unhappiness so typical of the season

Finished, Swan Song
