Spiritual Tsunami

I walk along the water, challenging the waves to come my way, to take me by surprise. I wonder if some day I’ll be taken by a tsunami. I practice the idea of it, of surrendering to the water, asking it to be gentle with me, to protect me from the violence of large human constructs being tossed recklessly like children’s toys. I envision a soft swirl of water circling within itself enclosing me in its womb and carrying me through the chaos unscathed in body and soul, holding me captive without air until I reach my forever destination. Merging, merging, total surrender into the mystical journey.

Abstract…color, value and balance

AbstractOkay, I already wrote this and it was lost in the great divide called web space.

Most recent finished work is this abstract on canvas 20 x 30 inches.  It is a exercise in color balance (not Fox kind) and value.

One views abstracts by squinting…so they look like shapes one sees in a room after waking from a previous evening indulging in copious amounts of tequila.

Abstracts and phone call

Okay I have several works on the easels and I will show them as soon as they are done or I am tired of working on them which,  always means I am done.  Am in  an abstract mode right now,  abstract … this is where I am going and they are a hoot to work with.

As for Politics, I may have to become like the impressionists and turn my back on the blatant stupidity which appears to be US.

Been writing and have a few chapters completed, I may post  them as short stories, (Am thinking out blog here)

Received a strange phone call today….phone rings I answer: “Hello”

On the phone: “Hi Bill?”

Me, “No”

Caller asks, “who is this”

I say, “You called me who is this, no Bills here”.

Caller, “This is Andy Beckstopper”.,

I ask…”Is there a connotation to the name?”

No answer, caller says “sorry, must have the wrong number”

Couple minutes later phone rings and  Bill calls and says, ” Hi Andy this is Bill ” (Sounded like the same guy with Texas Accent to me?)

I Reply, No… he just called me

Bill, “sorry”…hangs up.

Next time Andy Beckstoppr calls and asks for  my name….I will reply “Clint Torus”!

Me Bad!

Happy New Year and What the Frack

Okay, I have been busy with holiday and painting, writing and most importantly goofing off, in-between doing honeydews.

My attempt to have a separate political blog site seems doomed,  though I am a political junkie who should call myself Sir Tweets A lot, I spend much time wringing my hands solving the worlds problems to no avail…if only I where king.

This is my art site with occasional political ranting,  I will probably keep it this way, for having another blog is more than I want to deal with.

So it will be my goal to catch up on me art and do occasional political ranting for it is a way to keep ones common sense and  vent steam. Now I do not take politics lightly for some reason  politics seems to affect my life,  for instance I voted in the last election and am apparently only part of 35 percent of the people who voted,  so tis I am in a minority of a minority’s, which seems amusing when stepping back  looking at the election for the votes.

So here tis my inane political rant for today:

Many years the choreographed grooming of ignorance apparently has successfully manipulated people to vote against their own best interests. Many People will not accept facts or truth against their preconceived beliefs, which is really cognitive dissidence, for those barking dogmas must be right or ones world may crumble, this is true on just about anything, not just politics! We see it on Apples and PC’s, to Mormons and Catholics even football.  Difference appears a constant divisive divide  a necessity to keep the huddled masses bickering among themselves and focused on well groomed inane pettiness, always away from real issues which directly affect them. Always for the yin and yang of it?

Emulated “Reclining Lady reading”

Thanks to my fellow blogger Carrie for inspiration.

20140829_145551I it has been a while and I have been neglecting my blog… Reclining Lady Reading original was done back circa 1915 by impressionist Fredrick C Hannsenand. I really enjoy painting impressionists techenique, so when I first saw Hannsenand “Reclining lady reading” I loved the colors and the impressionist style, so I emulated it with this reproduction.

I do not know the size of the original, this one id 16X20 oil on canvas.
