POEMS

1 [For more on ideas for a revolution in art see http://tinyurl.com/38a5txu ]

Modern art
you've lost your way.
I'd rather see
a comic book,
fashion drawings,
or children's art,
an illustration,
or anything but
Modern art
you've lost your way!

2

The wave has edges but where do they go
when the wave unfurls, uncurls, and calms?

3 [Saluting the 30's pulp crime fighters]

Doc Savage knows about The Shadow
as if it was his own.
And Cranston knows of the Man of Bronze
and his group of friends.

They cut up Gotham like a cake
into night and day.
Doc and his men took dawn to dusk
and the Shade kept the night at bay.

4 [Here's an oldie from past years, to celebrate spring]

At first
one says,
"Look
a blossom!"

SAYINGS

If Atlas held up the Earth, who held up the Moon?

If you can add an edge to a Major 7th chord - which is so sweet sounding by itself - you get a deeper more bitter sweet sound that seems to me more profound.

On large cafe portions: This is enough to feed 5 healthy adults!

Test for bad art: Would the wall look better without it?

Sometimes when I'm finishing a portrait it seems like I've stopped adding paint, and am now putting on makeup.
