Preview: "Honey" and "Nectar"

Here are some photos of two of my newest oil paintings... worked on top of some studies from a week or two ago.

Sorry for the low-quality photos, scans to come soon.

"Honey" and "Nectar"

(Notice the tiny scull on the hummingbird!)

I just need to glaze them and paint the sides black and they will be finished!

I'm really enjoying the way your work seems to be evolving now that you've taken up oils. This is the year for oil painting (it's one of my goals to learn how to use them this year).

Can't wait to see what's in store!

The TWO Marian Dogmas.Significance: replacing the patriarchally neurotic, incoherent, indeed Monophysitic misconception, virgin motherhood idea, clearly making it entirely redundant. Christ was conceived the natural way, since if not, he wouldn't be really human. On the other hand we avoid the Nestorian trap: the Son was sexually conceived as well. From this it follows that the Trinity is femally dubbed and paired, albeit invisibly so. (This is one important aspect of the Number's manifold. Beastly?) The possibility of sinless intercource is exclusively female Grace, matching the Male priestly prerogative. Body/Matter and Head/Mind; Yin/Yang. The Big Duality again.




There's much in the world that you can't explain.
It's revealed for you to remember
by the whispering voice of a distant train
or a midnight rain in november.

Horizon within! You can always find
the keys to Enigma. Let's mention
one basic Truth: of spirited Mind
Is Nature naught but extension.

Internal expanses! In dreams, ridden
by fear and longing you roam
that deep Southeast in your soul hidden
...on your random journey back home.

Single Swingle


Casualidad sopla la sangre
de alguno señor desconocido
durante los pocos restantes
momentos del resplandor de faroles

que se vislumbran tras el follaje
flameando de las obsesiónes
igual efimero como gotas
del cinzano de la soledad –

En aquel tiempo me levanta
dentro uno incidente avejentado
que en seguida palidece
al camouflaje de abstraccion;

chica, nadie conoce que tus grisos
ojos significan aún; con todo
el sueño que hube evacuado
tu escudriñas nuevamente.

My Spanish poetry!



Un orage nocturne illmuna maintenant l'Amazonie, franchis les Andes, envoya des jeux de cartes gigantesques et frappantes en bas à la Pampa –

Puis: petit déjeuner à melon; café fumant !

À la bague du cigare tu lis, étonné: GÉOGRAPHIE.



And: reciprocity. You do me a favor promoting your blog on mine!

Thank you so much guys! Again, sorry for the crappy photos, they look much better in person, I swear!

Love the portraits. I also work mostly in watercolour / gouache so I'm curious how you found the transition to oils

The pictures are not that crappy, but we won't complain if you post more views of the paintings. Are these for a show or just studies?
