Black Tears

Hi Everyone! Even though I've only had a couple of spare hours this past week, I painted a quick acrylic expressionist/abstract inspired painting reflecting the recent earthquake and tsunami in Japan. I'm going to give half of my art and music sales to the Red Cross Japan earthquake relief: You can still find my new art hanging at Couth Buzzard Books Espresso Buono Cafe. My heart goes out to Japan, and may healing occur quickly. I also recently found a track, Black Tears, which I recorded when I recorded my Fornicated Infinity album in the Bay Area in 2000. Randy Hansen is playing guitar on this track, and a rapper named Poison raps in the middle of the song. I have finally figured out how (or more specifically where) to post my songs so that I can link them to my blog and other sites. You can find the 'Fornicated Infinity' album at cdbaby, and the single of Black Tears will be available there soon too -

Door to Strangeness

Hi Everyone! The reason why I haven't posted in awhile is because I have been lost in the Himalayas. I was almost eaten by a Bengal tiger, and I was bitten by a pit viper. Thank God I am home safe, and I'm healing rapidly. Since my adventure I've played a lot of gigs - Twilight Zone. I wonder when I can get off this roller coaster and begin working on my goals solely once more in my life. I finished this acrylic painting tonight which I started last week. The real picture is larger than the scanner, so this is only a cropped version of the painting until I get a full size picture of it uploaded onto my computer. I think some of my new (since January 2011) expressionist inspired paintings are still hanging at Couth Buzzard Books Espresso Buono Cafe - 8310 Greenwood Ave N.
I may write a poem to partner with my painting, but it will have to wait till tomorrow.
For now this video link compliments the picture well.
