Burgundian Death

This is a scroll for an SCA ( event that is happening tomorrow. It is for the person who dies best in the tournament! The event is Burgundian themed and this was based on a page from The Master of Mary of Burgundy, a book of hours. The original picture is for the Office of the Dead, I made only a few minor changes to the original. I took out one skull and put in the populace badge for my Barony. And I put the name of the Barony on the banner instead of whatever was originally written there. I still have to do the calligraphy on this, but wanted to post just the art first. This is about 7 1/2 x 9, Acrylic and ProWhite on velum (the skin not the paper).  Prints available. Picture 66.

Great Song

Grace Slick did a great solo album called "Dreams" I love almost everything on it. Here is just one of the wonderful songs!

Big Gray Guy

This was done as a prize for an SCA event many years ago. It is based on a 1500's enameled jewelry piece. It is a Father Satyr figure. I also did a Female/Mother version. Both were done in Acrylic on gray paper and were about 5 feet tall.  I hope I have not posted this before.

Baby Corum

I found this old picture of one of our cats. This is Corum who is about 10 now but was just a kitten in this picture. He is laying on a sheep skin I think. He is a sweet and loving cat.

You Choose to follow a Religion, you DO NOT choose your Sexuality!

Thursday, October 14, 2010

I deleted the comments from the original post because I completely disagree with anyone who thinks being gay or straight is a choice! If you think they are a choice, I think you are very wrong and playing into the hands of those who would deny Gay rights using that argument! You may be born into a religion but it is NOT immutable, you CAN easily in most cases, chose to follow a different faith or no faith at all. Who you are attracted to sexually/emotionally is NOT a choice! There is more than a little scientific evidence that shows an actual physical difference in the brains and genetic factors of Gay men compared to straight men and women. So if you want to comment on this post and you think being gay is a choice, DON'T comment!

And yet the Law Acts as if we ARE a Christian Nation

This is an EXCELLENT tutorial on the truth of our so called "Christian Nation"!

Back to the Fights

Even More lil Imp

Normally, I would never do this, especially since the two parts will never be together as a matted framed original. But, I just had to see all of him so, I painted the bottom part of little imp, scanned it and have put them together in "paintshop". So this is available as a special print. Lil Imp (full body).

Still Working Out The Bugs

I am trying anything I can to get myself back to doing art I feel is good quality. This is still far from my normal quality (in my opinion). But I enjoyed doing it and it came out more or less as I had hoped. The title is from a song by Shinedown (I was listening to them while working on this), it just seemed to fit somehow. Also, I consider this a Halloween inspired picture. I hope I can get to the commissions I own people soon.

National Coming Out Day

Well, they have been doing this for several years and I don't see that it has been a great success, but we have to take what we can get. If you are gay and have not come out yet, please consider doing so! Be sure you have friends and family who you know will support you, even if your family won't (or you think they won't) be sure you have friends who can have your back. Most people are surprised when they come out at just how many of their family and friends already know! If you are an adult and lying to everyone to try and hide being gay, you are doing yourself and those who care about you a disservice. Be yourself and be free!
I don;t know if I have posted this before but I decided "Bluebird and the Serpents Tooth" would be a good picture to post in honor of today. If you are not honest with yourself you are wounded and need to heal.

Enlightenment Might Make My Head Explode

This weble is not here so I can spout every crazy thought I have (like so many seem to be). But My recent realization that Christianity is not a good or honest religion and that I am not a Christian has made me become VERY angry with the bigotry and hate perpetrated by "the Church" and "people of faith" especially towards Gays! We are born gay but they chose to believe a religion that says we should be hated and discriminated against. I have also realised that Politics are like religion and both are simply ways for Corporations to control and manipulated people. It doesn't matter in the end what you believe or what party you belong to because in the end Big Business is running everything and using false differences of ideal or belief to keep us fighting each other while they abuse everyone and steal money and life form us.

I hope the revolution and/or complete enslavement of the common man does not happen until after I am dead. In another 50 years something big will happen I have no doubt, but I won't live another 50 I just hope I can close my eyes to what is happening and enjoy life while I can. I feel sorry for the children who will end up dealing with the worst of this when they are adults and the worst stuff happens.

Everything is an illusion and we are being played against each other for greed by Corporations.

Reworked Art

In 2008 I did a picture with  glass winged butterfly wings on a blond fairy boy. I was VERY happy with the leaves and plants around him, and he was OK, but somehow the picture just did not work. I just repainted parts of it and I think it is better now. "Watch Where You Step" (new title), 10 x 10, Acrylic and watercolor colored pencil on Canson board.
