Pink moon

Numbskull
Something happens
Life goes on
Something happens again
Life goes on
Something happens again
So I numb my skull.
-unknown

‘poetry doesnt pay anything, it was just a form I needed, a kind of a passionate pleasurable selfish nice form, where you can scream a little bit…I guess I needed to scream a little bit -Bukowski

Keep it

Sometimes it feels as if I have been numbed by the vastness of unrich glitch.
-Analog

A fellow I met gave me this drawing (well actually a print) from a wall of an office because he liked it but later didn’t want to hang it because he felt guilty, however he did ask me to paint on it and this information came out following completion of the painting sesshin, and what turned out to be some kind of confessional. I told the man to take the now renewed image and place it on the wall he took it from, I said the developer might appreciate the updated version. As far as I know the man kept the painting….

Winter’s hold

Winter’s hold
A stubborn mule
Spring on mind
It can never come too soon.

Fotomahaloness -winter can be stubborn and will test the resolve of most Canadians. Climate has always fascinated me, weather is part of every Canadians vocabulary, and whether we love it or hate it, it is a season we see for at least 6 months of the year. Last image portrays the arrival of spring, ink on paper called “Spring!” Copyrighted 2013 hälts

Once upon a time near Ho’okipa

There is magic and there is work, you cannot have one without the other.

Fotomahaloness -despite the fact art is often undervalued and lacks integrity due to being entrenched in a society that is seemingly attached to favoritism, and popular trends, if it’s not a trend or a cause it is not worth it! My reaction to this is that the work must be done, and just to support this statement, the fotomahaloness below is some of my work, which I call night art, made in pitch black in the middle of a field next to my love, Lady Pacifica. The mural was covered over by Kone 2012 a day later. So why do it? Why do anything? When do we say enough’s enough, when do we say ‘I don’t want to numb myself!’ or accept the mediocre! As long as the world turns and I am here, I will continue to provide my service, whether or not that is deemed as valuable, the one thing I do know is that the art works, it moves, it is kid approved, and there is plenty of more work to do, even when it gets painted over, or shunned, this is alright, it is the cycle of life, thats what drives the process, the reaction to the action, the response to the absurdity, and on it goes again and again. And my art on a bus, magical, magic which no one can take away from me, for it is not for anyone to own.
