barra (a Southern journey cont.)

a poem titled ‘nobody speaks for the self’ (language warning for those sensitive spirits)

I am not the art on a magic bus
I am not the son who under performed
I am not the anger that past enraptures me with
I am not the suffering of a penance I’ve been carrying for years
I am not the human who rapes and pillages this Earth
I am not the asshole who you think I am
I am human
born to make mistakes
and to create
I am the black sheep fleeing the herd
here to be present in this mystical land
to surf the waves the ocean presents
to find my spirit
and to liberate the lies
I am here to experience a simple life
the one I have dreamed of
for most of my life

I am
nobody
in particular
in this place.

Deadman

If the doors of perception were cleansed, everything would appear to a man as it is: infinte. -William Blake, Deadman

This is another of my famous person portraits, which I also refer to as my painter paparazzi series. I enjoy painting people who are passionate and dedicated to their artform(s), as well as those who have influenced my artistic path, stoking the fire as it were. This portrait is Johnny Depp in Jim Jarmusch’s ‘Deadman’ (1995) one of the best history lessons I have received in this lifetime, and what Jarmusch calls a ‘psychedelic western’, my kind of film.
