Magnolia...from the back...



UPDATE JUST BEFORE CANADA DAY JULY 1ST, 2010: MAGNOLIA IS SOLD...SORRY...


Signed at the back in walnut oil paint made by Kama Pigments in Montreal, Quebec, Canada...
White that you see is just some Gesso (which is white colour pigment powder plus some glue plus some gritty dust all mixed together) to protect the linen from the oil paint from the signature, title & dimensions & date...
Wood is sustainable Basswood...Canadian...
Wire is copper from Canadian Tire...
Screw & eye for wire put in by Sari...
Linen is Belgian bought in from a retailer in Canada though, 10 weight, strong but not too thick...

Blackwater, religion, baking soda, two socks...not in order...

Psalms 42:7 Deep calleth unto deep at the noise of thy waterspouts: all thy waves and thy billows are gone over me. On Google today...

" ole blackwater keep on shining Mississippi moon won't you keep on shining...on me...like to hear some funky Dixiland pretty mama won't you take me by the hand by the hand hand take me by the hand pretty mama I'd like to dance with you baby all night long..." On Q107 FM today 1:42 pm...

Religion is a hierarchy...each sect is a different level...the basics are, Gentile, then Jewish then Christian...You have to start at the beginning & work your way along...You cannot just start at the hardest religion & expect to understand it...Each person, like water, must find his or her own level...Trying to make someone do an upgrade before they are ready is like trying to feed a baby a steak instead of milk...Too soon, could be dangerous...As an artist, you must also know there is a hierarchy...Trying to do a full blown painting before you know about say one colour, say yellow, well, how could you possibly do that? First, start with one thing...Learn it, well...Now you can do one thing well...Then try one more thing...Try the colour blue, that is harder...One day you will be ablt to work with red...Harder than blue & yellow...Now you have three colours you understand...Maybe then you can make a three colour painting, maybe...

Wear two socks on each feet...Prevents blisters & feels nice all day...Change both socks in the middle of the day if your feet are tired or sweaty...Put two new ones on each foot...Now you are a happier person...

Put some baking soda, a drop into your water...Drink that...It will alkalinise your acidic city water & make you feel better , ease your acid stomach & help you poo...
