The Queen of the DMV

So, confession time: I never learned how to drive. I way older than a teenager and I just never wanted to drive. I love being a passenger and Uber rocks.

I do need an i.d. thought. Since I never have it out – it expired on my birthday LAST AUGUST so months later – oops I need it and it’s expired. So I go to the DMV and this woman was a total cow to me. I need my birth certificate and more i.d. 

Okay fine. Then she has an issue with how my name went from my maiden name to my name today. We need to show how that change happened. 
I was just standing there staring……. I never had to do this before. 

I went home without an i.d. I am going back with both sets of divorce papers, my social security card, my birth certificate and some bills for that hooker and watch, someone really cool will be working and think I am a total nutcase for bringing all this i.d.

This is a 3×3-inch painting on a little canvas. Ready to hang and no framing necessary. 

At the time of this writing, this piece was available in the eBay store. If you get there and it’s not there, it’s off living life with a happy collector.

The Lilac Sisters 6×9 Outsider Art Painting

 

 

lilacsisters2lilacsisters1I had this address book for decades. It was sturdy, reliable and wonderful. I moved with it from state to state and filled it up. Then last year the back finally came off and I decided to retire it. The front and back covers were a very heavy book board material so I painted it.

My youngest spawn wanted to make some leaf prints with some leaves off our li lac bush so that became the form for the three sisters. 🙂

Robot Wins 8×10 Original Acrylic Painting

robotwins1As you know, I like to paint directly on photos. I found an old beat-up movie still from the 1956 B-classic, “Earth vs. the Flying Saucers.” The photos had some wear and damage so I mounted it carefully on a heavy mat board and then painted it. Added some flames along the fence line in the back. Gotta love the 1950’s and their phallic robots.

About this piece

This is a photo still mounted on a heavy mat board and painted directly on the piece.

That Time Monsters Attacked Dresden

My friend Stephen gave me a stack of vintage postcards from around 1902 to 1914 are the dates I have found so far. This one needed monsters and if you never believed the monster attack in Dresden happened, here is PROOF on a postcard from the time and it says very plainly, “…Dresden…is full of monsters” see? I told you!

I Had Some Dreams They Were Clowns in My Coffee… original painting on vintage postcard from 1902

clownsinmycoffee1

This came from a very funny story I was told by someone who can really belt out a tune and loves karaoke, but she learned one night singing “You’re So Vain” that she had one of the lines wrong all this time.

A friend gave me a huge stack of vintage postcards and I had to do a painting commemorating our very amusing conversation. I had to go listen to the song to see if I could that line… not really… but it’s still pretty funny. Apparently she’s not the only person that misheard that lyric according to an in-depth search on the web that lasted like 5 minutes.

This is painted on a vintage postcard postmarked 1902. The size is 3.5 x 5.5 inches.

The Proper Praying Technique God Only Listens To

properpraying1

So, you know how certain churches go door to door and want to find out where you’re at spiritually? I live in Holy Toledo and we seem to have a little more than our fair share of people knocking on our door wanting to sell me Jesus. Now, I am never rude. In fact, I listen, ask questions, and am polite. I am a lifelong atheist but I’m certainly not knocking anyone else for believing. I just don’t want to be involved.

One day two women came by and they were giving me the spiel about saving my immortal soul, yadda yadda yadda and then a woman told me that she would tell me how to pray.

She asked if that is why I didn’t believe in God wasn’t it? My prayers didn’t get answered! Well, she told me if you do not hold your fingers straight, perfectly STRAIGHT – God doesn’t listen. If you intertwine and fold your fingers, well you’re just praying to yourself she told me with a knowing smile.
Now you know.

That inspired this and about 4 other artworks that live in happy homes – this is the last one. She’s praying properly and there are old Christian symbols around the piece.
