Now is the time to make a difference.
Now is the time to make a difference.
He hides in the crowd
Afraid for his life
He curls up in panic
He knows there’s a knife.
He’s yanked to the fore
With nary thought
The cutting is quick
For those that are caught
The action is swift
Their life force is done
No more to shine
His days in the sun.
Death sweeps away
The thoughts and the cares
All that remains
Are discarded hairs.
I’ll take just a trim
Off my shaky old head
So toss them aside
Those cut hairs are dead!
I choose to be who I am.
I don’t want to the first at everything. I just want to be the one that lasted the longest.
I recently put my artwork in a show that will be on display for four months. If you are in the neighbourhood it can be found at The Queen Elizabeth Park Community and Cultural Centre at 2303 Bridge St, Oakville, Ontario.
Now since most of you are nowhere near, I thought I would give you a peek. All of these paintings were done between September 2017 and December 2018.
I hope you enjoy . . .

16 Paintings in total. I also included some of my quips on the little cards explaining the work. I did 5 paintings 20×24, 5 paintings 18×20, 5 painting 9×12, and one odd one. They are all acrylic on canvas or canvas board. It was an adventure for me. I wonder what’s next . . .
Oh, and if you are wondering what the writing is on one painting . . . here it is:
Water that is clean
Should be our right
Every new glass
As we hold it tight
We once dipped our toes
In crystal clean ponds
And dreamed of the day
When all nature bonds
Responsibility is ours
To make it all right
So never forget
It’s time now to fight!
We are all beautiful to those who are willing to look.
Some people act the fool so well one has to wonder if it really is an act.
I may not live in my memories but they are a comforting place to visit.
If you were a sign
what would you say?
This place is open
and ready to play?
If you were a note
Then what would be written?
I think I’m in love,
I’m sure I am smitten?
If you were the sky
Would you be a cloud?
With hard hitting rain
And fog like a shroud?
Or would you be sunshine
With beams full of hope?
For people to cope?
Would your sign say hello
With welcoming arms?
A fist full of dollars
And a head full of charms?
We all wear a sign
For others to see?
Let yours be so bright
The world fills with glee!
Some days I feel like a round peg living in a square world.
