" The awareness that we live in a time of pedaling bicycles in the midst of expressway traffic has been driven home of late. We’re getting further away from our foundational routes and we’re serving up children who haven’t been trained, don’t have a clue and are being prepared to join a mindless ever numbing society. It’s “all good” though, right?

BMW retools its manufacturing and implements all kinds of unique human help systems to allow older adults to work the line. What happens in this unique experiment is that productivity, attendance, quality, workmanship and myriad of other benefits to the company go through the roof.

Of course machines will take over. You don’t think humans will do the work do you? We are suffering over lawyered legislation, over taxation, unprecedented greed, moral decay which have all led to the overwhelming necessity of jobs for both partners. Church exodus, tolerance of decayed values and living one way and telling our children we don’t approve yet condoning everything they do. We don’t have time or worse don’t even have the mindset to care. We’re losing or we have totally lost our way.

“Train up a child in the way they should go and they will not depart from it” … The real question is how have we trained them and continue to train them.

Artists and especially art teachers have taken the easy road, accepted that self focused position that it’s about their work and scrapped the foundational training of great creativity and thinking for torn, paint laden shirts and the smell of turpentine.

Wake up before the only great paintings we have are done by dead painters."

“So easy to pick up and go another way
Forgetting the rules of the game and how to play
Doesn’t matter; doesn’t suit the way you feel
Carry on till something else catches your appeal
Didn’t matter who you damaged or what you do
Only thing that matters is it’s about you!”

“If you find a painting that captures your heart, give your heart to it. Priceless is the value of the relationship when true love is its foundation. Don’t throw it away. Have a great week!”

"Find my paintings, or may my paint-tings find you!"
