Italy Nearing the End

So... here is the last of the Italian paintings...
It's a pastoral landscape-- somewhere outside of Luca. I've finally gotten the hang of several of the pigments that allow me to work the surface of paint -- but still remain depth and lush in color.

It's almost like craft-paint --- but the matte looks does better for the follow up glazes.

Now that I'm almost finished... I'm a little sad to see the hard work draw to a close.

I have only two more panels [still waiting for them from Cheap Joe's].. and a few little one.

Hurry up!

As a native Swede, I am particularly proud of my love poetry suite Sonnets for Katie.

My Poems

My wallpaper art Babes!

Sexuality introduces Death to Being; and indeed Life simultaneously. This is the profound Myth of the Eden. The work of the Serpent. Bringing us out of "blessed" Standstill. So, in contrast to the mindless pietism of vulgar Christianity, my personal "Christo-Satanism" should be given serious thought by the Enlightened Few, the Pneumatics, the 1% Outlaws. The Light Bringer must be rehabilitated, beacause if not, the All of it simply doesn't make sense: true Catholicism is necessarily Meta Catholicism.

My philosophy

My poetry in French:

Po├ętudes

My poetry in German:

Fremde Gedichte

And: reciprocity: for mutual benefit, you will do me a favor promoting your own blog on mine!

Yours,
