People Said

It’s been awhile. Come on in for a visit. Put your feet up. Here is a new painting for your perusal.


It’s been so long since I started this that I’ve lost the prebreen jpg – all that remains of the original is the head, collar and book of the reader, touched up a bit.

Upon first perusal of the prebreen, I noticed that the reader seemed a bit concerned bout what he was reading, as though he was reading something upsetting about himself. Of course if this book was the bible, then that would probably make him Satan. I titled the tome ‘Tell-All Bible Confidential’ Those who write these autobiographical exposes usually have an axe to grind, and God is no exception, his book being told from a particularly strong point of view.

The text here says’People Said He Resembled His Father! But Didn’t Share His Temper!’ Satan says,”Hmphh, I never said that!” Mother Nature says, “Tut, tut, no one believes autobiographies!”

According to the Bible, Angels are the sons of God, including the fallen ones, so Satan is also God’s son, albeit an extreme example of a black sheep. My point is Satan is more of the don’t get angry, get even type, while God always seems to be consumed by raging anger – not unlike Ranger Porter Ricks in the old ‘Flipper’ TV show, who was always punishing his sons Sandy and Bud for some minor rule infraction. I’m sure none of you get that one, you had to be there in the mid-sixties when there were 3 channels on TV and 2 of them were fuzzy.

Intelligent Design

AFTER BREENING

Text says,
‘George Was Not Intelligently Designed!’

Although this is painted on another painting, this is a rare, completely original breen with no part of the former painting showing. The other day I was thinking about intelligent design, clearing my mind, trying to be open to it and seeing how it sat. And I realized, it could be true! Our whole universe could have been created in the test tubes of some super intelligent Alien race! In the Bible, God doesn’t seem too smart, just pretty angry most the time that people aren’t paying him enough attention, so it didn’t seem likely that he really created everything – but Aliens! Why not? Hell, we did it with the Genesis Project in an old Star Trek movie!

Text says, ‘George was not intelligently designed!’

However, the biggest argument against intelligent design is George, so I tried to come up here with a feasible explanation. It’s obvious his circuitry can’t handle the programming – his addiction to booze(bottles bobbing in his oil drum head) gave way to an addiction to religion(represented by fish). Our Alien creators stand by in dismay – God took on John Lithgow’s features because my wife was watching the Kinsey movie while I painted this. Most of the circuitry behind the text is of an actual lie detector, which obviously doesn’t work, and I’ve added some nonsensical symbols.

I smell t-shirt on this one.
