'Ghosts in the Night'

I did not paint this painting for Halloween.  This 24" x 24" piece is painted on a wood panel just for fun, having been inspired by the graining in the wood panel.  Happy Halloween to those that celebrate the event.

carlglyph:  Mr. Disenchanted.

 'Mr. Disenchanted'

 I once was asked “Why the long face?”

For on this earth I feel out of place

We wonder what’s causing the overheating of our globe

Man’s extraction of oil will cause this earth to explode

Our earth has a cooling system with a natural lubricant

The oil in the system, it’s the earth’s coolant

Massive explosion will cause great balls of flame

It’s all man’s fault and that’s really a shame

Extraction of oil

From under the soil

Will cause this earth to spoil

I'm Mr. Disenchanted, that’s why the long face

  

While discussing the truth of the warming of globe

The stripping of coal will help this earth to explode

Insulation of earth is what’s seen in coal

Some say moneymaking is only their goal

Coal is not a clean energy

Some strip it from earth and burn it with glee

Millions of years it took to produce

Give man just a while and of coal he’ll reduce

We’ll be left in the cold without insulation

Stop the mining now with no procrastination

But who’s listening to me, Mr. Disenchanted?

These wishes of mine probably won’t be granted

Yet remember my words come from me not

My Gods have told me why this earth‘s getting hot

For the reasons I’ve mentioned above, plus some more

With rising sea levels we’ll be looking for the shore

Ignore me, that’s okay, if you really must

But in my Gods words you really should trust

I’m disenchanted with life on this earth

That’s why the long face

 

So here I am now begging someone to listen

For my time on this earth; this is part of my mission

Stop drilling of oil, make that a goal

And also stop the mining of coal

With wind and water and solar we’ll see

Renewable energy is what it should be

That powers our earth that by gods we've been given

Of these goals I’ve set forth we all should be driven

To make the changes of here I have spoken

Please allow my words to serve as a token

Words of peace and energy I’ve hurled

Peace must come to all on this world

O, ye of long face

Mr. Disenchanted

That's why the long face

'Little House on the Prairie'

I have used this several times in the past as an illustration for this blog, but I really haven't discussed this painting before.  This 24" x 24" wood panel is covered with acrylic paints (regular and metallic), pencil, colored pencil, marker, and charcoal.  This painting has the most time involved of any of my pieces of artwork.  There is a lot going on in this piece.  I am putting this up for sale soon in a gallery.

'Pearl White on Green'

This is one of my newest paintings.  It is a 12" x 18" acrylic on canvas board.  This soothing abstract was a spontaneous, quick creation, happening from blank canvas to finality in about ten minutes.  Back in my earlier years of painting I was able to create "rapid-fire"  pieces of artwork, but lately they have been few and far between.  So this one is a pleasant surprise.  'Pearl White on Green' is going in a gallery, soon, for sale.

'The Second Coming'

As King of carlWorld, I would like to express my thoughts on what is happening in the Congress of The United States of America at this time.  I think that the Republicans in both houses are fully to blame for this unnecessary government shutdown and are being very childish, at the least.  But their childish behavior is incredibly dangerous for a Country that calls itself a Superpower.  If I, King Carl, had any power in the real world, I would declare The Tea Party an economic terrorist organization and identify it as an Enemy of The State.  Once I made my declaration official, which would be immediately, The Tea Party and anyone associated with or identified as a Tea Party member or sympathizer would be an economic terrorist.  Since it is already illegal (in carlWorld) for terrorists to hold public office, all Tea Party members of Congress would be immediately resigned from office, temporary representatives from another political party would be chosen to represent the constituents of the Tea Party Terrorists in Congress until the next elections in 2014.

The Tea Party is a sub-party of The Republican Party and if The Republican Party continues to act as an umbrella to shade the Tea Party from the sunlight of truth and reality, then that would mean that The Republican Party is aiding and abetting an Enemy of The State and would therefore become, by way of a Declaration of The King, a terrorist organization, as well.  But, as King, my advice to the members who identify themselves as Republican, it is in their best interest to not provide any support, financially or otherwise, for the "tea bagger terrorists".

As King of carlWorld, I am able to draw distinction between my fictitious "world" of carlWorld and the reality of the real world.  However, that does not change my opinion about what is happening in the Congress of The United States of America at this time.  As a citizen of The United States, I believe that The Department of Homeland Security should place the label of Economic Terrorists' Organization on The Tea Party and it should become an Enemy of The State.  Once that is done, all  members of Congress in both Houses that are identified as Tea Party members should be immediately kicked out of Congress, a temporary replacement from a different political party shall be chosen to represent the constituents of the ousted Tea Party Terrorists until the elections of 2014.  This goes for ALL Tea Party Terrorists in both the House of Representatives as well as the United States Senate.  From the time that the Tea Party Terrorists are kicked out of office till the time of their deaths they should never be allowed to hold public office, in any capacity, ever again.

I do realize that what I think should happen will NEVER happen in reality, because there is not a single person in our Government that has the courage or backbone to label The Tea Party an Organization of Economic Terrorists, even if it is true.  Politics is a Brotherhood, after all.

'Little Miss Disappointed'

We have now witnessed another Republican led Shutdown of our Government, having seen the last one seventeen years ago.  This Shutdown was absolutely unnecessary, driven only by the Republican Congress member's disdain (outright hatred?) for President Obama.  I, personally, am not a fan of the Affordable Care Act (ACA, aka, Obamacare).  Unfortunately, the ACA was based on a Republican plan, which means that, from the start, it was burdened with inferior ideology. The main reason I do not like the ACA is that I do not think it goes far enough in providing true universal healthcare to every single citizen of the United States of America.  Even after the ACA reaches its full effect, there will still be about 40 million Americans without healthcare coverage.  I am especially disappointed with the individual mandate part of the ACA, because it is a law for a Corporate Capitalistic Society's healthcare system, not befitting a society like the Superpower of the United States of America.  I wanted a universal single-payer system of healthcare because that is what a true Superpower would have.  Many, here in America, proclaim us to be a superpower, so we should have the best form of healthcare in the world.  But, just because I do not like the ACA does not mean that I want it repealed or defunded.  Quite the contrary.  I want the ACA fixed, which means, somehow, it should be converted into a single-payer system that is truly a Universal Healthcare System.

 Regardless that The Republicans in Congress have caused another irresponsible Shutdown of our Government, a major provision of the Affordable Care Act starts today, and that is the Healthcare Marketplaces open for business.  What this means, for now, is that many people who did not have any healthcare coverage can now shop for possible types of affordable healthcare plans, so that is good.  What I do not like about Obamacare is that, by law, we are being forced to make payments to corporations or be penalized with fines.  That is truly a Corporate Capitalistic Healthcare Plan.  And to think, The Republicans have tried to paint the ACA as a Socialist agenda, which is an absolutely ignorant, blatant lie.  We should not expect anything else from The Republican Party other than fear and falsehoods.

It is unfortunate that political ideology has to reign supreme within the two legislative Chambers in our Government instead of responsible leadership for the people.  I will repeat, THIS current Government Shutdown, like the last, is absolutely unnecessary, and totally irresponsible, and I place all of the blame on the shoulders of the Republicans in The House of Representatives and The United States Senate.  The twenty-day Shutdown of winter 1995-96 ended up costing the U.S. taxpayers over one billion dollars at that time.  How much will this Shutdown cost?  The Republicans are NOT fiscally conservative, nor are they fiscally responsible.  And in light of seeing what is happening in Congress, I believe The Tea Party should be labeled a terrorist organization, an enemy of The State.  That is my opinion.
