MY, Definite Choice of Application Of Energy In This Atmosphere Of Relative Existence Is “ART”. I Choose My Expression In The Medium Of Oil/Canvas. I Try To Create Everyday, and It Gets More Difficult with, (The Economic Sanctions Against Disabled Artists) I Refuse To Be Ripped Off By The Art Mafia, and Therefore I Am Rejected, Dejected, Punished and Disowned. I Continue To Love and Forgive All Of Life, Because Of My Constant Affair. The Collection Grows More Every Month, and I Have 250 Oil/Canvas Images In My Possession, After A Lifetime Of Painting Over 2,000 Images. I Have A Few Thousand Digital Images Tweaked In Photo Shop, That Could Use A Large Format Printer and Supplies, To Create The Longest Continuous Gy-Clee Ever. I Had 3 shows In The Last 3 Years and Sold An Image At Each. I Have “Patrons”, That Have Already Purchased Images, And Offered To Sell Them Back, Because Of Their Financial Stress. I'd Buy Them If I Could, But Just My Rent For Studio, Storage, and Auto Expense Has Kept Me On Tilt For The Last 3 Years. No Gallery. No Salary.
I Don't Know How I Can Afford My Eye Surgery, I Have A Sympathetic Surgeon, GOD BLESS HIM.
Life Continues and Interesting Offers Come Around That Tempt Me, As They Insult My Intelligence, and Disrespect Me By Their Low Opinion Of My Value. I Was Offered $5,000 For 10 Of My Best Images. How Kind Dear Sir, But I Have To Go Somewhere and Slash My Wrists. I Did Trade For A Car That Gets 42 Miles Per Gallon and It Is Working Just Fine. I Hope Education Increases Intelligence
On The Planet. (Where all War Is Fought In A Video Arcade), and Art, That Is Harmless, Is Appreciated And Valued. Most Sports Pay Large Salaries, And Governments Send Money Overseas, But They Only Fund Young Artists. Nations Have Lost The Integrity They Cherished and Were Proud Of, As They Sponsored The Arts; And Artists Were Protected, and Encouraged To Create. I Want An “Art Colony” To Adopt Me. I Actually Want To Start An Art Colony, With Money That Was Previously Earmarked For “War”. I Wish For A Patron That Has Beauty As A Direction To Combine His Financial Prowess To This Project I Continue To Explain. The Land Is Available For $500,000. 20 acres. I Have Through Knowledge Of All Phases Of Construction Having Completed 15 Homes On The Big Island Hawaii. I Know Where All The Material Exists and The Natural Aggregates That Are Only Free If You Know Someone Here For 40 Years. The Finished Project Would Be A Model Of Self-Sufficiency. I Have A Detailed Plan and Crews Available With Equipment Ready. I Need That Certain Patron That Would Love To Experience The Beauty Of Hawaii, Creating The “Art Colony”. The Big Island Hawaii
Is A Diverse And Dramatic Place With A Few Temperature Climates That Offer Sun Or Rain, Desert, or Rainforest, and In The Winter You Can Ski or Snowboard and Surf On The Same Day. The Volcano Is Alive and Providing an Interesting Landscape With A Lava Flow That Meets The Ocean Creating New Land. This Is Home To Beaches Of White and Black Sand and Green Sand Created By Volcanic Olivine. (A Gem Stone Particle) The Sport Fishing Capital Is Kona, Hawaii Where All The Coffee Grows. (Best In The World) It Is The Largest Of All The Hawaiian Islands. Waimea, Hawaii Is Home To The Hawaiian Cowboys. Honokaa, Is Home To Slack Key Guitar Music and Falsetto Singing Competition. Hilo, Is My Home and A Quaint Town with A Mall and A Multiplex Movie Theater. The University Is Located Here and A Calender Of Events That Include Everything From East and West As A Cultural Experience. The Largest Japanese Garden Outside Of Japan, (40 Acres) Is Outside Of My Studio On Banyan Drive Which Has These Trees (Beautiful Giants) Lining The Drive. The Botanical s Include Orchids, Antirrhinums, Torch Ginger, Lillie's, Banana's, Avocado's, Coconut, Mango, Papaya,Citrus, Melons, and Different Teas, and Spices. Let's Get Started. Only $500,000 Will Guarantee An Art Colony That Will Be Entirely Self-sufficient, With Solar and Wind Electric Generation and Storage. As The Garden Grows New Concepts Would Be Entertained and Utilized If Feasible. This Is The Garden, This Is The Holy Land, This Is The Promised Land, The Only One We Will Ever Know. ALOHA
