You Can Only Be Free...

I've waited too long to have you
Hide in the back of me
I've cheated so long I wonder
How you keep track of me

You could never be strong
You can only be free
And I never asked for the truth
But you owe that to me

I've entered the game of pricks
With knives in the back of me
Can't call you or on you no more
When they're attacking me

I'll climb up on the house
Weep to water the trees
And when you come calling me down
I'll put on my disease

You could never be strong
You can only be free
And I never asked for the truth
But you owe that to me
And I never asked for the truth
But you owe that to me
And I never asked for the truth
But you owe that to me

Crossing


I haven't felt the urge to write much in the last few weeks, or do any sort of postings due to some shake ups and changes that occured recently. I may go into it more at a later point, but I want some distance from all of it. I will however be posting more works that I'm in the midst of here in my studio, and look forward to some daunting challenges that lie ahead for me.



I have finished the biggest of my new Pour/Pull paintings titled Harbour. It measures out "48 x 60" and the ideas post this work have me fully engaged. It has been a long time since I was in a place with my work where I'm just painting in almost a pure sense of call and response, with no graphics or designs that come from a commercial or language based medium. It's for me, a bit like crossing a bridge with strong currents underneath, it has my heart racing, and I'm excited.
