" He's Touched Your Perfect Body" (2020)
"Mercy's Ladder" (2020)
This painting commemorates a certain period, when I left Myrtle Beach in mid-1997 after having lived there for six years, because I could not find a female partner, basically. I went back to St. Louis, my home town, and did my best to "do things to get my life together." I felt Meher Baba gave me, so to speak, a series of "steps" that became sort of like rungs on a ladder. All of this culminated, after a year, in my meeting Barbara, my wife of basically twenty years now. We connected on the "Baba-Talk" list-serv, began a friendship, gradually became very close, and after a year of visiting one another, I moved here to California, and we've been together ever since. There is a song by this title on my CD, Love's River.
"He Gave Me a Honeycake with Enough LOVE in It to Bring in a New Age Not Just for Me but for the Whole World!" (dream from the '80s, painted in 2020)
