A male model at last! David Hill. One who's portrait I've seen around for some time.

This first painting is by Lynn Rogers. Her work will be scattered throughout .
Here's a Facebook item featured on the front page of Metro about the cross country trip Beat Generation Ken Kesey and Neal Cassady took in an old bus in the 60's.
Lynn painted part of the bus for the film.

CHRISTINA LIFE SKETCH MODEL HAIKUISH
STONE GRIFFIN GALLERY
CAMPBELLCALIFORNIA
August 11, 2011

Raw and Unvarnished as I Rendered the Pictures,
Save for Just a Few Minor Cosmetic Changes

Every Visual Artwork and Motif
Should Include These Extra Poetic Dimensions


 Too Late or Too Soon Improvised Tanka,
Out of Season

Radio playing
“Christmas Time is Here”
on a mid August night.
Lines of her form and contours
after Alexander Calder.


The Blues

Heat combines with Art.
Marine layer August breeze
and classic sketch pose.


Paradox

The more I
screw up,
the better
I get.

I look upon nudes
to learn pure morality.
Christina’s visage.


Improvised Sylph Galactic Cluster

Nobel Prize
Higher Physics.
I’ve accomplished
what Einstein
never could.
I’ve ridiculously
elongated
a beautiful woman.
I must be composed
of condensed
neutronium
dark matter
transforming me
into
a gravitational
funhouse mirror.
I love it!


Energy Field Haiku

Female vocalist
Never have I seen pure form
as now – jazz solo.


Christina Twenty Minute Meanderings

Indescribable -
her subtle beach jazz fluid
pure feminine form.

I learn chastity
geholding her nude contours.
Art transforms all dreams.

Timer outside time
she merges into boulders,
swims without movements.


Final Pose

Statues stand alive
teaching us moral lessons.
Chaste nude purity.

And what of the stars
that adorn her lightbody?
What does her skin song?

“Titanic” Rose lives.
Sun and moon, flower tattoos –
soft skin trinity.

Pinkish twilight veil,
silky robe over shoulders.
Soft glow innocence.
