I KNEW YOU WOULD COME. I HAVE BEEN WAITING. FOLLOWING THIS BRIEF WHATCHUMUHCALLIT, YOU ARE GOING TO SEE A SAMPLING OF MY CURRENT WORK. PRIOR, HOWEVER, I WISH TO ENLIGHTEN YOU THAT, UNLIKE MOST ARTISTS (WHO DO ONE PAINTING - THEN ANOTHER, AND ANOTHER - PERHAPS WITH EACH BEING A DEPARTURE FROM ANY RECURRENT, ONGOING "THEME"), MY WORK - CONCEPTUALLY, AT LEAST IN A NARRATIVE SENSE - IS TOTALLY SEQUENTIAL. ONE PAINTING FOLLOWS ANOTHER AS AN EXTENSION, OR A FURTHER DEVELOPMENT OF THAT WHICH PRECEDES IT. I AM "TELLING" A LONG STORY HERE...WITH THE PAINTINGS SERVING AS ILLUSTRATIONS OF "EPISODES" OCCURRING WITHIN THE STORY BEING TOLD. THE PAINTINGS ARE EXECUTED IN AGREEMENT WITH AN ORDERLY, AND CHRONOLOGICALLY ARRANGED NARRATIVE PROGRESSION, WITH EACH EPISODE SHARING A COCKEYED SIMILARITY TO OUR OWN PERSONAL EPISODES EXPERIENCED DURING THE MADNESS OF EXERCISING OUR LIVES SPENT HERE ON EARTH. IF THE PAINTINGS WERE TO BE REUNITED - BROUGHT TOGETHER AND PRESENTED ONE FOLLOWING THE OTHER IN THE SEQUENCE IN WHICH THEY WERE CONCEIVED, THE EFFECT WOULD BE THAT OF A VISUAL NOVEL...A SOAP OPERA...CONSISTING OF SNAPSHOTS ASSEMBLED INTO "CHAPTERS".

IF YOU HAVE VISITED BRENDA'S NUT FARM (A SECTION ENCOUNTERED SHOULD YOU HAVE VIEWED THE ENTIRE SITE) YOU WILL REALIZE THE STORY I AM TELLING (IN A NUTSHELL - NO PUN INTENDED) IS SERVICED (ACTED OUT) BY A HOST OF LITTLE CHILDREN-CREATURE CHARACTERS WHO ARE UP TO SOME PRETTY CONVOLUTED, SEEMINGLY POINTLESS, AND QUASI-SURREALISTIC NONSENSE; THE BULK OF THEIR "NONSENSICALNESS" BECOMING GENERATED WITHIN THE CONFINES OF BRENDA'S FARM; UNDER HER FRONT PORCH, WHERE THE CHILDREN-CREATURES SLEEP - IN THE FLOWER GARDEN ADJACENT TO HER PORCH - IN THE CENTER OF THE FARM, AND JUST OUTSIDE THE HOUSE OF THE FATHER (WHICH APPEARS AS A CASTLE OF SORTS - RISING FROM A LOW FOG IN THE WOODS).

OK, UPON VIEWING THIS BODY OF CURRENT, TRANSITIONAL PAINTINGS (ONE CLICK AWAY), YOU WILL BEGIN TO EXPERIENCE AN EVER-INCREASING APPARITION, ONE USUALLY OCCURRING DURING PASSOVER, OF THE HOLY VIRGIN - THE IMPERIAL MOTHER OF THE UNIVERSE - APPEARING BEFORE THE NUT FARM CREATURES, FREQUENTLY IN DISGUISE AS A HOUSE FLY, OR A GENERAL ELECTRIC REFRIGERATOR WHICH HAS BECOME LODGED IN THE TOP OF A TALL PECAN TREE - WITH HER DOOR OPEN, THE LIGHT ON, GIVING SUPPORT TO A WHOLE, SPIRAL-CUT, HONEY-ROAST PICNIC HAM RESTING ON HER THIRD SHELF UP FROM THE BOTTOM. AND WHILE THE "APPARITION" SCARES THE HOLY S--- OUT OF MOST OF THE CHILDREN - NAUGHTY BETTY, IN HER OWN WAY, UNDERSTANDS THE SIGHTINGS, AND BECOMES "SEMI-DANGEROUSLY" ACTIVATED, AND MOTIVATED BY THEM...

SO, IF YOU HAVE GONE INSIDE THE FARM DURING YOUR VISIT TO THE ENTIRE SITE, AND YOU HAVE MAINTAINED THE SUGGESTED INVENTORY OF ALL YOU WITNESSED THERE, AND YOU ARE NOW OUT, AND NOW HERE, GO AHEAD AND VISIT THIS "GALLERY OF CURRENT PAINTINGS". YOU WILL LEARN THE FAMILY OF CHILDREN LIVING OUT THEIR UPDATED LIVES IN MY MIND ARE BEGINNING TO GET RIDES TO THE WALMART SUPER CENTER PARKING LOT, AND TO THE FIRST BAPTIST CHURCH, AND GOD NOSE (OR DOG KNOWS) WHERE ELSE? THEY ARE BEGINNING TO INTERACT WITH SOME OF THE "DOINS" TAKING PLACE IN THE OUTSIDE WORLD WHICH YOU MAY THINK IS THE REAL ONE. AND, IT JUST HAPPENS TO BE THE VIRGIN, STILL IN DISGUISE AS A REFRIGERATOR, WHO IS TRANSPORTING THEM TO THOSE PLACES...AND, TO BOOT, SMACK-DAB IN THE VERY BACK SEAT OF HER CADILLAC CONVERTIBLE---WITH THE TOP DOWN...TAKE A LOOK...SEE YA, ROLLER

PS, AS ONE OF MY FAYETTEVILLE, ARKANSAS GIRLFRIENDS HAS DECIDED; I "HAVE A PARTY GOING ON INSIDE MY HEAD"...
