Broken, Singleton 2007, Outsider Art

Broken,
Outsider Woman Hippie Artwork
(c) Singleton 2007



Silly man,
I twined my life together
with old leather.

Ask any biker,
it only gets stronger...
Aged, it's silky patina
glides, slides, rides....

You think you broke the chain
with your charm,
but I'm floating,
Simply resting at the Seawall...
Treasure hunting
with my toes....

Perusing through ALL of THESE pieces in the past two days has kept me busy & entertained. So many of these pieces I wish I had ... just so I could look at them again & again, whenever I wanted! But I guess that is what this blog is for.
Prints One Day Baby!

LOL, Lotus I have copies of them all...I just can't put my hands on them, in the physical sense. Some of them just look so much better in person...LOL, like this little lady. (I can tell Singleton's scanner has seen better days) LoL, Lotus...you have some of my most very favorite ones.

I'm sensing a theme of topless women. By no means am I complaining. The femaile body is beautiful. I prefer this over a portrait of a pantsless man anyday. Actually I think the paintings are very nice. Keep up the good work

Doug...portraits of pantsless men....I am so LOL! I love it! As for a theme, well that's not exactly it, but maybe, the naked truth be known, you're onto something!

It's the toes again, sensing in the sand, searching under the water, resting, and keeping life from becoming untwined.

I love your work, but yet again it is late, well after last call, and I have class at Wayne State University in downtown Detroit tomorrow.
Thank you for all of your art. Talk to you soon, justgivemepeace and Singleton.

Eric.....
As Orhan would say, "stay in school,dude"....it's happenin'....
I took a "summer off" a lifetime ago.....

Yeah, the toes, sometimes we have to scrunch down, dig deeper into the dirt to stay grounded. Sometimes when we're blinded, or just blank....
we have to touch, to feel, to remember where we are...
where we're going....
peace,friend

how true...

and I will accept this peace along with the night, the moon and aquarius rising. I will breath it and know that no other way exists for life. I will walk on top of the water's kiss, my desire, to find a path to the morning,
to a new land,
a new friend--
peace

Thank you both, Justgivemepeace and Singleton. Thanks for the inspiration, as always.
