In A Fight That Never Ends Spray. Paint. Mix. Ship. Being an artist is more difficult Than most jobs. I know right?! Turns out it’s the truth. It was meant to be wild nights of folly Where we measured our abandon with What we can’t control And as it turned out We couldn’t control anything. Especially ourselves. Being an artist was meant to be like Becoming the paint at the end of Jackson pollack’s brush Where you simply got flicked into the oblivion of a masterpiece To meet the canvas of immortality It was meant to be Having a skull Like the one on Keith’s finger Banging strings Like a drunk bangs the wall of cell he’s been put in to sleep it off. We were meant to be made of steel Until finally we met our maker, Or stuffed our mattress full of bills, Like Rimbaud at the end of his short life refusing to write another word, Because humanity doesn’t deserve it, And regretting the words that he did. Or was that just an excuse? It was meant to be easy But I practically worship every failure Cause Every hardship is a measure of Gods faith in you to overcome, to transcend To be more than you once were and lift yourself off the canvas again. Being an artist was meant to be easy (after a limited period of struggle) But as it turns out It’s a lot like being a boxer In a ring with no bell Against more than one fighter In a fight that never ends. And Thank God. ‘In A Fight That Never Ends’ mixed media on paper 22x30” #art #painting #poem ps. Today’s a celebration, mastering my first solo record in too many years. Coming out in October!!

Joan Osborne episode live now! on the ‘Come To Where I’m From’ podcast.

We were blessed to have Craig Wedren as our guest for Episode three of the ‘Come To Where I’m From’ podcast A total original Daring and brave. And painted with an unusual brush as all the best artists are in my opinion. He’s kissed death and lived to tell about it. And predicted Instagram with his newly released book of excellent polaroids called ‘My 90’s’ highlighting his time with Shudder To Think. We talk about it all here with a good dose of laughter.

Yesterday Peter and I visited the Palapa Society and played for the kids there and got to answer some questions about music and life in pursuing your dreams. We also were treated with an excellent musical performance from some of the students. It was extremely gratifying and lead into an evening of music making that excelled expectations. So grateful to be here and to be given the chance to share and exchange on this level. Feeling blessed.
New song. Come see me and Peter Buck tonight at the Todos Santos Inn starting at 8 for a show benefiting The Palapa Society which is providing an education for the local children here in Todos! I will be painting live and auctioning the results for that same charity. And beyond all that it’s gonna be a blast!!
https://youtu.be/nr_DM68UVuM Two years ago I was asked to record a version of this song for Michelle Obama’s food is fuel campaign to help Americans struggling with hunger. It was very much an honor. Here’s a link to the PSA which featured that version. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZYHChE2kweg I was thinking of what my favorite holiday song is and usually I pick ‘Little Drummer Boy’ but I also hear this song around the holidays a ton and so I think it’s becoming a holiday favorite. Here’s a video of me reminding myself how it goes. Hope you enjoy it and I hope the holidays are wonderful for you. Upcoming dates: Dec 29th.
