PYGOYA MUSEUM opens in Mt. View! (2006)

 

On the slopes of an active volcano,
At an elevation of 4 thousand feet!
The founder, artist "Pygoya"
is himself an active volcano!
A lifelong marathoner, devoted
father, and indefatigable disco-dancer,
How does he find time to paint???
and...................................................
appear at international art events,
and
write books, and articles, and create 3D ART
on high-end computers,
and
Maintain his own gigantic Web Museum?
No one knows...least of all me.
To investigate these and other
MYSTERIES....you had better
check out this site!
LASTPLACE.COM
I am
in there,
Somewhere.
Which leads me to ask...
"Why not you?"

 

 
 
"REAL PAINT" is the "REAL THING"! (2005)

 

 
Pygoya has fallen in love with paint again.
It reminds him of his youthful optimism as a
painter starting out on a life-long" Marathon of
Art!"  Who among us would be ready to say that
Oils and acrylics have had their day?
Not me, I was subverted by the smell
of oil paint a long time ago.
People get ready, the time has arrived when
we should take a second look at all of
those "traditional" media!  Heresy you say!
I wonder?
Was Rembrandt on to something?
with all of those Huge Gobs
of oil paint?
And then VanGogh!!
Not to be outdone...
(by a fellow Dutchman, no less)
painted with even more paint than
anyone ever thought possible.
Monet went all the way.
He used a trowel to ladle on the paint!
Thick paint.  Heavy paint.  Dripping on
everything,  the light switch, the mirror,
the sheets, the carpet your wife's undergarments!
And... OUCH!   Its on the COUCH!
Lest we loose our happy homes to chaos,
some moderation is in order!
Painting is fun,
However, this harmless pastime
can quickly become
a menace to household order
and domestic peace!
Oil paints, varnishes, solvents....
all very dangerous stuff. 
"This stuff could
Kill Ya, kid."
The devil can take
the hindquarters! 
Look out Cleveland!
Painting is making a comeback!
And our lives will never be the same!
Pygoya is just a bit ahead of his time,
like he always has been!
Only this time he is...
Leading the charge,
with his
PAINT BRUSH
IN HAND!!!
Cheers, Pygoya, onward and upward!
