Double Cherry Pie

Double Cherry Pie, July 2020. Acrylic and Water Color Pencil

Double Cherry Pie is a combination of many things of my younger self back in the 80’s.

Some of what I wanted to be, tried to be and some of what I actually was.

Bursting at the seams with ignorance, attitude, sex and a giant “Fuck You” to the world.

1983 I was 14… I lost my virginity and discovered MTV.

Leaving me with a life time of “lust” in my heart and need for a good pair of headphones.

Seeing my favorite bands on the screen blew my mind.

These guys wailing on their guitars, tits and ass all over the place.

It was pure, simple in your fucking face WE ARE ROCK n ROLL !

I couldn’t get enough.

Video did not kill the radio star…..

I was hooked. And I never wanted to come down.

Every weekend I’d be at the local arcade in our shit little town.

Hanging out, getting high, like a groupie to the band.

Get my jean’s zipper up with a coat hanger…back comb, back comb……looking good.

To this day, no one’s ever seen my cry to Journey.
