Brings me to this

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 actual had been.

Like bursting at the seams with ignorance, attitude, sexuality and a giant “Fuck You” to the world.

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

One of these left a life time of “lust” in my heart and need for a good pair of speakers.

Looking up and 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 night I could, I’d be at the local arcade in our shit little town.

I was there. Hanging out, getting high, like a groupie to the screen. Lean against the wall with a view of the TV, your hair is big and the jeans are tight…looking good.

Van Halen, Priest, AC/DC and most of all Sabbath…and to this day, noone’s ever seen my cry to Journey.
