At every occasion i’ll be ready for the funeral.
At every occasion, once more it’s called the funeral.
At every occasion, i’m ready for the funeral.
At every occasion, one brilliant day funeral.

i’m coming up only to show you down for…
i’m coming up only to show you wrong.
To the outside, the dead leaves, they are alone.
‘Fore they died, had trees to hang their hope.

Hey, there’s a horseshoe on my door — big deal.
And say, there’s a black cat on the floor — big deal.

Time.

Well do you know where you belong?
And is your star sign ever wrong?

The cards are speaking…

If these things change your day,
well if this song makes your day —

Seen it all before, seen it all before.
Given time these things will change…

This optical illusion relies on a principle of color vision
called chromatic adaptation.

Picture of the Day: from the Voyager Tarot – XXI Universe 21 December, 2006

XXI-Universe
(click on image to see full-size)

The Universe symbolizes the law of universality.
You are the universe.

Like the center stone, you possess within yourself
a universe of possibilities. What you can see in your
mind’s eye exists. Like Michelangelo, you can sculpt
anything out of yourself — a flower, a city, a god, a star.

Like the stone, you are whole and perfect; but as the
uncompleted sculpture, “The Awakening Giant,” your life
is an unfinished process. Always in a state of becoming,
you are simultaneously completing and beginning.

And when you dream, you dream of the day
when you find something you can love half as much
as you love all your little round mirrors…

there’s a hole in the middle you can’t seem to fill…

See yourself reflected in one —
there’s a hole in the middle you can’t seem to fill.

i hurt myself today to see if i still feel.
i focus on the pain —
the only thing that’s real.

What have i become?
My sweetest friend…
Everyone i know goes away in the end.

If i could start again a million miles away,
i would keep myself —
i would find a way.

All this lip distortion it brings me down.
So i’m not perfect — i still want you around.

I fight a peace that does not include you.  I fight an ending i didn’t choose.

so i go on and take these chances…

Picture of the Day: from Bret Hostetler 15 December, 2006

Squeezebox Opera by Bret Hostetler            36″ x 48″            Oil on canvas

Making art has always been a process of learning for me. Each of my artworks offers a new possibility. The process starts by describing an emotional space, and then the subject matter reveals itself, often times relating to my dreams.
I paint intuitively, correcting and giving order until the painting takes on its own original shape.

I believe great art observes the observer, it invites you in but you must reason with the ramifications of being there. I am inspired by graffiti artists as well as old masters.
When I work, I use music as a catalyst, and draw upon its ability to optimize the human spirit.
The outcome is the evidence of overcoming soulful obstacles on the path to knowing thyself.

My focus is on what binds us together as human beings. Water and earth are prominent in my paintings, as are they in our daily lives.
Ultimately, my artwork is my own modern psychology meant to reveal the magic and illusion in the world.

Bret Hostetler practices his psychology at his studio in the 1627 Studios
on Alberta Street in Portland, Oregon.

Walk-in appointments are available every last Thursday of the month.
