Barbara Greene Mann: Original New Art

Sultry and Hot

Hi,  Somehow I thought, I think I could do this, give a lecture and show my artwork which shows the local musicians I have seen in Toronto. I sit and sketch the band, the vocalist, and then go home and paint them with watercolor. Afterwards,

The Queen of Jazz and The King of Flutes. for sale original watercolor,100$

I show the musicians and they autograph the picture, authenticity. so I could display 15 pictures and give a talk. I feel this is my way of honoring the musicians and giving them some thanks for their years of practice and working at their craft.

After my second lung cancer operation, I  was left with only 30% of my lungs and I decided if I was to be a singer I’d better do it fast.

 Who’s’ Talking?

I read a few pages and understood something better than I had. I made something to eat and I went mmmm, this is good.

I saw on National expeditions page a giant faceless whale, caught majestically, leaping into the air.  Then navigating to trip choices a monkey-like creature’s face emerged from a ring of fur. Oddly enough it looked like it should have or could have been the whale’s head.  It was so odd I had to tell you.

Now, this poses the real question, why? Another one of those blogger’s duties? My “who am I questions?” I must say exploring one’s mind, the universe, consciousness is not an easy matter, but so amusing.

By the way, has anyone considered looking this up? I didn’t think so.


Utopia and the Pink Shoes

I am so sorry as the painting posted had the wrong title.

a Utopia

You never had a worry in Utopia because the Lady did all the worrying for ya’. And your pink shoes …

…One shoe became a getaway car, always handy and the other shoe became a boat for the refugees.

In Utopia there were a lot of animals, I like elephants and dogs, and fish and good things to eat. And you could lay in bed and eat pizza with your Mom.

There’s a jungle with a totem pole and a giant rabbit and more clear water to swim in and play with the dog. That’s Utopia.

The original watercolor and collage is available, 18 x 24″. 800$

Avoidable Death vs. Calculated Death and my first book goes to Press.

Can It go to Press without a picture of Samantha?  I fear it might.  It did.

Cindy sent Sam to heaven, my 12-year-old Springer. Sam became her dog when I asked her to care for Sam following my second lung cancer surgery and she was tired of her newly acquired mothership role and deferred freedom.

And vice versa I thought, as a non-preferred bereavement role hit me.  Not even a farewell kiss or a party. 

What a minute. She’s happy, you’re sad, too bad.

So no one said, Welcome, Home Babs or So Long Sammy, I Love You!

I’ll get over It. But when?

Hostile Security GuarHospital Sunday, Scary

Art for sale, new works, Art Raises your Vibrations, the bad

Jeanie a friend from Gilda’s Club called and said to visit because her cancer had gone to her brain and she had 3 months to live. After falling asleep time after time I finally left and it was far, very far away. After I  arrived she took her pill and fell asleep but she asked me to stay and sleep on THE CHAIR. IT HURT MY BACK SO I TURNED IT UPSIDE DOWN AND THE NURSE, saw and screamed.NO,No.

So I went to this room with a couch, A nurse gave me a  pillow and sheet.

When I entered there was one white skinhead and a timid black man.They walked aggressively towards me, stood too close for comfort and accused me of theft, and trespassing. Ordering me out, they were right on my heels. I had a hard time keeping up, very winded, and then chest pains. No harm to them I was the trespasser, the invader. They didn’t   stop until I was off the property. Of course, it was a large parking lot.

In the morning I called the patient advocate. I think I’ll call her back.  It must be all the poisons in the BMO food, turns men into killer dogs, No treats for this boy.
