"Odysseus and the Sirens of Halliburton Island"
by Burton Charles Smith


The three sirens seek to lure Odysseus and his companions to their death with their melodious voices. However Odysseus has had himself securely bound to the mast of his ship while his companions row on with headphones on their ears, listening to "War Pigs" by Black Sabbath, thus unable to hear the sirens' song.


This is my latest collage/painting, done on a 22 x 28 inch gallery wrapped stretched canvas.

Pierre always loved balloons. He loves balloons so much that he makes his own and sells them in the park. His balloons are like no others! When people buy his strange balloons, it makes Pierre happy.

A trip to McDonalds!

It's 7:00pm, and the wife bellows, "I'm hungry!". I was too lazy to load the dishwasher earlier in the day. It's so hard! Early pioneers had it easy. They never knew the agony of loading the dishwasher. SO... it's off to McDonalds to pick up a sack of slop. I had to test my new 2gig memory card and batteries that I got on the cheap on ebay, so I decided to document my trip with the camera.

Here for all to see are the results. There are MANY photos, so dialup users beware. Also, It's quite boring.

To McDonalds we go!Collapse )

The Singer


Poor Harry, he wanted so much to be an artist. He wanted his songs to have meaning and substance. He wanted his music to be vibrant, and rich with the influences of jazz, blues and soul. But Harry's early albums didn't sell. His record company wasn't happy. The pressure to succeed and the lure of gold finally took it's toll, and the singer changed his tune.

TODAY Harry is a star. Love song after monotonous love song churn out from the factory floor, and are projected through his wiggling body as the masses cheer. The money is phenomenal, but Harry's time is not his own. He dreams of the day when his contracts are up and he can retire and maybe write a book or garden.
Is it fer sale?

Growing spanish moss

One of the plants I love here in the southern U.S. is spanish moss. It's not really a moss, it just looks like one. It's actually an air plant related to the pineapple. I was sitting by my tiny pond one day last year when it occurred to me that I've never actually tried growing spanish moss, and I thought it would be fun to try. There was not a speck of it in my yard, but it can be easily found all over the place. I went to a public park and gathered some that had fallen out of trees, and I hung little bits of it on the limbs of a dogwood tree that is growing just behind my tiny pond. It was sort of like hanging tinsel on a Christmas tree. Now that the leaves have fallen from the tree, I can see that the spanish moss is doing quite well, and has at least tripled in size since I hung it about a year ago. I took some pictures. It's the grey stuff hanging from the tree limbs (duh!).






I WOULD apologize for posting three pics without an lj cut, but I'm really not sorry. You should get broadband. :-)
