I have put together a selection of Reynaldo’s beautiful paintings inspired or were inspired by my poetry. We have created over 168 works (paintings/drawings/poems) through our three collaborations the Passion Series, Tribute to Womanhood and Sensitivity & Sensuality Series so it was difficult selecting only 12. I have put a copy of the back of the Calendar here and am attaching my poem that were in collaboration with Reynaldo’s paintings.

Purple Passion by Reynaldo

Purple Passion

Her body tilts back into him
opening her breast to the universe
She reveals an open heart
in order to be close
She risks raw
to reveal what is true

If she falls will she be caught?
She leans back exposing her heart,
her breast to the world.
Vulnerable echoes across her …

My beautiful friends on RedBubble do yourself a big favour and visit my friend Brigitte Hintner’s Solo Exhibition showing now!

You won’t be disappointed. In a word it is: Magnificent.

To me Brigitte’s work with women together is filled with playfulness and sensuality that dances with joie de vivre. Her portaits are intensely emotional and expressive of character. Great sensitivity and emotion exudes from their eyes mesmerising the viewer. Love your work. Bravo dear friend. One of my comments made on Brigitte’s opening night of her Solo Exhibition.

Happy 40th Birthday to Dearest Brother Jeremy Slade (5 July 2010) and gratitude for being alive

I wanted to paint a portrait of my brother Jeremy for his 40th Birthday but on the 2 July after experiencing extreme stomach pains for a day and a half I was admitted to the Royal Melbourne Hospital and had emergency surgery 9.30 pm on Friday Night. I had an organ that was a time bomb ticking and I was just a few short hours from not being here. With deepest gratitude I want to thank the doctors, nurses, orderlies, surgeons, friends and angels that helped me recieve this surgery before it was too late.

Needless to say I did not get my brothers portrait painted as intended. But I rang him on the 5 July at 6.10 am in Knoxville, Tennessee and when I wished him happy birthday and relayed my story he said to me… ‘The Best Birthday Present is you being alive.’ He said to m…

Chase the emotion

until it crystallises
A butterfly landing
on an open flower
Beauty upon beauty
My eyes water
and flood my face.

Building a fascination
into an obsession
Feed each word until
it etches on my heart
a blood tattoo more
red then black
that cuts across my eye.

A hunger that
pervades my essence
A yearning that cannot be categorised
A passion that cannot be rationalised
A feeling from the core that only intensifies

Annihilate alienation
Celebrate fascination
Imbibe motivation
