Blame Your Green Eyes; For What They Have Seen. (watercolors) by 

Watercolour on Paper

100cms x 70 or something x 2 as there are two of them hence the x 2 part.

Am adding the song that I wrote from whence I took the titles to the two works… and to the diptych that contains them both.

The individual works are here, with a fair bit more text (finally figured out I was leaving out the colon on the linking process. Yay! Go go power Paul!)…

The first piece is Blame Your Green Eyes

The second…

For What They Have Seen

and the uncropped version Blame Your Green Eyes For What They Have Seen Uncropped

You nail my guitar to the bedroom wall
You lick your lips promise me more
Take my nail polish, go out to score
But I can’t, I won’t help anymore.

That final appointment waiting in line
A scar on the flesh of your inner thigh,
A casual promise and a white lie
Where the old bridge splits the hot night sky

Our little deaths
Holding your breath
I’ll always be less
Always a mess
Ill never confess
To the cuts on my flesh
Or the tears on your dress
Are all we have left

You carry the heat all bloody and keen
Hot with this fever since you were 15
Stones you’ve kept for each lie you have been
Blame your green eyes, for what they have seen

We kissed on the beach last Halloween.
And now we’ll never forget the shit we have seen
The hell in the wall the gorgeous machine
The tiny mad children that we have both been

- Paul Robertson, sometimes afraid of trees.

I have been writing my novel, which is so exciting i made my cat throw up last chapter I finished. Um… I spun her around saying “YAY!” too much. so i haven’t been painting anywhere near as much as i like to. (I’ve also been realllllllly sick. oh well.) Apart from painting I have a side-line in cat straightening – an uncommon skill that i learned in a dzong in Bhutan.

    You have certainly improved in style and content with these and the other pictures than the self portraits as I state this as only my opinion that the earlier works where more indulgent in tone this I find more universally appealing and says alot without over doing it, it is not trying to hard to convince the viewer of an opinion.
    Them the viewers can create a storys from the paintings of the subjects, oh and the two should be shown together they work as part of couple than individually.
    Hope you don’t mind me saying so and I really do like this work, bye dude!
