"Earth’s distant orb appeared the smallest light that twinkles in the heaven; whilst round the chariot’s way innumerable systems rolled and countless spheres diffused an ever-varying glory. It was a sight of wonder: some were hornèd like the crescent moon; some shed a mild and silver beam like Hesperus o'er the western sea; some dashed athwart with trains of flame, like worlds to death and ruin driven; some shone like suns, and as the chariot passed, eclipsed all other light." From "Queen Mab" by Percy Bysshe Shelley (1813)

The Folk Art Of Cactus County #11
This one (below) is called “Calavera With 5 Chillis”. Calavera means skull but also refers to other Day of the Dead stuff too. It appears on a number of the pictures I do.
This next one is “All Things Must Pass”. I’ve translated this phrase into Spanish (correctly I hope) and used it in the picture. I’ll use this phrase on more paintings. I’m quite keen on the yellow background and have used it on a few pictures but only this one and the one above are finished.
