**Please Send Positive Energy…

Please send good thoughts to Ray and his family.

Ray Ferrer - Emotion on Canvas

Hi Friends and Fans of Ray! This is his wife, Rhian Ferrer….
Tuesday morning I found Ray in bed having a seizure (he has never had one before) I brought him to the hospital and he is stable but has a massive tumor in/on his brain. He has been in ICU since Tuesday evening. I am hoping to bring him home soon.

For those of you that are awaiting paintings, they will get out. Ray will make sure everything is taken care of once he is back on his feet and home. Let’s hope that is soon.

If you would like to order anything from his Etsy shop that would be a huge help to us right now to offset some expenses. You can use Coupon Code ART50 during check out to save 50%.

I can handle all of those orders. We appreciate your patience while Ray and…

AC/DC-It’s A Long Way To The Top (If You Wanna Rock ‘N’ Roll)

Vintage AC/DC! The way it should be with Bon Scott. Brian Johnson has nothing on him. Many good memories listening to these blokes back in the early 80’s. I saw them in concert once and my ears rang for a week!


Nothing beats classic Oz rock and it doesn’t get any better than AC/DC.  This was filmed by the Countdown crew in the middle of Melbourne in the 70’s on the back of a truck.  It’s a far cry from the stadiums that AC/DC has filled for decades.  “It’s a long way to the top if you wanna rock and roll” was parodied by kids as “It’s the long way to the shop for a chiko roll.”   Very old school.

“It’s A Long Way To The Top (If You Wanna Rock ‘N’ Roll)”

Ridin’ down the highway
Goin’ to a show
Stop in all the byways
Playin’ rock ‘n’ roll
Gettin’ robbed
Gettin’ stoned
Gettin’ beat up
Broken boned
Gettin’ had
Gettin’ took
I tell you folks
It’s harder than it looks

It’s a long way to the top if you wanna rock ‘n’ roll
It’s a long way to…

My Six Favourite Literary Insults

Interesting read.


Literary insultsIt’s not all elegant sentences and good taste in the literary world…sometimes words can wound and sometimes they can bite back…

Mark Twain on Jane Austen

I haven’t any right to criticize books, and I don’t do it except when I hate them. I often want to criticize Jane Austen, but her books madden me so that I can’t conceal my frenzy from the reader; and therefore I have to stop every time I begin. Every time I read ‘Pride and Prejudice,’ I want to dig her up and hit her over the skull with her own shin-bone.

William Faulkner on Mark Twain
A hack writer who would not have been considered fourth rate in Europe, who tricked out a few of the old proven sure fire literary skeletons with sufficient local color to intrigue the superficial and the lazy.

William Faulkner on Ernest Hemingway
He has never been known to use…
