Digital Painting - Image 015 - Shirley Strachan
When I was youg there was this very cool Australian rock band – Skyhooks. The lead singer went by the name of Shirley Strachan. One song of theirs has had a signifigant imapct on my thinking – Ego is not a dirty word.
I truly believe that my latest digital abstract paintings are some of my best work. They are full of clues, references and visual excitement.
It’s unfortunate that these digital abstract paintings don’t get a wider audience. If people had the opportunity to view them I believe they would love them.
Dimensions: 8334px X 12500px.

The story behind this painting

If I did not have an ego I would not be here tonight
If I did not have an ego I might not think that I was right
If you did not have an ego you might not care the way you dressed
If you did not have an ego you’d just be like the rest
Ego is not a dirty word
Ego is not a dirty word
Ego is not a dirty word
Don’t you believe what you’ve seen or heard
If Jesus had an ego he’d still be alive today
And if Nixon had no ego he might not be in decay
If you did not have an ego you might not care too much who won
If I did not have an ego I might just use a gun
Ego is not a dirty word
Ego is not a dirty word
Ego is not a dirty word
Don’t you believe what you’ve seen or heard
Some people keep their egos in a bottom drawer
A fridge full of Leonard Cohen
Have to get drunk just to walk out the door
Stay drunk to keep on goin’
So if you got an ego
You better keep it in good shape
Exercise it daily
And get it down on tape
Ego is not a dirty word
Ego is not a dirty word
Ego is not a dirty word
Don’t you believe what you’ve seen or heard
Ego is not a dirty word
Ego is not a dirty word
Ego is not a dirty word
Don’t you believe what you’ve seen or heard
Ego is not a dirty word
Ego is not a dirty word
Ego is not a dirty word
Don’t you believe what you’ve seen or heard
Ego
