Has your mow-bot gone bezerk? Trimmed your bush bare? Wanna put a little magic back into your secret garden? If so, this desert oasis ought to spark it right up!

Forty blistering miles out, in the hide-roasting hardscrabble Mojave, under by blazing red-hot sun, Hungry Ghost, in scarlet fez, jacket, matching polka-dot knickers and blue bow tie, uses mudras (mystical hand gestures) and magic to remote mow his shimmering desert oasis.

I was there. I saw him. I saw this surreal vision. And it was bizarre! Now, you can go out there if you want. If you can stand the heat! Or, you can save yourself the trouble. Purchase my giclee print! Hang it on the wall!

As Saturn, digital painting by Troy Eittreim

Surreal digital painting of Old Saturn flowers in beard in Hell pointing, by troy Eittreim Wacky funky folky fine art cartoon

Saturn, the son of Coelus and Titaea or Terra, married his sister Vesta. She, with her other sisters, persuaded their mother to join them in a plot, to exclude Titan, their elder brother, from his birthright, and raise Saturn to his father’s throne. Their design so far succeeded, that Titan was obliged to resign his claim, though on condition, that Saturn brought up no male children, and thus the succession might revert to the Titans again. Saturn, it is said, observed this covenant so faithfully, that he devoured, as soon as they were born, his legitimate sons. His punctuality, however, in this respect, was at last frustrated by the artifice of Vesta, who, being delivered of twins, Jupiter and Juno, presented the latter to her husband, and concealing the former, sent him to be nursed on Mount Ida in Crete, committing the care of him to the Curetes and Corybantes.

I have always found a connection between this myth and mental processes during creative endeavor. So he may stay fresh, and relevant,  the artist must constantly challenge and tear down his own ideas. He must devour them. Annihilate them. And build upon the remains.

Mushrooms symbolize mental leap the creative must make. Birthday cake represents the mental growth through experience.

With four arms and four legs, Saturn is a monster. Hands, behind his own back, tickle one another and form a union. A third hand bridges the gap between mushroom and heart emanations. The fourth, forces in a nod to the ancient Egyptian sculptural dictum of “Left foot forward” – a symbol of power and strength) pushes himself into the psychotic void.
