Composition 1a

©Copyright 2003 Jason J. Loya

Another example of my work when I slip into a random abstract expressionist frenzy.

Oil on canvas
20" x 30"

Oil and foil on canvas
30" x 40"

This painting is one of my abstract expressionist pieces that simply flowed out over the course of a few days. I was inspired by the nature of the universe and our place in it. The paint is so thick that although I painted it in 2003, it is still drying in places.

Self Portrait in Chair

Acrylic on paper
20" x 15"

This is a self portrait that I did in 2002. It only took a couple hours to finish but it is my favorite painting on this subject.

The Time Goes By

One a.m. and
Quiet sinking
Makes itself aware.
Old illusions
Prove to be
No more real than

Time has passed,
Skin is shed,
Bitter taste I knew is dead
So remains

Prime time
Bland reality
No more pipe dream
No more rope swing;

Had a dream that woke me,
Had a peace that wrote me,
Friend who had some pictures
In a puzzle --
Missing link.

Long ago the bonded

Thanks for coming
Thanks for nothing
Wish the best had never bothered

In the end or in the present,
All comes down to this:

Nevermind the madness,
Pick up all the pieces,
Clean and neat and all smoothed out,
Longing for some creases...

...the time goes by...
