FEAST of the HAVENOTS by RSConnett FEAST of the HAVENOTS by RSConnett
Acrylic on stretched canvas. 20" x 24"

A loose depiction representing the dilemma humans face. The denizens of an overpopulated earth eat all that is worthy for the sake of survival of one dominant species.

We must show constraint, or we will perish ... Or we must evolve. I suspect our only hope is to evolve because we will not show constraint. Thus, humanity, as we know it, will perish. However, from that death will rise a new creature. Something more godlike, something better than what we are currently.

The overall theme of this piece makes me curious about your political views and how you feel about communism, socialism, etc. but I both love/loathe politics. Perhaps it's better not to ask. Great work. :)

How does he do it? How do they do it? Uncanny and immutable.
This is such a happening tailpipe of a party.
Like sugar, the guests are so refined, (look like melting m and ms)

A confidence man, but why so beleaguered?
He's not a leader, he's a Texas leaguer
Swinging for the fence, got lucky with a strike
Drilling for fear, makes the job simple
Born on third, thinks he got a triple

Blackout weaves its way through the cities
Blackout weaves its way through the cities
Blackout weaves its way,...

I remember when you sang
That song about today
Now it's tomorrow and
Everything has changed

A think tank of aloof multiplication
A nicotine wish and a Columbus decanter
Retrenchment and hoggishness
The aristocrat choir sings
'What's the ruckus?'
The haves have not a clue
The immenseness of suffering
And the odd negotiation, a rarity
With onionskin plausibility of life,...
And a keyboard reaffirmation

Blackout weaves its way through the cities
Blackout weaves its way through the cities
Blackout weaves its way,...

I remember when you sang
That song about today
Now it's tomorrow and
Everything has changed



Your painting reminded me of this song, Pearl Jam's Bu$hleaguer . I think mostly because of the title but also due to the maggot like creates weaving their way too and eventually through the remnants of the corpse.

Fascinating painting as always!

Beautiful, as always. I was wondering, in quite vivid paintings such as this one, is the palette choice thought out from the beginning, or does it come naturally as you paint?
