"Dusty Springfield: In the Land of Make-Believe" by Paul Ybarra, 2014
There’s not much I can add to the greatness, the beauty vocally, soulfully and personally of the Lady known as Dusty Springfield. Dusty Springfield was a woman you wanted the best for, you wanted to protect, because how she sang was a direct connection to our hearts. Our hopes, fears, and dreams of acceptance to unrequited loves, favorite memories and secret wishes. One of my favorite songs she recorded was from the Dusty In Memphis album, the incredibly haunting and beautiful “In The Land of Make-Believe.” I painted with my heart what I thought Dusty looked like when she sang this song…I wanted to convey the feeling that weighed heavy in her mind and I thought to write the lyrics (by Burt Bacharach and Hal David, respectively) around her…I wanted to show the duality of Dusty in this series, her complexity..I love you Dusty Springfield. You felt the pains, the passions, the hurt and the ecstasy of the world..You are always in our hearts, now and always in the Land of Make-Believe…

Wooster the Cat, August 2014. This is our 12 years old, 18 pound Domestic Long Hair Swooner, who has commandeered our lives and our hearts. The best kept secret in pet adoptions/rescues are in fact, they rescue us. That, and senior cats are THE BEST! True characters, cuddlers, and mischief makers….Do yourself or a lonely loved one (or not-so-loved lonely someone!) a favor and get them a senior cat. The BEST companions, healers, and lovers you’ll ever meet.

I took this February of 2013, while visiting Fort Lauderdale, Florida for three weeks. There’s something special and mysterious about the skies in the South. Coming from Southern California and raised with the spoilage of mountains, desert and ocean just minutes apart, no place captures the ghostly magic of nature at the height of the sun or the glow of the moon, quite like a Southern Sky.
The weather was turning at the time this photo was taken in late afternoon, making way for a beautiful thunderstorm that brought with it warm rain and humid gloominess that slunk around the pool for the rest of evening. It was magic. It’s probably the thing I miss most about living in the South; those glorious times when there was thunder in the afternoon…

"Green Man", by Paul Ybarra, 2014
Size: 20 x 30
Medium: Digital & Make-Up
This was originally a tribute to the late great gay Porn Icon Al Parker, but as I worked on it, and spent the last three days getting to know him on the canvas, he became a mythic incarnate of Al Parker, and thus, a more forest dwelling, magical and satyr-istic version..I think this is part of who Al Parker truly was..a spiritual, original hippie who inspired and intoxicated his audience with lust, sexual desire and joy..Al Parker, you are mythic, beautiful and always in our thoughts and dreams..

"Rooms on Fire: Stevie NIcks" by Paul Ybarra, 2014
Size: 20 x 30 medium: Digital & Cosmetics

Using lyrics from Stevie Nicks “Rooms on Fire”..no one builds the fire of longing stronger, brighter, and beautiful than Stevie Nicks…I love this song..I remember when it came out in 1989 and playing my cassette single over and over again..practicing twirling, running through the park and pretending I too was like Stevie Nicks…
