Awakening by Alex Fishgoyt is a breathtaking and awe inspiring piece of artwork. Frankly, it’s much more than that. It is an experience that dramatically engages the viewer. Fishgoyt artfully invites you to enter his world and to believe in the dream. Once the viewer dares to enter and explore he challenges you to join him on the journey.
At first glance the journey seems inviting, exciting and as you move deeper into it you begin notice that it is unpredictable, scary and maybe even dangerous. Fishgoyt creatively illuminates your journey with hope as you cross a bridge over the vast and mysterious ocean to a brilliant white city. Or how about a long journey down a shadowy back alley where even a small faint light gives encouragement to the inquisitive traveler?
Awakening is filled with many possibilities. First, you must be willing to get on the ship where there is no turning back. This is a ship headed toward a gigantic wave. Will this vessel capsize or will it break on through to the other side and transport us to our Awakening?
The woman is the fulfillment of the journey: a journey that is rich, fertile, beautiful and fulfilling – all that the dreamer is. She completes the cycle of life. Welcome to the journey of Awakening – a pathway filled with many awakenings.
Awakening – I was so excited to receive this huge package from FedEx today. A big Thank You to Vladimir Kush and Karyn Anderson of the Kush Fine Art Gallery for turning me onto Fishgoyt’s amazing surrealism!

Pete Rose Swings Again! I was in Manhattan Beach, CA. last week for business. I was waiting in the city hall for a meeting. While waiting I browsed the events folders for up and coming Manhattan Beach activities. Suddenly, there it was: Pete Rose Baseball Camp – The Legendary “Hit King” – Manhattan Beach LL Aug 8-11, 2001 Ages 7-14.
Wow! I couldn’t believe my eyes. When I was 13 years old I would have given anything to participate in an event like this, especially, with the Legendary Charlie Hustle! How lucky kids are today! I don’t think some people realize the gravity of Pete’s contribution to baseball and the opportunity his Baseball Camps present. It’s incredible!
Pete Rose Swings Again! It’s all there: Coached in the skills of batting, pitching, defense and base running. Daily coaching by Pete Rose! I was so excited I was ready to sign up myself. I was so glad to see something by the man and the name.
I love working with young ball players, it gives me great joy and satisfaction. Come out to my baseball camp and have a great time and learn some new skills with me. Pete Rose
I had this funny vision of Pete’s camp being over run by a large group of 30 something Charlie Sheen or Matt Damon types still trying to live out their baseball dreams. What I am saying… I would be part of that group too! LOL
Pete Rose Swings Again! BTW, if you are a kid who is Age 7-14 get your Dad to sign you up ASAP. Or if you have a kid between those ages, it’s a great opportunity to live vicariously through them and meet Pete Rose at the same time! Either way it’s a Win-Win.

Sacred Gift – Last week my friend Skip and I were in Las Vegas. We had an incredibly relaxing week thanks to the Qua Spa at Caesars Palace. We were just getting ready to Leave Las Vegas, but, unlike Nicolas Cage in the film Leaving Las Vegas LOL, when Kush Fine Art Gallery consultant Karyn Anderson called. “Vladimir Kush is painting down at the Caesars Palace Kush Fine Art Gallery, come on down.”
Many of you have seen my blog Meet the new Salvador Dali and were touched by the incredibly luminous and inspirational art of Vladimir Kush. I figured I might not have another chance to meet this master fine artist. So, I twisted Skip’s arm a little and said, “Hey we gotta go see my favorite artist!” Talk about a golden opportunity! Actually to me it was more like a Sacred Gift.
Sacred Gift – Vladimir’s art has truly inspired me, so much so that I have become an avid patron of his work. I found him to be a delightful and playful person; just like his paintings. One of the things I love most about Vladimir’s work is that it is intuitive, expansive and touches on many subjects much like Luminous ROC. I love the fact that Vladimir likes to paint about anything, as I love to write about anything.
It’s funny one of Vladimir’s friends came up and mentioned that he thought Vladimir and I were brothers. We bonded and had a great time talking allegory, hidden signs and symbols, Polynesian mythology and the metaphorical journey of his work.
Vladimir and I are standing in front of his painting “City by the Sea.” He called it “The Squid” as he was embellishing one of the 88 numbered giclee prints. The inspiration for the painting came to him as he was flying into San Francisco. The painting reminds me of James Cameron’s “The Abyss.” It’s spectacular to me in every way.
I felt very fortunate for the opportunity to watch him paint the final details of his new huge panoramic painting “Awakenings.” To be able to spend some time with Vladimir Kush and talk with him, to me, that was a Sacred Gift.
If you are interested in finding out more about Vladimir’s art work you can contact Karyn Anderson at the Las Vegas Kush Fine Art Gallery: Karyn@vladimirkush.com or cell 775-997-8700 Mention Sebastian, she’ll take care of you. Karyn Rocks!
