South African Artist SAREJESS and The Ship From Hades

The great South African Artist SAREJESS was having another strange dream.

But this wasn’t like the others he had been having recently.

The other dreams he had were somehow related to time- a dream about an hourglass being overturned by mermaids, a dream about a sundial that was able to operate at night during the moonlight, a dream about a railway watch that hung between the lovely breasts of a beautiful blonde brothel girl who worked in a Wild West saloon during the days of America’s Old West, a dream about a cuckoo clock where the cuckoo bird that came out of it alternated between the faces of Orson Welles and the faces of an Egyptian Pharaoh, a dream about a giant hamster standing atop the clock tower of Big Ben at Westminster where a cloud in the shape of Vincent Price’s face in the moonlight appeared above.

And those other dreams (about things relating to time) had compelled him to paint pictures.

This particular dream was about a picture that he had already painted.

The Ship From Hades

In this painting, he had been assisted by his two young apprentices Jody and Joshua.

A friend of his from Canada had said the ship in the painting reminded him of the sort of ship that Hades the Greek god of the Underworld would sail should he choose to sail in the 7 Seas above his netherworld realm.

In this dream, SAREJESS was aboard a modern ship.

There was a heavy strange misty fog at sea and this ship from Hades was sailing towards the modern ship in whose bridge room he was standing.

He heard a bunch of people speaking excitedly in a language that sounded to him like Russian.

Meanwhile aboard the Russian Navy ship The Saint Vladimir that was currently in the Mediterranean Sea not far from Tel Aviv on Israel’s coastline:

“Do you see it, Captain?” The ship’s navigator asked the captain of the Saint Vladimir.

“I do,” the Captain of the Saint Vladimir replied as he looked through his binoculars and saw the Ship From Hades from SAREJESS’ painting approach.

Meanwhile in his office in Jerusalem, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu read an email and then said to one of his aides, “Israel may be in a state of total war later this month.”

    • Dracul Van Helsing said,

      Thanks very much. 🙂 🙂

      Yes, I’ve always found it interesting how a painting can mean different things to different people.

      And yes my friend Tim (aka SAREJESS) does have very beautiful texture in his painting. 🙂

      • artistbybeauty said,

        Your welcome 🙂 🙂 Yes, its very interesting. It is such a beautiful texture, Tim has a wonderful painting talent x x

      • Dracul Van Helsing said,

        He does indeed. 🙂

        And he’s now finally starting to get the recognition in his native South Africa that he deserves. 🙂

      • artistbybeauty said,

        Aww thats so good 😊😊 I’m happy for him. That’s really nice x x

      • Dracul Van Helsing said,

        It is. 🙂 🙂

        I should mention to you as a recent commenter on my blog (as I do to all my friends who start commenting on my blog) that for some reason my own blog doesn’t let me like comments on my own blog.

        There’s nothing that says Like that appears to me on my own blog.

        I remember the first time years ago when I got an email notification that someone liked one of my comments on my blog, I said, where are they able to do that?

        Because Like after every comment doesn’t appear to me on my own blog.

        But I just thought I’d let you know that I like all your comments. 😊

        I’m just unable to click Like on comments on my own blog for some reason.

      • artistbybeauty said,

        Haha that’s ok 😊😊 It must have something to do with the template of your blog maybe? But then again I’m not too sure either why it doesn’t show the like option on comments x x

      • Dracul Van Helsing said,

        Yes, I think it probably has to do with the template of my blog. 😊😊

        I still use the same old template I chose when I first joined WordPress back in 2007- the reason being it looks like a gothic style gravestone in a Victorian English graveyard which is quite appropriate for a vampire novel.

        At least that’s how the template appears on desktop PCs and laptops.

        I notice it doesn’t show up on smart phones at all.

        But at least it appears on desktops and laptops 💻 for all those vampire fans that own desktops and laptops. 😃

      • artistbybeauty said,

        That’s true 😊😊 it does look gothic style. I really love Victorian style.

        It can be a hassle changing the blog template. I was going to change mine but it mixed everything around and some things were missing in the preview, so I just kept it the same.

        I’m sure most people read on their laptops. I prefer my laptop to my phone x x

      • Dracul Van Helsing said,

        Yes, that’s another reason I never changed my template. 😊😊

        I know where everything is on my page in my current template and I’ve always been afraid that if I change it, then I won’t be able to find it when I want it.

        Hmmm… where did that go? 🤔

        But you’re right.

        I think most people like to surf the Net on their laptops 💻. 🙂

      • artistbybeauty said,

        Yes that’s so true 😊😊 It is too much of a hassle haha. I would really not want to lose any of my posts. Yes people really do prefer laptops x x

      • Dracul Van Helsing said,

        Yes, to lose one’s posts is an awful thing.

        That happened to me at the first blogging site I ever belonged to- a site called Journalspace.

        Back in December 2008, the computer system for the site crashed and lost most of the blogs including mine.

      • artistbybeauty said,

        Aww really that would have been frustrating 😊😊 Good thing it hasn’t happened again. I am lucky to have not lost a post and hopefully never do haha x x

      • Dracul Van Helsing said,

        Yes, hopefully it won’t happen to you. 🙂🙂
