Oops! Technical Difficulties!

Sadly, as sometimes happens with media, the internet ate my blog. I’ve restored most of the posts but I think I will be turning some of the older posts off. It will take a little time to restore the images as well. The blog is not dead, just undergoing a little rehablilation.

Owls and Birds

Birds and Owls

When I paint birds and owls, I look at how they interact with other animals and other birds. And then I think of how humans interact. Often we have modified our means of communication and travel so we communicate far beyond the local territory that constrains a bird.

Some of my paintings are meant to open the door to discussion, such as Hash-tag Hoot where the father owl is tweeting #Hoot on his cell phone. Or Odd Birds in the Family Tree, where in the same painting are found American Owls and owls found on far flung continents.

Here I have collected a few of them. Enjoy!

I admit, a few bears, and foxes and other critters snuck into the gallery as well.

Musing about the Ocean

Rather than a snowy winter we have had a wet one.  I think all that water inspired my muse to think about the ocean.  Here are some watery thoughts for you!

As I painted this theme it became more and more abstract

Sometimes you meet a tree and it speaks to you.

My original encounter with the tree was when I took this photo:

Brewster, NY- A History of Now

The first painting completed in 2018. This is oil on canvas and the title is “The Last Customer” It is of Bob’s Diner in #Brewster, NY. I’m painting some of the buildings that will be demolished when they build our new town center in a couple of years, as we will not see their like again. Small theaters, 50’s diners, and Pool Halls.

 

 

Brewster, New York is a village within the Town of Southeast.  They are going to renovate the village in late 2018-19.   They will knock down several historic buildings, including a 50’s Diner (Bob’s Diner) a Pool Hall and the old Cameo Theater.  I plan to paint them each before they are gone.

Here is an in-progress sketch of Bob’s Diner interior.  I will add more works as I go along

My New Creative Venture for Geeks and the Science Minded.

I was a a dinner party the other day. I wanted to tell them all of some cutting edge research I had read about anti-aging. I started and they rolled their eyes and changed the subject. I was also reading about variable resistance and fitness and wanted to talk about muscle activation, and they poured me some wine and said, “Are you going on any trips this year?” So I want to express my geeky sciencey side. To do so I started a You Tube Channel called Lifespan and Longevity. My video skills and video editing skills are slowly improving. I now have immense respect for those delivering snappy perfectly edited videos. But I am getting there. So if you want to follow along here are a few of my posts. Subscribe to my YouTube page and follow along. Fellow geeks…join me…I know you are out there!
