Owl Power!

I have to admit, I like painting and drawing owls.  They will not be my finest artwork but they are the most fun!

Here is one I did while gallery sitting at Muscoot Farm, where some of my owls were in a show.  I used my Derwent Inktense Water color pencils, I used a brush with water to blend them and then later when I got home, outlined bits in black ink to make it pop. 

 

 

I have to admit I was a little miffed when Odd Birds in the Family Tree ended up in a dark hallway!  Here I am bringing a few canvases to the show:

And poor Odd birds ended up alone here:

But my Muse salved my miffedness when another art organization I belong to, asked for a donated canvas, they provided the canvas and then it was donated and sold to help support the organization.  And what was the theme?  BIRDS!   So here is Owl Power!

I did he background in acrylic and the owl in Oil paint.

And that is how art sometimes comes into being!

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!
