I thought I could do justice to the photo I took the other day (Giant Clouds Dwarfing the Landscape) with a pencil sketch. The middle ground of the sketch came out the best. I captured the contrast between the white fluffy clouds in front of the gray face of the huge cloud. The gray clouds […]
As promised, today’s post features my grandson Will’s construction of the Hillsdale Clock Tower, whose clock was stopped by a bolt of lightning at 10:04 PM, that stormy night in 1955. Below is a photo that details the bell, spire and clock face. Will fashioned the brass bell from the mortar part of an old […]
At the bottom of the small orange fruit, where there is a slight dimple in the orb, I press it in until the skin ruptures. From there, I peel the skin away. One curious feature of the tangerine is just beneath the protrusion on the pole opposite the dimple. Once the peeling reaches that geometry, […]
I found another Mondrian in the wild, the other day. Another addition to my collection: Mondrian Composition 300 CRY, Mondrian 300, Found Art- Mondrian Rug, Mondrian 002 OXY, Found Art In Situ, More Found Art, Found Art.

Here is a photo from the early 1990s. I was just learning some of the fundamentals of design. I liked the striped sunlight on walls anyway. You might be able to tell it is East Coast light.

The oldest family vehicle I remember was our 1957 Chevy, but my friend’s parents had an older one, a 1954 Plymouth, I think. The year 1949 is significant to my past. That was the year […]
I just couldn’t wait until tomorrow to post this photo. In digitizing my film from the 80s and 90s, I came across this photo I took when I went to London in 1988. It speaks for itself. My thoughts exactly.
Today’s watercolor experiment: Today I began by abstracting another painting of mine. This painting (Abstract 072415) was an abstract of one of my photos. This time I used colors that were complementary to the blocks of color in the original. I wanted clean boundaries, straight lines between different colors. I used masking tape to cover one […]
