Preparing another canvas for painting

I’m preparing another canvas for painting. This time trying out some cooler colours. White and Blue Gesso blended with large hogshair brush.

My Fed 5V camera loaded and ready to go! I made a photo with my Nokia Lumia 1020 phone. One moment later it fell over and the film roll fell out. My advice: don’t show your precious Russian film camera your digital smartphone camera!

Interesting read... nothing new just the reality spoken out loud... I believe in gun owership for protection but not murder or the massive under taken gun lobbies manage to influence and even write laws that have latitude and or fexibilty in this murder market.... I am not sure where the answer lies... here in America it is more important to own a gun than to ensure that guns do not get in the hand of people who use them for I'll gotten gains

I had some free time today, so I decided to break out a nice thick canvas and pop the lid of black Gesso. I’d used a background of white in my previous piece, so I thought it might be interesting to go with a darker base. You can see the prepared surface…

+Steven James I like it! :) Today I took my camera and shot a frigate on the bay. Still have to see how it came out. :) It was quite far out so I had to use a telephoto lens.

I'm thinking that I appreciate your thoughts :) The rendering this aspect, however small, is the journey. KNowing how and when to let go is the challenge.

Emily has a few weeks or months to live. It would be nice if she had a comfortable place to stay in San Diego. She is currently at UCSD hospital being treated for terminal cancer. She is fighting to stay alive, of course, so I'm probably being negative. I hope she wins her battle to live, but if she doesn't, just a few pence from you combined with the money others give can make her time less stressful. ;)
Emily is in dear need of help at this point the doctors are giving her only weeks if she does not get help in form of housing, food, transportation to the doctor. Please read the story of Emily thank you. Emily’s story We are Emily’s friends and we’re telling Emily’s story. We hope that when you...

Discovering the Quietsome Quiddity. Exploring the Vivid Expanse.
Introduction

Briefly...

Sometimes I write. Sometimes I make photographs and music. Creativity is strange and evasive. It's easily confounded by personal demons and self-sabotage. Grasping it, even for a moment, is challenging.

So much of our online interaction seems based on some degree of self marketing, and I really struggle talking about myself. When I do, I often find the systems of categorisation used to define people very limiting. I can easily maintain a list of my most common dabblings, and I have done so below, but I cultivate a wide range of interests, including but not limited to: boardgames, pen and paper role playing games, ancient history, philosophy and philosophy of mind, astronomy, technology, futurism, sociology, politics...and on and on...

I’m an introspective person, but not always quiet. I favour genuine people and few friends. I enjoy open spaces and suffer crowds and cities grimly. There are times when I’d be happy to live on a secluded hill with my family and other times when I’m inspired to use my camera in crowded concrete jungles.

I post all sorts of stuff on G+, from science and philosophy to my own photos and music playlists.
