I don't always like to paint in a realist way...sometimes I like to make stuff up based on imagery I have seen and experienced...to have fun with paint...you get it or ya don't...this one may be sold already...waiting to find out...which would be goodish...

Hey Skip,

Love the totem.

Having spent time in the high arctic, I am very partial to inuksuit (plural for inuksuk - cairn). You find them all over the place and in the middle of nowhere in the tundra, pointing you the way. They are always a welcome site.

cheers

Nice to see you back on this site Skip. I could see your work on your FB page, but I like it here best.

I am getting along pretty well with the new hip. The Physical Therapist tells me I'm ahead of schedule and the Dr. likes his work. Good by me.

I ramped back up on the Arctic Char that I had basically carved before the operation. Got him to the point that he could stands on his own "legs". I always like that point in a carving. These photos don't show him in his final position. The nose will not be pointing so far down (and, hence, his tail won't be bumping the branch). But, it's close enough to give you the idea. I hope to finish the rocks and branch tomorrow.

The fish will be connected with a bit of boomarang shaped aluminum, courtesy of Koffler's scrap pile. oldsmile





The paired fins won't be connected until after the painting is finished. I just stuck the photo side fins in for the pic.

Glad to hear you are feeling better. The Char looks like his ready for some paint. Looking good.

finished this painting today...

"Vervain"
15" X22"

based on a little vista in my garden, I really like the contrast of natural and manufactured forms...a bit compositionally meandering but i like to build complicated compositions...

nothing complicated here. just a falling cat.

the Nikon speedlight has a repeat flash mode, allowing you to fire the strobe once and get multiple flashes (up to 100 times/sec in fact!).

took some repeated attempts to get the right frequency so the kitty would show up as non-overlapping images.

I don't get it...Why would someone tattoo "Failure" on themselves?

Especially, someone as beautiful as her.

As it has been said..."beauty is only skin deep"...

Scott...love the falling cat!

Fair enough question. like most of the people I shoot photos of with tattoos, there's a bit of a personal backstory. A couple of people have asked me about that, so I asked Ash if I could share it.

At age 15, her mom pulled her aside and told Ash that she was "a complete failure, and would never amount to anything." It was a turning point.

Since that time, there's been an unplanned pregnancy; a couple of years working as an exotic dancer in a "gentleman's club," [ironic quotes] with abusive bosses and grabby customers; a near-miss with an [ex]-fiance who ended up being abusive. In other words a whole string of bad breaks, bad luck, and bad decisions.

But there's also been, through it all, a beautiful baby boy; a high school diploma earned as a single mom; and (finally) a stable relationship with someone who treats her well.

You might notice the line drawn through the "Failure" -- it's to denote her belief that "Failure is not an option" -- and her persistence and belief in that is one of the reasons that she's not just one of my models, but has become a good friend of the family.

So just as beauty is only skin deep -- you can't judge a book by it's cover.
