Spray paint replaces
tall mountain pines of summer
I return to The City
Blue Angels Over Coit Tower Maneuvers performed in tight formation at 400 mph.
I burned the onions!
First I heard the sound. Then I heard a roar. The Blue Angels performed a flyover as they flew over San Francisco Bay.
I know, my feelings are contrary to a lot of other people’s feelings when it comes to the Blue Angels, but I just can’t help it.
I love the sound of a Ferrari engine revving up. I love the speed of a hydroplane.
I think the pilots are awesome when I see them flying in a Delta formation at 400 mph.
I’ll be watching the noisy jets this weekend, unless a blanket of fog rolls in, covering up the Golden Gate Bridge.
Following a suggestion from Otto’s post, I took a walk. http://munchow.wordpress.com/2014/09/09/diversify-and-become-more-creative/
Check out two of my favorite dots, Otto and David. I think you will will be pleased, then go take a walk.
A month ago I was painting 7 foot paintings about how I felt about the wars going on in this world, today. The paintings are waiting for me to come back to the studio. Meanwhile, I’ve been collecting dots, drawing trees, writing a little and following feathers down the street.
Catching the fall breeze
Feather didn’t stay
We stopped on the way for In-N-Out Burgers
Fries and orders of strawberry milkshakes
Manmade shapes turned into nature’s biomorphic forms
As we climbed to a little under 7,000 feet
We baked french bread at this elevation
And didn’t make adjustments to the recipe
Straightening our limbs we step out of the car
First, just quickly go look at the pond!
Oh, look at the quivering yellow leaves on the Aspen tree!
Down by the creek’s edge, I look up
Past cottonwood trees at the water’s edge
I see a little fir Christmas tree tucked in
Between the tall green Jeffrey pines.
Frosted Glass Aerosol Paint gives a semi-transparent coating to the windows in my studio. The paint application is old and is wearing off. This gives me an interesting background for photographs. One day I had finished cleaning up after an open house; light coming in through the windows produced interesting shapes. Using my Canon Powershot 11 camera I made some photographs that are part of a series titled, Studio Lines.
