A 7896

we saw one of edward burtynsky’s photos at the mcmichael art gallery which displays many paintings by the group of 7–it was a photo of huge open pit mine in australia (like those shown here)–originally, i chose the group of 7 partly because of their *positive* influence, but burtynsky shows a AUS_SLO_08_07negative side of humanity–similarly, i choose natural colours (see below), in the hope that my art may subconsciously influence others to choose nature over artifice–but when i see the dark side in one of burtynsky’s photographs, i think maybe i should darken my palette.

galumph–Our mother would stand on the stern of a canoe and jump up and down, eventually falling into the water, for our entertainment. She called it gaLUMPHing. Lewis Carroll coined the word in Through the Looking-Glass, a blend of gallop + triumph.

Mary Wollstonecraft by John Opie (c. 1797)Mary Wollstonecraft (1759-1797) ‘is best known for A Vindication Of The Rights of Woman (1792), in which she argues that women are not naturally inferior to men, but appear to be only because they lack education.’ have we come a long way?

the great red spot--Mix15_1400x1050--by andrew questarted with escher’s fractal-like ‘circle limit iv‘. i find fractal art beautiful, in the way i find trees and galaxies beautiful. traditional art is one-off usually. but fractal iterations, like galaxies and trees, are beyond counting.

tinysusan rose early to go birding at tiny marsh. i continued to explore fractal art. susan prepared her gardens. i transferred from my wheelchair to my trike and joined her. after, during my ride, i revised in my head spring’s colour scheme (which had been too similar to summer’s greens) to include the fresh air of the sky (hey! dared you open your window all winter?) and the earth newly liberated from snow (for example, ‘albers spring‘). bj overnight.
