***BLINK DETECTED***

That’s so funny.  I was photographing this piece today and my camera lectured me with a big hello digital warning that someone in the photo had blinked.  Aside from the impossibility, I’m a little angry with my camera…if it so damn smart then why oh why can I not take a photo without glare?  I’m blaming my camera.  My camera blames me…when will it end?

It is the end of this piece though.  I was thinking of adding a ribbon to hold that fish atop my model’s head, but no….I thought it might be a bit too distracting.  The title?  The Vanity of Technologies.   Right?

All the parts…

I like to look at paintings up close….so, I thought, dear viewers, you might like to see what my camera work leaves out – – I added several detail photos here.  As you can see, a close up view reveals (that what might appear to be an over-aggressive brush when you view this piece as a whole)  0’s and 1’s  are dissolving from view…or that’s what it’s supposed to be anyway.  There are those that hypothesize  we do not live in a base reality, that the universe is merely a hologram – a projection of reality.  Well,

hummm.

And, you thought I’d finally given up painting?  Well, it has been a while since I’ve done anything worth sharing.   This is what is on the easel at the moment, a nice piece featuring a glass of spilled wine – – spillage without breaking the glass!  It’s a miracle!  A glass saved…although, saved or not, I can’t help but wonder if that bow had anything to do with it.  It’s a work in progress – needing much more paint!  Oil on cheap canvas,
