This piece was painted at Upper Twin Lake in Bridgeport, CA. Normally I visit the site a couple of times and then finish the paintings in my studio.

Mntmun, "Sierra Bear" is wonder full: If It needs be said,
Let me say, oo-mhan thats a golly deep, deep pool!

As hard as it is to believe,

I have a correct-it-all program that adds different colored lines to
highlight spelling, grammar, agreement/structure mistakes.
(yeah, I ride over it instead of overriding it)

It was a work of art to see the triple underlined in 3 colors very short 1st attempt to try to say;
Gnomes Gnow what they Like Gnomes Like that
an are going ta call that something like
'The Pool of deep Surprise' or 'Deep Surprise Pool' - funny if only to me.

Last weekend, with it being the MLK holiday we had plans to vist a local display center.
This was as the threat of an ice storm was swaying all logic here in the northeast.
I received a text alert informing us that 3 or 4 of the artist whose art had been on display were leaving the show early.

Still, we always go; the space has a good vibe.
It is important to us that we teach our kids to be both artistic in their presentations & supportive of the Arts.

We understood that we were going to a lesser than great 'exposition',

This was of a lower standard than most high school art programs.

Seeing us & understanding that we were disappointed, the head of the Docents program, who knows us & our kids from their having attended programs/volunteering, was apologetic.
Thinking it would make us. . . ? I don't know how to define it.
She allowed access to a cordoned off doorway.

where I was allowed to take these snaps of one remaining masterpiece I was not discouraged from taking pictures, which is often frowned on, in the gallery spaces.

In this instance only 3 of 7-10 'rooms' were open.
The largest room, was also the most obscure & by size the largest art work.
The floor was covered in "Sticks of drawing Chalk" aligned in a repeating chevron pattern.If it is not in your experience, a good description of taking teenagers, talented teens, to modern art museums,
It is like herding talking/texting cats,
"oh no, wer're fine, you 2 just go on your own, we will catch up.
I think we missed the smirk & knowing nods ...
soon enough the giggles led us back to corral them. I left out the more obscene "art" & I'm not sorry about it. but that is why this thread is awesome,
everyone has strong imaginations,
so go ahead think ~ "blue body-parts" Arms, Feet, knees, An Abdomen/buttocks all a disconcerting yellow . . .
think: a yellow Elbow, sprouting incongruous patches of hair.

No hair on any of the few headsagain I ask you to imagine; some torso missing heads....
other body parts? not so much. One, A Starck sculpture of a not fully decayed female rib cage, glazed in metallic black cropped out of a concern to not run afoul of moderation, maybe act of self-moderation?Given what was out in the open fully on display & beyond fingers and tongue~ the presence of three stacked boxes, with a peep-hole in the middle of the middle box was concerning,
As chaperone, I looked 1stIt was benign as were these
although, paired with the other yellow body parts
like the 'Hairy Yellow Elbow'
this 'hollow Leg'
left a lasting impression,
if not a damaging mark on the young psyches?
The "Cornichon*" Man,- losing parts; bits of acrylic coated broccoli had elicited the giggles*Cornichon are a type mini pickled cucumber. They are noticeably nubby and bumpy, tart and crunchy.
The French call them cornichons, and they're sold under the same name in the US, but the English call them gherkins. and the likes ofAs well as whatever the orange thing in the 1st picture.

It's not a fractal. I iterate different functions in the complex plane, whereas a fractal comes primarily from iterations of a single function.

I didnít really think it was, I was just being cute. 😽
Iím reading his The Misbehavior of Markets, at a walking pace.
And why isnít there a Nobel Prize for math? Certainly more important than peace!

I seem to recall something about a mathematician messing around with Nobel's wife.
