“The Scent of Paint” from deb clarke


From Deb Clarke;

The Scent of Paint.

“my studio is in my kitchen. the oil paint gets messy. i have nearby

sheets of blotting paper to cover this up when i am done working for

the day. i don’t need inspiration to work. i just work. right now i’m

still working on the 22″ square with the standing figure. it’s leaning

against a gold verre eglomise of keys. it’s not finished.

this morning the scent of the paint was a bit heavy in the kitchen.

i took the paper off the palette. got out the easel and started to work.

decided to take the figure off the center of the canvas. re drawing,

trying to relate some color notes. not too picky. just trying to

stay out of the center.

2 hours this morning brings me to this. i will leave the set up for a bit.

go for a short walk. have some lunch. and start again. i have six hours

to paint. or stretch another canvas. maybe both.”

best, and onward.

I didn’t notice the reflections on the side of this Beautiful boat until I viewed it on the computer.

The Ghost Chair, Believe it or Not

The Ghost Chair, Believe it or Not

We’ve been doing a little remodeling, adding hardwood floors, 2nd Bathroom etc.

They (Certified Ghost Hunters) say that when you remodel it may awake spirits that are disturbed that your changing their habitat. This seems to be the case with our Rocking Chair. Sometimes when watching TV it will start rocking slowly then increase speed. I did a little experiment. I asked the Chair a few questions. One question always gets a response. The question is “do you like people sitting on you? It always speeds up when asked this. Any GMGer’s have similar experiences? There must be with Gloucester being founded in 1623. Let us know.

Reward Offered by M S Foley Stoneworks of Gloucester, MA,

M S Foley Stoneworks of Gloucester, MA, offers reward

In his announcement, Mr. Foley says the following:
“Almost Free Stone Sculpture

foley sculpture

This photo is of “Infundibulum”, a local granite abstract sculpture I carved in 2012. Its value is in the $2,000 to $3,000 range, but I like it very much, so I keep it overpriced when it is shown. This sculpture is yours if you can meet this challenge….

I would like to see a single scientific study, without glaring bias or irregularities, which concludes both the safety (for human consumption) and effectiveness (in dental cavity reduction) of fluoridated drinking water. The study must be double-blind, placebo controlled and peer reviewed, and covering a study with a duration of over 5 years.

I have searched several months now for a study like this, and have failed to find a single one. It is important to me, so if you find one which meets the criteria, Infundibulum is yours with no strings attached.”

Do You Remember When? The Worlds Gone Crazy!




1988: US warship shoots down Iranian airliner

An American naval warship patrolling in the Persian Gulf has shot down an Iranian passenger jet after apparently mistaking it for an F-14 fighter.All those on board the airliner – almost 300 people – are believed dead.

The plane, an Airbus A300, was making a routine flight from Bandar Abbas, in Iran, to Dubai in the United Arab Emirates.

The USS Vincennes had tracked the plane electronically and warned it to keep away. When it did not the ship fired two surface-to-air missiles, at least one of which hit the airliner.

Navy officials said the Vincennes’ crew believed they were firing at an Iranian F14 jet fighter, although they had not confirmed this visually

Dog Bark Park Inn: Idaho

Dog Bark Park Inn offers patrons a chance to stay in the belly of a 20-foot tall beagle — literally. The inn was built to resemble this canine species and is a fine example of chainsaw wood art. The Times, a British newspaper, has declared it one of the wackiest of hotels. Although lodging costs $90 a night, it’s free for visits.
