Maybe not a classic… but it is a book. I’ve collected a bunch of images of my paintings honouring the humble mason jar and its ability to preserve things we value. Then I encased them between some mighty fine pieces of cardboard along with a dollop of written commentary. If you’re interested you can find the book at https://www.blurb.com/b/11043854-well-preserved .
Sometimes the planets align, and then at other times everything seems out of orbit. I hope your own personal solar system is humming along in tune.
Today’s painting continues an interest in the machinations of Singer sewing machines.
Today’s painting has been on the to do list for a while. Now with it’s somewhat seasonal colouring, I think it’s on the ta-done list.
A couple of precious metals, a little paint, that’s my jam.
December is here and the mercury is falling. It’s time for some comfort food, perhaps a little taste from the heat of summer?
Most of the red leaves around our home have fallen. I’ve managed to preserve one of those flame-like beacons of autumn in today’s painting.
Maybe the painting should be sub-titled “Just another Ship in A Bottle”.
The ship enclosed in this mason jar however is an image of The Melita. It was the passenger ship that carried a young Phoebe Connor, her parents, brothers, and sister to Canada as they immigrated in 1920’s. The aforementioned Phoebe was my mom, so the Melita at least to me will never be just another ship.
How did they make those ancient architectural marvels? Today’s post “Licorice Pyramid” offers no clear answers, but is still a tasty treat.
Elevated above the indigo sea rests the “Licorice Hi-Rise”.
At least until the sweet tooth kicks in.
