I double box

Use corner protectors. They can be simple and home made. Cover the front of each painting with full sized foam board panel and wrap with bubble wrap. Then seal both ends of a box just slightly larger than the painting and cut it in half. Slip each half over the ends of the painting. Mark with Your n...

Drawing from the minds eye

Thanks kcortese and bergina My topic has always been way outside of most interests. So I construct elaborate narratives to draw people in. I did check out several photos of mules and harnessed. Put them away and adapted once I understood the animal anatomy and function of straps and clips. If I use ...

Small Detour

I am making every effort to have at least one new painting showing at every available gallery show in Frederick. Besides having to do a lot of work, galleries have different philosophies and some have very limiting content requirements which can make things difficult. While still painting within my ...

Way to go!

We were shown how to carve and shape large interlocking blocks of polystyrene (the blue stuff) and trowel on convential cement/sand mortermix with a depth of about one half to one inch. The secret was to add a bonding agent to the cement which im...

Drawing from memory

I occasionally use some reference material but put it down and draw from memory. I used a photo of a dog scull for the totem and an other formarkings on the dog. This is the same pooch I draw over and over again as are the urchins. I try to not use photographs that much, mostly I study master works....

Story line

With the rise of city states power will be in the hands of those trained in the art of war and just as in ancient Sparta bands of untethered youth terrorize a burning landscape enforcing conformity.

All very good points

Erika A Mad Max-type of existence will probably evolve in some of the city states. But it has to be short lived when you factor in civil wars insurgencies, pandemics and famine. Few tradesmen/craftsmen who know the old ways of everything handmade even exist now. I doubt many of this generation could...

Short supply

Leather will be a short commodity. People ate all the cattle generations before. The same is true for most textiles. Both wild and domestic animals are in very few numbers. Cotton takes great expanses of irrigated land something better used for what limited food production may still exist. This pain...
