I went to the Perez Art Museum today and I saw this painting and thought eh, kinda dumb and a wanna be Hans Hoffman rip off . I walk up to the name who did it and it’s my former art professors painting! Stanley Whitney! what a jerk! I didn’t learn a god damn thing from him . He thought I was a real natural and always complimented my stuff but made one of the other students cry because he told her that her paintings sucked and to drop out of painting. I hated his teaching style . He had nothing interesting to say. He lived in NYC and commuted into Philly to teach at my art school along with my drawing teacher . That drawing teacher was a real piece of work. He always complimented my drawings and had some really cool lectures that were pretty out there and weird. He was a little creepy to me and later I heard He ended up having an affair with one of the students and got fired and fled to Mexico for years before returning to the states to teach in the Midwest at some nowhereville school.
This is Stans painting. Lol.

Hi DST! It’s so nice to see you around these parts and peeking into the cave for a few! Cheers! It’s been a super hot couple months but looking forward to the cooler weather in an endless summer. Those mini Lego heads sound fun. Do you have any pictures of them? Candy Castle sounds amazing. Have a fun day ! :pbongsmilie

I'll get some pics. Lego stores 'normally have a station in them where you can build your own figures, and even details them on a printing machine to your desire. Covid regulations stopped that the last time I was in the Amsterdam store but I assume it will return.
Groetjes aan Mr DAT!

Doing great! He says Hello! What a day on the beach... We got to swim with a pack of manatees today at the beach. They were so gentle and never touched us but swan by our legs and I followed them all over . They were so playful and friendly!!91831041-1BC3-45CC-B1BF-5D45BFEF43D4.jpeg43726976-1948-4279-B9FF-C286D320422A.jpegCCBBD7A5-2895-4A5C-8276-9ECA4DA70CAC.jpeg

mana-wtf-tees they look crazy!!! never heard of them....are they related to The Haggis? lol.
Lmao, I had to look that up and those Haggis are hysterical. I can’t believe those things have such beautiful hair. I want one!! So cute. But no, not related as far as the research I have done. The manatee is a distant relative to the elephant. But Mike thinks they look like Walrus . They are fascinating gentle giants of very warm waters . On the endangered species list because they are running out of food and get hit and killed by propellers from motor boats. Most of them have scars from getting chopped up by boats.

It's amazing how many things are related to elephants....Dassies look like rodents, but they are related to elephants as well. That always made me scratch my head. You see loads of them in South Africa.
How civil is civilisation, sheesh...propellers!! probably from too many boats being in the waters!!

The waterways are very narrow. And boating is huge here. It’s a fucking mess with the water issues around here. You ever heard about Red Tide? I am not familiar with Dassies.

Just watched the Bob Ross documentary by Steve, his son. So sad. I loved Bob Ross.

I am planning to oil paint in retirement. Probably just get stoned and sit in front of the easel! :eyesmoke:
When are going to retire ? I never watched a full episode of Bob. Paint by numbers was never interesting to me.

Red tide is toxic. It’s not good at all. It kills fish and food the sea grass that the manatees eat. This year has been devastating to the manatee. About 1,000 have died this year already . It’s the worst year since like 2016. I am working on an alligator pencil drawing . It’s a small sketch and the way the alligator is positioned is very tricky to fit into the small page I worked it on. So I am making the final ajustments and almost done! Have a totally awesome day!
cheers

The occurrence of red tides in some locations appears to be entirely natural (algal blooms are a seasonal occurrence resulting from coastal upwelling, a natural result of the movement of certain ocean currents)while in others they appear to be a result of increased nutrient pollution from human activities.
it smells really bad and makes me cough. It appears to be happening a lot more often the. Just a natural occurrence . A local told me that there are big sugar cane factories that run their waste off into the river that runs out to the coast.

This book I got from the library is fascinating. It has some really cool old pictures of strange shit people did with gators back in the day like wresting alligators . One dude pinned the gators jaw shut using his chin. Look mah , no hands !! An old Seminole custom, To make the customers gasp.
