” A Pale Pink Flamingo Mermaid Blog “

Flamingos were scattered over the parking lot. and the interior of her dodge dart.  She stood in the doorway steaming. ” How did that strap break? Now I’ll have to repack all to those  flamingoes by tonight if I am to make it to Syracuse tomorro,”  She began picking up the plastic birds…” ” Hey,” shouted a guy pointing at her coming from the Stoned Mermaid Club,” I remember you…..”  She turned as he got out of his yellow camaro….

Lavender sprigs scent my nostrils

an idea glows over lashes

blinking answers

Painting, Portraits And Ethics

” A Pale Green Mermaid Blog”

Painting is an art, but art is also a business, and if you are hired to do a portrait of someone then it is up to you, as an artist for hire, to do your best- to provide the service you were paid for.

Now if you are painting for your own expression then all bets are off your work is your own, sometimes even you don’t know where your work will take you.

I think it was ridiculous to put in the painting an aside/reference to an event in that sitter’s life that they themselves would dislike, and then when no one noticed it, to bring up the hidden reference yourself! It  is a definite no no in the artist’s book of ethics!!

If I were Clinton I would put the picture in a shredder and hire someone else to redo the portrait  !!!!!!

Perhaps something in the rose garden with buddy !

Fractals Mathmatics And Expanding Your Brain Power

” A Pale Green Mermaid Blog “

Fractals/ quantum theory suggests that parallel universes (universes that exist alongside the world you live in)  are everywhere and they can be created by a mere thought on your part which generates electrons which are the building blocks of the universe ie reality….your life.

A parallel universe where another you exists, living a parallel life enjoying themselves unbeknownst to you!  or known to you ???

Now you may say yes you may say no to these ideas but in stretching a brain via  physics all you need is a pathway to walk to get to the thinking process, your thinking process that opens up ideas and epiphanies for your perusal… the way to get to physics ( and metaphysics the flip side of physics in my opinion) is by contemplating/reading about art or science.   For physics (and metaphysics) are bridges to and from – art and science and while you are walking on those bridges – that is where insight and inspiration make themselves known.

And who wh,o who I say amongst us cannot use a little inspiration and insight in there lives?

Book of the day to get you started on the road to stretching your brain

A fractal is a mathematical set that typically displays self-similar patterns, which means it is “the same from near as from far”.
