Albert Schweitzer

In everyone's life, at some time, our inner fire goes out. It is then burst into flame by an encounter with another human being. We should all be thankful for those people who rekindle the inner spirit. so thanks to those rekindlers!!!

"What happened to you?"

Entry for Monday Artday...Transition.

We all go through transition in our lives.

Sometimes we don't even see our own

while we're caught up watching someone else's.

"Stitch"...finally complete and scanning properly...technical difficulties with a new scanner or most likely operator error. So much to learn. Anywho, a Bonobo is an extremely intelligent mammal who is so genetically close to humans that it's mindboggling. At the zoo near me, they have tried many times and ways to escape their habitats. One time they actually picked the glue off the windows and hid it. Fortunately the keepers discovered the plot shortly before the window was completely removable. While the window was reattached, the Bonobos were kept in a meeting room where they watched soap operas, lounged on couches, and played video games.
Oh, since their arms are longer than their legs (they hang out mostly in trees) they hold them over their heads when they run on flat ground!

Entry for Monday Artday...busy town.
This is an example that I use for a 4th grade one-point perspective project. It is taken from a drawing called "Urban Blast" by Hans Georg Rausch in 1966. It's a great way to practice perspective with endless possiblitites.
