Saturday Is For Art: A Few Photos





I have not painted in a while. I guess I am taking a break. My energy to paint runs in cycles. Right now the cycle I am riding is of the two wheel kind. I am still getting in condition for RIDE CINCINNATI on June 13Th. RIDE CINCINNATI is in its fourth year and raises money for breast cancer research for the Barrett Cancer Center of the University of Cincinnati.

Here are a couple of photos I took recently. They will have to do. I am not by any means a photographer. I have a little Canon point and shoot digital camera, so please don't tell me these are not very good photos, I know that. Just try and enjoy them for what they are. The first photo is my interpretation of the Ashcan School. The Ashcan School of painting was an American school of painting in the early 20TH century. The next few photos are of my neighbors white cat taken through a metal screen. Bud and I thought the cat photos would be a welcome change of pace from my usual fare.

I hope everyone has a safe and pleasant weekend.

Stay tuned.

I used to really like Ashcan painting. I probably still do, but I would need to be reminded a little.
And that is a really pretty cat.
I had time alone today, and I couldn't think of anything to paint. I go in cycles, too. Right now, all I want to do is knit.
Happy Cycling.

Hurray for biking and I know you like sun flowers. Bellingham's Bike To Work and School Day posters used a sunflower drawing for 2008 and again in 2010. That graphic by a person named Vincent. I used it on my blog also. Happy cycling.
