Count me in for strippers and let PPSteve have the stripers.

This may be a trick ponder.
Although answered, keep both. Add ice to the water as it melts. Adding new drinks to the mix will ensure that they get cold faster because they will be surrounded by 32˚ water. Whereas the ice will only touch a portion of the container in the cooler and take longer to cool. Ever wonder why the can or bottle on the bottom of the cooler is colder than those sitting on top? Now you have your answer.

It sometimes takes more than the Mythbusters to satisfactorily convince a Mutant.

Jay if you want strippers your on your own, if stripers are your game, I suggest a guide. End of story now that I have been corrected from Canada, Kansas and Texas! Geeez you might think this posting thing is a new technology here in AR!

Very very ambitious for watercolor...... But stunning. Do the sky, then after it is totally dry, do the bottom in pen and ink.....

Mornin' Muties everywhere. Tim, Steve, just sent you messages to update on the Sunday morning question. Now I'm off to w__k. (Steve, I'm one of the fortunate ones. I happen to really enjoy my job and the people I work with. Still, I won't be sad for a minute this time next year when we load up in Bow and head to AZ and points west!)

Marty - I would do the bottom in pen and ink first. Let it dry... then turn it upside down and paint the sky.

Or... take the jumbo box of mutant crayons... and use all the colors and just scribble all them all over the place... on top of each other and eveywhere. Then take a black crayon and cover over all of getting a nice pack waxy build up. Then take a wooden cuticle stick and carefully scrape through the black revealing the colors underneath... now that's art!

Disagree.... It is going to take a lot to get the sky right..... Maybe several tries.... Skues are really really hard.
Dont spend the time on the bottom until you get the sky you like...... The bottom will be slow, but a cakewalk.....

Nice waxy buildup for sure....... They actually make that stuff pre done now, just carve it back.... Scratchboards,
I still dont like it......

The results. Well sorry, I see the 20 sec video did not load but you can see what he started with and if you zoom in on pic see the remarkable results. All done with spray cans and smeared with crunched up paper or kitchen utensils.

Would an artist attempt to duplicate or replicate it - or just imitate it or draw from its influences. Or is art just photography with a brush or other medium. I took a class in college - Self as a Work of Art. Visiting Harvard Art Historian. We read several books from different periods of history, poetry and short stories or passages - listened to music and viewed the art from the same periods.

The final exam was aural and visual - placing people - their attire and activities - the music and the written word in their peridod and of course short answer writing on the compare contrast order.

The concept of art for and from the ages was explored and how the people and times were influenced by and represented in life and art. Within the periods the status quo - challenged by the young - the old masters documenting the day at the races - or docks or fox hunt or the rotund beauties of the day.

It was really quite interesting. It was one of those classes that subtlety tore away at the one dimensionality of a young life and opened up the layers of complexity and uniqueness of each of us. Or as my father would say - destroyed young minds and ruined society and mocked social norms. Kids today... I tell ya. I loved it.

One the authors was a Dandy - Quinton Crisp - How to Have a Life Style and How to Become a Virgin. And the role of the dandy in history.

A couple Crisp quotes to ponder...

It's no good running a pig farm badly for 30 years while saying, 'Really, I was meant to be a ballet dancer.' By then, pigs will be your style.

Life was a funny thing that happened to me on the way to the grave.

Ponder amongst yourselves.
