Lady in Green Breezes By Superman -Painting at the De Young Museum

Lady in Green Breezes by Superman
Oil on Masonite
That would be Mel Ramos' "Superman" at the De Young Museum.  Watching figures stroll by this powerful little painting could keep me entertained for a good long time. Just the other day I painted "The Man in Yellow Suspenders Encounters Superman," and I am proud to announce that "Man Admires Superman," painted in 2010 is included in the Falkirk's Annual Juried Exhibition, March 22-May 25. Reception is March 22, 5:30-7:30, 1408 Mission Ave., San Rafael. See you there.  Everyone's favorite College of Marin teacher, and accomplished artist, Chester Arnold, juried the show, so there is sure to be an interesting array of Bay Area Art represented.
Another thing that struck a chord with me recently was NPR's Science Friday program called, "Getting the Springtime Buzz on Bees." Entertaining, educational, humorous, and as always a little thought provoking on the side. I just love how passionately research scientists present their subject matter. They manage to shine a light on the natural world around us in a way that makes the most mundane seem miraculous. Be sure to listen to the part about what happens when bees drink alcohol.
