'Join Me?' notes and close-ups from TRUNKS ART!

 







Coeur d'Alene, Idaho - October 13, 2020 - Well, it's a wrap my friends.  My physics art series was finished when I completed my "Join Me?' composition last week.  It took a year to do all 12 and I loved every minute of it.  Theses are some of my notes and close ups of that final work.  Notice how I can't seem to follow my own sketch plans because I end up doing something completely different once I get started - every time! 💖💖💖

And that's a wrap! TRUNKS ART completes the PHYSICS SERIES with "JOIN ME?!"

 

Coeur d'Alene, Idaho - October 10, 2020 - "Join Me?" (#12/12) - More than ever, the ability to cope is an invaluable skill to have.  I don't mean ranting on Facebook or building a shack in the mountains to isolate yourself in - I mean that internal dialogue.  What's it saying to you? Mine is desperately trying to divert me from my current trajectory towards crotchety, old, get off my lawn guy.

"Join Me?" represents my coping mechanism which  takes into account that besides all the earthly roles I have, I'm also a card carrying member or 'being' of this beautiful, enigmatic universe.  When I revisit annoyances through the lens of the 'being' that I am, I notice how these seemingly, all-encompassing hassles diminish in importance.  As weird as it sounds, imagining myself on an asteroid helps me do this.  It doesn't mean I don't deal with problems - they just don't ruin my day like they did before.

A little behind the scenes of Aurora Borealis from TRUNKS ART!

 






Coeur d'Alene, Idaho - September 4, 2020 - Although unorthodox as hell, I like showing SOME of the 'behind the scenes' and close ups of my work.  These notes and images are from my recent 'Aurora Borealis' art composition. After SO many years, I still hang on for dear life as the creative madness turns into a magic carpet ride!  Thank you for allowing me to share with you. 💖💖💖

TRUNKS ART is proud to present the latest in the PHYSICS SERIES: AURORA BOREALIS!

Coeur d'Alene, Idaho - August 28, 2020 - "Aurora Borealis" (#11/12) - I've been lucky enough to see the Aurora Borealis (or Northern Lights) a couple of times from an airplane but when I learned how the phenomenon takes place, I couldn't help but think about an equally astonishing facet of my social interaction - especially in today's "don't need don't trust" cultural mentality.

Okay.  Here we go.  Deep breath.  The earth's core contains molten iron which produces a magnetic field around our planet called the magnetosphere.  This is eerily similar to my cold, black heart (at times) which shrouds me in a cloud of detachment and defensiveness.  Hmm.  Interesting.  The magnetosphere shields the earth from damaging, fast moving and highly charged ions that have escaped the sun's gravitational pull.  So weird.  My cloak of protection works the same way.  COVID-19 updates, non-mask wearing freedom fighters, political zealots, inequality protesters, commercial advertisements and the like just bounce right off of me.  But some of these subatomic solar particles DO make it through the earth's magnetosphere at the north and south poles where the magnetic field is weakest to collide with oxygen and nitrogen atoms high in earth's atmosphere producing a colorful, celestial light show that both awes AND inspires.  

Unbelievable!  This is what happens in my heart (that iced over piece of coal) when an act of unexpected kindness or selflessness slips by my cone of resignation.  I feel my heart soften, swell and burst with love in that one precious moment.  It's beautiful but fleeting - just like the Aurora Borealis.

It's "HAPPY HOUR" at TRUNKS ART!!

Boise, Idaho - June 18, 2020 - "Happy Hour" (#10/12) - Ever say to someone, "Hey, it's 5 o'clock somewhere!" as you're pouring yourself a cocktail in the early afternoon?  Of course we know that's a fact here on earth but did you know it's true across the universe?  What's more astounding (if you subscribe to Einstein's theory of relativity) is that EVERY happy hour you've ever HAD or WILL HAVE exists as a present moment relative to an observers' distance, speed and direction.  I know.  My mind is blown, too! So let's pause, gather ourselves, take a sip of our martini, try to resist the thought that our most regrettable, alcohol-infused moments live forever and be grateful that the future holds more happy hours!  Yay! 💗💗💗

'Space Time' Notes and Close-ups from TRUNKS ART!





Boise, Idaho - June 4, 2020 - I like showing some of my notes and sketches along with some closeups of my artwork. A lot of work goes into each composition and 'Space Time' (#9/12) wasn't any different.  I'm loving this theoretical physics art series and almost sad that I only have 3 more to do!  Next up: 'Time Travel!'  Thanks (as always) for taking a moment to learn a little more about my work and for your supportive, motivating comments. 💖💖💖

NEW ART from TRUNKS ART! It's time for "SPACE TIME!"


Boise, Idaho - June 3, 2020 - "Space Time" (#9/12) - When I told my friends that my next art piece will focus on 'Space Time,' they thought it would be about the new, social distancing era.  Umm...no.  Space Time is a widely accepted Einsteinian theory where motion through space can effect the passage of time.  I'm hoping that my two dimensional rendering will interest your three dimensional imagination into understanding a four dimensional concept!  The basic premise is that we are always moving through the Space Time continuum even when we're standing still.  Imagine you're driving north at 60 mph when suddenly you start heading northwest at the same rate.  You're still heading north but not as fast because some of your motion has been diverted westbound.  See?  That's like Space Time.  Don't move and all of your motion is through time.  Move and your motion through time is slowed.  So now you know it's an inverse relationship and a good reason to start moving.  Just make sure you stay 6 feet away from me when you start! 💖💖💖
