map of surgeries

I had an eye appointment to check on my retina repair - it's coming along just fine.
I didn't realize how many procedures I have had done until I mapped it out...

video attempt

I want to start posting videos on my blog. This is my first attempt with my canon ... I tried to take out the sound but I didn't know how. I tried the audio swap on youtube but it turned the video to 10 minutes and took FOREVER to load.

Thurdsay I met with the North County Society of Fine Arts and painted a watercolor. There wasn't very much shade so we didn't stay long. It's still fun painting "en plein air" I put my piece on ebay, you can see it here.

The video is only 1 minute long NOT 9 minutes long.
still learning.

The Tipping Point

The art flick "tipping point" was about 4 artists and an exhibit of interactive sculpture based on health issues. I enjoyed the artist's work process but I would have liked to see more of the sculptures.
(2006) NR

This thought-provoking documentary explores the interaction between health, art and the creative process by shadowing four artists who live and work in Boston's eclectic Sound End neighborhood. As the artists work together over the course of two years to create "The Tipping Point Machine" -- a piece of collaborative artwork that is both interdisciplinary and interactive -- they reveal much about their bodies and themselves."
