confidence is granted to the less talented as a consolation prize."

Kelly also created this piece after first making her own
ink! Unfortunately my scanner isn't large enough to present it in
its entirity so I've posted it in halves here. Kelly described the
ink making process as the use of an "ink stick" that is made from
soot. She explains that the soot can come from what is left over
from burnt pine and also what's left over from an oil lamp. The
Chinese call the soot from an oil lamp "lamp black."

Airport Art
"Red Hail Speaks"
by Mateo Romero
This is a small piece of a very large mural-like painting I discovered at Denver's International Airport on April 28, 2005. The plaque adjacent to it read: "Indigenous resistance to invasion and dominance is represented here. Denver played a key role in the expansionist thrust in the 19th century, colliding with Native cultures throughout the plains and mountains. Rifles and eagle feathers are metaphors for the traditional spiritual role of the warrior society. The Lakota script tells of Sitting Bull's death. The prone figure in flat Native ledger style and the red hail symbolize the violence of the human condition." [The prone figure, mentioned on the plaque, was out of my carmera's view]




Artists at Work:

Since I have no artistict talent, myself, I'm always fascinated when
I encounter artists engaged in their craft. I try to obtain their
permission, for such photos, without disrupting their work (too much!)...


Artist along Japan's Philosopher's Walk During the summer of 2005 my family and I traveled throughout most of Japan, discovering many artists along the "Philosopher's Walk." Artist Painting Boulder's Flatirons In July, 2005 I was driving along Cherryvale Road, in east Boulder, when I discovered this lady painting the perfect setting!


Ted Garcia and his one year art project at Morrison, Colorado - 02-15-2009 I regularly make my way through the small hamlet of Morrison, Colorado (It's about 5.5 miles/9 kilometres from my house or about 16 miles/26 kilometres southwest of downtown Denver) on my way to a small hike that I conduct for exercise each week. This particular winter afternoon, a Sunday, was very bright and clear - probably perfect weather for both photographer and painter!

Anyway, entering town from the east I spotted artist Ted Garcia just beneath the large "bouldering" wall that greets visitors arriving via Colorado Highway 74 (Morrison Road). Ted took time to explain that he was painting one picture per day (regardless weather!) for an entire year! An interesting project I'm sure you can learn more about on his web page at: www.tedgarcia.com.

TCarol Jenkins - February 2016 In February, 2016 I ran into Carol Jenkins and her art. But, unfortunately, I can't recall which
mountain town this was at but am sure it was somewhere along the "Front Range" near Denver...
