I don’t know the origin of this “moon in a barrel” image, but I like it.
I recently bought a 2013 Sticks calendar in Boulder, Colorado, and it got me interested in the artist. This is another work from shulock.blogspot.com, a variation on The Thinker, by Rodin.
The Persistence of Memory, by Salvador Dali. A favorite painting, and the melting is fitting for a 99 degree day.
This is a photo of a sidewalk in front of an art museum in Santa Fe, New Mexico. (Sorry, I don’t remember the name of the museum and I’m too lazy atm to look it up.)
I applied a Gaussian Blur effect to the cars on the right and the bright stuff at the end of the corridor (using Gimp), and it’s amazing how much that makes the rest of the image “pop” out. Nothing else has been altered.
I was going through old photos recently and found this “Bleeding Heart” drawing that I made on a Buddha Board back in February, 2015. FWIW, Buddha Boards seem to make good Christmas gifts. I got this one as a Christmas gift in 2014.
This image comes from 2014, but it’s still a cool idea today. Someone created an art project in Juneau, Alaska that allowed people to complete the sentence, “Before I die I want to ...”
“Always stretch from the source, the core, the foundation of each asana. Keep your attention internal, not worrying about what others see, but what the Self sees. Each movement must be an art, an art in which the Self is the only spectator.”

I use Gimp to work on images all the time, but I was just reminded of Inkscape as a free tool for drawing and illustrating.
This is a small image of a painting I bought a few years ago in Santa Fe, New Mexico, called “Starry Night Over Santa Fe.”
From the Georgia O’Keefe museum in Santa Fe, New Mexico.
