Artsy Fartsy Tuesday – New, and Music
The photo challenge prompts for today are New, from the Daily post, and Music from the 52 Snapshots of life. I have decided to post my After Before Friday post, on well, Friday. So look for that later this week.
New, as in a new venture. Al has started painting. He really caught the painting bug last fall, but hasn’t had any time to do any painting, until now.
It’s been really good being in the desert, because he is able to paint outside, and practice just painting what he sees.
He has an antique pochade box that he has had several years. It can hold a pallet, and a canvas.
We found an antique surveyors tripod that he fixed to fit on the bottom of the box.
He now can pack all his painting gear into the new for him, but old, boy scout backpack and go walking till he finds a good spot. We were pretty excited to find this stuff the other day in Quartzsite.
This is all very fun, and new. Follow this link to see more New posts.
The photo prompt music from 52 Snapshots of life, made me really think. I like music, we listen in the truck while we drive, and I occasionally plug my MP3 into the stereo and listen. But I really prefer quite. We park away from people so we can have quite. No RV parks for us.
I love the music of the desert. The coyotes singing every night, the birds, the breeze. And the silence. Last year I made a wind chime, I really like the soft tinkling music they make. The wind chime on the left was made from old bits of metal I found in the desert. I also added the old trade beads. It’s just a nice soft sound. The wind chime on the left, I found last week in Quartzsite. I have always wanted one like this, and for $5, I couldn’t resist.
These hang right outside my front door. I moved them to this tree to photograph. The two of them together, make nice music indeed.
Look for more posts from #52snapshots and #PBSG and hosted by The lazy pit bull.
