For BOG

Haven't had time for art lately, but this came out of a long and unengaging conference call tonight.

It's Goldie with 1908 Indians (as in, pre-Federal Reserve) for control knobs and a 10 oz Wall Street Mint pickup (as a hat tip to Karankawa's frequent reminders of the baloney hiding in plain sight as a flicker in the matrix).

Edit: just saw your post with the tough news. My condolences. Hope this post finds you in good health and good spirits.

Thanks for posting such beautiful art. So many people recognise that art is what we are. Life is our gift - make the most of it . Our true self is what matters. We are meant to be individuals. Collectivism is for losers. Individualism is the thing that has driven human progress more than anything else. The individual is what has made humans great!

Just to prove a point I am going to award myself a point on the post previous to yours in 5 seconds from now (the post titled bohemian) That will give me 2 points.

Rex

It has been suggested in previous posts by certain people that you are a wanker. I don't think you are, In fact I think you are a unique and beautiful person.

@BOG and Atarangi

Thank you... I was moody, going through my files, listening to music, thinking about those two girls Turd mentioned. I think, we all lost someone this way, someone we knew in the past. I lost two of my close friends... Anyway, that picture above is "different". It's not an oil on canvas. It was long time ago, in 80's, when I bought the first color Macintosh. And then, the same year, there was a package under the Christmas tree. My wife saved some money, made phone calls, and for weeks she was waiting to get it for me. It was one of the first painting programs for Mac, Studio/8... just one 400K or 800K diskette, for $550 then. ;-) I would never spend so much money for a computer program at that time. We didn't have any money, it was just our second year in the U.S. But she did, and I will never forget that. So, that was my first digital painting, using just the "mouse". It wasn't easy to do at that time. ;-)

I am not sure that -- gold.always.wins.

Magpie - can you see how much fun that is?

That particular site isn't the best scenery-wise (imho), but has the requisite deep canyon & subsequent low rental ;-)

(OK we stole the idea off some Africans - I think they used vines. No bouncy. We like bouncy)

How many tourist attractions have you seen that are essentially a hut, some wire, rubber cord & carabiners?

NZ rocks!
