Rocks in the Dryer: May 2011

It's Brimfieldtime baby! Browse my archives and you will quickly find I am a Brimfield junkie (snarky play on words). Don't let the name scare you. The Brimfield Antique Show is a whole lotta everything. Antiques? Yes. Flea Market? Yes. Junk? Yes. Fried Dough? Yes. Miles and miles of vintage splendor? Yes, Yes, Yes, Yes. It's everything my heart desires and more. I've been going to Brimfield religiously for about 11 years now and have learned a lot along the way. My first visit there was mind-blowing and a bit disappointing at the same time. Much of it seemed more "Flea Market" than Antique Show to me and that was not what I anticipated. After going for so many years I have now gotten much of it sorted out. I have my favorite parking spots, favorite times to attend and of course favorite v

Its not every dinner with college presidents that starts off with one offering to teach the others how to skateboard. But when I got together the other night with the women who head five of the seven institutions in the Claremont University Consortium, Harvey Mudd Colleges Maria Klawe volunteered even before the appetizers arrived to give skateboard lessons to any of usand she was perfectly serious. I knew then that it was going to be an interesting meal. By the time the entrees appeared, Pitzer College

Back when L.A. graffiti artist Sight was a teenager, he began slipping out of his mom's South Central home late at night, armed with a razor blade or a can of spray paint, to claim the city's surfaces as his own.

Custom wall finishing for beautiful effect - Home Decor @ 518 - Home Decor Albany - Valerie DeLaCruz -

When I visited the Parade of Homes a couple of weekends ago, I was quite taken with the work of Donna Mock of Classic Wall Finishes. Usually I feel like faux finishes are too overwrought, too decorative or precious. But these gorgeous walls were subtle artistry that cant be replicated with wall paper or stenciling. This large paisley effect is all hand painted on a dark charcoal background with a silvery overpaint casting a metallic effect, and I marveled at how precise and consistent the size and finish was: I wonder at the patience this kind of painstaking artwork takes, and appreciate the old-world craftsmanship I saw. Her illustration and mural work can add a personal decorative effect for a beautiful accent. Donna can do Venetian plasters, wood grains, furniture and cabinet over-gl

Animation - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The bouncing ball animation (below) consists of these six frames. This animation moves at 10 frames per second. Animation is the rapid display of a sequence of images to create an illusion of movement. The most common method of presenting animation is as a motion picture or video program, although there are other methods. This type of presentation is usually accomplished with a camera and a projector or a computer viewing screen which can rapidly cycle through images in a sequence. Animation can be made with either hand rendered art, computer generated imagery, or three-dimensional objects, e.g. puppets or clay figures, or a combination of techniques. The position of each object in any particular image relates to the position of that object in the previous and following images so that the
