Are you following Happy Kotter? Try these platforms…

I just recently came across the Google Arts and Culture app and decided to give it a try. The app is free on the (iOS) App Store and I believe it is also free through Android as well as Google devices.

Google Arts and Culture allows users to explore museums worldwide, get a real-life sizing perspective of notable works and try taking an “art selfie”

The art selfie feature allows you to snap a picture of your own face “a selfie” and compares your feature to works of art.

You can also tour museums and take a virtual walkthrough viewing paintings and sculptures and architecture.

I am excited to keep exploring this app and all it has to offer. Give it a try and show me your “selfies” in the comments 😁

Enjoy the video review and don’t forget to follow, like, subscribe, and drop your selfies 😁

I have technically been A.B.D. (All But Dissertation) since mid-November, but I took an extra class so it feels real now. Completed the last assignment for Fall 2019. Finalized grades for the classes I teach. 

Did I tell y’all I sold an actual craft that I made with my hands on eBay? Even inspired by satire, Art (that I made with my hands) traveled across the country and I got money. That’s the wildest and most not intentional happy goal I have ever accomplished. I don’t want to seem presumptuous, but is this how Michelango felt looking at a slab o marble? When he was like “Mike, you got this buddy. The entire universe exists in this finite space, and you, you rugged magician, are going to set it free. 500 years from now some ABD doc will use this as reference for a joke post on Facebook. Also, Facebook will be created as a social platform provided to those enrolled in an institution of higher education. It will evolve to a platform encouraging those with acceptably private thoughts to share them with the masses for validation. It’s ok though, not here to judge. The internet has successfully interposed a barrier to authentic interpersonal interaction but creates a safe barriered platform for people who may not speak out otherwise. There will be too many Trump memes. Also, the United States will be a thing and democratic elections will take place to establish a guidance system for the greater good and allocation of available resources. I forgot my favorite chisel. I can’t even with this today. What do I have to do to get a frosty cold Iced Macchiato with Almond Milk? Almonds make milk against intuitive reasoning. After I finish with this rock, I might take up ceiling painting. Nobody else is doing it. Haters are my #motivators. Hashtags will be confusing pop culture and functional reference between generations. The “number sign” and a way to track your own musings or ensure visibility to folks with a shared sentiment will make it nearly impossible to foster clear communication between Traditionalists, Baby Boomers, Gen Xers, Xennials, Millenials, and Gen Z. Honestly, it is not any single generation’s fault that the waxes and wanes of human development and progressive change from generation to generation. One cannot simply expect an idyllic existence. Light doesn’t exist without darkness. The moon would not illuminate if not for reflection and placement of the sun as the earth spins on an axis. This crazy Copernicus kid is working on proof that the earth is not stationary but the sun. His time will come. I sure hope Mom’s making Stove Top.
( *I used google here for some historical accuracy*)
(**Yes, I am ok)
(***Yes, This is exactly how my mind processes thought when left to its own devices)
(****Trust roughly the first seven sentences of this post. The rest is utterly ridiculous.)

Friday night, a closet full of paint and canvas, and a desire to create. The house is quiet and the weekend requires very little of me. Diving into self care includes dirty fingernails, hair in a knot, and glasses on.

I love intricate works of art. Creations from an astute perspective. I appreciate those things from other people. My patience runs thin and if I am unable to finish a (craft) project in a fairly short amount of time, I am unlikely to stay focused. Abstracts are fun. I think it gives the viewer the ability to creatively finish a piece of work on their own, so each interpretation is unique.

The inspiration is personal. The drive is a desire to see myself reflected in work. While most, if not all, are a great deal dissimilar from myself, I am inspired and pleased by art that reflects what I experience every day.

As a supporter of body positivity and a widespread acceptance of comfort in what the body is capable of, I enjoy sketching, painting, crafting, writing, and the like. I am not an artist by trade, but we are all capable of something beautiful. The first piece featured below is a 10 minute sketch followed by acrylic on canvas at about a two hour completion time. Enjoy!
