NO NO NO NO NO, fixed the Mobile App for readability & am learning what things mean in codeland…

So…

Late last night I go to check our new Mobile App I’m so proud of…

Realize…Can’t read a thing…

Icons are pretty but words are microscopic…

ARGH!

Confirm with Joseph…He’s like:”Can’t read it”…

“I know”…

So late last night I’m creating all new Icon assets in high contrast black text on white snowy backdrops with some ice for texture…

Thank God my Mum took that awesome iPhone pic of me with the two swans last week!

I needed some blue light, Northern, sunny, & the look she took was perfect…

Used this for every icon backdrop…! Yay MOMs!

Loaded it all up, republished the APP, went to sleep…

Woke up 6:30 am…OH NO…Have to re-record the contest submission video…Redo whole thing…Resubmit all…

Waaah…

But did it…(I actually stuck it in the APP after…It’s a good video I did…You can see the video within the APP if you do the first QUIZ, click SUBMIT, the page then whisks you to the entry submission video with an awesome SONG(by Ryan Huston, called Do what you love, from the album THIS LIFE)…

The APP is at bwell.mobi/grove

Now if you go to the APP on a desktop you get this page on the internet…

It has a Flash Gordon Icon, it has a description of the APP, it has a screenshot which is buggy & is not showing right now, & it has some weird choices which I am trying to figure out…

Ok first choice is DOWNLOAD the APP…

I got something called an APK file…Couldn’t open it…It was labelled grove.apk

Found out if I just change the apk to ZIP I can open it…

I’m on a Mac snow leopard desktop…10.6.8

So just change the name of the ending of the file from APK to ZIP…

Double click now it opens & you get all the ASSETS of the APP…

Neat…All my custom icons, their custom icons(their is Infinite Monkeys the App creator service I use…)

next choice is…

email link…

That one opens up my email server on my computer & puts a whole message in it…

You can see in the picture what it will say…2nd picture from the top…

The third choice is send link by SMS which means short message service, or something like that…

I don’t use SMS so I am not sure what to put in the box…Their phone number? Their email address? I’m guessing a phone number maybe that this is a text message thingy…

I will update this post when I doublecheck that…(ok, yes…From a desktop computer, just type in the cell phone number of the person you want to send the SMS to…That will send them a text message with a link to this awesome App…)

Last choice is View HTML APP…

That gives you the whole app but you can see it right away, from your Safari or Firefox or whatever browser you are on & it is totally interactive & totally works just like the app will on your iphone or other mobile device like Ipad or tablet or Android like your Samsung Galaxy phone…

So that is neat…

So you want to design something in Blender to 3d print at Shapeways

http://youtu.be/ZnCf-5G7DYc This is the most excellent tutorial by Jonathan Williamson about how to model for 3d printing in Blender…My steps come from this video…

Blender is a free 3d animation software…

Shapeways is a company that will 3d print a design you make in Blender…

Very very basic first steps in Blender(WE are using the default cube as an example & the sizes of things are based on a  teeny tiny minimal size 3d print-really the smallest thing you might want to have made):

Step 1: In SCENE -change your UNITS to METRIC

Step 2: In the Properties Panel (N) change your DIMENSIONS to x: 4 cm  y: 4 cm z: 4 cm

Step 3: In VIEW, ALIGN VIEW, VIEW SELECTED

Step 4: In Properties Panel again (N), in View there, at CLIP: Change START: 1 mm (change start to 1 mm)

Step 5: Add Modifier, SOLIDIFY (Also change to Wireframe mode to see the inside of the cube)

Step 6: Hit CONTROL A, SCALE

Step 7: In Solidify change THICKNESS to 0.7 mm (Shapeways minimum thickness) (Note, Blender will change that reading to 700 um don’t worry)…

Step 8: (Go to solid mode), Go to Edit Mode, SELECT the BOTTOM FACE, Hit “I” for INSET, that creates an inset that you can adjust the size of…

Step 9: Your ESCAPE HOLE (the Inset at the bottom face) has to be minimum 2 mm …You can make it bigger…(Say 4 mm)…

Step 10: If you are measuring your inset hole, use S to scale, Hit SHIFT S, SELECTION TO GRID (this will snap your inset hole to the nearest grid edge)

Step 11: With your Inset Hole (Escape Hole) Selected, the face, Hit X, then DELETE FACE…This makes a hole in the bottom of your Cube…

Step 12: The hole in the bottom of the cube is important, integral, because the cube should be hollow & the 3d printers need a hole for the middle stuff to be removed from…So you MUST have a hole in the bottom of your sculpture for it to be hollowed out!!! (Escape Hole it is called)…

Ok at this point you can EXPORT your file according to what Shapeways wants…File, Export, then choose the one you want…(OBJ, STL,COLLADA)…

Note: Shapeways has specific parameters of what they want from Blender…They also have a tutorial…Must read! Really…

3d print
Here is what your hollowed out cube looks like in Wireframe Mode in Blender…Notice the hole in the Bottom…This file is ready to print…

learning to Animate using Blender 3d software(free):Attaching Bones to Mesh Shapes(4)

So this is like the biggest lesson I learned today…

You create say a cylinder shape, 3d, in Blender…

Then you put a bunch of bones in it…A skeleton…

Now you want to attach the bones to the skin so that when you move a bone one way, the skin also moves…

 

This is how in the new 2.66a Blender version update…

In OBJECT MODE, you press SHIFT then right click on the cylinder & also on the bones…

THE ORDER IN WHICH YOU SELECT THE BONES & THE MESH IS REALLY CRUCIAL…

OK, SO YOU HAVE TO SELECT THE ARMATURE LAST TO MAKE IT THE PARENT!!!

Then you press CONTROL + P

A menu appears with the word Object at the top…From the drop down menu choose “with Automatic Weights”…

Choose that…Wait…

Tadaah…

Now when you go to POSE MODE you can move each bone, & the skin will follow…The shape…You can see my all day’s work big accomplishment in the video above…

Really…This took me all day long to figure out…Wow this is hard…

if you do try to learn animation using free Blender software, remember that each version is slightly different, so be careful about which tutorials you are watching…Things may be different now…

Sorry this is so technical…But if you feel like learning animation with me, this was the biggest step…

I think after this hump, so to speak, I may be alright…

Warning: I have now been able to do this, then not…Then again for some reason yes…Then no again…I don’t know why sometimes it works & sometimes it doesn’t…

AHA…http://en.wikibooks.org/wiki/Blender_3D:_Noob_to_Pro/Bones Ok I checked the Blender WIKI & here is the reason…

Aha…THE ORDER IN WHICH YOU SELECT THE BONES & THE MESH IS REALLY CRUCIAL…

OK, SO YOU HAVE TO SELECT THE ARMATURE LAST TO MAKE IT THE PARENT!!!

This is why it was sometimes working & sometimes not working…Aha…

I created this video with the YouTube Video Editor (http://www.youtube.com/editor)

So, once you know how to model a shape, a mesh, in Blender 2.66a, then you are going to want to put a skeleton inside, bones…So then you are going to learn how to put the bones in, this is called Rigging…(rhymes with Digging)…Ok, now you have bones inside a mesh shape…How do you get the Bones to make the shape move? Well, in 2.66a Blender 3d animation, I did this…1)Very important first step by the way…Choose the shape first, FIRST, by clicking SHIFT & right clicking the shape with your mouse…Now…CHOOSE the BONE ARMATURE SECOND or LAST if there are several shapes…The LAST thing selected is the PARENT…The order in which you pick your things is crucial…If you ignore this you will be confused & sad because it won’t work…Armature LAST makes the armature the PARENT…2)Ok, the picking was in OBJECT MODE by the way…Step 1…So the very next thing you do, is CLICK CONTROL + P …CONTROL Button & the Letter P…This will bring up a menu(the Parent menu)…In that menu, choose “With Automatic Weights”…Ok that is it…3)Now go into POSE mode…If you click a bone in your armature, then rotate it, the bone will move & it will also move the mesh shape at the same time…If the bone doesn’t grab the shape you didn’t select your armature last…The bones have to be the last thing you choose when choosing elements…Promise…Took a whole day to learn this lesson…A very hard day too…Once you know this you have power…This, for me, was the major hump(so to speak…) I am posting this because I know how hard it was for me to learn & understand…(p.s. I have only been studying Blender for a week now…But this makes all the early grief worthwhile…)

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BT_udwOw-jQ I forgot to mention this video of how to rig a straw…This one was actually THE ONE that helped me to grasp the concept of what rigging was about…(rigging is like putting bones inside an object, connecting the bones to the object, then being able to move the bones inside the object & the object will move its parts individually…Instead of moving the object as a giant 2d lump!

Big Art Book 2013: free to submit (but do it now, March 4th is the deadline…)

Here is what I submitted to the Big Art Book 2013…If you see this on or before March 4, 2013, send a submission in quick! You can do it online & it takes a minute! Totally free too! (I just did mine now)…

The Spare Hand by Sari Grove

“The Spare Hand Project”: The Spare Hand is a prosthetic hand for someone missing one, but only a quick pull on & pull off for simple tasks like holding a dog leash or carrying a bag…It is also designed to be inexpensive & relatively easy for anyone to make…The magnets can carry up to 20 lbs…There is room for 2 more magnets to double that strength…It opens & closes manually…

size: 11″ x 8″

materials: screws, bolts, copper strapping, tube, winter glove with

wrist tightener, Plasti-Dip

year: 2013

artist: Sari Grove

type: sculpture

http://scarborougharts.com/2013/01/21/big/ Oops, here’s the submission link…

“A Spare Hand” …work in progress…

spare hand project 1

The Spare Hand project:(continued from http://grovecanadagrove.blogspot.ca/2013/02/joseph-brought-me-breakfast-from-whole.html )

*been thinking that once the spare hand has been dipped in Plasti-Dip to secure all the bolts & copper better, that it will go inside a glove…After the magnets get screwed on though, which they are not as of yet…Magnets will go on tips of “fingers” so that someone could carry something like a bag with handles or a dog leash with looped handle, when the magnets are touching…The magnets I am using will carry up to 2o lbs of weight when together…Magnets can be separated by a manual process when engaging the handle of a bag before carrying…

DSC03547

The copper strip at the top of the picture is just so I can hold that end while dipping the whole bottom part in black Plasti-Dip a liquid rubber compound that hardens but remains malleable…I am not dipping above the end of the clear tube, to leave the screws exposed, so that when the neodymium magnets arrive, I can just screw them on, without having any rubber dip in the way…

DSC03548

Above, I put a piece of copper wire through the copper strip at the top, so that after dipping the SparyCary ( a temporary name for now, indicating a prosthetic device to help people to carry things, like a spare hand…In particular for people missing a hand…) So, after dipping in the Plasti-Dip, I will suspend the SparyCary in the box to drip off if it is drippy, dangling from the pen which is stuck through the box tops…Note: Blow drying the Plasti-Dip after dipping speeds up the drying process & makes it less messy, faster…

Monday afternoon…Feb. 11, 2013: 2:31 pm: I poured the black Plasti-Dip into the clear tubes to coat the screws & bolts & copper strapping with goo…It is in a separate place, so we are not breathing in the rubber fume as it dries…Notice the top of the screws are left exposed for the neodymium magnets, a donut shape, to be screwed on soon… DSC03549

Aragonite Sand is what I use when a recipe calls for marble sand…Aragonite is in fact a species of marble…calcium carbonate…But available at pet stores in the aquarium section…I use natural, but you can get it in white or other colours like black(please don’t tell me that black is not a colour, I know, I know, sigh) or blue or pink or green…I am not using this for the spare hand, but it was nearby, so I took a picture, in case you were wondering from previous posts what Aragonite sand is…

DSC03550

A little bit crowded…I don’t have much space to work with, so you’ll notice the raccoon (in my homemade marble recipe), behind the cardboard box with the spare hand project, suspended from a pen, dangling with the weight of the Plasti-Dip…The raccon isn’t quite finished, but it needs to rest a bit & cure, so while that happens I am doing other things…With marble or cement projects, a good long cure saves alot of grief…

DSC03551

So as I was putting these two cans of Circa 1850 marine resin (powdered very strong waterproof glue), I decided to take a macro photo…This is what I mix with the Aragonite sand to make my marble…(I also add alkaline resistant glass fibres in 3/4 inch length…) I order this special order from Canadian Lumber centre at Dupont & Shaw…It’s also a harder to find thing so I thought a picture might help a bit…It is really strong…(I used it also to make sure the moss & grass were well attached…They are now!)

DSC03552

Gotta now wait awhile for the Spare Hand to cure dry…Next I put on the neodymium magnets…Then the whole kit goes inside a glove…

Be careful about swearing on your blog: (Why I built a newer website on Wix.com) A letter in answer to Weebly, as to why my site there has been slow…

I’m sorry…One day, several months ago, I was trying to use some new online program(piwigo.org)…I did alot of work trying to figure it out & had almost gotten it to work…I posted on my weebly site about my progress…Then the next day, I discovered that all my hard work of learning was useless & the new software wasn’t ever going to work for me(for the record, piwigo.org didn’t work, but I did get piwigo.com, another service that is similar, to work later)…So I posted again on the same post(on weebly)…But I was venting & though I don’t use swear words, that day I did…I used the f word 3 times in a row to express how frustrated I was with the software…Well, soon after Weebly shut down my entire site…Everything…The whole thing was completely blocked…I could not even get in to edit anything or try to remove what I had to guess was offensive…It was really quite something…So I wrote to Weebly…I got back a really terse message that my site was shut down & that was it…Tough luck…Nothing more…No support nothing…So I wrote back & explained that I was going to get a lawyer because Weebly had no right to keep all of my intellectual property from me…It was theft…Soon after the site came back up again…Someone else wrote to say they had changed their decision…I went in & took out the f words, even though nobody confirmed if that was the problem or not…I still don’t exactly know what happened…Anyways, I sent Weebly some money to pay for the year…Thinking that the money might protect me from future things like this happening…Then I went & built a safety site somewhere else, in case Weebly decided to lock me out again…I am in a waiting zone right now…Seeing how things work out this year…Deciding…Do I drive traffic to my weebly site knowing that one day this terror may happen again? Or do I move on to another provider, which might be a safer investment? This is why I am not driving traffic to my Weebly site right now…I just don’t know what to do & I am going to let time speak to me…(in the meantime my Wix.com site is great, as is my new WordPress blog)…

This black & white photograph of a bee with two flowers was an early exploration with my first digital camera…Lord, how I found those times exciting…the head is burrowing in the flower for FOOD

I have been using The DIVA CUP for maybe 5 years now…It is a cup that costs between 30 & 45 dollars, but you use it & wash it out & reuse it for years to come…It goes in in the morning & all day long it collects your period…At the end of the day you dump out the cup, wash it out & if you want to, put it back in to sleep or not depending if you like to take breaks or not…It doesn’t leak, unless you lay down horizontally to sleep & then maybe the liquid inside gets tippy…But it has saved my work schedule & my summer outings & well it is amazing & all women should have access to a DIVA CUP…No more tampons or pads or embarrassment or fear of staining, or not going to the mall cause you hate using bathrooms to change a tampon after you pee…Yes with the DIVA CUP you can pee or pooh & not have to take it out or anything! Anyways…It’s good…Sorry this was gross for some people…But hey, women bleed! Some men probably too…www.divacup.com

The photo above was taken by my mother…of her partner…Notice the Salvador Dali bench & clock…My mum sent me a card once of someone eating a bowl of cereal with a dripping droopy clock like the one above dripping from their spoon…The caption read: “Salvador Dali eating a bowl of surreal”…I loved that card…I put the grape sculpture (mine) over the face of my mum’s friend because he didn’t look too good that day…Magritte is an artist who put a green apple in front of  a man’s face on a painting…Maybe Magritte’s friend didn’t look too good that day either…

http://www.toronto.ca/zoning/contact.htm

Yes…I see that Section 37 gives 30% to City Council upon every approval of a zoning density

bylaw amendment…That 30% is skimmed from developers based on the expected profit if the

zoning density bylaw is amended…Which points to the fact that City Council is getting 30% of

any new tall building project if City Council changes the laws…Which means that City Council

in effect is taking bribes to change bylaw densities…Because so many bylaw densities in the

City of Toronto have been amended to densities previously unheard of in Toronto, more

pedestrians are now getting hit by cars…Increased density always increases pedestrian

vehicle contact & collisions…Each time a pedestrian is struck by a vehicle now in Toronto, the

blame is now on the shoulders of those City Council politicians who approved bylaw density

amendments in order to get the 30% off the expected project’s profits…This not only accrues to

bribe-taking but it also has now become responsible for many injuries & now fatalities…A law

suit suing City Council & all advisers & experts in the zoning division who have agreed or

advised or counselled to the issue of bylaw density amendments in Toronto in the past 10

years, is being considered…What recompense is the zoning committee prepared to offer those

whose loved ones have died due to corrupt bylaw density amendment approvals, as well as

bribe-taking in the form of Section 37’s 30% being written into the law, as if taking a cut from

developments in the city could ever be considered legal?

  • About Osteoporosis prevention drugs & why they are so dangerous:
  • Hi, I came here from the Art Biz Incubator…My name is Sari Grove…Many women in the past 10 years have been getting knee & hip replacements…What some don’t know is that the osteoporosis prevention drugs that they were taking actually Caused the cartilage degeneration…I thought I’d mention this because so many women don’t know about the Class Action lawsuits in Canada, the U.S., & elsewhere concerning Actonel, Boniva, Fosamax & other osteo prevention drugs in that category…There has also been a spate of vitamin supplements that also contain the ingredient that is causing the problems…In fact, it is magnesium, a relatively harmless laxative or absorption helper in small doses, but degrades cartilage in larger doses or extended periods of time…Our neighbour has had a knee replacement & now a hip replacement, because she was taking Actonel for 7 years, & no one told her that that was the cause of her joint problems…Anyways, if this is not related at all, at least I told you…I’d feel remiss if I didn’t…If you do know women(or men) who are still taking these drugs, tell them…The side effects are also musculoskeletal pain, jaw pain, & weird fractures like thigh fractures…Check your vitamins for magnesium stearate at the bottom- same stuff…People get addicted to the laxative effect without realizing that their are losing vital nutrients- end stage big problems…The antidote is actually to raise bilirubin levels, which rebuilds cartilage & replenishes the gallbladder…It is unusual to have to raise bilirubin levels, so go online & look at all the things to avoid to lower bilirubin levels, then do the OPPOSITE…Yes, eat salty food, fatty food, & all the stuff that is bad for you…That helps to rebuild cartilage…Athletes have too much magnesium from exercising so much- personality type of hypermagnesemia is mean, rude, intolerant, independent, anti-social- you can drive family members away…
  • More about Boniva & other drugs in that category:
  • I should mention…The Class Action lawsuits about Boniva are piling up…It causes musculoskeletal pain, jaw necrosis, degradation of all cartilage including knee, hip, shoulder, ankle, spine, requiring replacements of those joints, & femur fractures as well as other atypical bone fractures…It is a really dangerous drug…All that class of osteoporosis drugs under different names in different countries have caused women (& some men) inextricable pain & suffering…Sorry, I know this post is about art, but since you put the word Boniva in the heading I had to add the warning…Sally Field’s ads for that drug have sold a great number of this very dangerous drug, unfortunately…
  • http://classactionlawyernetwork.com/class-action/boniva-jaw-complications-hip-fractures-fosamax-lawyers/ Here’s a link to just one of the Class Action lawsuits about Boniva & drugs in its class…Bisphosphonates…(basically lead to increase bone growth in your thyroid gland, & Magnesium as a laxative- it’s the magnesium laxative that is causing the gallbladder problems…Too much magnesium eats into cartilage…Ironically, the antidote to magnesium overdose in the gallbladder is actually mercury…Yes mercury…The thing that people are worried about with ADHD, autism, dyslexia, jaundice, gallstones…Mercury & magnesium live in balance in the gallbladder…Mercury is what people worry about when they say their bilirubin bile levels are high…But mercury is also the thing you need to replenish if you have overdosed on Boniva or other bisphosphonate that are magnesium laxative heavy…Women get addicted to the laxative effect of magnesium in these drugs not realizing they are pooping out their own cartilage, from their hip, knee, shoulder, elbow, spine, neck, ankle…Pooping too much is dangerous…So is Boniva, Actonel & that whole class of pooping drugs…By the way, arthritis & osteoporosis are not the same thing…Arthritis is cartilage…Osteoporosis is bone…Magnesium destroys cartilage in large doses…Lead builds bone…But you can get lead from a potato or carrot…You don’t need a drug…Pencils still have lead in them…They just changed the name…

DSC03557Mighty Putty (from Canadian Tire) , you mash it together, then apply it…I stuck it to the sharp edges of copper strapping that were protruding…It’s ok, it completes the “Noble rot” theme…Sauterne wine is made from grapes that are left to rot on the vine…The resulting very sweet juice that is left over makes a wonderful wine…The grape is the Semillon grape from France…

((photo caption: the soft perfume homemade in the dish is made of lemongrass essential oil, solid coconut oil, shea butter, & wax smiles…4 parts wax, to 3 parts solid coconut oil, to 2 parts shea butter, to 1 part essential oil…I was making this for myself & of course, made too much, so I had plenty of leftovers…What I discovered is that this solid perfume balm “heals” my homemade marble…If you smush it on the finished piece it makes it smoother & happier & less crackly & shinier & nicer…I feel that the aluminum component in the wax is great for repairing cracks in the marble(Aragonite sand is marble sand) which is calcium carbonate based…The oil lubricates…The shea butter moisturizes…The essential oil cleanses, especially lemongrass…It also makes the sculpture smell nicer…The red inside the cracked index finger is Cinnabar, also known as Mercury, which raises bilirubin levels in the gallbladder, thus repairing cartilage damage…Cinnabar is medicine & can be painted onto things topically…I painted it on the crack to fix the crack…Cinnabar is like cartilage…Oh, I forgot…I also added a spot of vanilla absolute to the solid perfume balm…That is a smushy black gooey stuff that is very expensive & comes in a teeny bottle…Althea’s Cupboard (http://stores.ebay.com/Altheas-Cupboard )will make solid perfume balm for you & it totally can ship across the border to Canada from the States because it is not a liquid & not alcohol based & it smells nice…p.s. I think it’s the zinc in the lemongrass essential oil that kills the lead which is gumming up a thyroid filled with lead graphite pencil dust & causing your toenails to be gummed up with ugly…(sculpture is now on top of the refrigerator)(refrigerator)(yes I said REFRIGERATOR)…))

 
Word, Letter, Line:

If Jesus is the Word…(The Word being a group of letters, a letter being an animal shape, a rabbit for example, the formation of a letter is made by several lines each maybe representing the movement of a rabbit in space, the single line being just the first impression or existence of one rabbit or maybe just one soul as a single line…)

Then the Holy Ghost might be the Letter…(The Letter…As many know, a letter is a symbol, a reduction of a shape to its most essential information, the letter A looks like an apple perhaps, reduced to its core…)

& God the father might be the Line…(The Line…The Line is one thing…A blade of grass is one blade of grass…A Line perhaps…)

So…If Jesus is the Word then let us look at the Word…A word is made up of letters…A letter is one formed idea representing one congruent thing like a rabbit…A line is a one aspect thing, more like a blade of grass…A closer look at a blade of grass…More like abstract art in that it does close-ups that may be hard to recognize the field for looking at the blade so closely…

So when you take many many blades of grass, lines, then you get a letter, let’s say the letter A is an apple which represents the association of many blades of grass living together in one fruit…So many lines make a letter…Now take many apples/letters & put them together, into one form, & maybe you get a rabbit, a word…

The word rabbit is made up of many letters, let’s say fruit, let’s say apples…Each apple within that rabbit is made up of many lines…

Let’s start again…

One apple has many lines or blades of grass in it…

Many apples makes a rabbit…

One line is a blade of grass…The Father

Many lines is an apple, a letter…The Holy Spirit

Many apples is a rabbit, a word…Jesus

Now…How does God feel about art genres or styles today? Well, that is a trick question…God is a three part word…3 letters…

Which third of God are you speaking to…Or more correctly, which God of the three are you asking about art?

God the Father likes the line…Abstract art…One blade of grass…style

God the Holy Ghost, also known as the Holy Spirit (possibly the Mother Nature), likes the letter…-

-The apple…One specific object, a fruit…A simple work of art that depicts one thing like an apple…Still Life art

God the Jesus, the Christ, the Messiah likes the word…-

-Many lines becoming an apple, which becomes many apples, which becomes a rabbit…Now a rabbit has motion, so it moves through space which requires perspective & distance & the passage of time maybe…Alex Colville has a running poodle painting which shows the dog running through a field of grass at speed, with perspective on the field as it has chalk marks to delineate a sport ‘cage'(by cage I mean the chalk lines that somehow keep athletes in a locked space despite a lack of good fencing ) …So art that moves…Kinetic art…Art with momentum…Energy…Modern art

So what art style pleases God? Well, tread carefully because which aspect or part or third or character of God are you trying to please?

Being Authentic is not the point of art nor being an artist by proxy:

If art is artifice, then artists are artificial…if artists are supposed to be artificial, then the fraudulent artist is the one who is real…

Authenticity is a contradiction in art, unless you are being authentically fraudulent?

I mean to say that truth in art is not what we are looking for…What we seek when we seek art is something that is not real…

What is “real” so to speak is the Hand of God…usually…(The Hand might be the Father God)

Some say Mother Nature…(the Holy Ghost might be affiliated with Mother Nature)…

When one says “God is in the details…”

(That might be Jesus God, who detailed some improvements to Old Testament Holy Bible Law)…

If The Trumpeter swans & other waterbirds at Bluffer’s Park would like to rest or sit on the beach, unmolested by dogs or people or children (yes, children are not people…they are children, apparently a different species in my mind…), then perhaps chalk lines, like they draw on football fields would be sufficient boundary to delineate beach area just for nesting…This would be a drawn cage for the waterbirds, like a sport field for athletes, & passerby would know, like on any field of sport, to stay off & be forewarned…

If all people & dogs & children were taught of these chalk lines, then they would keep their people & dogs & children all on leashes when walking by the beaches where waterbirds might be…

thumb index-WM new Note: ZINC /  Life brand Vitamin D3 Drops 1000 IU /UI are an “effective” antidote to lead/ plomb bullets &/or lead pellets or lead “shot”… A potato may contain good ‘lead’…Lead paint may be leaded merely due to lead dust exposure, due to side of the road dust scatter from cars driving by…(what I mean by effective is that I know lead or lithium or olanzapine zyprexa for example, traditional lead based remedies, can be reversed (recidivism, relapse, retreated as in retreeted , possibly retweeted but also ,could be rejected?)…meaning that a lead pellet theoretically should be able to be removed easilier, easier, by using Life brand D3 drops around the pellet or wound or in fact directly on the pellet, if it so be lead…Hint: Green pellets made of Bismuth (charcoal) Bi, are now available in the U.S. apparently…These can be removed using Fluorine Fl, which is easier to source since it is in many water supplies already & at your local dental hygienist’s desk…Hygiene…(Note the difference between coal & charcoal is in reference: coal might be referring to the Carbon Oil part of the coal wood that is pre-burnt, whilst Charcoal may be referring more to the CHARRED part or burnt offering part or burnt part…It is a case of inflection & abbreviation WITH cause…)

(This paragraph is in question:)
Thyroid…More about Zinc: Olanzapine Zyprexa which is a Lithium based lead ‘plomb’ implying bone building implying Osteoporosis fighting supposedly drug pharmacautical doctor endorsed (Clarke Institute Dr. Persad), also contains Zinc which may cause Tardive Dyskinesia, Muscular Dystrophy, Agent Orange “Syndrome”…or general ‘twitchiness’…(The Vitamin D3 drops seem to contain magnesium which can cause excessive laxation of poop with cognizant loss of cartilage & resultant arthritis or rheumatoid arthritis & /or polio or meningitits or arachnoiditis or rupture of cartilagenous knee joint hip joint finger joint or spinal cord joint cord…ie: cord of spinal cord is laid down before bone as cartilagenous structure then bone forms around that infrastructure.)..
(this paragraph is in question)

(Okay I am going to correct the paragraph in question now: THIS IS A CORRECTION NOW…)
Ok, first of all…Lead, lithium, gabapentin, olanzapine zyprexa, potato dirt, bones all contain plomb lead an element essential to bone growth structure & the thyroid gland…Zinc is its opposite also in the thyroid gland…Too much zinc causes eradication of BONE…Too much lead causes inflexibility of bone, stiffness, lack of movement, multiple sclerosis, sclerotic-ness in general, slowness, heaviness of bone, heaviness…Tardive Dyskenisia, a side effect from excess bone builders, excess Gabapentin, excess LEAD, is actually slow forming Multiple Sclerosis…Caused by LEAD excess not Zinc…This is why that paragraph above is WRONG (in question)…
Also…Vitamin D3 drops ENHANCE MAGNESIUM & TITANIUM, they do NOT necessarily CONTAIN Magnesium & Titanium…Although jamieson tells me they stick magnesium stearate in all their pills as a PILL LUBRICANT, so they don’t stick together…If you have polio or rheumatoid arthritis BEWARE-magnesium stearate is DANGEROUS to you-also Magnesium (not manganese which is a totally different thing & is found in peanuts), um, magnesium is a total laxative for the gallbladder…(It is how you remove gallstones-magnesium is…) (too much magnesium & you destroy all your bile, your cartilage, your joints, knees, elbows, hips, neck, JAW, it’s like inducing Polio or spinal meningitis-so don’t overdo it…How do you know you took too much Magnesium? You get jaw pain/dental pain…Took me only 3 days of Magnesium to feel jaw pain, that is how little you need to supplement with…Oh by the way; If you don’t feel jaw pain but are taking magnesium pills or taking pills that have accidental magnesium stearate in them as a pill lubricant which is most, it may be because you are smoking cigarettes & the zinc in the cigarettes (like agent orange) is destroying the bone in your face so you don’t feel pain correctly…or you are an alcoholic & the Titanium in the alcohol makes you forget the pain correlation, or you are just too stupid to know that you are overdosing on magnesium stearate laxatives because you feel like poohing is a job…(What I mean to say is that some people are so bored that the act of poohing makes them feel like they are working…)Oh also people get addicted to laxatives…Magnesia of Milk, milk of magnesia, big addict-er…
(Okay end of correction of that paragraph in question)End of Correction (plus rant)(sorry about the word stupid btw, it’s Sunday please forgive me)…

Note2: Carbon C (not to be confused with calcium Ca) “soot” exposure may increase Carbon charcoal oil residue in kidneys, which can lead to Down’s Syndrome or can also lead (lead as in leed) to cleared out healthier kidneys, depending on carbon to nitrogen ratios…(Nitrogen or green chlorophyll=like things like Barley Grass Powder or green tea leaves, leafs, being the antidote to carbon oil heavy Down’s Syndrome or Mongolian-like features- if one doesn’t like that style by the way btw)…Bats may look Mongolian in Mexico…Not all…kidneys…

Sorry this thought is in question)
mercury is hot(this is outright wrong), if mercury Hg is the antidote to Mg, which I know it is…(this thought is in question)

Correction: What I mean to say is that the heat of the tv set made my Zeolite rock turn more like to glass…Which means that heat degrades things like Zeolite rocks…Which means that people who are magnesium rich, need to be careful about hot weather…people with polio or spinal meningitis or joint replacements, or athletes with cartilage damage, need to be kept colder…Coldness is a feature of mercury, or bile, or cartilage builders, or snow, or ice…Hotness is a feature of magnesium, or epsom salts, or dolomite rocks, or zeolite rocks…(End of correction of thought)…

Hg is also good as a back remedy for those who have Mg magnesium, exercised too much…In the form of a parad mala, silver with mercury, beads, be aware that silver is an antibiotic too, lowers blood sugar, so be careful…Gallbladder

“Soldier” on January 2nd, 2013…

I should mention that these are indoor photos, done on the spur of the moment right after inserting the grass…I’m pretty sure the whole piece will look a little better when it is all dry & cured & I can photograph it in better outdoor light…But I wanted to show how it is looking now…You know how that is…soldier backSoldier soldier postersoldier 1Note: did you know this artificial grass is made from hair? (not plastic)… soldier 2soldier back mosshttp://www.ebay.com/itm/M00254-MOREZMORE-Faux-Fake-Artificial-Moss-RIVER-BANK-Dark-Green-WoodlandScenics-/140714890399?pt=US_Dolls_Bears_Toys&hash=item20c342d49f The picture above is just a simulation…Was thinking of getting some more grass, then I noticed the listings for moss…Starting to wonder if it needs more bushy grass, or maybe a layer of moss? Or maybe I need to just call it quits? This has been a difficult thing to work on…First, the copper pipe armature was complex to figure out…I mean, the whole thing had to be figured out from scratch without any guides…I cut the copper pipe myself & used pipe connectors to fit it all together…Then I strung wire through all the piping & connectors so it would all hold together well…I did add some crazy glue at the joints as well, but the wire was the big thing…The chicken wire on top was not as hard, but cutting it can get you all scratched up…The main thing was all the hard thinking I had to do to try to make an armature that was really strong without welding…This was my first no-weld armature for ferrocement design…My later no-weld design is far more elegant…But this one needed to be done to get to the next one…Cement became marble when my Aragonite sand (marble sand) became easier to source because cement, the white stuff, in Canada, still only stupidly comes in 40 kilogram bags which no human can carry safely…So after complaining to all the health & workman’s compensation & insurance boards & the cement companies, I switched to Aragonite sand as my primary…Aragonite sand from Petsmart in the reptile section is really just marble in sand form, calcium carbonate…I figured this out because I couldn’t get marble dust easily when I was needing it for my cement recipe, & thought I could find a chemical parallel…Aragonite sand is what I came up with…The guy at Kreitmaker (cement & alkaline resistant fiber supplier) thought it was a genius switch, especially since he couldn’t find marble dust for me either…So then I was making my own homemade marble…But I needed powder glue, waterproof, because when I used liquid glue it stunk…I finally found Circa 1850 marine powder glue on special order at Canadian Lumber centre…But I still need to wear a respirator I found- the powdered resin(resin means glue) stinks too…The final layer of powder gold mixed with the resin & water was a little messy too…Then the decision to fill in some cracks with the grass…My main problem was that the raccoon I picked up off the road had been hit in the jaw so hard by the car that his jawbone had come out…Which made his nose look more like a dog than a raccoon…I don’t know why I thought I could do a proper sculpture…Well, it is proper it’s just that I thought somehow I could bring him back to real through the art of it…Instead (& I have done this before) I re-created what I saw…A mess…A poor lovely creature who had been hit by a night-time speeding driver, a mean cold mean person speeding at night, who struck this poor boy raccoon so hard the jaw bone swung right out…You know we found the female mate & a young child raccoon as well in the next two weeks? Some tool or several tools have been speeding on Mount Pleasant under the Crescent road bridge in Rosedale, along the Rosedale valley road on the way to the highway, & up near the Mount Pleasant cemetery…I wonder who? Drug dealers making a delivery? Pizza delivery guys trying to stay under the 30 minutes or it’s free rule? teen boys? Moron girls? Whoever is speeding through Rosedale  at night & killing raccoons, should be fined, ticketed, penalized, breathalyzer tested, forced to do public service, & so on…Why is hitting an animal with your car not a penalty yet? It is cruelty to animals…I think the SPCA should have powers here…If you see someone hitting an animal with their car on the road, take their licence number down & report it to the SPCA…If enough people do this maybe we can get some laws about this…Speeding…In a car…At night especially…That is wrong…Terribly terribly wrong…

Anyways, the messed up sculpture of the raccoon that now looks like a dog, well that is how it happened…I wrapped the poor boy raccoon in my merino wool sweater, put it on the seat of my bike, & walked it to the VEC veterinary emergency clinic…Not because I thought he’d live…But because it was wrong to leave him to be further smushed by ambivalent car drivers…Because he needed some love, even near death, or in death…Love after death is still love…

One of the consequences of my actions that day in 2011(June) was that I got lice 3 days later…Which is why I now have very short hair…I cut all my hair off that summer, due to the lice, & it turns out it looks great…So I thank the raccoon for giving me my bold new look…My long blonde hair was a cliche anyways…Short & spunky is so now! R.I.P. friend, rest in peace…Sari Grove

Notes on the grape: When I ordered the artificial grass from the Morezmore store on Ebay http://stores.ebay.com/The-Morezmore-Estate, they did something that I love…They sent me a free sample of grey polymer clay…I had been wondering if I should try to cover the sharp egdes of my cut copper strapping, the ones that stuck out from the armature, but hadn’t gotten around to getting the supply…This tiny sample of grey polymer clay was perfect…I touched up any sharp points, then used my blow dryer to heat the clay up to set it…

DSC03462(this is a close-up of a copper piece jutting out from the grape-the blob on top of the copper is polymer clay…Now the sculpture is safer…I remember an artist who had glued glass shards into a canvas & cut herself on the hand while hanging the piece…It makes you consider safety more… DSC03463

Then just hang out & when everyone eats, take the plastic bag away & throw in the recycling bin…The carabiner with the retractable reel is so you can attach your folding tiny knife onto your jeans’ ring, then stretch out the reel when you use the knife…It’s so you don’t lose the tiny knife & it keeps your hands free when you are carrying the wild bird seed…(Tiny things that make the details of your life perfect!)

soldier grass soldier grass 2 soldier grass 3Ok, well the Soldier is NOT finished…

I have decided that it does need some river moss & some more grass…I am going to order some more from Morezmore on ebay…This will take a while to arrive…At least I know now that my marine powdered glue with water mix is holding strong…Today I checked & boy that grass is in firmly! Phew…was worried…

P.s. The title keeps changing as I change the work of art…Wed. feb. 13, 2013: It is starting to look more like “Raccoon” again…

Update:Monday April 22nd, 2013: Soldier has been renamed “Spring” & you can see how he turned out in later posts…https://grovegrove.files.wordpress.com/2013/04/sculpture.png here is a quick picture of how he looks like now…There are others…
