Art and Photography Mashup

I have several things to share with you today! I had an idea about two or three months ago and I was only able to complete it over the past weekend. I’d painted three background panels in three different styles for a mixed media project. I won’t share the photos of each of them because I really like how the collage photo came out. I’ll share that to save space, since I use the free version of WordPress and space is limited. I also have four photos I snapped and edited with Gimp for you to view. To find out more info about any of these items, please click on the photo you like here to be directed to my deviantArt page for each. (Info on the triptych is all on the same page at dA.) There, you’ll also be able to see which of them are available for purchase and in what form (print, canvas, art print, mug, magnet, cards, etc.) None of them are available to download.

The Glitz and Glamour Triptych is made up of A: HoloShi; B: DiscoRo; and C: Purple Pouf and they are all named for three lovely and wonderful ladies in my life. To read more about them, please click this photo to go to my deviantArt page.

I hope you enjoyed seeing these photos, which I’ve had to sit on for a while. The absence of internet at our home has put a severe halt to how often I can share. I also have to choose which items seem the most important to share first. I’ve tried to upload my items in the order in which they were created but this set, I felt, needed to be grouped thus. I’ve been uploading current works as I complete them since we’re now able to go to the library on a somewhat regular basis. I thank you for taking the time to stop by and check out my work and for your kind words and encouragement, which seem to come when I most need them. Thanks again!

Imperficles and Ident

50s Mini

What a nifty piece of history!

re:retro

Minolta Mini folding slide projectorMinolta ‘Mini’ folding slide projector
made in Japan, c.1950s

Another Mini projector! The first was a Hanimex, made in Australia, and now this Minolta from Japan- both made in same time period. The projector is tiny but with the push of a metal button it folds out to form a projector with a suitable focal length; what a marvel of 50s engineering

The Mini comes with its own funky white vinyl bag [black piping, metal zip, internal compartments for all the bits] a dual slide changer AND an ‘Autochanger’ and is excellent working condition. The Autochanger allows you to stack a number of 35mm slides on both sides so one needed hold up the slide-show too long.

The lens is 1:2.5, f=7.5mm, and it runs on 200-240 V, AC/DC. The current bulb is still working, and I have researched replacement bulbs: a $10 CDS 100 watt, 115-120 volt bulb will…

Torn

Whisper not
Your Love for me,
In Shades and Shadows
Tempting Darkness,
Speak not in
Whispers too soft
To Hear,
Or in Brazen tones
Comprised
Of Starkness,
Kiss this Patience
With Tenderest Mercy,
For All
These Eyes have Seen,
For All
This Heart has born,
Spin with me
In Dizzy Splendor,
Before
The Night’s Revelry
Is Torn.
