Posting For Posterity

I have not been successful in leading people to this blog. I think it gets about 1 or 2 visits per week. So I am starting to question why I keep doing this. Am I just hoping that some future generation will find there way here and that wordpress will still be in business hosting this for free?

Memories of “Nam”

  • 3362, Global Gradient
  • 3363, Sector
  • 3364, Tri-Sector

I am not very proud of my Vietnam service record. I went where I was assigned without any political or social perspective of the situation. I felt that my assignment was too protected to put myself into the same category of vets who were more in harms way. I had no risk of dealing with agent orange or ptsd.  My riskiest times were a couple dark nights of guard duty on the perimeter of the largest Army post in country ( Long Binh) and a few helicopter rides and jeep rides to visit some outposts. But when trying to conjure up a name for the first painting above, Vietnam came to mind.

Haste Makes Waste

The upper right painting is called “Haste Makes Waste” and is my favorite of the day followed by the black and white image with hints of color titled “Hint of Heaven“. Here are the rest of the titles.

  • 3351, Lavender Diamonds
  • 3352, Power Play
  • 3353, Haste Makes Waste
  • 3354, Heaven and Earth
  • 3355, Hint of Heaven
  • 3356, Power Hungry
  • 3357, Loins
  • 3358, Post Climax

A Couple New Series, Mirrored and As Yet Untitled

You can probably tell the ones in blue are in the Mirrored Series. I have not yet come up with a series name for the others. Here are the titles:

  • 3337, Tunnels End
  • 3338, Dragon Pig Pile
  • 3339, Dragon Sketch
  • 3340, Become Not Afraid
  • 3341, Following The Thread
  • 3342, Holding Together
  • 3343, Hind Sight
  • 3344, Shared Experience

I don’t like the way they look in miniature. But full screen they pass my internal junk filter. You can see them full screen at www.risingrims.com if you are reading this within a week of 9/15/2017. I will move them to the Current gallery next week.
