7 Feb 2017 Eyes in the Skies (drawing and video Kerch Strait, Kerch Strait oil spill) and Mosaics

Good morning family.  How are you today?  I’m trying to get motivated without the morning coffee.  We have first world problems of running out of chocolate milk.  At our house there is no point in making the coffee if there isn’t any chocolate milk to put in it!

So yesterday I spent some time exploring “boxes to make shapes” drawing style and this is what came forth.  It came to me that the eyes should be circles peering in to a world of boxes.  This is kind of how I’ve always felt about my being in the world.  I am a round peg trying to fit into a square hole of a world but somehow I think this is exactly my purpose.  Much love, light, hope, joy, laughter, music and some enthusiastic dancing to you today!

I found this video when I was looking for a picture of eyes in the clouds.  It does not appear to have been altered – just one of those freaky things people sometimes capture when they look up into the sky.  What’s also freaky is I just went to look up where Kerch Strait is and no more than 2 hours ago a oil spill with water pollution was reported there!  May be not a coincidence I was lead on this path?

Oil leaked at Kerch Strait and caused water pollution

Oil leaked from unidentified vessel and caused water pollution at the approach to the Kerch Strait from the Black Sea. The oil spot was found and reported by the Russian cargo ship Volgobalt-242, which found the pollution during passage of the strait in evening on February 3. The oil spot had length of 500-650 m and width of 200-250 m, drifting in north direction. The environment protection procedures were activated and at the scene were dispatched hazmat teams with water cleansing equipment. The calm weather and lack of winds did not allowed of the oil stop to adrift to the shore. The clean-up operations were completed successful on the next day and the traffic through the Kerch Strait was not seriously affected.

The local authorities initiated investigation for the source of the oil leak. The vessel, which caused the water pollution was not identified, but authorities will trace and inspect all the vessels, which proceeded through the strait. According to preliminary information, the oil leak was after discharging of sludge from vessel proceeding through the strait in recent 6 hours before finding it. The official statement of Rosmorrechflot says that the water pollution did not affected the marine life and the local environment.

Kerch Strait connects the Black Sea and the Sea of Azov, separating the Kerch Peninsula of Crimea in the west from the Taman Peninsula of Russia’s Krasnodar Krai in the east. The fishing is important for the local economy, as several fish-processing plants are located on the Crimean coast.

Another example of using squares to make images is a very ancient one, Mosaics.  I’m just doing it with a fine pen versus placing millions of tiny tiles!

Roman Mosaics

Roman mosaics were a common feature of private homes and public buildings across the empire from Africa to Antioch. Not only are mosaics beautiful works of art in themselves but they are also an invaluable record of such everyday items as clothes, food, tools, weapons, flora and fauna. They also reveal much about Roman activities like gladiator contests, sports, agriculture, hunting and sometimes they even capture the Romans themselves in detailed and realistic portraits.
