In addition to all the Duck Stamp activities & visiting my mom, I really went wild in the most debauched Vegas way & that is smooshing pennies ALL over that town. Here’s where they’re from. 
In Las Vegas:
Springs Preserve
MGM Grand (The CSI Experience)
New York, New York
Neon Museum
The Excalibur (Dick’s Last Resort)
Nevada State Museum
Acrylic Tank Manufacturing
Downtown Container Park

In Laughlin:
Tropicana
Avi Resort & Casio
Golden Nugget

Recently did a painting of this & I wish I had better reference to what stuff was where before I made it.

I had to wait to say anything about it until I got it in my clutches, but I now own an original Elizabeth Olds painting. “The Watchful Eye” from 1954, gouache on paper (probably washi.) Safely seatbelted for the ride home & because of my sweet score, in my smuggy buggy. #elizabetholds #gouache #painting #original #1954 #thewatchfuleye #boats #sea #5004gallery #driftwood #washi #japanesepaper #smuggybuggy #boatsboatsboats
Haven’t rode my scooter since parking it Wednesday night & discovered it only took those 2 days for a spider to use it to build a giant web across it & stretching all the way to the garage roof.

Hit 500 miles tonight since I started riding my scooter.

That would be my Duck Stamp entry at the main USPS loading dock earlier today. Tracking says it left the St. Paul regional facility an hour ago.

Almost every time I sit down to paint, Susan likes to lay down next to me & calmly hangs out there, mostly not getting in the way unless you need the iridescent bronze.

This year’s Duck Stamp entry was going to be one of those boundary-pushing concepts that would open up a whole new vista of being accused of cheating. I got thermochromic pigments that go from color to clear once they hit 71° Fahrenheit & mixed them with gel medium to turn into (sort of) acrylic paint. First, I painted the base layer painting then made a 2nd version of the same scene, much more colorful version & the opposite gender of the base duck. After the first layer was done,I had to line up a printout of the second layer & use carbon paper to transfer the design. Since I can’t have the marks showing through when the colors disappear, I bought UV pens to trace over the carbon paper lines & erase those, then use a blacklight while painting. I then got both regular ice to chill the paints & dry ice to make the Masonite cold while blasting the air conditioner.

I said “going to”, because things didn’t quite shake out like that. Just can’t get things cold enough to get the colors show up & with 2 weeks left, is just to tough to pull this off & get it up to a standard I’m satisfied with. Oh, I also don’t know what the temperature will be at the contest, so layer number 2 may not even show up there. Throwing in the towel on the original idea. May give it another shot if I can do this when the outdoor temp is like 40° & do it out there.

There, now I’m up to 3 scooters (the “new” ones will be cannibalized for the first.) #ch80 #ch150d #hondaelite #hondaelitedeluxe #hondaelite150 #salvage #parts #title #illinois #roadtrip #eveninginsomerset #wisconsin
I wonder if “eating” was the polite, 19th century way of putting it.

Guess who lost the keys for his storage locker? It’s your lucky day, because now it’s a collector’s item!

Priced to sell! Although it looks like garbage, this piece of history successfully secured all sorts of Rob McBroom art for over a decade! BONUS: Will throw in keys if they are ever found!

Proof image sent by the manufacturer & that is the actual size of the finished project. Probably going to delete all the images of this piece because the end result is well...in a legal gray area.
