Another look at the Maltese Falcon prop replica.
The hardest part of this sculpt was the large smooth surfaces.
The most enjoyable part was the diamonds section on the falcon's chest.
Lovely bit of in Holt Country Park today.
Vite ! L'exposition Nature de fonds dos de girafe (Archives nationales, site de Paris) se terminera lundi 18 septembre !

Standin' On The Corner In Winslow AZ - 2023 Robert N. Clinton (aka CyberShutterbug)
Here are some I took when I was in .
Bull's head by Edme Gaulle (French, 17621841). Bronze, 1819. One of a pair, formerly used as the head of a fountain at the Blanc-Manteaux market, now at no. 8, rue des Hospitalires-Saint-Gervais, 4th arrondissement of Paris (Les Marais)
Show Me How Its All My Fault
At a sculpture park that features lots of large phantastical creatures and found this Praying Mantis trying to blend in.
Ths statues around the entrance to the offices of the Fairfield Shipbuilding and Engineering Company in Govan. Sculpted by James Pittendrigh MacGillivary in 1890, they represent an Engineer on the left and a Shipwright on the right. Above these two are a pair of mermaids (not clearly visible from this angle) and the head of a Viking Sea God.
Heads are nearly done (the hair is just a test)
Odd fact for today: There are more public sculptures of elephants in Glasgow than of Scottish women.

Some sculptures from the museum of art. This small sampling across different time periods absolutely does not do the museum justice at all. Just a few that caught my eye! Will be adding alt text shortly.
I want to make sure the reaction diffusion system responds when the domain expands and contracts.
A nice one.

Supple textures meet bold hues in Sangmin Ohs elegant 'Knitted Light' series.
These are the Grey-Scott Equations:
Kim's solution involved solving a polynomial derived from rearranging the reaction so that u is in terms of v which results in a polynomial, probably to avoid the matrix inversion required by the multi-variable Newton solve. 3/n
The problem with using an implicit Diffusion solve is that it tends to knock out all of the high order frequencies, so some of the wild oscillating behavior goes away.
proposed a solution to the problem here:
The idea is to use operator splitting and Newton Solve solve the reaction equation.
As far as I know, the two that make up don't have individual names.
I like to think of this one as the more wary of the two ... always keeping an eye on you as you wander around the park
You can find the first photo in this series here:
While at Pilchuck we had a party with the "Carhartt Sparkle" theme- Jacob Wilcox and I had always wanted to mount neon on one of the tree farm logs so this ensued! The company font wasn't too hard to find, and the logo was simpler to bend than the text. Jacob bent the sparkles. Not bad for 2 hours of bending time! The served it's well with animating sparkles before selling at the student auction!

I'm taking a bit of a diversion into Reaction Diffusion. Revisiting it. I've implemented it before, but I wanted to do it right this time.
Normally reaction diffusion, at least the grey-scott variety is implemented completely explicitly, I want to do an implicit version, just because. 1/n
Sculpture at the New Mexico Governor's Mansion.
Carved sculpture by Inuvialuk artist David Ruben Piqtoukun, 2000s-20s, whose work is often inspired by ancestral stories collected by the artist.
Thank you for this day.
One of the reasons I like sculpture/public art like this is that lighting transforms the piece.

Love this little bit of public art which is currently being installed at the Firhill Basin on the Forth and Clyde Canal in the north of Glasgow.
Self-portrait of me (or was it my evil twin) and my Sony inside Polyform, a sculpture based on dichroic films in front of the human ecology school at Cornell colors were so vibrant here that for once I didn't touch the saturation knob

19th Century French Bronze of a Snake Charmer,
by Charles Arthur Bourgeois
Saint Vincent Ferrer by Giuseppe Sanmartino (1750)
A friend and I walked through the botanical gardens, and saw this interesting sculpture as part of a water feature. The time of day we passed coincidentally had the setting sun shine on it in an interesting way, making the sculpture appear silver, when it was not.
La Pieta (Ossip Zadkine, 1955-57). Painted . In the golden limestone crypt of Saint-Laurens, Les Arques, .
Another of my welded steel sculptures. Overture.
For the better part of a decade, Chicago-based artists Edwige Massart and Xavier Wynn have been creating sliced sculptural skulls full of everything from yarn and river rocks to crayon tips and sleeping pills.
