Just take a look at the watercolor work of SIX year old Kieron Williamson. If I didn't know better I would have sworn these were by Monet. His mastery of color and shape makes all would be artists like myself want to cry. And just look at that use of perspective. WOW. I believe that there is a part of the right brain that either develops or doesn't develop in people. I can see the image in my head but I am unable to translate it to the paper despite all the artist classes and summer workshops I have attended. To have found such a skill at such a young age pretty much sets the path for this kid's entire life. I hope he sells a ton of paintings and gains all the fame that is his due. In the article they mention that he sent paintings to the Queen and Prince Charles to ask for their patronage. Now that would be a great use of their money. Aristocrats have always funded the arts and particular artists. Without such patrons the world would have been robbed of some of its greatest works. Cool stuff. Did I mention that he is only SIX?
If you need any further proof of this boy's talents I show you a watercolour painting by the GOD of impressionist painting, Claude Monet. What do you say now bitches?
I forever stand vigilant to protect this planet from the myriad of forces that are always against us. Be it the octopus, zombies, aliens or the robots my team of human agents, and our feline allies, circle the globe in a never ending struggle for human freedom.
I learn all I can on every subject that interests me. I especially enjoy ancient history because in the past there are valuable lessons to be found. Also, if I ever get my time machine to work properly, it would be good to know a bit about possible destinations and what to expect when I get there.
I greatly appreciate beautiful design. Be it manufactured or found naturally I am fascinated by the process of invention. I am attracted to the unique, the strange, the haunted. I like to share what I find on this blog.
And not let us forget the 'Cephalopod Menace' who, if allowed to, would wrap their tentacles around all that is good and pure in this life and crush it until it remained no more. They are creatures of pure spite. Hate is all they know. Death is all they do. They are our most ruthless and determined enemy.
So we fight. Selena has the celebrity contacts, the cat is ruthless and without pity, Roosevelt's ghost has the experience and I do the wetwork.
Fighting for the future of the planet doesn't have to be a chore, however. We can take the time to appreciate all that is cool in this world even as we cut the octopus into bite sized chunks.
This is the reason there has always been and must forever be, a Cave of Cool. Be sure to wipe your feet before you enter.
