Free Online Image Editing- and it’s good.

20 Feb

Sumo Paint is a new (at least for me) online image editing tool that looks a feels a lot like Photoshop. If you never have a need to use it (i.e. you already have CS4) I would still give this a look, it’s pretty impressive for a web tool. Brushes, layers, filters, wand tools, cropping, its all there.

This sounds like the most interesting, romantic opportunity that I have seen in quite awhile. I can see myself running in circles, singing to myself (or whoever was lucky to come with me) and basically soaking up the gorgeous space with no one else around. Spectacular!

Paint + Dancing = FREEDOM!

6 Jun

Check out the coolest activity I think I have ever heard of. Grab your dancing shoes, and your paint brush, and get ready to groove.

From Matt Jones, meetup coordinator:

“”Welcome to The NYC Paint Dancing Group! Paint Dancing is a new venue created solely for the purpose of openly expressing yourself for fun in 2 different mediums – AT ONCE!

That’s Right! PAINT and DANCING (at the same time) in private art studios and various venues located throughout NYC.

We supply the non-toxic paint, brushed and paper! All you need is your paint clothes (and shoes) and you are ready to try PAINT DANCING!

Paint Dancing is a safe, supportive and fun environment to express yourself. The best news is; you don’t need to know how to paint or dance to participate!

Paint Dancing was recently covered by Seattle’s NBC affiliate King 5 – Evening Magazine.”


Lovely movement, cinematography, and music.

It took me three times watching this before I realized my eyes never noticed the man. He is doing a tremendous amount of supportive work and you never notice him. Damn, he is good.

Waterfalls, in NYC?

8 May

nyc waterfallsSo, apparently, as a plot to gain even more revenue from tourism, New York City will have waterfalls along the East River.

From Press Release, “The New York City Waterfalls, a major new work of public art by internationally acclaimed artist Olafur Eliasson, will be on view in New York’s East River from late June through mid-October 2008. Commissioned by Public Art Fund, the project consists of four monumental, man-made waterfalls temporarily installed at sites along the waterfront in Brooklyn, Manhattan, and Governors Island.” Here is their site

Personally, I think adding a gorgeous flow of water anywhere around the beloved bridge sounds like something I would enjoy viewing everyday on the commute home.
