A little bit of art work I did to hang in the Arts & Crafts room of the senior home I live in.
Remembering my Father, John T. Alstrom, Jr., on Veteran’s Day 2017. Served in China & Aleutian Island during WWII and in Korea where is lost a leg when he stepped on a landmine.
I made two new paintings just for Halloween. I live in a senior apartment building that has a big arts & crafts room where I like to exhibit my paintings. When I can see them hanging up in a big room, it gives me a new perspective on them. Already have new ideas for the “table’ picture, or maybe just make a new picture.
(Update: my painting on my previous blog “City of Tomorrow 2” was stolen from hanging in the arts & crafts room. Don’t know why: because they like Trump or dislike Trump? Anyway will make a new one.)
I consider most of my paintings decorative art. They brighten up and add interest to a room. At least they do that to my rooms. Not intended to give one a life-changing experience. Here are a few I’ve done lately.
On August 21st, I traveled, from Staten Island into Manhattan, to try to see the Eclipse from the High Line, because I thought that might be an interesting place to see it from. I walked the High Line from 23rd Street to 14th Street. Many other people had the same idea as me. These are a few of the photos I got. The Eclipse wasn’t too great from NYC. It looks like the moon in the sky, but actually, it is the sun being covered by the moon.
