Today I had the pleasure of making genuine ultramarine blue oil paint. The pigment, powdered lapis lazuli, creates one of the most sought after blue paints in all of art history. It is a paint that Vermeer used extensively.
While I’m not going to share the paint (it’s expensive!), I will share these nearly pornographic photos of the the paint-making process.
I can’t remember the last time I was as happy as I was in a very similar experience this weekend. This was such a beautiful and comfortable and happy moment. And I couldn’t think about any other place or person I would want to share it with.
if you ever have to watch one american football game please watch the lions/eagles game going on right now. they’re playing in 7/8 inches of snow and they’re not allowed to clear the snow off the field
My uncle has been posting pictures since the start of the game guys you don’t understand this is hilarious
the lions fumbled six times in the first 18 minutes and are winning
I don’t ever watch football but this amuses me.
Dude do you know how intense this is? We haven’t had snow like this in philly in like 3 years so they don’t get to practice in it, unlike the Patriots who are pros in the snow. I wish I had time to watch the game
