Maureen Gallace

She fits all the pieces together like a tightly fitting puzzle. It makes your eye dance around looking for where it might fall apart. Hmm, interesting way of putting tension into such a tranquil scene. More of her work can be seen at the Michael Kohn Gallery.

Whimsy or serious Minimalism? I think both are a in the work of New York City artist's Kate Shepherd's work. More can be viewed at B. Krakow Gallery.

Urban Sunshine

I took a lunch time walk up to mid-town Seattle yesterday and caught this peek-a-boo blast of sunshine just on the north side of the new public library. The scene felt very Hopper-like, but on an incline. Too bad the sun isn't persisting today.

Karen Kosoglad

I first came across this Seattle artist's work at Gallery 110. Interestingly she also does pet portraits, you can see more of both types of work here.

The park just north of the office is being clear cut in the name of civic improvement. It's odd to hear chainsaws and feel the thud of felled trees while sitting at my desk. With the original Skid Row just a couple blocks further north it's an interesting juxtaposition of yesteryear against today.

Why the "normal distribution" is important.

"The distribution of many test statistics is normal or follows some form that can be derived from the normal distribution. In this sense, philosophically speaking, the Normal distribution represents one of the empirically verified elementary "truths about the general nature of reality," and its status can be compared to the one of fundamental laws of natural sciences."

Lunchtime Exploration

Spring time is beginning to show itself here in Seattle. Sunny weather beckons us to get the hell out of our offices. I tagged along with JimmiJam yesterday while he was photographing the SoDo area and we came across this intriguing building renovation.
