George Bush paintings....ummmmmmmm

When he first showed his painting of his feet in the bathtub I was like ok, naive, someone who doesnít really know how to draw and is trying to paint, ok, whatever. Then not too much later, a couple months or so, weíre seeing him executing portraits of presidents, pets....etc. I really have to question if these are really his work. I have studied drawing and painting myself, have spent years going to life drawing classes and spent a couple years painting en plein air. I just donít see how someone jumps from an extremely naive painting ability to rather sophisticated portraits, that show a keen level of drawing ability as well as style, and a knowledge of how values work in a painting. The guy is not that smart. And heís a big ass liar, or as he would say, untruth. My guess is that he has someone doing the drawing, mixing the colors/values, and then he puts the actual paint on. Thereís just no way otherwise, imho. Idk, just something that has bothered me and I recently watched a video on some news show about his paintings is why Iím bringing this up.

How I wear a mask at the dentist

Early on in the pandemic I had a terrible toothache. I had no choice to not go. I just wanted to share how I wear a mask at the dentist office in case some of you are afraid to go to the dentist. It sounds absurd, maybe looks absurd, but works for me and I feel safe going to the dentist this way. Basically when the hygienist is ready to begin, I raise my mask (kn95) upwards, so the lower part of the mask is covering over the nose, and the upper part is covering the eyes. It feels like itís still a good seal too. My mouth is exposed and open so the hygienist can do the cleaning, and I breathe in and out through nose only. Then when they are finished I lower the mask back down. If you have been avoiding the dentist because of covid, and this doesnít sound too absurd and want to give it a try, you can test it out at home. The added benefit is the eyes are covered from the bright dentist chair light. I asked my hygienist if anyone else does this but the answer was no. Just me. But they are totally on board with it and it doesnít interfere with the cleaning. I doubt that I would go to the dentist had I not come up with this strategy. Itís so easy and simple. I donít care what it must look like either. Itís keeping me safe. And them too.
