All the solar lights are now here, also the blue blinking solar lights. I also bought vermillion paint to paint the bamboo poles. It is slowly coming together. van-schie.
Here are a few images the bamboo poles of my proposal. van-schie.
Today the bamboo poles arrived and now I will start to paint them. They are being painted red. Also the flagging tape is in Sault Sainte Marie, Michigan. It will arrive in North Bay next week. Things are starting to come together. van-schie. Oh yah, if you know anyone with a power ice auger have them come down to my installation on February 13th, 2010 to drill some holes in the ice.
As usual my ideas change and morph into other things. My auger project is changing slightly, but I believe for the better. I will now have more solar lights and the larger area will be divided into five creating smaller more manageable areas. Each smaller area will have 100 white solar lights, along with 300 auger holes, bamboo poles, flagging tape, and glow in the dark paint. It should be fairly interesting. That being said, the weather is presently all over the place, but it is making the prep work a bit unpredictable. Any way, enough said. If you want to participate in this project, feel free to come down on February 13 in the morning. Bring a drill and a 5/8 inch bit to put in bamboo sticks in the ice or a power ice auger to auger some of the 1500 holes. It should be a tour de force. See you soon. I’ll start posting images of solar lights and other things soon. van-schie.
Idea for WKP Kennedy's 2010 Ice Follies
I’m thinking of making a ice auger project. The idea is to drill 1500 ice fishing holes, put 1500 bamboo poles standing up beside the holes with glow in the dark paint, reflective flagging tape, and 100 flashing solar lights. It should be an interesting day making the installation. van-schie.
Just wanted to let people know that I will be participating in the WKP Kennedy Gallery’s Ice Follies in February 2010. It should be a pretty good event. I’m looking to make a fire project out on the ice of Lake Nipissing. I will put images up as the project developes. van-schie.
I will be posting images soon this week of miscellaneous paintings and drawings. I apologize for the slow progress. van-schie.
Hi everyone, I’m on the verge of going back into the studio and painting. I’ll post some pictures in the near future. Enjoy the weather. van-schie.
