His only job - Painting the pinstripes on Rolls Royces - 12 Jul 2015 22:27

Tags:

[[html]]That's his job and his alone. A former village sign painter he now paints coach stripes, as they're properly called, on Rolls-Royce cars at the company's Goodwood, England factory. His job is the last step in the manufacturing process and if he messes up that line… He just can't mess up that line. There is no eraser that will fix it. The paint has special properties that instantly bond it to the underlying car paint. <br><br>That's serious pressure, so the proper mental state is important. <br><br>"This is just another car to me," he said. "If you start worrying about who owns them or where it's going, it'll play with your mind. Then you'll never do it. You just got to be able to learn to shut off and do what you need to do." <br><br>He rarely takes time off because it would cause him to lose his focus. <br><br>"Weekends are bad enough," he said, "because now I have to refocus and I have come back into it again." <br><br>When there's time off at the factory — when the the plant's being retooled to build a new model, for instance — Court usually travels to various parts of the world to paint customers' cars or to display his skills in public exhibitions. <br><br><object width="400" height="241"><param name="movie" value="http://www.youtube.com/v/X86uAWWZHi0&hl=en_US&fs=1&"></param><param name="allowFullScreen" value="true"></param><param name="allowscriptaccess" value="always"></param><embed src="http://www.youtube.com/v/X86uAWWZHi0&hl=en_US&fs=1&" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" allowscriptaccess="always" allowfullscreen="true" width="400" height="241"></embed></object><br><br>Tall and burly with a thick, rolling accent, Court looks and sounds like just the sort of man who you could imagine painting English pub signs. That's what he used to do before he came here. He applied for the the Rolls-Royce job as soon as he heard the automaker would open a factory in his rural village in 2003. <br><br>"For me, it was just adapting a skill that I already had to a technique for doing six meters of car," he said. <br><br>Six meters is about 20 feet — the length of a roughly $500,000 Rolls-Royce Phantom. <br><br>Photos - Cool cars from the Geneva Motor Show <br><br><img src="http://www.allartclassic.com/img/author_pictures/oil-painting-11.jpg" width="364" /><br><br>A skill like Court's wasn't easy to find. He was flown to Germany to meet with Ian Cameron, the man BMW had hired to head up Rolls-Royce design. BMW had bought the Rolls brand a few years earlier. Cameron showed him a perfect hand-painted coach line. <br><br>"It was a case of 'Can you do that?'" Court recalled. "Well, I'm a cocky Englishman. I can do anything." <br><br><img src="http://i2.cdn.turner.com/money/dam/assets/150430104113-rolls-royce-pinstriper-780x439.jpg" width="780" height="439" alt="Rolls-Royce pinstriper" border="0" />Former sign painter Mark Court now paints the coach stripes on Rolls-Royce cars at the automaker's Goodwood, England, factory.<br><br>From there, Court was sent to BMW's motorcycle factory, the only part of the company, at that time, that did hand-painted lines. He perfected his craft painting gas tanks and fairings, the shell that goes over the frame of some racing-style motorcycles. <br><br>Court uses squirrel hair brushes that he trims himself to just the right shape. He powders his fingers so they slide easily across the car's smooth painted surface as he follows a guide line made from tape. The tape doesn't mask the edge of the line, it's purely a guide from which he keeps a set distance. <br><br>His job involves much more than just straight lines, though. Customers also request a variety of custom designs including flowers, horse heads, various abstract shapes and, of course, their initials. He spent hours painting lines and flowers on Rolls-Royce's Serenity show car that was unveiled at the Geneva Motor Show this year. <br><br>He's still trying to find an apprentice to someday take his place. So far two apprentices have dropped out. One was his own son, who decided to go to work in Rolls-Royce's wood shop, instead. <br><br>"Time marches on," Court said. "I ain't getting no younger. Someones got to continue." <br><br>Related: Inside Ferrari's hybrid supercar - LaFerrari <br><br>Related: Ultra-luxury SUVs on the way <br><br><img src="http://www.bhmpics.com/download/swan_lake_painting-1920x1080.jpg" width="294" /><br><br>Related: 9 up-and-coming collectible cars <br><br>CNNMoney (New York) April 30, 2015: 5:19 PM ET <br><br><a href='http://money.cnn.com/2015/04/30/autos/rolls-royce-stripe-painter/'>http://money.cnn.com/2015/04/30/autos/rolls-royce-stripe-painter/</a><br><br><object width="400" height="241"><param name="movie" value="http://www.youtube.com/v/4gyl4KfDAYM&hl=en_US&fs=1&"></param><param name="allowFullScreen" value="true"></param><param name="allowscriptaccess" value="always"></param><embed src="http://www.youtube.com/v/4gyl4KfDAYM&hl=en_US&fs=1&" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" allowscriptaccess="always" allowfullscreen="true" width="400" height="241"></embed></object><br><br>[[/html]] - Comments: 0

[[html]]Collage with Acrylics<br><br>Acrylic paint is an excellent adhesive and can be used for binding papers, fabrics, sand, and other material to the support; it serves as a main bonding element in collages.<br><br><img src="http://s10.postimage.org/5j4irslzd/painting_4.jpg" width="286" /><br><br>Acrylic gels or texture paste can be used to stick larger objects.<br><br>When making a collage, lightweight objects are obviously best, because they are easier to glue in a permanent way. If the object is quite heavy, you may need extra support, like nails or wires.<br><br>Painting with Sandpaper, Wire Brushes, Cloth, and Plastic Wrap<br><br>Many materials, tools, and techniques can be used to obtain the most creative textures on an acrylic painting, your imagination is the limit for what you can use. Some of the things I like to use are:<br><br><object width="400" height="241"><param name="movie" value="http://www.youtube.com/v/X86uAWWZHi0&hl=en_US&fs=1&"></param><param name="allowFullScreen" value="true"></param><param name="allowscriptaccess" value="always"></param><embed src="http://www.youtube.com/v/X86uAWWZHi0&hl=en_US&fs=1&" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" allowscriptaccess="always" allowfullscreen="true" width="400" height="241"></embed></object><br><br>- Sandpaper. Once a layer of paint is dry, you can use sandpaper to distress the paint and uncover an earlier layer. If sanding large areas, spray with water and use water resistant sandpaper, in order to minimize the particles of paint flying around. (Not the best thing to breathe.)<br><br>- Wire brushes, pot scrapers, and other abrasive tools, can produce interesting effect both on wet or dry paint layers. Whether you want to create texture, partially reveal a background layer of paint, or produce a distress look, you can really get creative finding a scratchy tool to use.<br><br><img src="http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/6/6b/%27Buffalo_Hunt_on_the_Southwestern_Prairies%27%2C_oil_on_canvas_painting_by_John_Mix_Stanley%2C_1845%2C_Smithsonian_American_Art_Museum_%28Washington_D._C.%29.jpg" width="322" /><br><br>- Cloth and plastic wrap can be used to produce unique textures in your painting. <br><br>Examples:<br><br><img src="http://www.deshow.net/d/file/cartoon/2008-10/howard-fogg-oil-painting-167-24.jpg" width="356" /><br><br>Rub textured cloth on wet paint to create texture.<br><br>Press gauze or stings into wet paint and, after it dries, pull it out.<br><br><object width="400" height="241"><param name="movie" value="http://www.youtube.com/v/X86uAWWZHi0&hl=en_US&fs=1&"></param><param name="allowFullScreen" value="true"></param><param name="allowscriptaccess" value="always"></param><embed src="http://www.youtube.com/v/X86uAWWZHi0&hl=en_US&fs=1&" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" allowscriptaccess="always" allowfullscreen="true" width="400" height="241"></embed></object><br><br>Scrunch a piece of plastic wrap in your hands, unfold it loosely and gently tap it down onto wet paint, keeping the wrinkles.

Chiropractor Rogers Mn | The Benefits Of Chiropractic Massage - 12 Jul 2015 16:27

Tags:

[[html]]By: <br><br>Chris Tomshack<br><br><img src="http://www.drjaychiropractic.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/08/Chiropractor.jpg" width="345" /><br><br>Chiropractic massage is an alternative therapy involving both scientific and holistic medicine through a focus on nervous system and musculoskeletal health along with physical adjustments of the spine. With the use of deep tissue massage, greater relaxation can occur, which allows the chiropractor to better adjust dysfunctions and subluxations, or partial dislocations, of spinal joints. <br><br>The chiropractor's focus is on the symbiotic relationship between the spine, ligaments, joints and muscles, including environmental and emotional factors that affect health. Many chiropractors believe there is a strong, symbiotic link between physical health and the body's structural alignment, and they point to a correlation between spinal alignment and conditions such as migraines, allergies, and back pain. Used in conjunction with spinal adjustments, chiropractic massage seeks to relieve tension and cramping in muscles that leads to or aggravates those conditions.<br><br><object width="400" height="241"><param name="movie" value="http://www.youtube.com/v/atSUUmwPEPc&hl=en_US&fs=1&"></param><param name="allowFullScreen" value="true"></param><param name="allowscriptaccess" value="always"></param><embed src="http://www.youtube.com/v/atSUUmwPEPc&hl=en_US&fs=1&" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" allowscriptaccess="always" allowfullscreen="true" width="400" height="241"></embed></object><br><br>Numerous benefits of chiropractic massage exist. Not only does it help relax you, but there are also benefits such as stress relief and improved circulation from specialized and focused chiropractic massage. The benefits are mental and emotional as well as physical, offering both body and mind release from pain and pressure. <br><br>In the chiropractic field, massage is a tool used to prevent muscle spasms and cramping that might result from strenuous adjustments. In addition, a relaxed body during the session will not suffer as much soreness during and after the session as will a tense one. Many chiropractors either employ massage therapists or are massage therapists themselves. A great number of chiropractors offer massage along with physical adjustments and other forms of therapy, knowing that a massage given prior to the chiropractic session helps prepare your body. A post-session massage supports the chiropractor's adjustments, and helps you relax.<br><br>Though you may be glad to visit your chiropractor, the anticipation of manual realignment may create nervousness. Massage prior to the session helps you handle any anxiety about the session to come. Increasing relaxation before the procedure has a number of chiropractic benefits. A relaxed body is easier for your chiropractor to manipulate, allowing your session to be more effective. Massage can reduce blood pressure, which also helps your session be more effectual. After the realignment, massage removes any residual tension from the manipulation. Additionally, stress or tension could intensify any discomfort caused from spinal misalignment. Regular massage may be proactive in dealing with this potential discomfort or pain.<br><br>In chiropractic massage, chiropractors concentrate on the core support muscles of your back and torso, seeking to loosen muscles and release tension. Another aim of the massage is to increase lymph flow, which aids the body in metabolic waste elimination. The benefit of this is enhanced immune system function. Many patients also tell of improved sleep patterns and mental acuity with regular massage treatment.<br><br>Often, the tenseness of muscles contributes to poor alignment. Since muscles pull on the bones, this can lead to joint displacement or ligament strain that causes discomfort and pain. This is especially true of the spine. If your muscles are still tight and pulling on your bones, your spine will not stay readjusted for long. Chiropractic massage can remedy this unfortunate situation; manipulating muscles and soft connective tissues helps unlock them. Loosened muscles will pull less on your bones, resulting in less structural displacement and discomfort. The adjustments that the chiropractor made will stay in place. Your body will settle into its new, proper alignment and heal faster. <br><br>The benefits, then, of chiropractic massage are plentiful. If you feel that you could benefit from chiropractic massage in addition to your usual treatment and adjustments, be sure to check with your chiropractor or other chiropractors in your area to see if any offer massage therapy.<br><br>About the Author:<br><br>http://HealthSourceofRogers.com HealthSource would like to present you with a limited time complimentary consultation, a $175.00 value.

His Most Famous Painting (Harlequin's Carnival) - 12 Jul 2015 16:10

Tags:

[[html]]<object width="400" height="241"><param name="movie" value="http://www.youtube.com/v/4gyl4KfDAYM&hl=en_US&fs=1&"></param><param name="allowFullScreen" value="true"></param><param name="allowscriptaccess" value="always"></param><embed src="http://www.youtube.com/v/4gyl4KfDAYM&hl=en_US&fs=1&" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" allowscriptaccess="always" allowfullscreen="true" width="400" height="241"></embed></object><br><br>The acclaimed painting, "Harlequin's Carnival (Spanish: Le Carnaval d'Arlequin)," interpreted as an elucidation of the human subconscious mind, was a masterpiece by the famous Spanish painter, sculptor, and ceramist Joan Miro (1893-1983). Modest and secluded in nature, Joan was the son of an affluent Goldsmith. Created during 1924-25, "Harlequin's Carnival" measures 66cm x 93 cm. This oil painting on canvas, conceived in France, well represents 'Surrealism,' the preferred style of the painter. Being magnificently unconventional, "Harlequin's Carnival" has ever attracted criticism from the art experts for not conforming to the customary eloquence of artistry.<br><br><img src="http://www.deshow.net/d/file/cartoon/2009-05/josephine-wall-oil-painting-569-6.jpg" width="384" /><br><br><img src="http://www.allartclassic.com/img/author_pictures/oil-painting-11.jpg" width="364" /><br><br><object width="400" height="241"><param name="movie" value="http://www.youtube.com/v/Ik2gwIAgS1U&hl=en_US&fs=1&"></param><param name="allowFullScreen" value="true"></param><param name="allowscriptaccess" value="always"></param><embed src="http://www.youtube.com/v/Ik2gwIAgS1U&hl=en_US&fs=1&" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" allowscriptaccess="always" allowfullscreen="true" width="400" height="241"></embed></object><br><br>The carnival shown in "Harlequin's Carnival" is a merry making festival, a period of revelry that concludes before the Ash Wednesday in the Christian Calendar. The end of the carnival marks the beginning of the season of LENT, commemorating the Passion of Christ through individual sacrifices for the next forty days. At the carnival, people celebrate by disguising themselves into funny characters and objects called floats and move around the place, entertaining others, and building a pleasant, festive ambience. Joan Miro depicts many enthusiastic and colorful characters in "Harlequin's Carnival" as an unprecedented collection, with most of the images and shapes created probably with a frolicsome frame of mind.<br><br>The central character of the painting, Harlequin, is a person who wears a mask or disguise for fun. The painting brings forth the hidden expression of a man imagining himself amongst an entertaining and joyfully spirited environment. Some of the other prominent characters of "Harlequin's Carnival" are two cats sharing the same piece of wool for play and an inquisitive sun peeping through the window. There are similar looking musical notes flowing next to a violin. A yellow masked tall man is shown at the centre and a man disguised as a guitar, seen next to him. The feet of this man are quite visible, as he stands next to the dice, where a busy insect is seated. There is a ladder on the left of the painting and atop are two human shapes swaying in the gentle breeze, enjoying themselves in an imaginative trapeze form. A man with two colored, red and blue, face with a long moustache is shown and you can also see a fish on the table. Several other unidentified images are there in "Harlequin's Carnival," as a part of the festival mood.<br><br><img src="http://twilightreadings.files.wordpress.com/2011/02/img_0413.jpg" width="349" /><br><br><object width="400" height="241"><param name="movie" value="http://www.youtube.com/v/FF5aAbCbLLk&hl=en_US&fs=1&"></param><param name="allowFullScreen" value="true"></param><param name="allowscriptaccess" value="always"></param><embed src="http://www.youtube.com/v/FF5aAbCbLLk&hl=en_US&fs=1&" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" allowscriptaccess="always" allowfullscreen="true" width="400" height="241"></embed></object><br><br>Overall, definitely Joan's painting brings about a carnival's fervor time in the viewer's mind. "Harlequin's Carnival" has been defined as "a random choice of images in an illogical arrangement." The painting currently graces Albright-Knox Art Gallery, Buffalo.<br><br><a href='http://carnival.ezinemark.com/his-most-famous-painting-harlequin-s-carnival-joan-miro-4ef9a8786e4.html'>http://carnival.ezinemark.com/his-most-famous-painting-harlequin-s-carnival-joan-miro-4ef9a8786e4.html</a><br><br>[[/html]] - Comments: 0
