Day 197: Primary Day
Sunny and pleasant in Chaumont, NY today. It is also primary day, when voters select candidates for election in November. I am a registered independent, therefor, here in NY state, I cannot participate in any of the primaries. I mlive in NY's 23rd congressional district. Voters in the republican primary will choose between Doug Hoffman and Matt Doheny. Not that what I write hear will have any bearing on anything, if I coulod vote I would cast mine for Hoffman. Anyhow, the polls close at 9:00pm and because of that I will be in the Syracuse area this evening covering one of the local primarys.
This is a painting titled View of Horse Island, held by it's creator, Tom Bintz, also known as Captain Honk. It's a mixed media piece. It consists of a background painted on a section of the hull of an old wooden boat. He then has glued on a variety of odds and ends and scraps of things to create a busy nautical scene. I like this piece a lot.
