Home + Mold // A common problem in Germany is finding mold in humid areas of the home. The best way to help deter mold is to allow fresh air from the outside to cross ventilate throughout the home 2x a day for 15 mins at a time. Due to the type of constructions, some of the older & even newer homes have bad wall structure that can be simply preventable (airing out + soap + water) or unless the wall itself is severely damage, then wall repairs will be needed.
The gravitational dance between two galaxies in our local neighbourhood has led to intriguing visual features in both as witnessed in this new NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope image. The tiny NGC 1510 and its colossal neighbour NGC 1512 are at the beginning of a lengthy merger, a crucial process in galaxy evolution. Despite its diminutive size, NGC 1510 has had a significant effect on NGC 1512’s structure and amount of star formation.
White skin developed in Europe only as recently as 8,000 years ago ~ Based on 83 human samples from Holocene Europe as analyzed under the 1000 Genomes Project, we now know that for the majority of the time that humans have lived in Europe, the people had dark skin, and the genes signifying light skin only appear within the past 8,000 years. This recent and relatively quick process of natural selection suggests that the traits which spread rapidly were advantageous within that environment.
I spent most of the day painting a giant commission. But when I look at these tiny pieces I am reminded how pivotal they have been in the growth of my work. When I decided to paint 100 of these in 100 days, a wonderful evolution began to take place. It truly taught me to trust in the process and be brave to make the work that was calling to be created. Never underestimate the importance of the little things that we commit ourselves to. These tiny but mighty 6 x 6 paintings are listed on my…
