Feel over the collapse when making your messages. In magazines, something on top of the page folds up, functions much more plainly than materials that decrease in the web page. If somebody must scroll downward to view your phone or measure components, odds are pretty decent they will likely not actually look at it, significantly less simply click it.

Make sure you’re only consuming alcohol sparingly. For people beneath 65, this means you shouldn’t ingest greater than two glasses per day.

If you’re planning to consume alcohol, try consuming red wine instead – given that it’s demonstrated to advantage wellness in little doses, as opposed to dark beer or difficult liqueur.

People who have successfully handled to repay their charges and placed away a great deal of dollars inside their price savings accounts all agree – in case your objective is always to acquire charge of your personal financial situation, environment a budget, and adhering to that price range, will probably be necessary to your ability to succeed.

Muse © Catherine Rutgers 2019

I’m a devotee of abstract reality, intense color, and the unnatural nature of natural elements transformed via everyday technology. Two of my best friends are shifting skies and a fairly large-format scanner. The gardens and a wired PC mouse attached to the Mac are constant companions.

I like to take complicated things – say an array of flowers and herbs – and distill them to nothing but the colors. In a series of stripes.Color October © Catherine Rutgers 2019

Skin © Catherine Rutgers 2019I like to examine common things that have been discarded. And to make small things really big. Or vice versa. Also, I think our streets could use a lot more color. A lot more radiant color.
Wings © Catherine Rutgers 2019So these ten new pieces were recently submitted to Billboard Creative, an annual show based in Los Angeles. Not necessarily counterintuitive, but definitely demonstrably true.
Love, Cat

Yes She Does © Catherine Rutgers 2019

On Saturday, June 7, 2014, sometime in the vicinity of 3 o’clock in the afternoon, I finished scouring my stove. I had used a toothbrush, a knife, a sponge, paper towels, powdered cleanser, and vigorous elbow grease. It was as clean as clean could be. Astonishingly clean. Very ready for a portrait of domestic bliss.

That August, I published the soundless video Space Rangers. You can watch it here: Eight minutes, forty-three seconds of very much strangeness. It’s one of the oddest things I’ve ever seen.

Four years later, the “ripple” post got started. And now it’s done.
