2000.2002.2004



Blue says CSI New York , Yellow says CSI (Las Vegas), Clear says CSI Miami ...

CSI (Las Vegas) was created in 2000...the original setting...

CSI Miami came two years later...

CSI New York came two years after that in 2004...

Ok , so back to my point...well, I was trying to make a point, but my thesis didn't exactly match my intentions, but here goes a retry...

Art students have been clamoring to chemical varnishes that come out completely clear...

They complain that dammar varnish , made of tree resins , turns yellow...

I am an unabashed user of dammar varnish which uses oranges rather than turpentine as solvent...It is made in Canada, smells nice, & I like the way it feels...plus, I know what is in it & feel good about that...I still wear eye gear, gloves & head covering anyway...

So - I was trying to show from the three pictures, one toned blue like New York, one toned yellow like Las Vegas, & one toned bright & clear like Miami, that yellow was ok...yellow represents the original version of the show CSI, which is very successful...

Then my husband pointed out that CSI Miami is the most popular show of all three by far...

So, my point doesn't hold...People prefer the bright clear look to the yellow look...

Well, I still think using natural ingredients is better than using chemical alternatives, & will continue to produce oil paintings using dammar varnish that will yellow over time...maybe I will live longer...

Being number two isn't so bad...sigh...back to the drawing board...

p.s. my Goodyear blimp spaceship idea, my idea to fly to Mars really slow like on a cruise ship, comfort rather than speed ? Well, I discovered the word is " Zeppelin " for the aircraft I meant ... I big round comfy spaceship that could slowly travel into space while serving brunch & tanning salons, & stuff...Slow travel , like slow food , is the future for space travel...zeppelin...

p.p.s. If smoking dope dehydrates your brain & makes all those neural tubes tiny from dehydration , then if you later ate something fatty & it clogged cause your brain tubes were real small, then maybe you would have a stroke or an epileptic seizure ...possibly causing the person to be forced to continue to dehydrate their brain, in an effort to slow the passage of stuff through those tubes ? something like that...definitely an addiction...still working on this concept...
