Rocket's Red Glare February 7, 2012

One of my art students, Meggi McKenzie, took this photo the other day, North of Santa Barbara.  

My philosophy is that because they are open, and looking out over the ledge most of the time, Artists tend to find themselves in situations where they are the witness to events: such as the Artist, Collin Campbell Cooper being on board the S.S. Carpathia when it rescued survivors from the Titanic.  I've been lucky enough to see the original paintings done on location during the rescue, and they are a site to behold.

In this case, Doreen caught the rocket in mid flight as it was heading somewhere, "out there".

It's kinda romantic to look at, unless it is an ICBM  from Vandenberg Air Force Base; heading toward China, Korea, Russia, beginning World War III.

If it was the last day on the Earth as we know it, I'd want to go out painting...
