It's Raining Low Chucks!

8"x12" oil on canvas (each) I was thinking of taking a couple weeks off from posting, so I thought I would share the last two Low Chuck Converse paintings with you in one "Compliments of the Season" email. In my continuing attempt to disseminate not only useful, but also very valuable information, I would like to share the following: *"As an academic exercise in energy transformation, a research group at the American Physical Society calculated how loudly, and for how long, a person would have to shout at a quarter liter of coffee to bring it to 122 degrees Fahrenheit. The answer: 80 decibels of screaming—about the noise level of a running garbage disposal—applied for precisely 1 year, 7 months, 26 days, 20 hours, 26 minutes and 40 seconds." Being an avid coffee drinker myself and having been not only a witness to, but also a victim of a coffee machine breakdown, this seems completely reasonable to me.
