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.
