Select ArtWork by @FrankCunhaIIIPosted: June 19, 2011 | |
I wanted to take some time to reflect on some of the recent artwork I have created since New Year’s Day 2011 starting with First Self-Portraits of the New Year which led to my collaboration with friend and poet Carl Watts: “Looking at Life Behind the Eye of the Universe.”
Below is a video pictorial of some of my current artwork. I hope you enjoy viewing it as much as I did preparing it.
The summer solstice occurs exactly when the Earth’s axial tilt is most inclined towards the sun at its maximum of 23° 26′. Though the summer solstice is an instant in time, the term is also colloquially used like Midsummer to refer to the day on which it occurs. Except in the polar regions (where daylight is continuous for many months during the spring and summer), the day on which the summer solstice occurs is the day of the year with the longest period of daylight. Thus the seasonal significance of the Summer solstice is in the reversal of the gradual shortening of nights and lengthening of days. The summer solstice occurs in June in the Northern Hemisphere and in December in the Southern Hemisphere.
