Quarked Shiny ProjeKts

~~quark’s shinny paint job! on a quarked projekt frum scratch~~twaz a corvette to start with! believe it er not! in da’ 80’s i built quite a few of these kit cars like on t.v.show miami vice they had a couple of our cars also, we built cars for princes an rich football players like lyle alzedo etc etc.they would bring us their vette an we’d make it a ferrari…till we got sued by ferrari an shut down :(~~~

I always like my projeKts to be shiny when i give them back to the customer…


these here are a few examples of my SHINY projeKts when i have finished them….

~~~~~~ frum one kinna shiny to another kinna shiny lol ~~~~

to another!…. 🙂 ……

a shine on for many years to come some of them have been the customers gem 4-ever…



each one i have built an painted an sanded an polished has been a “Diversion, distraction and delightful detour,” in my life; sumtimes for a year er so! an it is this weeks theme for “Ooh Shiny”. jesta few of my shiny projeKts 🙂

Ooh, Shiny!

Diversions, distractions, and delightful detours


It be Elemental Sir’ Watson sayz da’ Q

It be Very Elemental Watson! there are 2 ways 2 fly er more yes indeed if ya don’t got lotsa $$$

🙂 an dats me folks lol 🙂

so quark sayz :

..an so many variables there of also …but; all different forms of the ultralights are fun to fly

well, instructor johnny moved to utah, so if ya want lessons frum him ya would have to visit salt lake area now…:(

…not as fun maybe as a powered glider but i can’t afford one they cost way to much mula…sosa i fly a raged ol’ butterfly wing

..not really though; she is in pert good shape. not many hours an lots to go as far as i am concerned, this wing will last me my lifetime ..i am sure when it comes to the ultralight trikes i fly…

~~~~~~~~~~~it’s Elemental Watson no matter how ya fly it is a different lewkin’ werld frum up dere’ @ 3 er 400 ft.



Erica v says; For this week’s challenge, explore the classical elements of earth, air, water, and fire. How do you capture something invisible like air, or the movement of water? Or, more personally, is there a place you go to feel connected to the earth?

After i land when i go flying i feel more connected to the earth in a different way! 🙂 indeeD! so!

Take a moment to explore these elements, in or out of balance, together or individually, as you pick up your camera this week.


Textures in da’ Sky when ya fly!

There is a certain texture to the air an the clouds also…..yes indeed.the air density changes a lot an also the humidity which changes the texture an creates the clouds etc etc an is evident when ya fly in the skies in an ultralight… 🙂 even the clouds have texture an the ground does also frum da’ air!

an ya can feel it when ya fly at different temperatures an speeds also…whether it is hot or cold the air density changes an so inevitably does the texture of the air i call it!…in sailplane terms when the texture is coolest is when there are thermals an the air is thick an dense an warm an rising 🙂 best days of flying ever that is .

and enjoying the different textures of ground an sky is pert awesome sometimes yes indeed i must say so myself 


~~~ if da’ texture of da’ air is jest right!


an once upon da ground an back home Q notices da’ stickbug relies on texture to climb upon! and well, when i am home alone an frazzled werkin’ in da’ garage er whatnot..well, texture is da’ name of the game an thats a whole another sketched out blog haha…some of my sketched metal photoart! frum da’ garage “grinder art” i call it !…yep it qualifies for the werd of da’ week at the photo challenge “texture” lol.

Cheers to one an all over an out frum
