Played around with watercolor years ago, I think these pics I made came out pretty good.   Sorry if the scans are a little blurry.

Agua Caliente Cultural Museum April 5, 2012

Went to the Agua Caliente Cultural Museum it was smaller than I expected, but they are raising funds to build a new 110,000 sq. foot museum facility in the heart of Palm Springs.  They did have some nice baskets and artifacts belonging to the Cahuilla people.

                                     

                                        

The photos below were from a Heritage building next door.

Had a wonderful vacation in Palm Springs, CA.  Took some great pics of  the local flora and a few Indian artifacts.

These pics were taken at the Moorten Botanical Gardens on South Palm Canyon Drive.

Primitive Slings March 5, 2012

The Sling was Early mans first projectile weapon.  I’ve read that in skilled hands a projectile can be slung over 1500 feet at speeds exceeding 250 miles per hour.  The sling is still widely used in South America and the Middle East.  Remember the Biblical story of David and Goliath.   For hunting, slings are best used on birds and small animals.  For me it is used in hunting the elusive cardboard box.
