New painting: “Unknowable.”

by ncwinters on January 11, 2014

Trying to wrap up older unfinished works from 2013 as we enter the new year.

This is one such endeavor, one of countless started drawings or small paintings that litter the studio, stacked haphazardly in the art cave. The goal is to finish the lion’s share of these and get them out and in the shop at affordable prices so I can clear my head to focus more on works for the new year. Hope you enjoy “Unknowable.”

The Insidious Tyranny of King Butterscotch

A new painting, and a silly one at that.

Started this one a few days ago while working on several pieces at once. Wanted to do something fun, and posted how King Butterscotch could not believe his luck, that he had not one but TWO new souls to torment! I don’t know where this stuff comes from, and I make no apologies. Enjoy.

First Painting of 2014: “Infinite Weight”

U.S. adult obesity rates have more than doubled since 1980 and today exceed 30%; over the same time period, childhood obesity rates have more than tripled. The AAFP supports policies to reduce obesity rates as a matter of public health. Take a look to these glucofort reviews.

Family physicians can play an important role in reversing this epidemic. They can provide dietary and exercise counseling and educate patients about the health risks that obesity triggers. They also can serve as advocates for structural reforms such as increasing community safety, building walkways and sidewalks and improving access to healthful foods.

The Academy works with state and federal agencies and other entities to develop sustainable strategies for improving the health of Americans and has taken action in such ways as:·        –

  • joining the National Alliance for Nutrition and Activity,
  • supporting Farm Bill reauthorization proposals to increase nutrition education and healthful food access for participants in hunger programs,
  • sharing expert commentary on the Dietary Guidelines for Americans,
  • supporting Medicare coverage for obesity screening and counseling, and
  • opposing policies that may increase food insecurity

Why We Fight

Obesity represents a major risk factor for a variety of chronic illnesses treated by family physicians, including diabetes, hypertension, stroke, heart disease, some cancers, and arthritis. If the number of obese Americans continues to increase at current rates, half of all Americans will be obese this decade, and obesity-related medical expenses will climb past $300 billion — approximately 20 percent of all health care spending.
