Sunsport Board New Policies

The Sunsport Gardens Board of Directors has adopted new policies:

Policy adopted: "The clean-up deposit for permanent RV/trailer sites or seasonal sites occupied for six months or more is $600.

"Policy adopted: "A residential vehicle and any attached structure must be inspected by maintenance to ascertain livability (e.g.: absence of mold or leaks, structural integrety, operational utilities) prior to being transferred by sale or gift. If such vehicle/structure is not livable, it must be removed from Sunsport property at the owner's expense. Abandoned vehicles and structures will be disposed of at the previous owner's expense."

Policy adopted: Parents will sign this Supervision of Children statement, "Parents are solely responsible for the health, safety, and general welfare of their children under age 18 on Sunsport Gardens grounds."

The first 2 policies are the result of the large costs of dealing with abandoned RVs and trailers. The third policy is not new except the required parental signatures for legal reasons.

Permaculture Sunsport News

New Additions!

We are introducing some Koi to several ponds to help control the over growth of floating plants and just because they are fun to watch.

They started eating the duckweed immediately. Originally we had an overgrowth of Salvinia but that has recently disappeared and has been replaced by duckweed.
The only bright spot is Salinas is not very palatable to fish where as duckweed is considered pretty tasty.
Hopefully they will survive and become long term residents of Sunsport.
Please don't feed the fish and other wildlife is very unhealthy for them. Get some koi food if you wish to feed the koi.
Lets hope in the next issue we will show a nice clear pond.

Hey What is Permaculture?

Permaculture is a philosophy of design for creating a sustainable human culture. That is, it's a way of thinking about how we set up the support systems around us: shelter, food, water, energy, society and business. Well designed permaculture systems allow us to live as a beneficial part of the ecosystems around us.

Art & Naturism.......naturist spirited art

How Spain’s Kings Hid Thousands of Nude Paintings from the Catholic Church

by Ian Shank

By the mid-17th century, a clear religious and legal consensus had emerged in Spain. Nude paintings—particularly featuring women—were not only morally suspect, but dangerous.
Jan Brueghel el Viejo and Hendrick de Clerck, Abundance and the Four Elements, 1606
Earlier, in December 1563, the Catholic clergymen who had gathered for the Council of Trent decreed that “all lasciviousness [in church artwork] shall be avoided in such ways that figures shall not be painted or adorned with a beauty exciting lust.” Even Michelangelo’s Sistine Chapel fresco of the Last Judgment fell afoul of the church, prompting some contemporary Spaniards to declare that paintings of the nude were “inventions of the devil,” could make the onlooker a “slave to lust,” and that “the finest paintings are the greatest threat: burn the best of them.” In 1640, the Spanish court went so far as to declare the creation, importation, and possession of nude paintings illegal—thereby cementing the most repressive, anti-nude legal regime in all of Europe.
Titian, Venus and Adonis
And yet, collections of the nude not only continued in Spain, but flourished. Under the tutelage of Philip II and Philip IV, the Spanish Habsburgs would come to possess the largest collection of nude paintings in Western art. “This paradox,” said Miguel Falomir Faus, director of the Museo Nacional del Prado, “is that this impressive collection of erotic paintings was not in the very liberal Amsterdam, or in Florence, but in Madrid, and the owners of this collection were the most Catholic kings in the world.”
Peter Paul Rubens, Ceres with two Nymphs,1615 - 1617l
This seemingly contradictory state of affairs has its roots in the particular significance of nudity in European art. “In the late fifteenth century, the ability to draw the nude was becoming a prerequisite for the very definition of a successful artist,” writes art historian Jill Burke. Moreover, “successful paintings and sculptures of nudes were those that provoked physical desire on the part of the viewer (who was generally assumed to be male).” Thus, even as the political climate grew increasingly antagonistic, serious patrons of the arts like Philip II and Philip IV continued to collect the best—and, by extension, most alluring—works of art.
Peter Paul Rubens, The Three Grace, 1635
This stark contrast between moral and artistic standards could put painters in a bind when it came time to actually hire a nude model. “In the end the ones who are suitable don’t want to strip,” complained one bitter artist of the 1640s, “and those who will strip would make a good model for witches.”
Francisco de Goya, The Nude Maja, ca. 1800
Far and away the most important factor in the development of the Spanish Habsburgs’ illustrious collection, however, was the genesis of the salas reservadas—cloistered, exclusive spaces scattered across a handful of royal properties for the purpose of displaying certain works separately from the rest of the collection. Though references to sequestered holdings of nude paintings in the royal collections begin to crop up as early as 1621, the first documented sala reservada appears in a 1636 inventory of the Alcázar Palace under the reign of Philip IV. The room featured nine nude paintings by Titian, and was recorded as the place “where His majesty retires after lunch.”
