    Yep, Laura. The revamped MOMA in NYC has quite an incredible collection of lesser known works of familiar artists.

    Cool I can still identify art! We had to do that for the big final in Art History back in my college days: identify lesser-known works by artist, style and general year it was likely done, and I drilled myself relentlessly getting ready for that test.

    Of course, the similarity of those people to the figure in "The Scream" was a bit of a giveaway. ;-)

    I'd love to get to more art museums, but it's hard to interest a 4-year-old in the idea. The last one we've been to was the Art Institute of Chicago, on one of our yearly Chicago trips without the little one.

    Hey Sweaz, have you ever seen the Nancy comic I tweaked when Bert and LT were going at it?

    That Art Renewal Centre oops sorry Center is an interesting site but a bit presumptious with its "Only by gaining a full command of the skills of the past Masters can we create the Masters of tomorrow."

    We don't create masters fellas, they either have it in them or they don't.

    TexAracana was the only reason I bought Heavy Metal magazine in the eighties.

    I think CG/real action would work.

    >Nice painting BusinessNunya but, it looks like the poor girl is trying not to sneeze.

    Tee hee. Yeah, she kinda does....though I prefer to think of her wistfully melancholy.

    "where is that Ken?"

    Cathedral Park Jazz Festival, Sunday July 16th, 2006.

    That's the St. John's Bridge in the background. A lovely setting. Renato Carranto was playing some stretched-out improvisations on his sax that really fit with doing artwork and gave me lots of inspired energy toward the end of the day. I started at 8am, washed the canvas with gesso using a large house trim paintbrush. Lots of fun all day long working on that thing. Part of the fun painting outdoors like that is the people stopping by through the day to make comments. Lots of different reactions.

    All Fun.

    One guy, probably an escaped con:

    Guy: "I stopped by a highway once to watch a guy who was painting the landscape. He seemed annoyed that I was asking him lots of questions."

    Me: (busy painting away) "yeah?"

    Guy: "Made me get an idea that artist's had a bad attitude, gave me a bad impression of 'em."

    Me: "yeah?"

    Guy: "I suppose you think I am bothering you"

    Me: "yeah, well, I am working with wet cement here and need to keep working."

    Guy leaves...

    It's not just artists that are nuts.

    Ken

    Woke up to find all this Tex business. Very flattering, you guys. It will not, fortunately, be appearing on TV, or in the movies. (An interesting side note: this has been optioned for films three different times. All options were renewed then expired unfulfilled [to my relief, since this was before 3D CGA] but they did earn
    i much
    more than Heavy Metal paid) :)

    >Hey Sweaz, have you ever seen the Nancy comic...

    Don't remember seeing it, Phos; and I think I would've remembered that.
    i Nancy
    might be the first comic strip I was able to understand!

    Shamu swims through the world's famous paintings.

    No art is safe from Shamu.

    I love this. I have a small 8x10 framed of this that i keep near my computer. i can really relate to it for some reason. the black on my pic is actually black felt. gives it a kinda raised 3dish effect. i think this is sally dali, right?

    sorry it's big. it deserves it. it's gorgeous!

    john... i think i knew that but it was late and i was googling and most of the sites i found it on were written in spanish!

    >Looks like Don Quixote to me? and as they where both spanish im asuming thats exaclty what it is?

    ya. i think it's actually called "el quixote" but then i found that image on a site that was in spanish so... :) regardless, i don't even remember where i got my copy. a garage sale, i think. all i can say is that it "speaks" to me, whatever that means.

    to me that picture says it might be dark, but there's still hope, morning is coming and dreams never really fail.

    or in the words of dori from finding nemo "just keep swimming". XD



    >santa shold be in green

    yer a bloody druid you are!!!

    i've never seen a live santa in green. i think that's his summer garb. :)
