I think I found one of yours the other day, Frank. My wife and I hit a couple thrift stores every other week looking for picture frames. I bought a beautiful 16X20 frame for $2 that had one of those pictures it it - thrown and dribbled paint. Should have taken a picture of it and posted it to see if you could identify, but I heard the dumpster being picked up about two hours ago.

MULE.
In college we were required to take an art course. I don't remember learning anything. The instructor was kind of a free-wheeler who would put a sheet of paper in front of you and tell you to go ahead and create a "visual experience". I don't know if it was a waste because of me or because of the instructor. Only that it was a waste .

"some knows hows to draw and somes don't!" Popeye

The history of art is filled with interesting crap that if you buy into it you can get something from it. MAYBE... I like painting ....so I have a definiton of what art is that although tolerant of horse poop ..I find solace in knowing it is NOT PAINTING! So sometimes it is interesting crap and depends on whos crap.....
IT Depends when you studied and with who.... what was fashionable at the time... might be what some yahoo is laying on you.... up in Provincetown was the king Hans Hoffmann who taught everyone . Some look at the Hoffmann students and think its crap...and they just don't understand... It is like not understanding Italian or French, But those languages are valid.. but some think they know what the work is about and slap some pretty paint and mostly they are filled with crap....I'm an old fart and think you need to learn from the masters..and learn to draw....and so did Hoffmann.. but if you google Hoffmann , de kooning, Pollock..They are the real deal... and over a beer or 7... I'll explain why to anyonel One might understand and still not like the but what the heck...

Default Re: U.S. Space Shuttle Endeavor's Last Flight

Here's my little tribute to Space Shuttle Endeavor. She blasted ito space from Cape Canaveral on May 16 and will return there this week. Then she will be retired and we will have just one shuttle and, it will fly it's last in July. Then we are at the mercy of the Rusians for space exploration.

Here she is - 2 minutes to liftoff and counting...............

Hey Bill - any Memorial Day or Veteran tributes in your gallery? I'm sure most here would appreciate such an offering, given the upcoming remembrance of those who served. Thanks.

Jon,
Above is the closest thing I have currently. It's too close to Memorial Day but I will come up with something well in advance of Veteran's Day. Great idea. You can see all of my paintings and prints that are available by clicking on my website below.

Yes, that is exactly what I was thinking. A nice picture should always have a person or subject to dress it up.

Winston Churchill was an avid painter..

He was in an office of some guy in New York who happened to have one of his paintings that he had given to him hanging on the wall... It was a scene of the countryside..specifically.. that of a farm and gently rolling hills.

Mr. Churchill mentioned it..and the man said that even though he liked the painting that it needed something..."a sheep in the foreground perhaps."

A few days later the man recieved a phone call from Churchill's secretary instructing him to immediately have the painting shipped to England at once!!

Horrified that he had insulted the prime minister...but he had no choice but to mail the painting back to him..

A couple weeks later the man received the painting in the mail back from Churchill's office..

There was one small sheep painted in the grassy foreground..

That is a great story. When I started painting, I didn't bother putting people in them. Then, I did Moby Dick and my whaleboat had a full crew and many who saw it complemented me on that feature of it. Now, whenever the subject warants, I add folks. I'm working on one now of a ghost schooner sailing into Jupiter Inlet to the Indian River Lagoon. It has two guys on the beach and one is pointing ouit to the ghostship
