hey there say, found TWO pics, about 8? years ago... prints ... very nice... they were by robert wood.. FINALLY since i am doing art, now, after 20 years or so--i looked THIS GUY up, as well as a few other folks, with names on certain prints, that i liked...

not the usually folks we see now...


well, this guy:
After emigrating from England in 1910, he began his American career and for more than sixty years he criss-crossed the American Continent, from Maine to California in search of landscape subjects.

and, this guy was:

active in the art colonies of San Antonio, Texas in the 1930s,[3] Monterey, California in the 1940s and Laguna Beach in the 1950s.[

and:
He was a popular exhibitor at the Laguna Art Festival and a Life Member of the Laguna Art Association.[7] Wood was represented by galleries in Laguna Beach, Los Angeles, San Antonio, Dallas, Austin, Pittsburgh, Philadelphia, Atlanta, and Cleveland.[8]


so perhaps some of you folks in calif area, may have at one time heard of him... or seen his work...

Wood's work was widely published by a number of publishers. The most prolific publisher of Wood's work was Donald Bonnist's Donald Art Company which distributed more than one-million copies of "October Morn," Wood's most popular print in less than two years. Wood was at the peak of his fame in the 1950s through 1970s when his scenes of the Catskill Mountains in New York, the California coast, the Grand Tetons, the Rocky Mountains, the Texas Hill Country and the Cascades were most popular. His popularity made him a household name in America. Millions of his reproductions were printed in large editions by a number of publishers and titles like "Autumn Bronze," "Early Spring." "Pine & Birch," "Texas Spring," and "The Old Mill" are found in homes across North America.[5]

[edit] Studio Locations



i will put a link to yahoo images... very many nice paintings there...
sad thing is when you see them as prints, the painting affect fades
from the minds of folks, as the prints fade--but the art qualilty, you can tell was very heart-felt, as to the GREAT OUT DOORS...

HIS wife and him, had a place in bishop, twice, even...

Wood died in Bishop at the age of eighty-nine, just a month before a large retrospective exhibition was mounted at the Morseburg Galleries in Los Angeles, by Howard Morseburg and the Newport Beach gallery owner Raymond Hagen

Wood was an extremely facile painter and his artistic production was substantial, certainly in excess of 5,000 completed works. Wood's work is sold at galleries specializing in historic American Art and is sold frequently at auction, with his auction record in excess of $40,000

you know, i never would have known that, about these two simple, but very nice painting-prints... :)

THERE IS a very nice GALLERY at the above link^

Through the turbulent 1960's, Wood's fame grew and his paintings brought higher prices, some selling in excess of five thousand dollars. At the age of eighty, the American Express Company commissioned him to paint a series of six works to be reproduced as limited edition serigraphs for their Cardholders. Each print depicted one of the National Parks, subjects that were well known to Robert Wood.

check it out... very nice...

biograph is very interesting too, as to ALL his travels...

kind of like the ol' dirtbag climbers, at times, when he was not married, for a spell...
(did not share about the trial in england where he was aquitted--i think this was the same robert wood, artist)
this just in

Lately I've spent some time with Raphael's Madonna and Child with Book. The computer won't do justice to it, of course. Especially with the color. It is amazingly beautiful. Anybody in the Pasadena area should stop into the Norton Simon.

The Norton Simon is one of my favorite museums. I like the scale and the aura of it. My husband and I are planning an art and wine trip down So Cal way in December - we'll surely stop in there again. Thanks for posting the photo.

mine idea of the ultimate expression.

someone so confident in
their undoing recognizes the
void as their ultimate stroke;

the silence as their loudest shout.

death as their immature life.

Hey Cosmic?

That Emerson Lake and Palmer album cover?

I got an ELP collection from a friend. In it there is an interview done some time in the late 70s I think.

Listening to it I realized it is one of the primary sources of material for "This is Spinal Tap" - particularly the interviews. You've seen Spinal Tap? About their "Black" album Smell the Glove, where they wanted a woman on all fours, wearing a collar and being forced to smell a leather glove? The record company refused to release and they had to rework the album to be 'all black.' (How much more black can it be? None. None more black..." Bwahahaha)

So imagine my surprise when I learned that the shaft of light leading up to the woman's mouth in that painting.... is in fact a BIG PENIS.

And the big penis started a big argument with the record company. The artist refused to change his painting to accommodate. (its the artist's wife in both those images)

So they hired some commercial graphic artist of the day to air brush it the penis off the album cover.

Its all in the interview. I heard it about a month ago, while on a flight to Syracuse.

phylp, Dec. 7 they will be exhibiting a Van Gogh self-portrait on loan from the national gallery.

When we're in town, it's our Friday date night, going on the spotlight tours.

Gary, thanks for the heads up. We'll be there more towards the end of the month but it looks like that portrait will be in residence there for a few months. :)

Art hit of the day:
The hubby and I made a quick trip down to Santa Cruz today to see the "preview" show for the Santa Cruz Open Studios at the Santa Cruz Art League building. As is the case with most regional or city Art Leagues, there was a big range in the quality of work. Our very own Paul Roehl had one of his small landscapes hung, and his stuff is at the top of the quality scale. I was happy for him to see the red dot on the tag.

It was a drizzly dreary day down there today, but we made time to stop before art for some yummy Thai food and after art at Mission Creamery for a delicioso ice cream cone...
