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.

I copied Leonardos Masterpiece with my own FLAIR.

I used one of Supertopo finest Ladies as the model.

Don't get me wrong.ALL the Ladies on ST are FANTASTIC!!!

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...

Those paper mountains are pretty cool, Nate. I never cease to be amazed at what people invent.

Cool stuff Nate, and thanks for the share.....Is it the same artist that did the Mountain Ridges out of books? I think you might have shared that up-thread??
