Today we went up to the de Young to see the works on display from the William S. Paley collection.
Here are a few of my favorites:

Classics, Phylp.
Neato, Reilly. Artist?
Let's see more, John!

An artist I stumbled across just now, with whom I was unfamiliar. Reminds me of Ed Ruscha, but more comical and cynical.
Wayne White:








Actually, Ruscha deserves some images in this thread.

TY, Phylyp. It was inspeyered, yes?

I am not sure how to respond to the sloganeering photos. Lot of room to play thee.

I'd like to see Lovers Leap covered by wilted words like snow...

I'd best take off for the poetry thread, huh?

Nabokov cover art.
This is one of those early trade paperbacks from the late fifties and the sixties that came with really stiff covers. This cover has lasted and not faded.

BillO, is that a painting or photoshop image? Whatever it is I really like it, thanks for the image.

BillO, I'm going to guess a watercolor on very heavy weight watercolor paper? I'm guessing the photo doesn't do justice to the dark area in the lower quarter. I'm seeing hints of what's really there on my screen, but I'm sure not all of it.

Glad you joined our ST art corner!

this just in and phylp. The moon was added to this in photoshop and then I applied the oil painting filter. The dark area in the front is hwy 101. I tweaked the brightness a little bit but for the most part it is pretty close to the original shot. Glad you like I had fun creating it.

This is strange. The above link is not welcome. It's not very helpful. It sucks, in fact. But it's a great collection. Google "Gallery of Albert Bierstadt paintings Xmission" and have fun.

One wall of A.B. is worth thousands and thousands of words. His "artistic fictions" are as imaginative as any other artist's tender renderings. I like his taking liberty. My cap's off to the old gumball.

I wouldn't follow one of his topos, though, no Fn Way!

I just saw two Bierstadt prints, framed, 24 X 36, at a local antique shop for a low $60 each--frames are a little worn. Sentinel Rock and Yosemite Falls. Ka-ching! At last I can own a Bierstadt. Maybe two.
