This is a picture a friend of mine took of our boys climbing. She converted somehow to look like a drawing. Pretty cool.

I just paid for this book and it was in great shape. Only twenty bucks. My Christmas present to myself.

The book covers writers whose birth years fall between 1749 for Goethe and 1964 for Jonathan Lethem. But the table of contents lists them alphabetically.

Ralph Hodgson/How the Waters Came Down at Lodore.

Ralph Hodgson/Self-portrait, man with a pipe.

Jack Kerouac/Slouch Hat.

Somebody give me a writer's name, please, and let's see who did what.

Mouse: Sorry, sir. Right out of Walt Whitman, sir.

tiki-jer: (deliberately) Have you in fact got any cheese here at all?

Mouse: Not a scrap, sir. I was deliberately trying to provoke YOU, in fact.

We have this, but WW isn't after TH White nor before Richard Wilbur. I will recommend the White with no hesitation. EVE. oil on canvas/36 x 24

hey there all, say...

i JUST got this neat pic for 4 bucks at the thrift store...
it WAS the kind of art i loved to do... WELL when i am not doing
these portraits etc...

i will get back to it, sometime... i NEED to do my
other blue heron, :))

well, i had a hard time reading this guys NAME.. after respelling it
a few times in search on the neat, i got a PROPER guess:

albert bierstadt... ohhh, i love these paintings...
they are large too... i have not done a large, but one day will..
i rekckon it will FEEL like i am GROWING a tree, instead of just reaching over to draw/paint one! :O

i will post of pic of what i found, here:

*mouse, NEAT book FIND...
also, neat quilt shots...

and--oops, took so long to post, i forgot who else...
just a sec or so:

will edit to add the rest :))

i've had fun seeing how my grandkids and critter photos come out,
as drawings like that... really neat...
i MADE some of them into a color book type thing...
got to get it printed for them, soon, :))

have NOT seen all the new art added on yet... so please, am sorry can't
yet share on what you posted... not being rude... :)

oh--just re-read the notes on him--this was interesting:
Because of Bierstadt's interest in mountain landscapes, Mount Bierstadt and Bierstadt Lake in Colorado are named in his honor. Bierstadt was probably the first European to visit the summit of Mount Evans in 1863, 1.5 miles from Mount Bierstadt.[6] Bierstadt named it Mount Rosa, a reference to both Monte Rosa above Zermatt and, Rosalie Ludlow, his future wife, but the name was changed from Rosalie to Evans in 1895 in honor of Colorado governor John Evans.

Nice score there, neebs.

And those are impressive quilts posted up thread, mouse. I know a talented local quilt artist who teaches workshops and lectures on the art nationally. I'll have to post some of his work when I get a second.

neebee, If my memory serves me, there were a couple of Albert Bierstadt originals in the Ahwahnee Hotel.

You probably have a print of an original or a copy painted by someone .....either way- it's Beautiful.
If it was an original, it would be worth alotOmoney.

hey there say, nita!! wow, thanks for the share--if i ever get there again, i will have to go a'looking, :)

say, well, it is not an original, as i can see the odd board swirls that it is printed on...

it is a good print, the colors seem deep enough...
just sadly noticed that someone HAD it too near a dark board, :(

it has a few tiny holes i had need seen before, though i DID
see a scrap on it...

it is sooooooooooooo neat, i LOVE the tree... i love to do trees that way, so i can really identify with the feel... my mom lovessssssss trees, too...
she'd really love this...

i am so glad i discovered this at the thrift store...
i always go there to find cheap half-off framed stuff to take apart
and USE for framed protection to mail my gift-paintings to:
only cost about 12-14 bucks to mail them then, and the oil does NOT
touche the mailing cardboard...

and THIS picture, i nearly pushed aside, as it was too large for me to use, but:

i PEEKED AT IT, instead, as the tad of tree that saw, CALLED out to me, :))

there see, ol' albert would be happy and blessed to know that i
WAS the fortunate one to FIND his treasure!

you know--there may be a world full of prints, out there, from these old
time artists, but:

EACH first-off-the-easle WAS THERE BABY! :)

thanks again, nita!
so much!!!!! made a lot of fun here! for me tonight!
will tell my mom, later when i call her...

hey there say, nita...

HERE you go... i looked at the lower right corner, to see what it said...

the signature is there, very light, hard to see... in red...

then as you can see on the pic...

here is the copy numbers...

DO ANY OF YOU YOSEMITE FOLKS know what this area is...

it looks like an area i've seen before, BUT:

*the notes about him, though, DO say that he liked to 'add things'
occasionally for his creatives needs...


i cannot FIND this painting in any of the 'fast poster ads' that seem to
show up, when i look for his art...

i'd like to know the POSSIBLE title... this is very interesting,
having bits, even if copies, of these wonderful old time painters... !!!

Credit: neebee

hung up by those old brittle wires that are on stuff that we find
from our grandparents atics, :))

other fun stuff:
have one ART that i did not find or buy, just paper copy, easily seen as that:
a copy from TE-Rerioa by gaugan, but it
IS A PAPER copy, FRAMED that my folks had, and let me have...

THEN i have a few local painted things from gargage sales that showed michigan lakes, nice... and some old neat cabin, :))
don't know who the locals were that painted them, though, :))


say, nita... i just saw this on ebay... looks just like mine, but the
COLORS are bright... i am QUESING that theirs is paper? not hard board, as, they have it under glass...


at least now i know that there is another, etc, around, so it MUST have a
title... somewhere in yosemite, i know, but the view with the tree, up close, as i said, throws me off from the 'usual postcard' views, :))

hey there all, oh my....

so i got more curious and went around to check my last few thrift store stuff...

DOES anyone KNOW who this is by...??
it IS a paper, that almost feels like a photo quality, under glass...

shines funny, in the pic:
HAS no name, on the print, no printing info, etc, nothing, ANYWHERE...
i tried long ago to solve this...
and--did some searches on stagecoach art...

THIS one has a neat LANTERN that softly glows, as it travels over
cracked dry mud... the KIND i loved to pull out like puzzle pieces,
when i was a kid... :))

Credit: neebee

i have the robert woods, lithos, but i just now noticed that one is signed and made in canada, and the cardboard is imprinted on back:
#319... the other is 1226 in the lower right hand corner...

then, i just learned that i have a litho of thomas reynolds lamont:
some REALLY neat redish roses (like his yellow rose picture--really BIG)..

though he is not as special as the GREATOUTDOORS painters,
who do by far, touch my heart, :)

THEN, a neat one by someone named thompson??: the SEAFARERS...
neat ocean and menfolks pushing out a canoe..
(but not the style that i really like--but it looks neat for the bathroom, like at the beach)

this is fun--for the FIRST TIME, since i learned of these ARTISTS,
I feel LIKE i have stuff from the HEART OF MEN:

and not just a cold machine piece...

love this art thread twice as much now!...
we all KNOW that when we see FRESH now-a-days art, that it is from the art, as well: we can SEE it fresh and live!
so learning more of this old history as to what we find and like, or
even purchase from galleries SURE does make
out 'finds' alive!!!

hey there say, nita!! thanks ...i was very certain it was sentinal rock , at FIRST... but then, SEEEEEEEEEEEE, i got my 'bearing off', :))

but still--i love the 'scenic artistic licence' :)

i saw ONLINE, a neat one that he did of the matterhorn... if i can find it again, i will post it...

had those same trees that me and my mom love...
i WONDERRRRRRRRRR if that area that he painted it from really HAD any such trees there, :))
but you know--it does not matter, as, i am not studying 'mapping' by him--just the loveliness, :)

will go look for it, :)

will LOVE to see her painting...
if i am not online, later, i will see it tomorrow... i got
lots of chores, still, tonight, :)

i sure HOPE someone can find out WHO did that stagecoach...
i love it sooooooo much...
