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... :))

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)..
http://www.collectorsweekly.com/stories/1593-yellow-roses-by-thomas-renolds-lamont


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!!!

There is a nice Thomas Hill hanging in the Yosemite Museum. I forgot the subject. He's a little more realistic than the fantastic which Albert Biers-etc. paints. Yes, I speak in present tense. They died and have been Jack Frost apprenticed ever since in the Valley. They get three months to work and go to Mexico the rest of the year. They miss out on the Dio del Muerto, but WTF.

Holton Frames in Emeryville is doing these remarkable frames in the tradition of Arthur Matthews. Really like them and recommend Holton to anybody interested in framing especially landscapes.

I thought you might notice the secondary image. It's where art historians could go crazy though, because it's not me, it's my friend George from upstairs who knows how to use the new camera and is coaching me. He's not very good at teaching, but WTF, it's the short course, just like when I began to climb. This is far safer, though. He's using the camera overnight, since he's a good kid and I trust him with it. He's 25, he's not a kid.

Here's what's going on in Merced. Tomorrow is an ART BENEFIT for the merced Multi-Cultural Art Center, which has lost any funding it had. It is about ten years old, on West Main St. right next to the Cinema Cafe.
The benefit features this fellow RC, a former neighbor of mine, and part-owner of the Partisan Bar. RC's new art/music gig is called Ahwahnichi. He is a blooded member of the band related to Julia Parker.

I was walking along the street the other day, he was talking to friends, and I came up and said hi and mentioned the gig I had seen on a poster. He said yep, he was a blood and that he had just gotten the idea for Ahwahnichi, so it's all a work in progress. We shall see tomorrow night.

It is RC's Incredibly Egotistical Birthday Party and End-of-the-World Celebration.

If anyone in the area's around, please come support the Arts Council tomorrow, N and West Main St., Merced. 9;00 pm.

Ten dollar donation.

And there is another Merced Art Hop coming ip on the 19th of next month, a Saturday...

I agree.. great shares everyone. It's nice this thread has some wings. Keep 'em comin'


@Just In: My prices are all over the board depending on the size and complexity. I don't do full-sized pieces or commission any longer. These days I work small-scale or in miniature and only do shows seasonally. Most run in the $70 - $500 range.

The fairy girl sold for around $1500.00 if I recall. It was unfortunately condemned to a poorly-lit light box - never to see the light of day again... much to my chagrin. It was a battle to get permission to de-install it temporarily to photograph it for my book.

Today we went to the Legion of Honor to see the exhibit "Treasures of the Louvre". Most of the items exhibited were crafted during the reigns of Louis XIV to XVI. The items are indeed treasures, at the intersection of art and craft. The workmanship was the best, as you would expect for items that were all made for the royals of the time.

Snuff boxes were big back then, or maybe they were easy to hide so didn't get confiscated and melted down in the Revolution. Gold ecrusted with diamonds and other precious stones, many with impeccable enameling.

I liked this piece quite a bit. It's walnut with a marble top, and all of the inset panel of the birds and flowers are made from inset stone.

I've been a pretty serious collector of art and antiques for over 30 years:

I've got a house full--mostly 17th-18th century, but I have owned some nice 19th-20th century pieces. I'm particularly fond of Thomas Hill, since he is known for Yosemite images.
I sold my last piece by him 15 years ago- wish I hadn't. Anyway, here are 2 modern pieces--the only two I have by living artist:

This is one by Oscar Durand, a masterpiece.

Great stuff everyone, and Happy Artful Holidays!


I ran across this contemporary work recently and was impressed, though I'm sure I'd be even more impressed to see these at full scale, 'cause they are apparently monumental.
