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.

That's an incredibly complex piece, Borut.

I have here a photo of a copy of a photo of a quilt by Linda Gass from 2005. It is of a salt farm.

Happy turkey day, Milpitas!

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.

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.

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

dave:
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...
:)
