I gotta say. paul roehl, I love your art. I'm a big fan of plein air and your paintings are beautiful and impressive. I wish I could paint like that and, in fact, am thinking about taking a class. Thanks for the inspiration.

Here are some of the xmas presents I made for my family. (i'm cheap)

Jefe - I've loved the time I've spent in art classes. I'd take them all the time if I didn't travel so much.

For me it's not as much what I learn (though I always learn things) but being forced into the discipline of painting more, meeting other artists and seeing their work, and getting good critical feedback from the teacher.

I hope you do it! Phyl

Still working on this painting 40"x72"...
Am now convinced it's just too big... oh well. It's a struggle to make the big ones work, like painting a house... whole lot of space to cover and much more opportunity to mess it up!!

Mouse,

So it's from a vase in a museum in Munich. I don't recall the number but I'm sure if you looked around on the web you could find it.

hey there say, mouse...

i love those from arizona highways? i used to try to draw that way, when i was a kids, 'cause i loved those sooo much... used it for cards, when i was a kid... some of it carried over, to adult, for my designs, but then i got worried it was 'copying' ... course, that is how kids learn to draw, in the first place, :O
learning from what you LIKE and trying it, yourself... :O


say, jefe... i really like that purple one! such neat clever gifts...

paul--keep up the great work, on that large one... i want to some day
do a large one... right now, i have more gifts and my two landscapes to
someday get back to, :))

and--various birds, i want to do, and deer... :))

thanks for all these wonderful shares, folk!



edit:
phyl! oh YES, it IS a work of art...

yum! thnks for the share... :)

Wow neebs, could there be a more giving person!?

Paul - yea, what a big mess. :) 'Course we ain't seeing it at full scale. Still, breathtaking.

Mmmm, pie!
By that definition, I think my wife could fill the Louvre with her work.

Tiki, whatcha working on lately, bro?

TJI, how did I miss seeing your collection from all over the world a few pages back? Thanks for that.

Paul, hi and I like that landscape. Is that, could it be, the dome everyone thinks they see everywhere else? It looks inspired by the Mercedes rear wheel housing, oddly.

Friend of mine, Bang Mingo, aka Ben Harris, did these, each @ 6 X 6.

California X 4.

(My own titles for these so far untitled works).
There's a story about the first. Last Sat. I was in the Coffee Bandits, where these are hung currently.
Credit: mouse from merced
I mentioned to a fellow next to me, a photographer, that one "California"
was enough, why did the artist need 4 of them in the painting? They were
redundant, somehow. But what do I know? I'm only a schmo.
Credit: mouse from merced
And then Ben walks in thru the arch into the room and says "What do you
think of my stuff?" and points to the Waterfall person, which I had not
noticed earlier when I sat down--hadn't had my coffee yet--and
California X 4.
Ben is a "serious" artist, but hasn't produced much lately, due to his
growing business. Which is growing, which is what Bang Mingo is about.
But Ben even has a gallery space rented downtown. We were in it about
three weeks ago. Back alley stuff. I can't even recall distinctly
where it is located, though it's near the Tioga.
I need pictures and you will see.

In the Tioga itself, there is a street-level shop-front just rented out
called Pablo Studio, fronting on Main St. His front window and the view
within. Bears further investigating.

This is a duplicate post from another thread, but I'd like to add it to the art thread.

Giving a nod to Grandma (RIP) since she was an early influence on my young muppet brain. She sort of came from the
Bob Ross school of painting, but these are my two favorites she did. Her best and her funniest


This floral won a competition to be on a greeting card:

And her funniest is what I call "Boudoir Victorian Barbie on a Chamberpot". When I was a kid I could never figure out
why that girl was sitting on giant eggs. LOL.

Justthemaid, it's so nice that you have that memory from your Grandmother.

I recently got back from a winter road trip to SoCal. Here is part I - a visit to LACMA, the LA county museum.

LACMA has a diverse collection spread out over 8 buildings, but we spent our time mostly with the European and American collections.

There were two special exhibits going on, both fabulous.

The first was Caravaggio and other artists who were influenced by his style. It was fascinating to see 4-5 painting by different artists of the same biblical story scene, e.g. Judith and Holofernes, placed side by side. One of our favorites was Caravaggio’s “The Denial of St. Peter”.

The other exhibit was a Stanley Kubrick retrospective with space devoted to each of his many films. It was a multimedia presentation with movie clips playing on screens, stills for the movies and production, annotated scripts, and original props. It was a very large exhibit, quite comprehensive and a lot of fun to walk through.

The funniest art piece to us was this one:

it's a big boulder!

It's called "Levitated Mass" and is a just a big boulder set over a sunken walkway. I wonder if any LA locals have done a clandestine bouldering session on it yet?

Part II tomorrow...
