Looks like it's going to be a great show bc.

So a question, How many ST artists could make the Facelift this year? I've never been but was thinking maybe a little art show. Don't know who to contact, but wondering if it's a reality first.

Although it doesn't get the hype of other places, I can highly recommend a visit to the Palm Springs Art museum.

Took my mom there when she was out to visit a couple months ago, and we were impressed. Probably spent 4-5 hrs in there.

So I guess I need to add an image...here's an example of a Deborah Butterfield driftwood horse sculpture. They (Palm Springs AM) have one (not this one, but another) in their permanent collection. Constructed from driftwood then cast in bronze. They are a dead ringer for real wood, even from inches away. The coloring is perfect.



EDIT: Edited to add, here's a link to the actual one in PSAM, just can't hyperlink the image:

Detail from Avalanche Poodle by Tami Knight.

It's for sale as part of the painting, though.

It needs it's own thread. :)

Seriously, Tami, had you painted a face on this sun I'd have put in a bid...

Is this a fire hazard so close to the wooden horsies?

Elcap - I too enjoyed the Palm Springs Art Museum. It's definately worth a visit when you're in the area. We saw a Wyeth retrospective there which was wonderful, and another time, a modern art glass exhibit.

It's a nicely laid out space, and as a bonus, you can walk around in that neighborhood behind the "downtown" area and see some cool old houses and motels.

Beautiful pots, Stahlbro!

On Friday we went to SFMOMA to see the Garry Winogrand exhibit. It's really worth seeing. More than half of the photos in this retrospective have never been shown before.

The photos are so interesting. The photos are beautiful but the subjects are rarely beautiful. Not deliberately ugly but just "everyday" life. What struck me the most was the neutrality of his view. It's neither sympathetic nor unsympathetic. It's like he was saying "This is who we are, this is how we live, this is what we do."

About 1/3 of the photos are from the NYC area. My husband was most taken with these as he grew up in NY and the photos evoked so many memories.

Those fired pots are very cool as is the driftwood horse!

Here are a few pics of the painting NateD suggested I post.

tiki, nice work. I mean, really nice work. Should I save up my old cabinet
doors for you? Would I be correct if I said you did the crackle finish
yourself? I'm thinking yes because it looks so good.

Hey thanks Reilly, to answer your question.....Yes!
Please save those cabinet doors and Yes that is my finish.
That particular door was maple.
Have done a number of kitchen cabinets with that technique combined with distressing.
And thanks for the kind words.

Beautiful work there. Love the desert landscapes.

Another supercool exhibit that was at PSAM in the winter was a series of paintings of grass by Karen Kitchel.

Now that sounds kind of boring or lame, grass right? But these were stunning, almost like photographs in the level of detail. And there were about 20 of them, different scenes, I was transfixed.

Can't link images because my net-nanny at work is being cranky, but it's worth googling her.

Nice mirror media. Thanks for sharing that Mouse From Merced.

Here's some of my neighbor's art. She's a fascinating lady who took up
painting late in life. I believe she began much of her work with the
assistance of a photo projector. She would project an image onto a canvas
and then sketch in the outlines. From there she would get busy mixing the
paints and bringing the sketch to life.

Her subjects ranged from flowers in vases to people and also included
familiar mountain and climbing locations like these.

Neighbor's painting: El Capitan. This one goes at A0 considering the initial sketch was done with the aid of a photo projector. It was painted in two sizes and this is the larger one. The photo was included with the two paintings.

She's not painting anymore, but sure turned out some good pieces.

I think she's going to take it to auction soon and I hope the locals get
in a bidding war over some of the pieces. I took these photos as I helped
bundle these and many other paintings for the trip to the auction.
