But seriously, fellow-topers...some good stuff here.
And with the Indian Basketry of Julia Parker four blocks away at the Courthouse Museum, it's a two-fer.

Just loaded all of my stuff in the car to take to San Francisco for my art show. Leaving today for 5 weeks of holiday madness. Snapped a few pics of the OOAK's. Sorry about the crappy screen. I always forget to take pics then it all sells and I'm bummed I didn't take pics. I posted a couple other pics of the landscapes a few pages back.

Phylp, she left today to set up for first weekend.

It's The Dicken's Fair at The Cow Palace, and they just extended it to 5 weekends this year starting this weekend and running through Christmas.

She has a booth there every year. She also can get a limited number of guest passes, so if you are coming she may be able to get you a pass.

I really like her work this year, she is doing more wacky stuff and more with the painted glass.

In response to a lot of interest in making my art more affordable, I searched long and hard and found a printer that does justice to my originals. All of the information and more originals and prints is on my website: http://blownminds.blogspot.com/.

Ron, please, as yur frind, done sell yurslf short. You have an eye. It's not a glass eye, grate pal o' mine. You see things and you realize you LIKE it and you copy it. I'm no judge. I just know I like your vision.

It's like me, when I take a shot of a bird. I'm new at photography. I've learned from my mistakes, but it's up to me to judge the mistakes and do better work the next day. The time you spend on your work is time WELL SPENT. So please, let us judge for ourselves.

Comparisons are a way to sell a critic's work, first of all, and THEN some boob might believe the jerk and there you are. Rod McKuen, RIP, probably tried and tried and kept trying, to his credit. I'm not sure who blasted him to fame, but he was a jerk. Before long, his "acceptance" was measured by his income. This is not how the arts are to be judged. *

Art shows, like in county fairs, where actual judging is used to determine a winner and is fun for the participants, are like beauty contests--the eye of the beholder, the individual's performance, etc., vary from show to show. But when we look at one artist's work, usually we see progress in technique, choice of subject, and POV and materials.

As for your silly wets, I like 'em cuz they look like what they're supposed to be. Two different types of looking at the world, flat and textured.

I flat LIKE your work, but I won't compare it to anyone else's because that is not fair except as a learning tool, of course, and that is the job of a paid instructor. I'm not saying all critics are wrong. I'm just saying don't believe all of them every time and don't bother to take what they say very seriously. You, of all people, know how to stand up for yourself and defend your ideas, pencilhead.

I like all the rest of your eye music, Supertopo. Yer all aces with me.

* From the reliable folks at Wikipedia:
Despite his popular appeal, McKuen's work has never been taken seriously by critics and academics or by much of the public. Michael Baers observed in Gale Research's St. James Encyclopedia of Popular Culture that "through the years his books have drawn uniformly unkind reviews. In fact, criticism of his poetry is uniformly vituperative. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rod_McKuen

Museum trip report - San Francisco Legion of Honor: Matisse from the SFMOMA collection and Anders Zorn: Sweden's Master Painter.

With SFMOMA closed for the massive expansion, other area venues benefit by being able to show from their collection.

The Legion has a one room, high quality Matisse exhibit going on right now. Matisse is a favorite of mine. I could have spent the whole time staring at the works. I just find his stuff mesmerizing. Here are two paintings from the show:

The main exhibit is the Anders Zorn. this was a new artist to the four of us and we were all blown away, I mean just mouths hanging open, stunned amazement at the quality of the work. Now the average person would probably recognize the names Matisse, Monet, Cezanne etc, but how many have heard of Zorn? And yet we all felt that the quality and sensitivity of the work was such that he should be a household name.

Well, even if this was the first time I had heard of him, I was happy to learn that he was very well known in his lifetime, probably the best portrait painter of his day. He made quite a bit of wealth from his work and moved in society circles.

Once of the things that impressed me was how well-travelled he was. He and his wife live in Sweden, Paris, Spain, the US and other places during his life and he took inspiration from all these places for his work.

He started out painting in watercolor and his technique was astounding. The earliest work is almost photorealistic, which is mind-blowing. Here was one of my favorites of the earlier work, when his style had started to loosen up a bit (1885):

Later on he began to work in oils. Here's one from 1897 that was one of my favorites. The photo doesn't do it justice, it's gorgeous in person.

Darn, having trouble uploading this one. Will try again later...
