Well. Did we meet up in The Gorge, once?

Thank you very much, phylp. I was afraid Paris has gone unnoticed here...but, of course, this is a climbing forum; not an art gallery – except to the extent that at one and the same time climbing is a performing art, further, it represents the art which we've come face to face, and have tried to live to resolution - to speak directly - with the moment of truth common to everyone on this Site. Perhaps many and several of them.

Time stands still.

I began my own etching age 16, while at Mills H.S..as a Burlingame teenaged resident; in contact w/ Harold's clique. Began to audit Cal's Art classes as soon as I could drive; I needed Harold's press to print up the images I was producing in my parent's garage. Materials: zinc plate; dilute HCL; Pyrex cook dish; acid resist (rosin; asphaltum – even spray paint will do). Interestingly to my potentate biographers, I'd yet to take a H.S. Art class – it was strict college prep; for which I'm grateful!

I was only able to afford an 18 x 24 copper plate once,

The Fine Arts Dept is located in Kroeber Hall (also Athropo); opposite the Quad from Wurster: Arch; L.Arch; C&R Pln'g. It was a short walk to there, in other words. Besides, when they were to have builded this Brutalist, 9 story piece, it contained the ceramic kilns; the casting foundry. Plus, that's where Harold kept and maintained his Office Hours.

While I've tacitly avoided faux pas, such as posting up my wife's Art site; my own Arch. I will make bold a piece of decadence I learned while still at Mills, reading Oscar Wilde:

“...as soon as we were alone again he would begin, 'Well, what have your been doing since yesterday?' Now, as at the time my life was passing rather uneventfully enough, the telling of what I was doing was of no interest. So, to humor him, I began recounting some trifling incidents. And noticed while I was speaking that Wilde's face was growing gloomy.

“ ' You really did that?'' he said.”
' “ And you are speaking the truth?” ' “
' “ ' “Yes.' “ '

'” “ ' “ 'Then why repeat it? You must see that it is not of the slightest importance. You must understand that there are two worlds – the one which exists and is never talked about; it is called the real world because there is no reason to talk about it in order to see it. The other is the world of Art; one must talk about it, because otherwise it would cease to exist.' “ ' “ '

Yes Steve, we climbed together for a day in the Gorge some years ago!
Your architecture work is beautiful. Too bad we never got to build that house in Swall Meadows, that would have been fun.
The RV has turned out to be much more cost effective!

Isn't this Rousseau fabulous? I think it may be my favorite of his work I've even seen. Look at the expressions on the faces of the different members of the wedding party. Very sly. And the linearity of the trees juxtaposed with the people, making the connection, making the contrast. And the white bride. I just think this painting is clever on a lot of levels.

Phylyp, those are some very beautiful images, I agree. Thanks for posting them.

I'll just say that I appreciated these line drawings by Abraham Rattner, which appeared in the 1956 edition of New World Writing, a ten cent paperback which has not aged well; so, in order to hide the reddish leakage from the cheap binding glue, I decided to use a reddish tint when I scanned the pages of the book.

I have known Darlene and her kin many years from the bookstore. She writes. She paints. She raises grand-kids.
It was great to meet up with her again.
Darlene happened to be exhibiting in the POOL HALL. For shame, but a good crowd with some bucks.

Darlene shared some of the same space inside the BILLIARDS ESTABLISHMENT with my neighbor from Middle Earth, Miss Lulu.

That's not her REAL name, but she does live almost next door. We had a grand time tonight.

My grandfather, Marcus McCoy ( technically the first, myself being the second, from my frame of reference at least ) painted this after his experiences in WWII. This particular work is much different from most of his other war paintings, in that it's focus is clearly on the warfare/fighting. I wish I had copies of some of his more abstract work, but this is a fantastic piece to me, regardless.

An EXPLOSION.

They explode out of the rooftop of the cramped and damp room that separates the thin walls of the red house of sin from the cinema. Above the old theater, now ablaze, the sky is blanketed with every color imaginable. As fireworks shoot up into the night sky over Eiffel's tower, it almost looks like the tower itself is blasting off, above the bright lights of Paris and up into the stars.

Phylp, thank you for your kind words. I thought I recognized you, and the Millbrea association; how time flies! And so did I, off that day's final pitch. It seems that Gorge .10c has always been the gamechanger for me, 'cause that's where I start getting stonewalled.

It all comes back now. Things were contingent on the FDA approvals, for an insulfation med delivery system, if memory serves.

I was retained later by an older couple, down the hill from your Pinon property; designed a Miesian Box which borrowed a page from you and your Husband's Music “conservatory,” with floor to ceiling Kawneer storefront glass, full width Living, Dining, M. Bed, mitre glass x 12 foot returns each side. Also unbuilt, regrettably.

As a Modernist, I thought you might be interested in some of the interiors of my “Avalanche Ranch.”
See, the exterior is a relatively conservative treatment, due to the well intentioned Greyhawk CC&R Design Guidelines.

The Owner's desires for the interior design was another story: “we'd prefer brushed stainless, plate glass, smooth finish drywall...you know – something 'warm and cozy.'” I took this cue to expose some of the primary structural steel, and ended with just about everything else under the sun, from some David Flavin-esque colored fluorescent strip lighting; to the Kitchen sink!

Janice uses Utrecht oils, either on Belgian linen, or directly on mahogany plywood. Generally Impressionist, occasionally Expressionistic. Plein Air. Sometimes in the studio from memory; field painting is really challenging because the light keeps changing, wind with sand can be be problematic, like sex on the beach, from a practical viewpoint.

There's always been a small local art scene, but it seems to have been coalescing over the years. Janice and I were one of five who chipped to to found a Mammoth artists' cooperative gallery: "The Upper Eastside." Marginalized, this was later sold to Tony and Paul, who, having a better grasp of how much a drop-in customer might be willing to spend on an impulse purchase, made a pretty good run of the show, moving up to North Village, with Tony on the Town Council, and Paul the Public Arts Commission chairman.
