They say a picture is worth a thousand words. Well, what if you have a picture AND words. That's exactly what Thomas Zipp does: he combines a simple graphic and lots of words to give us a new hybrid that's lovely and readable.
You'll enjoy seeing more of these kinds of works on his page at Kaufmann Repetto.

I get the feeling that Zander Blom has a deep respect for paint and applies it right out of the tube to unprimed canvas so that the staining makes a natural backdrop to showcase all these "pieces" of paint. These simple and straight-forward works say so much in a very quiet way.
You'll enjoy the other paintings and installation shots from his Show at the Stevenson Gallery.

Cowboys; we think of them as the ultimate icons of manliness, strength and stability. To see this "cowboy" putting on his brace at the rodeo was quite a shock. Suddenly the whole myth evaporated and I was faced with the fact that this is just another day at work for this man and he was doing what it took to get through it.

as in - if you lie down for a while, things tend to make a little more sense.
Am currently vacationing at Seashore Campsites in Cape May, NJ.
You've probably noticed that posting has become almost none existent. That's mostly because I've been spending more time in the studio and also because the initial purpose of this blog has been satisfied. I do hope that you'll peruse the Artists (links) in the right hand column. It will give you just a small idea of how pervasive these genres are. And I would encourage you to Google any Artists that have a broken link. For all the people listed, I have at least as many more that I've never posted about and discovering all this varied art work has been a tremendous inspiration and validation for me.

Looks to me like this guy's got the perfect stance and perfect swing: so I'd say 2 plus 2 equals fore !
And check out the look on his face. This guy is going for the gold.

Titled "Your Shogunistic", this is my latest endeavor with dots and collage.

Ah, the Disco. Plenty of memories there . . . .
Just finished this painting titled "Preposition" and early on it seemed to echo the atmosphere at the Disco. And by that I mean the club that I helped furbish and then later did the light show. I was going to try to paint the lighting effects of a mirror ball with mauve, chocolate and blue spots on it but realized soon enough that I wouldn't be able to properly translate my mental visuals into paint. For me, this painting says plenty and so I decided to stop and pronounce it done.
Collage, acrylic, pencil and pastel on canvas.
