Well, I'm back, kinda sorta. To make a long story short, Walmart was kind enough to let me exchange my PC.
But, Vista is wow, really slow on 512mb. had an extra stick of 512 and stuck it in and my PC wouldn't work. so NOW, what to do.
BUT, at least I'm sitting at my desk and on the Internet. yippee.
Painting is by Jacqueline Humphries.

Alain Satie

Hooked up my old pc(windows 98) at the house; so at least I'm connected. But it was too slow or something, to load my blog page so here I am back at the library. Between the 2 of them, I feel like I've stepped back in time. Yay for fresh new technology !! (when you can get it.)

So, just thought I'd look at some of the artists I admire. It was pretty cool to have stumbled across the Letterists and Alain Satie. And talk about a comprehensive home page. Was visiting an artist friend and it was a special and memorable evening - we went to his (Alain's) site
http://www.alainsatie.com/en/ and enjoyed and discussed every work of art there. Quite a neat story about the Letterists. You may want to check them out. And please visit Alain's site. Many and different works.

Dana Frankfurt

I find it fascinating; one artist will make an abstract - some lines here, some color there and we look at it and enjoy the strokes, the placement, etc. Another artist makes an abstract using letters and words - so now we again appreciate the strokes and placement, etc but we can also read what's being said. A deeper concept, don't you think ? Or maybe it's just the opposite. Maybe it's simpler. Normally we look for meaning or at least shapes and our mind searches for solutions or something. Maybe a painting like this is akin to skipping to the end of a book?
She's represented by Bellwether Gallery, where you'll find plenty more images.
