Great Pics as always GO!

Just noticed this when posting my latest K-Dog. Sorry I missed it at Thanksgiving.

Thanks for the compliment but I'm reminded of the American Indian portfolio of photos you published during the pipeline protest. Those were "Spectacular!"                                                  Thanks again and regards, GO

 I became aware of Sister Wendy's death this morning and have had that empty, sad, almost tearful recollection of her just pass.

What an educator and wonderful person. A woman truly inspired to bring Art and it's wonders to everyone.

Saying I was a fan of the famous Carmelite Nun would be understatement, since owning and relishing every book she has ever written as well as every video and PBS show. My mind now has me back in Grammar school with the different nuns who devoted their life to educating kids and preparing them to make their way through life.

It took me so many years to realize the difference between a job and a vocation. Strange the effect a single stranger can have on you in this world, heh Diners.

Re: DD Favorite Art Gallery - SISTER WENDY - Las Minias - Velasquez
« Reply #215 on: January 15, 2019, 05:21:37 AM »

Las Meninas is a 1656 painting in the Museo del Prado in Madrid, by Diego Velázquez, the leading artist of the Spanish Golden Age. Its complex and enigmatic composition raises questions about reality and illusion, and creates an uncertain relationship between the viewer and the figures depicted. Because of these complexities, Las Meninas has been one of the most widely analyzed works in Western painting.

  "The sound of colors is so definite that it would be hard to find anyone who would express bright yellow with base notes, or dark lake with the treble."

-Wassily Kandinsky


                                         
                                                      Autumn in Murnau


                                         
                                                             White sound   


                                           
                                                                Winter Landscape


                                           
                                                        Improvisation 31 (Sea Battle)   


                                             
                                                            Contrasting sounds

 
  The creator of the first modern abstract paintings, Wassily Kandinsky was an influential Russian painter and art theorist. In his youth, he studied law and economics at the University of Moscow, and was later hired as a professor of Roman law at the University of Dorpat in Estonia. He was 30 years old when he began his studies in painting, focusing on life drawing, sketching, and anatomy, at the University of Munich.

He was not immediately accepted into the school as an art student, and so in the meantime he began learning art by himself, gaining artistic insight from Monet’s Haystacks and Richard Wagner’s composition Lohengrin. He was also influenced by the teachings of anthroposophy

Just love it when you post this stuff. Kandinsky is not someone I have ever spent much time with.
Breath of fresh air. Thanks, GO.

Gald you enjoyed it Surly. He is quite remarkable.

The internet and my PC were the best things that ever happened to me.
Spend at least an hour a day looking at art works. What a gift technology can be as well as a curse I guess.

I have piles of Art books, the large cumbersome kind that are as obsolete now as the floppy disc.  I cannot bring myself to throw them out, despite the constant prodding from the old lady. She claims I'm a hoarder, calls all my hoarded goods junk.   :-[

If that's a curse, I share it with you. I no longer have room to store all my books in my house, and have a bunch in storage. This is after several purges. Books are like old friends, and as we get older we are loathe to lose either.
