|Golden Gate Bridge|
Here's some of my favorite art from the De Young Museum.
|Cornelia Parker, Anti-Mass, burnt wood from an Alabama Baptist Church destroyed by arson.|
|Al Farrow, The Spine and Tooth of Santo Guerro, made from bullets and guns.|
And of course a couple shots of Sargent hands, ALWAYS inspiring.
|Sargeant Kendall, Cypripedia, 1927, I don't really love this painting over all, but I do really enjoy the temperature shifts in the flesh tones, and the warm reflected light.|
|Katie LaMonte, cast glass 2007, I was happy to see her work here, I saw it for the first time last year in Norfolk, VA The missing figure is fascinating to see, or not see?|
|William Joseph McCloskey, 1890, oil, doesn't this have a contemporary feel?|
|Me being impressed by the size of this William Harnett|
|If there is ever an example of how painting is more akin to sculpture than drawing, this is it. The highlights of this Harnett are actually chunky and 3-D.|
|Richard Shaw, Ceramic, 1980, fun fool the eye sculpture.|
|The best painted grapes I've ever seen in my life, Abraham Mignon, 1669-72,|
(the rest of the painting didn't suck either)
|Frank Duveneck, Study for Guard of the Harem, 1879. I love the shadow side of the face being such transparent paint, the eye is not there in a way that is completely believable.|
