Some of you may have noticed that my posting has been sporadic as of late. One of the big reasons for that is I have been working hard on getting everything ready to launch my business in a few months time. I know that I have mentioned little pieces about it, but I now have my confirmed logo designed by Karen Rubado (see above - isn't it beautiful) and feel like I am close to being ready so I now feel good about talking about it to you all.
These are the creative and committed women aka “Commuting Women” who took part in the Delaware Canal Festival winning the “Most Beautiful” decorated canoe prize.

The city is filled with an invisible landscape of networks that is becoming an interwoven part of daily life. WiFi networks and increasingly sophisticated mobile phones are starting to influence how urban environments are experienced and understood. We want to explore and reveal what the immaterial terrain of WiFi looks like and how it relates to the city.
Édouard Manet ( US pron.: / m æ ˈ n eɪ / or UK / ˈ m æ n eɪ / ; French: [edwaʁ manɛ] ; 23 January 1832 – 30 April 1883) was a French painter. One of the first 19th-century artists to approach modern and postmodern-life subjects, he was a pivotal figure in the transition from Realism to Impressionism . His early masterworks, The Luncheon on the Grass (Le déjeuner sur l'herbe) and Olympia , engendered great controversy and served as rallying points for the young painters who would create Impressionism.
Tiziano Vecelli or Tiziano Vecellio ( c. 1488/1490 [ 1 ] – 27 August 1576 [ 2 ] ) known in English as Titian ( pron.: / ˈ t ɪ ʃ ən / ) was an Italian painter, the most important member of the 16th-century Venetian school . He was born in Pieve di Cadore , near Belluno (in Veneto ), in the Republic of Venice .
William-Adolphe Bouguereau ( French: [buɡ(ə)ˈʁo] , November 30, 1825 – August 19, 1905) was a French academic painter and traditionalist. In his realistic genre paintings he used mythological themes, making modern interpretations of classical subjects, with an emphasis on the female human body. [ 1 ] During his life he enjoyed significant popularity in France and the United States, was given numerous official honors, and received top prices for his work. [ 2 ] As the quintessential salon painter of his generation, he was reviled by the Impressionist avant-garde. [ 2 ] By the early twentieth century, Bouguereau and his art fell out of favor with the public, due in part to changing tastes. [ 2 ] In the 1980s, a revival of interest in figure painting led to a rediscovery of Bouguereau and his work. [ 2 ] Throughout the course of his life, Bouguereau executed 822 known finished paintings, although the whereabouts of many are still unknown. [ 3 ]

The second bit of advice a beginning artist usually gets is “ draw from life ”. And it is excellent advice! After all, if you can't draw what is right in front of you, you certainly won't be able to draw what you see in your imagination either.
Early Christian art and architecture (or Paleochristian art) is the art produced by Christians or under Christian patronage from the earliest period of Christianity to, depending on the definition used, some time between about 350 and 525.

François Boucher ( French pronunciation: [fʁɑ̃swa buʃe] ) (29 September 1703 – 30 May 1770) was a French painter , a proponent of Rococo taste, known for his idyllic and voluptuous paintings on classical themes, decorative allegories representing the arts or pastoral occupations, intended as a sort of two-dimensional furniture. He was perhaps the most celebrated decorative artist of the 18th century. He also painted several portraits of his illustrious patroness, Madame de Pompadour .
