(3 February 2012: The most expensive wall painting ever?) But first: that elephant. On the morning of 22 February, commuters driving along the Pacific Coast Highway that links LA's coastal suburbs of Santa Monica and Malibu noticed something unfamiliar. A derelict water tank, which had been sitting on a patch of wasteland for as long as anyone could remember, was jollified by a message stencilled in black paint. It said: "This looks a bit like an elephant." Did Banksy's latest work bring misery to a homeless man? - Americas, World

The Candy Wrapper Museum The Candy Wrapper Museum, where wrappers are to be enjoyed as art, nostalgia, and humor. I began collecting wrappers in 1977 with an eye toward the unusual, ironic, and aesthetic, although I also collected "classic" but more mundane wrappers for posterity's sake. I haven't yet counted all the wrappers in my collection, but it's HUGE.

Painter's Portal Strong, incisive compositions have the capacity to entice, involve, provoke and inspire. Build your paintings on such a foundation and you'll set the stage for portraits of life and expressions of the soul. Some time back, The Artist's Magazine asked me to do an article demonstrating how I designed my award-winning painting, "Cheers!" For a link to Artist's Network, which highlights all the steps involved in setting up this composition along with insight into my choice of props, placement and intent, click on the link below. Here I have included two photos from that series. One is of my original set up; the other is the resulting painting.
My negative review of "The Raid: Redemption" violated one of my oldest principles, and put me way out of step with other critics. In my review I gave it one star. The movie currently stands at 8.4 on IMDb, 83% on the Tomatometer, 76 on MRQE, 73 on Metacritic, and 65.4 on Movie Review Intelligence. When my review appeared online at 12:01 a.m. Thursday morning, "The Raid" was hovering near 100% at Tomatoes. You need a 60 to be a "fresh" tomato.

Bo Bartlett Excerpt from the book Bo Bartlett, Heartland: “Bo Bartlett is an American realist with a modernist vision. His paintings are well within the tradition of American realism as defined by artists such as Thomas Eakins and Andrew Wyeth. Like these artists, Bartlett looks at America’s heart—its land and its people—and describes the beauty he finds in everyday life. His paintings celebrate the underlying epic nature of the commonplace and the personal significance of the extraordinary. “Bartlett was educated at the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts, where realist principles must be grasped before modernist ventures are encouraged.
