I received an email today from Duane Keiser, A Painting A Day blogger and artist, telling me that he was the focus of an article in USA Today on August 23rd. Click here to read this very interesting article about Duane, art and blogging.
I was reading Shutterbug magazine tonight and saw an article about an interesting website called Surrealcolor.com. The article and the website are about making infrared photographs with your digital camera. The photographs by David Twede definitely peaked my interest in trying this style of digital photography.
I met Viktor Schreckengost several years ago at the Verne Gallery in Cleveland, OH. At the time I wasn't aware of who Viktor Schreckengost was or what he had accomplished.
Since that time I have read a great deal about the artist and seen many of his creative works in various museums throughout the country. He is truly a fascinating man from whom we all can learn a great deal. Cleveland should cherish and honor this icon in their community.
On a recent visit to Cleveland, a good friend of mine informed me that on the anniversary of Mr. Schreckengost's 100th birthday there are 100 museums exhibiting his work. Click here for an interactive map that highlights the various museums participating in this Centennial show. I would encourage one to visit as many of these sites as possible.
