  • Of Museums and Art Galleries

    Hello Everyone!
    My husband and I have been wandering around the eastern seaboard for the last month and every chance I got to get to a computer I'd check out this site. Between me looking for a computer every chance I got( guess I should get a laptop) and he trying to catch some tennis matches on tv we made pretty lousy tourists alot of the time.Unfortunately I didn't have my password with me and couldn't post but it's been fun to keep up. Anyway , I just love the new photo-art challenges and can't wait to get started. I absolutely loved being able to visit alot of wonderful museums(smaller regional ones that we had never gotten around to) and art galleries during our meanderings and know now for sure what direction I want to go in...portraits in a photo art mode. It's interesting to try to figure out what there is in a painting that appeals to you. Also, why different works of art have appeal for one person and not another. I picked up brochures from galleries like crazy and also postcards for inspiration. ..Also discovered why I like my digital camera so much. After you take a shot and look at it ,you can decide if you need to change the angle or composition in any way..An idea just came to me- how about a special gallery on this site composed of a potporri of unique interpretations of challenges. Kind of like a "special exhibit". Just a thought....Saw a cute pillow with the saying "Dogs have masters-cats have staffs"...have to work that in to something.See you all around.

    Welcome back Paulette. Glad you at least had a chance to check out the site every so often. That's so true about cats and dogs.

      It's good to see you again. Wondered where you went to. Hope you had a great time. Sounds like you did. You may have to post some of those digital photos you took. Glad you were at least able to see what was going on. I was knocked off line for a few days and was chomping at the bit to get back on before I missed something good, so I can see me vacationing the same way.

        But is it "Art"?
        by Doug Nelson
        Not a real topic of information or controversy here, just some stuff that's been buzzing around my brain recently and I thought I'd jot it down to see if anyone has any thoughts on the matter.

        This business of inkjet companies listing 200 years as "archival" bugs me. The fact...

        But is it "Art"? (part II)
        by Doug Nelson
        A recent conversation with a friend got me thinking about this subject again. I knew there was an excellent thread on this subject here already so I looked it up. Though it's still one of my favorite threads, it was concentrating on the commercial aspects (it's over in the Work/Jobs forum if you're...

        When is "enough" too much?
        by Ed_L
        Blacknight is considering making digital art from photos as a business venture. He is also considering art/craft fairs as a place to sell from. This brings up a question. If someone were to do that, how many different styles of digital art would be a good number to offer? It seems to reason that if...

        Happy Birthday Photo-based Art Forum!
        by DannyRaphael
        On May 31, 2003, this forum was one year old.

        See attachment for a special cake image.

        Thanks to Jeannie, Vikki, Mike and Jak and Lisa for engaging in those photo-art discussions back in 2002, which prompted Doug to add another room onto the house.

        It's been...

        Lost my muse...
        by Toad
        What do the rest of you do when you hit a creative slump?

        I can mess with photos these days, but am not finding the results satisfying - technically OK - but artistically blah...

        Any suggestions?
