Pacific Standard Time at the Getty has been on everyone's top ten list of exhibitions for 2011. We have the freshly minted catalog on our shelves. It contextualizes the art of Los Angeles during the rise of the New York School, Abstract Expressionism and beyond; revealing the hard truth that Art does indeed occur outside of NYC.

Also RIP Helen Frankenthaler

  1. You can of course always decorate your home with flowers that don't grow, or wilt either. These were painted by master
    painters of the past, in Western art history. I found a "garden" full of these flowers at wahooart.com, a company that
    makes excellent canvas prints, and even hand-painted replicas in oil paint on canvas, from digital images in their large
    archive for you to choose from.

    I ordered this one online from wahooart.com,
    http://en.wahooart.com/A55A04/w.nsf/OPRA/BRUE-8LJ5JY
    , called Flowers by Jan Brueghel the Elder, a Flemish
    painter of the 16th century, as a present for my dear sister for her birthday, that she now has proudly hanging in her
    living room. She loves tulips and actually has those growing in the garden now, not far from the framed canvas print.

    She said the print adds "timelessness" to the atmosphere of her living space. That's true, because that beautiful vase of
    flowers has now stood for 600 years.
