On my desk.......

I haven't yet participated in Kootoyoo's meme, 'On my desk...' because, well, I don't have a desk exactly. And Wednesday is my morning date with the hubster. So my desk ends up being at Borders, sitting with a bunch of magazines sipping a latte or a tea and most decidedly eating a cheesecake.

Today I felt inspired to share. On my desk at Borders: I was looking at Art in America, an art mag I quite like but rarely buy. As I read articles and flipped through looking at the whose who of exhibiting artists, I came upon this painting, entitled Daybreak, by Eric Aho.

I think it is absolutely stunning. I love the carvings of colour, the abstracted landscape. The explosions. I am working with a similar concepts with my blurscapes.

This is the first time I have seen this artist. Now I am going to learn more. If you are in Hanover, New Hampshire, he has a show at the Spheris Gallery until 19th November. I'd love to go!

There's so much good work out there, isn't there??

Y'know, I'm not all that far from Hanover. If I have time this weekend, I'd love to see more of his work.

How I love art...I must get to the local gallery again soon.

Karin, I reserved Rise by Ingrid Poulson from my local library & was able to pick it up this morning. Looking forward to a great read about a resilient woman! Thanks for the recommendation mate.

Eric is a clever guy. The blurscapes look wonderful. I'll look forward to seeing more of those.
