This and That for Thursday

Hi Everybody!

For Art Journal Journey, light and darkness, and for 
I have another hybrid/mixed media piece, using 2 different 
backgrounds merged together digitally, an image from LaBlanche
and some digi stars from Serif.





Today I was able to enjoy a beautiful sunset, as I 
walked home along the Rhine:






Today I am sharing more 20th century art from the K20:

Robert Rauschenberg:

(This collage is HUGE!)




John Chamberlain:



Roy Lichtenstein:


Morris Lewis:

 Andy Warhol's portrait of Joseph Beuys:

Franz Kline
Have a great day, take care,
and thanks a lot for coming by!

  4. I enjoyed the art you created today. I especially liked the white collar emphasis.

    Your sunset photos are superb. I noticed you said it gets dark around 4 pm. For me, sunset was 5:16 pm yesterday. By the time we got to the restaurant, it was already black out. And it was only 6:00ish.

    Your latest K20 pieces are fascinating. As always, I greatly appreciate each one you share with us. That must be a truly fascinating museum.

  8. The white collar made me think of Civil Servants and their approach to light-in-our-darkness, viz: "The light at the end of the tunnel has been switched off in the interests of economy."

  10. A wonderful page Valerie, the backgrounds merged look awesome. men in bowler hats do make make me think of bankers, very posh folk. Up north here they would be given quite a stare if seen walking around in those hats.
    Loved the sunset photos and the ones from the gallery.

  11. This piece is great. It has a James Bond feel to it.
    Isn't that Andy Warhol painting something?
    You have a good one, my friend.

  12. Wow megaklasse diese Lichtseite, gefällt mir außerordentlich gut und die Sonnen-Fotos passen von der Farbstimmung perfekt dazu. Auch die große Kunstcollage ist genau mein Fall. Alles wieder erste Sahne.

  21. Your AJJ artwork is cool Valerie - love it! (should be framed and on the wall at the museum/gallery you went to).
    Interesting and varied pieces today.
    Love your sunset photos too - I'm guessing it was probably not as warm as it looked though.
