The only thing touched up on that picture is the color. It was the 1st time I experienced Florida's "coast effect", and it was quite spooky. (Right now, I would welcome and rain, it's been so friggin hot down here. LOL)

I'm a huge, huge fan of An Experiment on a Bird in an Air-Pump by Joseph Wright of Derby.

So much so, made a trip out to the National Gallery (London) to see it. Its just awesome -- so relevant for today and my hands down favorite (by a landslide) painting.

I effing love her earlier work!!! I want to buy this piece: Its amazing. There is a tiny little fountain installed above a plate of glass (filled withabout an inch of water) and it makes the greatest space (inside). Her whole show was friggen amazing. Check out her website for this earlier archived work.

Not far from my house and even closer to PCW is the McMichael Collection gallery. It primarily holds the collection of the Canadian artists the Group of Seven.

A.J. Casson is one of the artists.

http://www.mcmichael.com is the link for the Collection.
