    Mark I have enjoyed this thread more than any in awhile. I have looked at most all of these and Ralph Gibson has given me the most to think about...so far.
    Thanks for starting this.

    I heard (well maybe I was dreaming about hearing) a semi-reliable rumor that Per was deleting one church from the syllabus and adding a day of shooting body painting in front of the cliffs at Ghost Ranch.

    Glad you are here Barry.

    It's nice to get out of the ruts now and again.

    Are you coming to Espanola?

    I was surprised too when I first heard.

    What I liked so much about Modigliani and O'Keefe is that they saw the physical world and yet they rendered the very distilled essence of what was there. Modigliani used influence from Picasso's cubism, not being concerned with depth, and O'Keefe was great at showing distance or depth without the typical cues our minds use to discern such.

    Technology is not a panacea. It alone will not move your art forward. Only through developing your own aesthetic - free from the tools that create it - can you find new dimension to your work.

    No I haven't gotten a second assignment yet, maybe soon, I was just polishing the Pocket Spot last night before I tucked it away under my pillow before I went to bed. It's the cats meow, I think they have them in now so order one soon. It's the best buy I've made in years.

    No brushes or art supplies bought but that could change.

    I actually like his work and his attitude.

    Here's a couple more links.

    Another artist I just learned about this month is Deon Reynolds.

    He uses old, reloaded, panoramic, disposable cameras.

    Great sites Mark, I was really taken by the cardboard camera and what Deon Reynolds is doing is totally fascinating. Thanks.
