    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.

    Espanola is a town in New Mexico NW of Santa Fe. Per Volquartz is putting on a seminar there in September.

    New Mexico - 5 churches in 5 days

    September 27 - October 1

    This workshop will concentrate on the graphic aspects of visual communication.

    Participants will learn about graphic forms and how they can be used in effective ways to create memorable visual content.

    This workshop is now full! Please email to get on waiting list.

    printsales@volquartz.com
    The genesis of this thread is rooted in the homework we were given to prepare.

    My hope for this thread is/was that all my APUG buddies will add to the richness of our study and provide some comic relief, and vice versa, it's working.

    Per did say that he thought there may be slot or two opening up.

    My translation of that statement, which he gave to us with the bill for the balance due, is that plans have probably changed for some and it would become obvious pretty quick. (That's actually how I got into a seminar with him last year.)
