When I was young, I had a couple of dreams where I was out on open ocean in a tiny boat and I knew there was a giant whale beneath me. This first painting makes me think of my sinister whale dreams.

In the second one, there is an smaller 'echo' image of the man in the foreground on the opposite bank. Are there two men warning the boys on the ice floes?

Night Stop at Bayou Sara by James Stobart, 1990
Not a masterwork, but I love the play of light on the river and in the puddles on the road. Something about the painting mesmerizes me. It may have something to do with the fact that it depicts Bayou Sara, which is essentially where I grew up. (I grew up in St. Francisville, which is where town of Bayou Sara once was; Bayou Sara was on the river, but the river flooded so often the residents moved to the top of a nearby bluff -- St. Francisville.)

I went to the Van Gogh museum in Amsterdam today, and there was a lot of great stuff, but I was particulary enthranced and somehow touched by this one:

Love just about all of Vincent's work. I have so many reproduction books of his works. Need to see more in person, as I have only seen a dozen or so. I watched program (PBS perhaps?)about a year ago on Van Gogh which was incredibly interesting. The research pointed to him having been shot on accident by a teenager... not a suicide. They claimed he took the blame so that the boy wouldn't be punished.

Apparently the people at the Van Gogh museum were not convinced by that:
In Van Gogh: the Life, a biography published in 2011, authors Steven Naifeh and Gregory White Smith argue that van Gogh did not commit suicide. They contend that he was shot accidentally by two boys he knew who had “a malfunctioning gun”. However experts at the Van Gogh Museum remain unconvinced. Prominent skeptic Joe Nickell also was not convinced. Nickell analyzed the questions raised by Naifeh and Smith to support their new theory and found that all can be addressed with a more likely answer. By ignoring the well-known psychological state of Van Gogh (given to self-inflicting harm, self-mortification) and much more reliable testimony (from Adeline Ravoux, daughter of the inn keeper Gustave Ravoux, the owner of the gun), Naifeh and Smith instead make a lot of assumptions on the circumstances around the incident, and misrepresent what Rene Secretan (one of the two boys) said sixty-six years later in 1956, who did not confess shooting Van Gogh. Nickell concludes that their theory is the result of the logical fallacy of 'confirmation bias' – "start the investigation with a supposed answer and work backward to the evidence".

Oh, yeah... I can't say that I was completely convinced either... hence me saying 'they claimed'. It still was very interesting to hear their arguments and their accounts of what they thought happened.

Shieldmaiden's post is also probably my favourite Gogh. If his work interests you, this always struck me as incredibly interesting, art meets science!

Because you can see through parts of it, but the arrangement of cut-outs and folds create a sort of optical tangle so you have no idea what you're actually seeing. Which is maybe the point, because one doesn't generally wear transparent clothing, but the result is both visually and sensually frustrating.

fashion is not just about the clothes, it is about it's relationship with the body and personality of who is wearing it. It is like the theatre of living.

It's funny because in these outfits some of these people strike me as caricatures -- not in a bad way, but in the sense that their clothes are so expressive of a certain personality (whether their own personality or one imposed upon them it's hard to say; I'm inclined to say the former, but some might almost be like actors in costumes).

All the world's a stage... imagine though, the same outfit on a different person, or the same person in a different person. It is not disingenuous that a person can create a persona for the day, it is fascinating. Living art in a way.

Everything around me is evaporating. My whole life, my memories, my imagination and its contents, my personality - it's all evaporating. I continuously feel that I was someone else, that I felt something else, that I thought something else. What I'm attending here is a show with another set. And the show I'm attending is myself.

So i watched Camille Claudel, and then I looked at all my art books on modern art (as, Rodin is a modern sculptor... she is likely a modern sculptor), and NOTHING. Not even mention to her as a muse, inspiration, nothing. Some of these books have like 100 pages on Rodin. HOW IS THAT POSSIBLE. Now, I do think that Rodin is a bit more accomplished than Claudel, at least from what I can tell from photographs, but her work has a beautiful rawness, and so much movement, beautifully conceptual. It hurts me.
