  4. Kathy Hodge's link sent me here. What a truly remarkable post! Viewed it while listening to "Belize" by Mark Biele. It's the perfect accompaniment and made for amazing multimedia. Try it; you'll like it.

  5. Kathy Hodge's link sent me here also. These are "my" artists -- I've been working through Benton's autobiography to try to understand how he processes his visuals. Curry, Wood, Burchfield, Dixon, as well as the photographers -- all are amazing.


  6. Incredible Post! I was wondering if you know what medium was used to create Roy Benzona's Old Man Wyoming? It almost looks photographic but I am sure it's paint. Thanks, Mark
