    My Visual Diary: turning my photos into art

    As a kid, I drew regularly with graphite pencils - wild animals, mostly, from photos in books and magazines. Over the years, the urge to draw remained, but the motivation to start has mostly eluded me. From time to time I'd get bad GAS, and buy some more pencils, and draw a few things - gum...

    Art show advice

    The local arts group organizes public art at the Knoxville airport (TYS.) They change out the artworks on display every six months, with the new works being chosen by a new "Juror" each time. I have submitted pieces to be displayed for the last two years, but have never had one chosen. It has...

    Architecture Grain silos, with or without art work

    We seem to be missing a thread for these interesting objects. It seems to have become a worldwide trend to paint them - massive scale artworks. Here is one that I have already posted elsewhere to start this thread.

    What would you do if you discovered there was a painting of your actual living room in an art exhibition miles away from where you live.

    Ai generated images / art

    Ai is having an increasing influence in photography. Certainly in our phones, but also in editing software and, more recently, in cameras themselves. With this in mind, I thought it might be interesting to have a thread composed of images generated entirely by ai. This is a trend (like it, or...

    Documentary Catholic Museum of Art and History (Image Heavy)

    Purported to be the largest collection of Catholic related art in the United States. Located in Columbus, Ohio in the Catholic Foundation Building as of 2020. The collection is so large at this point, they are looking for a larger facility. Lots of images to share, so will do as I have done in...

    Workshop in the Art Department

    I thought Mr. Turley would like this. This is the shop area in the art dept. These are also straight OOC Jpegs for the A7R3 so they are a bit big. Especially notice the rack of clamps at the end.

    Art over the Sofa

    While googling “monochrome painting”, I came across the image “Saturn Devouring One of his Sons” on this site. What amuses me is the shots of this print hanging in a typical house. Maybe it’s just me, but I’m not sure I would put this in the family/living room. Maybe in my personal study or...
