For this Artsy Saturday I give you a piece of glass art I found recently at the Ft. Wayne Indiana Museum of Art. It is a piece from Micheal Estes Taylor. It will soon be included in my new site MyViewOfTheWorld – Abstract Realism. There is just something about glass art that fascinates me. Maybe it is how it reflects off all the angles.
For this Artsy Saturday I give you the Frank Lloyd Wright house near Springfield Ohio. I have been trying out about a dozen apps to find just what I want. This picture is a combination of two different ones. Looks kinda nice in a Van Gogh type way, but I need more practice yet. I give this about a 50/50 between abstract and realism.

For this Saturday I thought I would go WAY back to my analog photo days of 1986. About eight winters ago I spent what seemed like an eternity scanning the dozens of photo albums to put them in digital format. This is one of them. I know it was taken in 1986 but don’t know where?
Even if it is a low resolution picture, I think it is one of my favorites.
I have come to appreciate the work of modern sculptures. I ran across these by James Campbell entitled “Birth Becomes You” recently at the John Waldron Arts Center in Bloomington Indiana. I plan to go back more for the monthly exhibits. (click on an image to see a larger view)
