I got nothin' for you today

Post #831 • July 17, 2006, 7:02 PM • 18 Comments

I spent the weekend and today at a pushing hands seminar at Dr. Yang's joint. New England's getting a heat wave. I biked back and forth to class. This is dry heat, sort of like having a blow drier applied to one's person at all times. The cats have located the coolest spots on the floor, and have their heads cocked to the side, their eyes half-closed, as if to say, WTFF? The laptop, which ordinarily runs a little hot, is threatening to singe my wrist. So I haven't seen any art lately, I exercised eighteen hours in the last three days, and it's hotter than Satan's ass. Tomorrow a storm comes through, breaking the temperature, returning us to the 83°/69° days that have made the rest of the summer so pleasant, and to new content here.

So, what are your favorite images of snow, ice, cold, etc.?

Van de Venne. Or Avercamp. On a more somber note, there's always Poussin.

Only someone from Miami would call this "dry heat."

Fairfield Porter: Snow on South Main Street. Actually, I remember another, but this is the only one I can find.

nice picture from this great little museum in my hometown.

monet- "grainstacks, white frost effect"
http://www.hillstead.org/collection/slideshow.html

the images are kinda small, but they also have very nice pictures by manet and degas that you can also pull up, although they are not in that little slide show. if ever driving through central ct (close to hartford) this house museum in farmington, ct is worth your time to pull off for an hour or 2 . the grounds and garden are also fantastic.

Yang Style Long Form

Did you get the opportunity of studying Yang Style Long Form with Wei Lun Huang when you were in Miami? If not you missed a truly great experience....http://www.huangtaichi.com/
I met him and trained with him when he first arrived in Miami in the mid 1980s....$10 per class at Oak Grove Park in North Miami....those were the days!

I never trained with Master Huang, but it looks like he comes through Boston periodically.

1, thank you for letting me know about that museum. I hadn't heard of it.

Link creation tutorial here. Remember to preview before posting.

Dry heat?

How dry is it?

Why so dry, that if Jackson had used acrylik

The drips would have dried before they hit the floor

That's dry

There's a terrific winter landscape by George Bellows at the Norton In West Palm Beach.

I agree with much of what you say jack
Miami does not have a diverse collecting Museum
Will a Monet ever grace the walls of the MOCA collection?
I don't see it. I think NOT

But I did see a beautiful Monet when I was in Gainesville this summer at the Samual P. Harn Museum
it was a nice surprise. They have a nice collection and a new contemporary art pavilion that is impressive


Samuel O. Harn Museum

Actually, RL, a Monet cannot appear at MOCA, since it's not chronologically contemporary work. It also would not happen at MAM, whose mission statement, or whatever it's called, specifies art from mid 20th century to the present, as I remember. There is a Monet at the Lowe, as there could be at the Bass (if the Bass could get a hold of one).

My point, or part of it, is that there's nothing in Miami that compares to, say, the Norton in West Palm Beach, which is a far less "major" city.
