and it seemed, at that time, that they'd all disappeared...
And then i finally remembered the name of The Gallery that she displayed her work at and found that...!
But-- It didn't list her as a member...!!!
But---i did find a link to another artist that was affiliated with The Art Stall,
and so i used her format, and simply inserted 'glenn' where 'Rawlings' had been...
Curiously; The correct address for for jglenn...
But Amazingly, it found the site anyway...!!!
( why is it that it never works that hard when i'm really looking for something...!!! )
Her site is: Auntie Joan's Paintings
fig.1 Baskets of Flowers, Without a Mysterious Shadow...
She's a Fine Artist & Excellent Draftsperson...
But i just wish she's add a little more 'mystery' to her paintings...???
A mysterious shadow falling across the pots of flowers,
A ghostly face peering out from the filthy window of an old barn,
A limbless boy floating by on an innertube by the tugboats,
A firery plane falling out of the sky behind the church,
A Radically Political Button on the blouse of her grandchild(?),
A long extinct bug on the fruit,
One of the eggs falling off the table, with a cat just beneath it!
A Hobo's feet sticking out from under the old truck...!
Wouldn't that make them more 'Engaging...' ( ??? )
Maybe she'll be famous someday anyways...!
René Magritte; In order to more fundimentally understand & advance his own ability to contrive new paintings, composed a listing of all the ways that objects within a painting may interact with one another...
His was a rather short list; So i've created my own listing of ways that objects may be transformed & made to confront the other objects & ideas within a confined illustrative area.
