Picasso at the Oud St. Jan Museum – Bruges

Sometime ago, I had the lucky opportunity to wander alone through the rooms of these drawings in Bruges. A small but significant, highly interesting exhibit of Picasso's  drawings. As always, there's a lot of wit, and what amazed me was the ability to say so much with so few strokes of the pen. It's here that a drawing of mine was on exhibit in December 2018. After leaving here, it's going to a yoga institute in Bruges for two months, on sale. After that, if not sold, it has another beautifu...

Italy – Art by Margaret Harrell

A section of the November/December 2017 issue of the magazine Art International Contemporary, published in Palermo, Italy, was called ‘’Il Genio dell’Art," or "The Genius of Art." "Sun Spotlight on Faces" was accepted into it. The publisher curators placed a selection of contemporary art such as mine after works by well-known artistic geniuses such as "Picasso, Dali. Pollock." That way, the magazine reaches the hands of "a public strictly made of collectors, gallerists, art merchant, museum and ...

Galileo Galilei Prize – Pisa – 2017

Exhibit January 22, 2017 This was awarded inside the  Congress Palace, Galileo Galilei Room,  in Pisa, Italy. Galileo was very interested in art since boyhood. He is known as the father of many sciences: observational astronomy, modern physics, the "scientific method," even science. But like others in his age, that didn't cover his gifts. As Wikipedia puts it in his biography, Galileo also studied disegno, a term encompassing fine art, and in 1588 obtained the position of instructor in th...

Below is memorabilia from the Florence, Italy, "Contemporaries in the City of the Uffizi" exhibit I was in, in November. It took place at the Ximenes-Panciatichi Palace, built in the 1400s.

The structure was improved and made more precious by tapestries with coa...

The Best Modern and Contemporary Artists 2016 – Vienna

The Best Modern and Contemporary Artists 2016 a curated group exhibit - Steinberg  Palace - Vienna, Austria In Vienna I joined a small group of artists - in a book. The first part of the book displayed works of very famous - prominent - modern artists. The second part had contemporary artists in which I was one. I really wish I could have flown in. Although I cannot at this point just hop in a plane and go in person, I am excited and the book - and the event attendance itself - surpassed my  ex...

In Ward-Nasse Gallery – NYC

As of today, I am officially a member of the Ward-Nasse Gallery, which is a nonprofit, artist-run art gallery for "visual, spoken and performing artists" in Soho/NewYork City.

Not a famous one, but a legitimate one, with a mailing list of 10,000 and thousands of visitors a year. Here is one of my newest images, though it's poor quality. It's being rescanned right now and I'll insert the new...

More of My Camera Mischief

No comment. Just here are four photos of my mini-dachshund taken at the same time. No photoshopping. I only noticed the odd two when finally downloading the photos off my iphone 4 as I received the updated iphone, which supposedly has a better camera. But I love these playful  oddities. It's always so hopeful not to have an explanation.

Cloud Giclee Art Prints and Prices

Cloud Photographs as Meditative ToolsIt was Bernie Nelson who first detected - in a book review - that I use clouds as a meditative tool. Bernie has just passed away; I will miss his perceptive ability to tie together the clouds and my text on consciousness. But people have long, in fact probably since there were humans, been staring at the clouds and feeling their mood change, feeling themselves a part of nature; seeing faces, images, Some say that a great guru can project images into the cloud...
