At the Oud Sint Jan’s Museum of Bruges with Picasso Drawings

Above: Pablo Picasso, The Friendship Bouquet, at the Oud St. Jan's Museum of Bruges, which just exhibited Rider on Horse - an experimental cloud/sun photograph by me - November 26 through December 1,  2018. Bruges is the exquisite canal-lined city in Belgium that tourists love, just a half hour from Ghent, another old Flanders city, and I'm a dual national. Bruges is one of the loveliest cities in Europe, a little Venice. The event is the Flanders International Biennal of Contemporary Art...

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 ...

Computer PK samples – with Hunter Thompson

Sometimes my computer jumps in - not much anymore since I returned to live in North Carolina. But it used to make these variations from what was on the screen all the time, in the 1990s in Belgium. I have been digging into my archives to try to find things to throw away. Mostly I find things I had forgotten about and that intrigue me. Here is a sample of how the computer rearranged a letter I drafted to Hunter Thompson. As always, when I see these drafts, I am not sure whether I mailed this or s...

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...

Jack Wesley – Whimsical Art – See It Here

Every now and then I check back in on John (Jack) Wesley to see how he's doing today - is he still alive? How his painting is faring. And here is the webpage I googled up today. Now, Jack is a really good artist. There is nothing second-rate about him. He has had a lot of good exhibits including in Germany and Italy, New York and Texas. His gallery has a lovely cross section of  samples on display here. See what you think. Jack has a sense of humor. He was famous in the 1960s and he continued to...

Cloud Photography Interview of Me

This link will take you to a brand-new interview with me that explains how I got interested in photographing clouds. I am more known as a writer, but the parallel to that is visual, and my visual side is exclusively focused on clouds. Listen and find out why. Also on this web page, you will see a display of some of my cloud photographs, which are for sale or available for exhibit. Let me know what you think. I also narrate how to move from film to digital and why I stay with film photography.

Rembrandt

Rembrandt: I can't paint the way they want me to paint and they know that too. Of course you will say that I ought to be practical and ought to try and paint the way they want me to paint. Well, I will tell you a secret. I have tried and I have tried very hard, but I can't do it. I just can't do it! And that is why I am just a little crazy. - As quoted in R. V. R.: Being an Account of the Last Years and the Death of One Rembrandt Harmenszoon Van Rijn (1930) by Hendrik Willem van Loon I have j...

Artoteque Exhibit

Artoteque - Art Time 2 I am thrilled at how my photography is laid out on Artoteque's juried online exhibit for Art Time 2. Artoteque is a virtual online gallery, originating in London. I am finding it really synchronistic, how galleries in Paris, London, Canada, and so forth, and a book publisher in Germany are able to find my work since the moment it appeared in Marquis Who's Who in Modern Art. This is fortunate for me, because I would have had more difficulty if starting locally, I think....
