New paintings ... my journey From Starving Artist To 21st Century Picasso

Today Jay Rolfe built stretcher frameworks for 2 new 3DSSC paintings. Phew! That was a lot of work. You can see some completed expressions of Jay Rolfe's unique artistic idea on his website at www.3dssc.com.

The Sculpture Garden of the National Gallery of Art that I visited last Wednesday was about equal to the Sculpture Garden of the Hirshhorn Museum, although the average sculpture was more recent. Alexander Calder's "Red Horse" was cool - a stabile of his was in the Hirshhorn's Sculpture Garden. Louise Bourgeois's huge "Spider" was typically creepy. The large "Typewriter Eraser" by Claes Oldenburg and Coosje van Bruggen was playful. Roy Lichtenstein's "House 1" created an optical illusion, one of those optical illusions that even when you know it's not what it seems, it still looks like it is. I really enjoyed all of them.

That's today's step on the journey of Jay Rolfe From Starving Artist To 21st Century Picasso.
