Today marks the first year for 70.8%. 174 posts. I've decided to celebrate with an online exhibition of some favorite seascapes. I've been gathering these together for awhile, but thank Matthew Housekeeper, of Soundbounder, for pushing me over the edge with his Kensett post. As you can see, there are a few Kensett's and lots by Whistler. I was a minimal painter, so these kinds of paintings with their spareness of imagery are what appeal to me most. In some way I find that less detail, or at least reserved detail in a painting, the greater my response. Enjoy.
Sorry about credits and attributions, even titles, many misplaced.
