hope you have sweet dreams
I need to get some sleep too.

good night you two. That was a bizarre story about the dolphins.
Nully, have you blown to kingdom come? Here in SLO county not only have some areas had snow we are about blown off the map with these winds. My huge and I do mean huge jade plant has been blown over and the pot broken..and the 7 ft tall cactus didn’t make out much better. At least the house is standing..did you hear about the roof taken off a building at a Navy base in Ventrua county? Don’t know what base the news caster didn’t say but had to be Pt Hume or Pt Mugu..
Last down, first up.
Omens of Hafez
Iman was born on 1976 in Tehran. At the age of 15, he started to learn painting under the mastery of his first and only teacher - Morteza Katouzian - who is the greatest realist painter of Iran. Meanwhile, he began to paint professionally.
In 1999 he graduated in Graphic Design from the Art University of Tehran. Since 1998, he has participated in several exhibitions. In the year 2000, he got married and in the following year he established ARA Painting Studio and started to teach painting, considering classical and traditional values.
The most important exhibitions he has participated in, are: The Exhibition of Realist painters of Iran at Tehran Contemporary Museum of Art(1999) and The Group Exhibition of KARA Studio Painters at SABZ Gallery(1998) and at SA'AD ABAD Palace(2003). In 2005, Iman received the William Bouguereau award and the Chairman's Choice award in the second international ARC salon competition.
Afternoon in Baltimore ;o)
None of them look like you Nully???
Best in Show...
Something tells you’re behind it all, Lame. I better keep an eye on you. You’re good at spreading mayhem wherever you go. :P
Here you will find a picture of the very talented young artist, Iman Maleki:
That’s beautiful, Cardy! That’s a painting? Looks more like a photo, it’s so lifelike. I wish I had talent like that.
I agree Derly, the realists put their argument on canvas with paint - the modernists have to use the pen to explain their delusions. I has better duck if LJ hears me.
And don't forget madness!
They certainly are Pip.
If you added them together, you'd have enough for one me...
I agree wholeheartedly, Cardy. And don’t worry - LJ’s bark is worse than her bite. :)
Yeah!! And loads of BS too! :)
Beautiful choices, Cardy.
All my students paint realistically but one who is a fantasy artist.
Here is the bio of his teacher who was self-trained. He must be very very good to nurture such a pupil as Iman Maleki.
Perhaps you will find some resonance in your own life with the tale he tells:
Needs redaction: Youre good at spreading
mayhem mascot fur wherever you go
Did you vote for Reagan?
speaking of madness............
After reading Katouzian’s bio, I wanted to see what his work was like. His depression is very visible in many of his sketches and paintings. Some of his pieces remind me Salvador Dali’s work, others are so brutally painful, and some portray a very deep sadness. (There appears to be a touch of madness buried in his canvas.) Of course, that is just my opinion. Check for yourself:
I'm a big fan of Reagan and what he did.
When I was asked to teach the class a big concern was how to let the students develop their style while critiquing them. Turns out that it wasn’t as hard as I’d thought it would be and I enjoy the styles of them all.
Gee, yuck. I agree.
You are so right, Lady. Each student has his/her own talent (I believe God given). It is up to the teacher to give helpful hints, but the student will develop his own direction, if allowed (and encouraged.)
This style of teaching was not permitted when I majored in art at college. We all had to make our paper or canvas exactally like the professor’s or the student got less than good grades. IMHO, many talents were shattered in that workshop.
Perhaps he was depicting the plight of Iran then, not his personal angst.
Artists have always chronicled their times, he could not very well ignore the sadness, horror and futility of it all.
Tell me that was only a course or two.
It turns out to be fairy easy to let students develop their style. Once in a while I’m tempted and even blurted one out once, and retracted it instantly.
I was stopped in my tracks reading Cardy’s word for it, “nurturing,” is so perfect.
They can’t create if they haven’t explored and you can’t explore much when you’re forced to copy someone else.
You are right, of course.
But, some, like this one (The Empty People, 1976) - four years before the war started - does show a depth of despair (IMHO):
And, this one - two years after the war (The Forgotten - 1990) seems to show a hollow, empty lonliness:
Funny that we see nothing painted by him since 1990.......
Ah, you just proved my point, Lame. Dang, you’re so easy to manipulate! :)
You are so easy to scrape off the bottom of my skiis as well....
Uhhhh, that wasn’t me, Lame. You must have landed in a present left by one of your sheep friends. Ewwww! :P
On the other hand it probably was just a social commentary on his realization of all the empty suits in high positions.
This is one I like very much.
Good night see you all tomorrow.
Good night, Cardi....thank you for sharing the pics. They are beautiful!
I wasn't considering droppings, rather the joy of road kill......
G’night, Cardi! Enjoyed the lessons, today. See you tomorrow.
Awwww, I was just stooping to your level, comrade. :P
Mr. Mayor, it’s a pretty simple choice.
You can believe Mr. Pecker here ...
... or you can accept the fact that this
city is heading for a disaster of really
What do you mean “Biblical?”
Old Testament, Mr. Mayor. “Wrath of
God”-type stuff. The seas could boil, fire
and brimstone falling from the sky ...
... forty years of darkness, earthquakes,
mass hysteria, human sacrifice ...
Enough! I get the point.
But what if you’re wrong?
If I’m wrong then nothing happens and you
toss us in the can. But if I’m right, and
if we can stop this thing ... well, let’s
just say that you could save the lives of a
lot of registered voters.
you kilt the thread......again?
Get ready to write that poem now...........as Brady brings them to 19-0, dashing the hopes of lip gloss hating mascots worldwide......
The lights are a flashin
The whistle is blowin
The bells are a clanging in vain
If you stay on the tracks
Ignoring the facts
You cant blame the wreck on the train!
But very nice nonetheless............
Acually The Maryland primaries aren’t until March.
I hate Baltimore!
And it's snot nosed liberals!
President Bush is in town today and his motorcade passed right by the building I work in (Social Security Administration), and I wasn't able to at least get out there and wave to him as he passed by.
my supervisor had me doing aged cases.
But my bozo co workers are all whining about the city traffic being blocked up due to the visit
what are they most worried about?
getting thier lunch on time!
Makes me wonder, if (God forbid) we get a Dem president and he decides to come to Baltimore, will they be complaining as much about the inconvienience?
