Jo Ann, ever done a self-portrait? Just curious.

By the way, I like the transitions on the collage. Nice!


That's very beautiful.


Who's the shmuck posing as Norm?

Hi Erick,

I've done a lot of portraits but never a self portrait. Well, I painted a lady lounging on a boulder as a part of a landscape, and I used myself as model for the figure. But few people notice her and when someone does notice, they ask me if it's part of the boulder or if they're really seeing a woman lying there.

Love it -- though I don't know if I love the paintings, or Bach's the most. Great stuff!



Art as music (syn-aesthesing). A near-Schnittkean post modernism (Now as inclusive of Then, not depending-on-what-the-word-is-is). "Bach's" there too? Didn't notice. Cello's sweet.

A Proto-...something good.

Very nice - thanks Norm (& Lorene).

Haunting. A short glimpse into the universal properties of "feminine". Dare I say, erotic? Also strange to me that the same faces appear again and again as our DNA does its little dance.

More! I would love to see more like this.

The very first picture is of a MAN not a woman. Its a Byzantine icon of Archangel Michael. Otherwise, this is really nice.
