That Dali feller painted the hell out of stuff. Happy Mute Monday.

Troll ~ It has taken a long time for me to grow into Dali. I actually saw a lot of his work at the Guggenheim back when they did the Spain exhibit and started really appreciating the work at that point. :)

AB ~ Why thank you! Hope you are having a great MM!

Seriously cool interpretation of the theme. I'll echo Troll's sentiment on Dali. He's my all time favorite painter, outside of Vermeer.

The Seurat gave me PTSD. (I did my entire senior Art History thesis on "Sunday Afternoon on the Island of La Grande Jatte" and had a migrane for months from all those dots.)

Odd that this is a "mute" Monday. Those darn paintings shout out natutre at the top of their figurative lungs!

Seurat has always delighted me. I love starting out as close as I can get to the picture and then slowly move back untill the thing changes focus.,
