I found this article about the lack of knowledge of famous women artists, and the subsequent updating of it. As a woman artist, I believe it is important to bring overlooked women artists to the forefront of our consciousness. Start with naming the women artists in the photo above. Can’t recognize all of them? You’re not alone. Read this article then share to spread the word.
The holidays have arrived. I have been thinking about presents to give to my loved ones. I whimsically daydream about giving my husband a master painting or photograph. This train of thought made me wonder what the most expensive paintings in the world are.
I research the subject and found this Wikipedia article that I thought you might enjoy as well.

The beautiful scenery is there, but it cares not for pleasing composition or the quality of light at any moment in time. This is where the artist comes in, arranging in a frame the scattered elements into a story, anticipating and chasing the light, bringing it all together to create an evocative image capable of communicating the visual experience and impressing the grandeur of a fleeting moment on viewers for generations to come.

All religions are about social control. The church, when it had social control, commissioned paintings, which were made using lenses and when it stopped commissioning images, its power declined, slowly. Social control today is in the media—and based on photography. The continuum is the mirrors and lenses.
