2 Things Challenge: Art/Graffiti

ART: This is one of the Helga Pictures, entitled Farm Road, painted by Andrew Wyeth in 1979. Look at the use of light, and the sharp and blended images. My folks took us to see the Helga Pictures at the Canton Art Museum years ago. I was haunted by the images for a long time after seeing them. I remember wondering what it would be like to be a painter's muse, to be preserved the way a particular person sees you, during a particular moment. To be interpreted. Immortality of a kind.

"Popular art is the dream of society; it does not examine itself." - Margaret Atwood

GRAFFITI: I found these photos from Denver by graffiti artist Emit, on Fatcap.
