Mt. Shuksan - by Connie L. Stone

 

“Mt. Shuksan” by Connie L. Stone - 1994

 

 

This is a painting given to me for the Christmas of 1994. It was given to me by the painter, Connie Lee Stone, who was my girlfriend at the time.

 

I may be a little biased but I feel this painting is one of Connie’s best works, at least up to that time.

 

Although rarely these days, Connie and I still talk with each other and consider each other good friends.

 

By the way, there is a real Mt. Shuksan here in Washington State; it is up near British Columbia Canada, just to the east of Mt Baker - which is a dormant volcano.

 

Connie and I had gone to visit Mt. Baker and Mt. Shuksan the summer of 1994 so this painting is a reminder of that day.

House over the Bridge, 1909

By Diego Rivera

 

This gentle and calm style of painting by Diego Rivera is very rare to his radical political displays.

The Death of Socrates (1787)

 

By Jacques-Louis David

 

Jacques-Louis David was a french painter and mostly did portraits of royal & high ranked military figures, I like this one due to the rarity of the subject matter.

here is an interesting montage of portraits of women in art over the past 500 years. If this isnt the coolest thing you ever did see, then you -um- have seen more cool things than me...
