Piet Mondrian (born March 7, 1872) was a Dutch painter who played a pioneering role in bringing art forms, such as ‘Neo-Plasticism’ and ‘Cubism,’ into limelight. For the most part, however, they are lithographs and serigraphs and the like. Very few of his original one-of-a-kind paintings made it to market, almost all of them are owned by family members. If you happen to be on one of the ships Park West auctions on, you can get a KinKade at a Very reasonable price; the one below cost me $482. If you buy more than one, I seen them go as low as $250 each (qty 10 in that case). Octavia Art Gallery currently has three large Walter Anderson works on paper in inventory. Anderson’s depictions of the plants, animals, and people of the Gulf Coast have placed him in the forefront of American painters of the Twentieth Century. These three larger scale works from his Oldfields period reflect his training, innovation and thorough understanding of the history of art. Brown, S., Gotell, E., & Ekman, S.L. (2001).

Susan Crawford (1941-) Undoubtedly one of the greatest British equestrian artists, Susan Crawford has created an outstanding body of work, including one of the best known equestrian paintings ‘We Three Kings’, which features portrait heads of ‘Desert Orchid, Red Rum and Arkle’. Born in Scotland in 1941, Susan Crawford has enjoyed enormous professional success and acclaim throughout her career. Having seen the original works of Cubist art by Pablo Picasso and Georges Braque, Mondrian was inspired to go to Paris in 1911. While in Paris, his work ‘The Sea’ (1912) clearly showed the influence of Picasso and Braque. Cubism in the French capital led him to create several paintings centering around trees including ‘Flowering Apple Tree’. It was also in Paris that Mondrian started creating an abstract art style of his own. Artist Frank Rossiter Crozier enlisted as a soldier with the Australian Imperial Force in March 1915. He served in the 22nd Battalion in Egypt and later at Gallipoli, where he was approached by journalist C.E.W. Bean to help illustrate the ‘Anzac Book’, a collection of short stories and illustrations for the troops. Bean, who had been given the role of official military historian, was impressed with Crozier’s artistic abilities, and when official war artists were being commissioned by the Australian Government, Bean happily put Crozier’s name forward.

A study with healthy older adults found that those with ten or more years of musical experience scored higher on cognitive tests than musicians with one to nine years of musical study. The non-musicians scored the lowest. Since studying an instrument requires years of practice and learning, it may create alternate connections in the brain that could compensate for cognitive declines as we get older,â€ says lead researcher Brenda Hanna-Pladdy.

Arts Integration is an approach to teaching that integrates the fine and performing arts as primary pathways to learning. Arts integration differs from traditional education by its inclusion of both the arts discipline and a traditional subject as part of learning (e.g. using improvisational drama skills to learn about conflict in writing.) The goal of arts integration is to increase knowledge of a general subject area while concurrently fostering a greater understanding and appreciation of the fine and performing arts. Day, T. (2011).

I love watching documentaries about bands who became really famous. I love how it shows that most people just start out with simple and normal lives. And then one day their abilities come in line with an opportunity of a life time, and just by chance their lives are changed forever. Of course these documentaries never show a complete story, these are only a few particular moments in a persons life, so we have no idea who they are, or who they could have been if their lives would have been different. I myself think it’s better to dream about these experiences then to have them come true. Because I would hate to live a dream that I was unable to wake up from, that would suck. But of course you don’t have to be famous to be at that crossroad like that, because everyone has to make decisions. And what ever those decisions were, or how bad some of those decisions were, you have to find a way to live through those decisions no matter what, because you are here for a reason, so you have to find that reason, because it may not find you. If you’re not looking for it, you may never find it. But be careful where you look, if you’re not looking in the right places at the right time, you may find more trouble then success. Remember, life is a double edge sword, but it’s your sword, so being dull on one side might be a little safer. But this is your life, not mine.
