Let me begin by stating at the outset that when it comes to the arts I am a talentless hack. And color blind to boot.
That said, I recently made a fun discovery via Facebook. I reconnected with an old high school friend recently and discovered he has a real talent for painting landscapes. I happen to love landscape art so I am now in the process of determining which of his prints I will have hanging in my home. I have narrowed the choice to 10 - here is a sample and one of the 10 I have selected
Hmm - is this more of a barnscap? Regardless - I really enjoy it - colors (I see colors - just not what you see - given a 60 chart test with colored dots I saw the correct number in the colored dots twice), subject matter and composition. Here's a real landscape example - also one of my selections.
If - like me - you enjoy this type of art, check out Daves web site The David Wolfer Gallery and see more of his work. His site is new and presently only a small percentage of his offerings are available. He promises to add more when he returns from a trip to California shortly. If you're on Facebook you might be able to see more samples in his photos - he's David Wolfer.
Dave's what I consider something of a renaissance man. He designs RC boats, has sold antiques, loves motorcycles (which his wife has banned him from riding these days - just as mine did before she became ill and he sold two businesses and retired a number of years ago. It's nice to see old friends being successful.
I'm currently trying to decide what size prints I should purchase to make the Wolfer Wall in my living room do justice to Dave's work. Who woulda thunk hanging art would be so complicated - geeze. :-)
