  2. Another great selection. Gah I sound like a broken record. Again I am unfamiliar with most of the artists

  4. SB: I'm like you like this feature!

    Jams: that's ok! I appreciate your visits and the positive feedback. Just a note about assigning these images a surrealist label: I try to find images that are different from the authentic surrealists like Dali and De Chirico, though they are not really surreaslits but their work has been influenced by surrealism.

    imac: I love Adnams!


    Sherry: great!

    Di: that nun is one of the more tame by that artist! Wooooooooohoooooooo!

    I can picture you in the nun outfit, for sure! :-)

  5. i adore the color in the top one and the second one looks like her leg is broken and it bothers me the way it looks so surreal ;) thinking the message is she jumped out of the castle but the nun has no idea....just me, not to bother even going there....
    the smoking nun is what i am sure they were doing at the school i was forced to go to when in high school, an all girls catholic high school-sigh--the adnams painting is so interesting as the trees have more feminine shape to them than the female in the center does, again, surreal perhaps? i am wondering what this was called...as always a mind-bending trip of paintings♥

  6. A very strange and fascinating collection. I like the Agar a lot. The smoking nun is much like comic book art but not quite.
