Art Foraging - The Latest Catch

Art foraging on the web...sometimes remarkable; always eclectic.



Maryna Baranovka's work reminds me a bit of Linda's at Vulture Peak Muse


Rockwell seems out of place among these innovative, contemporary artists but I couldn't resist including this painting I'd either never seen before or never noticed. I love the perspective from above. When I see such great work from Norman Rockwell, I am reminded of what an amazing illustrator he really was. ~P.S.


 Ebb and Flow
 New York
 Richard Long: Flow and Ebb opens with an overwhelming and head-tilting painting on the gallery’s double-height, first floor wall. Created specifically for the space, the painting comprises an immense black circle, which is cut by an arc of light-brownish mud. Nearly spanning the entire wall, the work pushes the gallery-goer back on order to take it all in.  The rest is here at Art Culture.

The Strolling of the Heifers

Linking to My World and Shadow Shots


My last post Homelessness in the U.S, is a serious and sober one. Let's have some fun now, shall we?  :-)

 Last Saturday, The Future Mr. Pagan Sphinx and I awoke early to beautiful morning of sun and a fresh spring breeze. A perfect day to take in the 10th annual Strolling of the Heifers parade (and Slow Living Summit) in nearby Brattleboro, Vermont. It was to be our first time, as previous years we've missed it for one reason or another.

The Strolling of the Heifers celebrates New England small farm tradition, new-age organic farming and, as my friend Susan put it, generous doses of fun and funk! Enjoy!


There is a tradition in Vermont that if you see a cow in the middle of the road, go ahead and milk it. Just make sure you leave enough milk for the next guy.  ;-)





The sign on the back of the cart reads save gas, ride an ass!  :-)
 The first crop of local strawberries is on its way to the markets this week!



Harlow's farm and sugarhouse is a business that was always generous to the kids at my former Vermont school; giving us free tours and great deals on fruit to take home.

 And proud.

 I thought this girl was especially sweet. The heifer, I mean!


 The Dairy Fairy organizes her ring!


Not just for heifers:







Finally, for you foreigners who assume that all Americans are obese, a skinny cow!  ;-)

"When the Amherst sphinx styled herself a pagan, she meant she didn’t believe in the biblical God. What sort of deity, if any, she did believe in is hard to pinpoint."
