Paintings by Pablo Picasso have been tastefully re-framed and are now ready for public viewing, at the re-opening of a museum dedicated to the cubist in Paris: VIDEO at France 24.
Portraitist, architectural painter and art instructor Henk Jacques Fernandes has lived and worked in Aruba, Venezuela, and the Netherlands. His restrained use of brush-strokes to create vivid, lively faces reminds me of Dutch Master Frans Hals’ work. I discovered Henk Fernandes’ beautiful paintings when I saw my website linked on his page, Atelier Fernandes (thank you very much, Mr. Fernandes).

Happy 61st Birthday to Artist and Writer, Duncan Regehr!

“Duncan Peter Regehr (born October 5, 1952) is a Canadian writer, multi-media artist, and film and television actor. He has also been a figure skater, an Olympic boxing contender, and a classically-trained Shakespearean stage actor in his native Canada, before heading to Hollywood in 1980. He is perhaps best known as Zorro in The Family Channel‘s global hit-series based upon Johnston McCulley‘s classic hero, and from his many roles in multiple television incarnations of Star Trek.”
From duncanregehr.com: “Regehr’s typical method of working is to develop a series of paintings, sculptures, drawings and writings that project a common theme or philosophy. By delving into the collective subconscious and the psyche he produces images of an intensely personal nature. The work invites reciprocal identification by the viewer.”
