morning Ax. i do like to look at the red carpet bodies, coffiures, and clothes but that hollywood set just drives me up a wall with their moral attitudes and that they have no idea how hard the normal blue collar worker and family has it here in the good old USA nowadays. they're living in a dream world but all of that is going to come to an end one day.

I thought the last painting i posted was going to be a rather difficult one but Chick had it much faster than i would ever have thought. and then the one Chick posted and you got in seconds it seemed. i didnt even get a chance to look and you had the answer. its nice to see that a number of people here enjoy fine paintings and artists. i've seen many exhibitions of various painters and it never fails to amaze me when i think that all of them were painted hundreds of years prior. paintings of that calilber arent being done by todays artists. i can only think of a few such as Andrew Wyeth for one.

See above--the handles are ivory.Regular tableknife, the style I put about 1850--'60?
Have 4 pieces and I get one out during holidays and use it--amazing that old high carbon steel--flexibility can get to that good next to the bone meat!:)

Forgot to mention Ax they are two different paintings, probably should have done just one at a time to avoid confusion. First one with painting on wall is an American Artist.

Second one is in the dutch style but not by a dutchman.

Not quite chick the painting actually has a painting or two on the wall (painting of paintings).

Hint is its a pretty well known painting and Artist's name is usually added into the title of this painting.

Afraid not steve, the second Artist is not American and my hint was in the dutch style but not by a dutchman. Another hint the painting reminds me somewhat of Vermeer's Milkmaid that Ax posted a week or two ago.


First paintings main subject is a person the detail I showed is of a painting hanging on the wall above the subject. Cant show you the whole thing or it would be a dead give away.

Okay.
Go back and look at the second and see if it reminds you of a Rockwell themed and stroked painting.
The first one I cannot see, however everyone says it is a picture in a picture so I am going to take a wild stab and say Warhol.

And nobody has answered my question about planting some Egyptian onions that sprouted on me a week ago.G'son brought them to me(two sets), put in window--sprouted --with each bulb you get 4-5 new ones,had some for 5 years--In my opinion the best onion around.

Morning Ax: I dont have any experience with the walking onions but they have peaked my interest so I may have to try some myself.

Ajla's: Pic looked familiar and I seem to recall you and Ajla discussing this one on the corner. Just cant find the right one.

On mine looks like it may be time to drop a few more hints. On the first one American Painter, subject is a woman in a rocker, painting shown is on wall above her.

On the second as I said the painting looks much like many Vermeers an other dutch house interiors but the painter in this case is French. The table the leg of which you can just make out above the bean pot has a loaf of bread on it.

We will see if this helps. Again Morning all

LOL! Lisa, I have been trying to figure out a way to get you some fresh seafood delivered to your door - or mailbox - that would not set me back a month on the mortgage payment. I can get all kinds of breaks on the seafood. My nephew will let me have shucked oysters below wholesale. Darling...I love you.....but even with the break on the oyster price, with shipping they would be over $60.00 a quart! I am working on a way to send something that can be frozen solid and I can sneak in wrapped really well in flat rate boxes. Or maybe we could road trip and meet halfway - somewhere with a heated pool?

The onions--for every one you plant, you get back 4-5--the two that sprouted has multipied in to 8.They are not big onions,like for slicing , but the flavor can't be beat.
Sometimes known as Spreading Onions, Walking Onions(they seed from the top as well as the bottom)--superb.

So far, at least I have the bean pot tagged--and pushing on in the I.D.--ran in to the Helga paintings by Wyeth along the way--

Hint is its a pretty well known painting and Artist's name is usually added into the title of this painting.

This was the "Kicker" --"Whistlers --signature--Mother".

I will give you guys a little more detail on number 2.

This may help remember French Artist but the painting looks dutch. Not quite as dark as some dutch interiors but very similar look.

Am going to plant them this morning, Ajla, it's supposed to rain--and think I'll put a clotch over them to keep off the frost.

They are my favorite, and not very common here.What I like , besides the taste, is they multiply at the bulb, and then a bulb forms at the top of the stem, the stem falls over-- and --voila more onions--thus Walking Onions.

The last patch I had went for 5 yrs with little or no maintenance.

Very nice Ax Homer is my favorite american artist. I like that gulf stream and his other nautical ones Breezing Up is one of my favorites. Also like one by him titled Crack the whip.

I like Wyeth too. So many good paintings out there it is almost hard to have a favorite artist or painting for fear of limiting oneself and missing out.


Van Eyck was the master of the hidden picture within the picture, one of the first to use reflections in a mirror, etc to hide a little tidbit.


I even like some of the more obscure Impressionists such as Berthe Morisot, Corot when he painted people Girl with the pearl is a classic Corot, Mary Cassat also has some very nice stuff.


I also enjoy the Rennaissance masters, the vivid blue and red tones in some is astounding. Raphael and Da Vinci are probably my favorites of the big well known ones also like the more obscure like Fra Fillipio Lippi. Hope I got the name right.

Too many paintings and too little time. Life is short so live it to the fullest.

one of the reasons i make it a point to go to as many of their exhibits as i can when they are in our area, phila. & nyc. I love Andrew Wyeth and feel he is as good as any of them in his own style. old masters and impressionists also right up there. Renoir is my alltime fav

Ajla: Chick is referring to your painting puzzle that has us all stumped, myself included. I found many similiar ones but cant seem to get this one.

I think it may be time for some clues or more details.


Also: I need help finding a painting. It is by an american artist probably Maine or other New England artist. The painting is of an old Sea Captain and a little girl standing on a bluff overlooking the sea in a storm. The artist does an incredible job of portraying the wind and salt air by the movement of the girls hair. You can literally feel and smell it. Sea Captains face has that wrinkled and ageless look of someone who has spent their life out in the elements.

I cant find it and dont remember who the artist was but love the painting.
