55 Blogs that Pay Writers $100+ for Guest Posts


Now on to the crazy world of art.

Dr Felix Rey was the physician who treated Van Gogh following his private performance piece, ear today gone tomorrow. New sketches unearthed in an archive in California show the drawings from that exam.

This one I found to be incredibly interesting. Image artificial DNA used to track original art. Now I know most of us aren’t in the league where we would worry about forgery but there is a growing theft of artwork on line. The DNA process alone, which seems to be not outrageously expensive, would be a great business investment if nothing else. Or just enjoy an interesting read.

I know you want more but that’s it for now. So remember

Imagination is never still. The marks we make are Verbs

Donald Kolberg graduated with a Fine Arts Degree from California State University, Los Angeles. He taught at the Los Angeles School of Art and co-founded Art Core, an organization dedicated to the open dialogue and display of the work of emerging artists. He continued his Master studies at Otis Art Institute. While at Otis Art Institute his teacher and main influence was internationally recognized painter Arnold Mesches. In Artcore he worked under the guidance of Lydia Takashita. With their teaching Donald learned the value of depth, texture and form in images and surface. He incorporated this into his concept of Life Forms, the portrayal of the human figure as a landscape of life and a celebration of form through Sculpture and Painting.
