Artists Who Paint Political Portraits
Painting political figures realistically or ideally began in the 1500s in Europe. Many artists have depicted politicians for the sake of propaganda or posterity. I will discuss such artists and their works.

Ivory as Art Objects or Protect the Elephants
Ivory can be traced back to time BC, found on items in King Tut痴 tomb, and popular in the Art Deco era. But at what cost? The killing of elephants and the illegal trade in ivory. I will discuss these issues.

Women with Long Flowing Hair in Art
Carved nautical figureheads may come to mind when you think of women with long, flowing hair. I値l discuss artists that use this stereotypical 'attractive' woman as models.

The Veil & its Significance in Art and Religion
If Ancient Greece preceded the Muslim culture, then perhaps the veil of a certain bronze statue began the buzz that prevails today over the wearing of this garment. I値l discuss artists that have 'veiled' their subjects.

The Trinity and Significance of Number 3 in Art
Whether you池e religious, or not, the Bible eludes to groupings of 3 as well as Greek mythology. I値l discuss art where the theme is in the power of #3.

Artists Inspire Popular Baby Names A-G
August is the month when more births occur in the US. In a time where (almost) anything goes, let痴 look at artists who we admire and how they have inspired popular baby names. I値l discuss names A-G.

Dark, Macabre, Grotesque Themes in Art
Dark, Macabre, and Grotesques themes in art can best be described as your worst nightmares. Why would artists choose to express themselves in this way? I値l discuss my interpretations.

'Light Art' vs 'Light and Space' Art
'Light Art' can be recognized as far back as the Medieval period with stained glass, whereas the 'Light and Space' art movement hails from the 1960s. I値l discuss artists who bring art to life through light.

Independence Day & Liberty in Art
As we have learned from history, independence comes with a price: lives, cost, property. On the eve of July 4th, I salute those who have fought for independence in US and abroad. I will discuss some notables.

Best Living Artists of Abstract & Photo Paintings
A survey by Vanity Fair searching for only 6 of the greatest living artists falls short of all the artists whose work we know and love. I値l discuss Gerhard Richter, Frank Stella, Cindy Sherman and others.
