BEST OF 2012Please don't be hurt. This is a subjective game.
However these images are part of my favorites for the year 2012.
Images that I would like to have on my walls.
It was so hard to choose just one. Thank you for helping me with your answers to my three polls.
I wish you once again a very good year in 2013. Be creative, and above all, be happy in your art. And at last, never forget that "together we make a new year."

Autumn BluesThe days are getting shorter
and the nights are growing cold.
I am older than my children,
but that is not so old.
I know too much to be talking,
but not enough to stop.
When a pile has a bottom,
I can see who's on top.
The Man says he will give you
something you can use -
then he builds a bigger pipeline
for pumping in the blues.
There is Samson in the temple,
tearing it down with all his might.
Or maybe that's not Samson,
just some fool who lost his sight.
A rich man by the highway
had his thumb out for a ride.
I saw him pull a gun out
when I had driven by.
Some things are made of sugar,
some things are made of mu

1. Miscellaneous vs Other
Over the past few months, we've been diligently working on cleaning up the category tree of old and unused categories. While most of this will go unnoticed by the community, what you will notice is the change from "Miscellaneous" galleries to "Other". The reason for this change is simple. The concept of Miscellaneous leads one to believe that it's a junk drawer category for everything under the sun when the intention was to be an "Other" category for deviations that don't fit well in other sub-categories of the tree. We're also working on u
"I keep hoping people will like abstractions, space to dream,
consider things that don't necessarily add up."
Koons was not among the 44 American artists selected to exhibit his work in documenta 9 in 1992, but was commissioned by three art dealers to create a piece for nearby Arolsen Castle. The result was Puppy, a 43 ft (13 m) tall topiary sculpture of a West Highland White Terrie puppy, executed in a variety of flowers (including Marigolds, Begonias, Impatiens, Petunias, and Lobelias) on a transparent colour-coated chrome stainless steel substructure.
Oddly enough, the show, "Made for Arolsen," was organized by Veit Loers, the director of the Museum Fridericianum in Kassel, who was keeping himself busy while Documenta took over his home museum. As word spread, many Documenta visitors drove over to see the dog, which sat dramatically, if obediently, in the courtyard of the handsome Baroque palace. After a while, the ubiquitous Documenta question, "What do you think of the show?," was almost inevitably followed by "Have you seen the Koons?"
In 1995, the sculpture was dismantled and re-erected at the Museum of Contemporary Art on Sydney Harbour on a new, more permanent, stainless steel armature with an internal irrigation system. While the Arolsen Puppy had 20 000 plants, the Sydney version held around 60 000.
The piece was purchased in 1997 by the Solomon R. Guggenheim Foundation and installed on the terrace outside the Guggenheim Museum Bilbao. In the summer of 2000, the statue traveled to New York City for a temporary exhibition at Rockefeller Center.
