Yep, thanks !!! I'm one of those technologically-challenged folk who struggle with this sort of thing.

Not really art...but what I do in my off-time to relax....I recently got ito woodworking & these are some pics from outside

These are beautiful! My dad made wood furniture too, mostly early period reproductions. This definitely qualifies as art in my book, really nice!!

Not mine, but a cool poster. Actually up for auction for a few more hours


unatoibin_poster2.jpg



A Ride on the Psychedelic Bus
Montage created from eight original paintings by Una Toibin.
This work was originally created as an advertisement for the multi-media CD-ROM game, “The Psychedelic Bus of Dead Knowledge.” Shortly thereafter, the piece was featured on the cover of Relix Magazine (Dec 1999) and subsequently produced as a signed and numbered poster. This poster is not available for retail sale.
_________________________________________
Like many other musical and visual artists, Una Toibin found inspiration for her artistic efforts in the bubbling creative caldron that is live Grateful Dead music. Una echoes visually what she hears, and she tries to honor the music in her work.

A native of Richmond, Virginia, Una got “on the bus” in the early 1980s during the band’s Mid-Atlantic stops. She currently runs CCE Graphics in Virginia Beach, and more of her work can be seen at seen at CCEgraphics.com and UnaToibin.com.

Through the years, Una has remained very interested in the efforts of all the members of the Grateful Dead’s extended family and is thrilled with the revival that is underway with Mickey’s band, 7 Walkers, and Furthur. She would like to thank them all for constantly opening her eyes to the world and she looks forward to what will come next on our Golden Road. Jerry and the great Robert Hunter advised us long ago “Who can stop what must arrive now? Something new is waiting, to be born.” Let us celebrate these new births together in music and art by supporting the KPFA auction!
FFF! Family is Forever!!!

May God bless and keep you always
May your wishes all come true
May you always do for others
And let others do for you

The Attics of Our Lives: Posters and Art of the Grateful Dead Archive


AtticsJacket1.jpg



This 225-page book documents the special one-night-only preview exhibit of the Grateful Dead Archive held Nov. 5, 2011, at McHenry Library, UC Santa Cruz. Written by Grateful Dead Archivist Nicholas Meriwether, the book documents the rich history of Grateful Dead poster art and how that illustrates the band’s archive at UCSC. With feature interviews with Stanley Mouse and hundreds of color illustrations, the book is a fine introduction to how the band’s legacy is being preserved and presented in Santa Cruz.

The book was given to those who attended the benefit event. Nick Meriwether was kind enough to offer us a copy to auction off for KPFA. It’s a hard-cover book, beautifully printed on high-quality paper.
FFF! Family is Forever!!!

May God bless and keep you always
May your wishes all come true
May you always do for others
And let others do for you

Ok, the Art thread needed a bump. And I just wrote this.

Existence

By me

When life is hard
It sharpens us
For the softest touch
The kindest thought
To see a flower
The way it needs to be seen
To love the rain
And dance to its rhythm
To sing the lonely song
And always know the lyrics
To write the unseen prose
With words that never rhyme
When life is hard
It makes us better
Embrace the hard edge of existence
And you are alive



.
I can't come down, it's plain to see.
I can't come down, I've been set free.
Who you are, and what you do,
don't make no difference to me.
