Oct 16, 2010: Wet Windshield

Yeah a wet windshield, you know that, everybody's seen one.



YOU: It's a photograph of a wet windshield, so what?
ME: It's not a photograph.

YOU: OK, so it's a good digital rendering of a wet windshield, same difference.
ME: It's not a digital rendering.

YOU: Hmmm... screen capture?
ME: Nope, it's a 36" x 48", oil painting on canvas.

YOU: No shit.
ME: No shit, and there's more here.

Not much I can say really except "Wooooooooooooow".

Texting while driving is dangerous enough. Now we got painting while driving to worry about, too. And in the rain?!?



Hillrick  Saturday Oct 16 10:48 AM

Pretty good painting but as art is supposed to make you feel I don't like this because it associates every stressful negative moment of driving in the rain.



xoxoxoBruce  Saturday Oct 16 10:52 AM

Negative is a feeling.



Shawnee123  Saturday Oct 16 11:04 AM

True...art ain't always s'posed to make you feel good!

I like it.



Diaphone Jim  Saturday Oct 16 01:01 PM

As the artist says:
"In the case of driving, the abstraction and distortion of the water are indexical to the windshield (as smoke can be traced to fire). The result is that painting, per se, can summon a pre-verbal experience- slipping outside of static referents and into a gestalt of sensation, both fixed and fluid."
Right.
Van Gogh had vison problems too, but they couldn't be solved by;
"Hey man, turn on the fuckin' wipers!"

Snore. Photorealism is soooo 70's.



Trilby  Saturday Oct 16 02:01 PM

Mmmmmmmmmmm...blurrrrrry.

Little different than the fog on the inside you normally see, eh.

AVG isn't seeing that, even on Google it's giving me a little safe search thingy.



SPUCK  Sunday Oct 17 06:07 AM

That site freezes my computer.



xoxoxoBruce  Sunday Oct 17 10:33 AM

OK, I changed the link in the OP to the artist's site direct. Try that and see if you have a problem?



FloridaDragon  Sunday Oct 17 11:11 AM

Better! the site advisor has no issues with that link ... no idea if there really was an issue or not but better safe than sorry... especially since I am dealing with virus issues on a lot of shared drives at work right now



xoxoxoBruce  Sunday Oct 17 11:16 AM

Absolutely, thanks for taking the time to let us know there was a possible problem.
Hope it works for Spuck.



SPUCK  Monday Oct 18 06:16 AM

Oh heck yeah!. Much bettah. Thanks.
I think that first site was dropping such a load of advertising crap on me that the megabyte of scripts was dragging me down.



xoxoxoBruce  Monday Oct 18 07:01 AM

Cool, wish I'd known sooner but I wasn't having a problem/warnings, and I use that site every day.
