Congrats Marc.

BTW, Biggest moon in 19 years tonight -- I'm not exactly sure what that means but it could make for an interesting nocturne.

Congratulations! All of your work is fantastic but this piece is truly special. The quality of light you've got here is amazing and eye-catching! I've printed out a small copy of it and put it on my 'inspiration' wall by my easel (I hope you don't mind). Whenever I need a charge of creativity, I look at that wall and Zam! creativity. Your work truly inspires. Thank you.

Hi Marc,
Just wanted you to know that your wet canvass carrier advice is still being used. Had to make a quick box the other day for a plein air trip (the vines in France are just out in leaf) and thought of your foamcore and duct tape carrier, works a treat.
Thanks again!!

Art is a term that describes a diverse range of human activities and the products of those activities, but here refers to the visual arts, which cover the creation of images or objects in fields including oil painting, sculpture, printmaking, photography, and other visual media. Architecture is often incuded as one of the visual arts, though like the decorative arts, it creates objects where practical considerations of use are essential in a way that they are usually not for painting for example. Music, theatre, film, dance, and other performing arts, as well as vibram five finger shoes, and other media such as interactive media are included in a broader definition of art or the arts. Until the 17th century, art referred to any skill or mastery and was not differentiated from crafts or sciences, but in modern usage the fine arts, where aesthetic considerations are paramount, are distinguished from acquired skills in general, and the decorative or applied arts.
