Forick,
Reading your Dali story reminded me about something. Right next to my computer in my living room is a few cherished books: Several from artist Aubrey Beardsley, an old copy of Lorna Doone AND the one and only novel that Dali wrote called "Hidden Faces". I was given this book for Christmas 1977 and I surely read it then but have forgotten all except for the fact that it's set during WWII. I shall begin re-reading it today!
Thanks!

Forick,
My husband and I are huge art fans and collectors, and are very lucky to own 2 Dali's -- not some of the faked ones. Dali was truly an amazing artist, and years ahead of his time. We enjoy his addball look at life. If you know his work from The Divine Comedy, we have "Men who Devour Themselves-Inferno 30", and "Blasphemers-Inferno 14".
I look forward to seeing your work!
I do have a question for you and the other artists... I am afraid to take some of my artwork to AC, due to the very high humidity. Is this something to be concerned about? I would be happy to tell you about our collection if you email me privately if that would help in your assessment.

Thanks!
Vicki

Ibanole,

I used to own 2 of his paintings, now only one due to one being stolen about 5 years ago. It was a multi-media with pix of a large head with brain showing and ants crawling around. The one I have left is part of a suite I got from Dali in Spain. It's called "Treste of Treole" (sp?).

Someone in a previous post above asked me if I kept the sketches that Dali filled full of holes. Actually no I was not able to keep them as Dali used them to start a fire to roast marshmellows and hot dogs over an open fire that same night.

Actually, the humidity is a problem but not any-more-so than the salty air. I've always had trouble with humidity with the paintings I have collected that are on paper. The edges curl and even in some cases become water stained (especially if submirged during a Hurricane). I suggest you ask a good framer in GA. There are a number of them in your area.

I use a web site to preview my work to galleries, this allows them to determine whether my work will fit with their gallery beforeI send them slides. If you wish go to: www.geocities.com/monarchgallery for a peek.

My two favorites are "A Lucky Bobber' and "Venician Jogger" Although I also like the suite of four sisters and "Earth Wind & Fire"

Most all my recent work is etched on wood board that is coated on both sided to prevent humidity warp problems.

What do you coach. My 16yr old is in football, soccer, skiing and rugby. He's not playing much this year cause some kid, during a game, stomped his lower back with his cleated football shoe fracturing a vertebrae. I was more than upset! He has been wearing a torso brace for 3 months.

Rick & Cheri,

I've given up on sitting on the dock, my feet got too wrinkled. This week I'm going to troll in my dinge (sp?)What I'll do is tei the fishing line to my toe while I row towards SharkRay Alley. Good idea?

I met an email buddy last week that actually thought my idea of giving a 40% discount to buyers along with an secure offshore account for one year was a great idea. He was a lawyer (and art collector) so he naturally understood the logic/rationale behind my "scheme".

Forick, I'm so jealous - my book has an inscription from my best friend rambling on about it being the next best thing to seeing his art exhibit in Chicago (I think). :-)

Gela,

Actually what happened was that I had to buy it from him...he thought it was funny. I agreed only because he said it would be worth more than my paintings. I told him that "I was planning to give all mine away so what did that make your signed book worth?" He said, "I got your money don't I?"

Forick,
It's gloomy here today - expected rain but now they say it will come tonight. I just back from Cabo on Saturday and it sure is a rude awakening weather wise. But, in less than 3 weeks I'll be back in AC!
My Dali book cost $7.95, published in 1975. What's a good hard copy book go for these days - 19.95 or more? Geez, how'd I get so old? ;-)
