By: Glen Earl Alps: Untitled. 1955. 2.23.17. This piece is a collagraph. The artist is using organic and inorganic shapes to make the collagraph. I enjoy this piece of the shapes and the flowing form of it.
By: Norman Roland Eppink 1967, (Façade). 2.23.17. This is a collagraph by the artist Eppink. The artist used a subtracting method to make the collagraph, or it looks like the artist used subtraction. I like this piece because of the detail and the fact that it looks like a stained glass window or a hallway.

The Unbearable Lightness of Being. Comics. Love, woman, man. Humor
By: Irina Bast. “The Unbearable Lightness of Being" 1.23.17. "When all you did was ask her how her day went." I find this piece hilarious because of the way the man is confused and the women is just saying yes or no like he did something but he doesn't know what he did. This piece represents the view that men have about women when they just go on and on about different things, and I find it funny.
By: Belkis Ayón. Untitled (A CHALLENGE). 1996. 2.23.17. This is a collagraph. This collagraph has texture on it and it looks like the person cut out images and added to it to make the lines and imprinted in other places. I enjoy this collagraph because of the texture to it.
Water color collage! I made a few water color paintings in the "tye-dye" style, and cut into random triangles. Use modge podge to attach to a canvas. A cheap project with a beautiful outcome! Thanks to Kate Bullen for the inspiration

https://www.nationalgallery.org.uk/paintings/claude-seaport-with-the-embarkation-of-saint-ursula Seaport with the Embarkation of Saint Ursula. 9-23-16 I pinned this peice primarily due to visual appeal, the focal point is defined very well and the contrasting and contradicting colours make for a very refined well constructed peice
Jean Honoré Fragonard | A Woman with a Dog | 1769. 1.23.17. "When you get a new dog but it's ugly as heck so you look for someone to take it off your hands." I stumbled upon this painting that I find absolutely hysterical, The seductive eyes, the half-smile, the way the dog is looking at the beautiful women, what is not funny about this.
Philadelphia Museum of Art - Collections Object : Center Ring #1 1/23/17: I chose to pin this funny mixed media piece because of the very busy and vibrant aspects. I found it funny how the clowns and figures look abnormal and weird. The animal looks like it is supposed to be an elephant to be intimating a circus however some parts of the piece are funny because of the weird and craziness.
https://www.nationalgallery.org.uk/paintings/canaletto-the-stonemasons-yard Bathers at La Grenouillère 9-23-16 I pinned this peice because I enjoyed it's cool colour scheme and the texture of the water, the analogous palette produced by the green and blue are visually pleasing especially in contrast to the bright characters and wooden docks
