The End Of The Line

Photo source: phil toselli's photostream
If any of us have art out there on flickr and do a tag search for art to see how far down the line it lays, we may be surprised. When I searched mine, however, I was not surprised. I found my first one on page 25. That's really not too bad considering that under the search phrase I used there are 102 pages.

In reality though, this post isn't about me at all. This experience just got me thinking about the fact that I never go to the end of the search to see what it offers for my viewing pleasure. Therefore, I am going to bring you some highlights every now and again about what I'm finding from the back to the front. I'm going to pick out one picture from each page.

Just so that everyone understands, I used the tag search of mid-century art on flickr, and this first segment will be a pick from pages 101.

The image above comes from phil toselli's photostream. Later I plan of finding out more about this "David Wiedman" as well. If I find anything good. I will post about it.

Explore away, young Jem! :D

michael robertson said... the subject here, but I just want to say WOW! thanks alot for featuring me in your blog! Imagine my surprise when I paid you a visit, and saw my name and my bear up there. I appreciate it very much. I'm planning to start a new blog in the near future where I'll be showing my paintings, collage and silkscreen work. You might like some of it-it's nothing like my illustration stuff. It's mostly abstract, and very modern. I'm thinking of maybe showing some pieces from my collection, too, so stay tuned...and thanks again!

M.R. Thanks for visiting my site. I feel privileged to have such talented artists as yourself viewing my blog and enjoying my art. I REALLY want to see your abstract stuff as well, so, keep us updated on when your other blog will be started.

I will be doing a lot of sculptures and wood art in the next few months, so I hope you like it as well.

Oooh, look at Jem, hobnobbing with the cool artists! (Good for you!)

I love this idea of going to the end of the line, the last page! Sometimes when I've done a Google search on something and gotten a gazillion results, I've wondered how obscure the references must be on page 3657. Your idea of doing a tag search on Flickr is much more interesting, though. I think you'll find all sorts of wonderful surprises, so keep it up and share with us.
