Go West, Young Man (or Young Woman)

We are not saying who, but some of our fathers are movie lovers, with an emphasis on Westerns. Some of our dad are into The Duke, and walk around saying things like, “Come on over here, Pilgrim, and have something to eat.” We also have the Clint Eastwood loving...

Historical Photos as Art

Although we do not often quote an Indiana Jones film (although we probably should start), in “Raiders of the Lost Ark” Belloq, the French archeologist, tells Indiana Jones that “All your life has been spent in pursuit in archaeological relics. Inside the Ark are...

Martini, Not Shaken or Stirred

When you think of a classy drink, one that you see in photos in bars or restaurants where the beautiful or famous people are sitting around smoking long filtered cigarettes and laughing at something that someone said? Or perhaps your taste in sophistication runs to...

Artist Profile — Az Jackson

Have you ever wanted to quit your job, travel around the world, and take pictures? Sounds great, doesn’t it? We would love to be able to do that, but we have to limit our travel to vacation time here at Fine Art America. Not all of us can afford to travel around the...

Life Is A Pattern

Have you ever noticed that life is a series of patterns? We have noticed here at Fine Art America that our lives tend to revolve around patterns. For example, we have discovered that weddings come in stages: we attended lots of weddings in our 20s, and got to be...

Home Theater Art

  It’s been a long, hot summer so far, and we’ve been watching a lot of movies and television from the comfort of our living rooms. Which got us to thinking: why not use art to decorate our home theaters and living rooms? So with that in mind, we have curated a...

Contest: Watermedia Showcase

Are you mesmerized by Monet’s work and never get tired of his water lilies or ponds? Have a talent for watercolors? Dying to get recognized? Thinking of fame, glory and money--well, at least the fame and glory part? You may want to think about showing off your skills...

The Celebrated Work of Bosch

Hieronymus Bosch lived and died around 600 years ago, so you would think that perhaps his influence would no longer be felt. However, the argument can be made that Bosch’s influence is still felt, and the sheer artistry and scale of his paintings has not been able to...

The Enso Circle in Art

  In our society today, there is a lot of tension and stress, and we are all looking for a little extra peace in our lives. Here at Fine Art America, we are longing for peace wherever we can find it. Which is what makes the Enso circle such a lovely addition to our...

Remembering 9/11

  Do you remember where you were? We don’t think there was anyone alive that day over the age of 6 who doesn’t remember where they were. When tragedies happen, they usually happen on a local scale. A hurricane comes ashore, or a tornado hits a town...and while we feel...

Storms and Art

Do you know what time of the year it is? Of course we all know it’s summer, deep in the middle of summer, but for those of us on the East Coast or the Gulf Coast, we keep one eye on the summer fun, and one eye on information from the tropics. Yup, it’s hurricane...

An Ode to Short Sleeve T-Shirts

We know, we know – short sleeves are coming to an end in the near future. The “Dog Days” of summer are slowly coming to an end. We know all of you are tired of the heat, humidity, and here in the Northeast, the constant lines of thunderstorms moving through this...
