Amazing Spray Paint Artist
| Wayne Gabaylo is an amazing spray paint artist located in Honolulu Hawaii in Kings Village.|
This is Art In Motion!
In 1990, he began experimenting in his dad?s garage and invented a unique way to paint using cans of spray paint. Using objects he found in his mom?s kitchen, the self-taught artist soon began combining them all together, (juggling and dancing) to the best of music! He calls his show ?Art-In-Motion,? and for the past several years has been performing and entertaining art lovers in Waikiki.

The rules are the same: a monster should appear only once on each row, column and region.
The Golden Age of Travel Posters
The 1920's and 1930's ushered in an unprecedented era of travel to exotic and romantic destinations. And nowhere was this more clearly expressed than in the travel posters of that time. The Los Angeles Public Library's collection of travel posters perfectly captures this era. With this exhibition, the Library shares its bounty with the public for the first time.

In the Footsteps of Vincent van GoghThis documentary traces the events of van Gogh?s final years and reveals his turbulent spirit. It is ablaze with the canvases he painted between 1888 and 1890 and draws on his prolific correspondence with his brother, Theo. In a vivid combination of Vincent?s words and images, and with stunning location footage, it brings to life his time in Arles; the period he spent in the asylum at Saint-Remy de Province; and his last weeks in Aucers-sur-Oise.
After watching this documentary you have a better understanding of the artist's feelings when he painted.
This streaming video takes 55 minutes.
Enjoy your sunday!

|One of my favorite classical pieces in an interesting animated format: |
Boléro by Maurice Ravel
You know, this piece has a slow, quiet beginning and builds up to a loud, spectacular climax, so turn up your sound.
Originally it was a screensaver. You can find it by ART2multimedia

Mouse About The House

Masterpieces of the Persian Painting
A collection of these masterpieces and dozens of pieces of Persian Paintings dating back to Timurid and Safavid eras?a collection that manifests exalted concepts and mysteries of the realities about mankind?is now being showcased at TMCA after a long period of oblivion.
Zaky Infant PillowYou know the drill. You?re putting your little one in his crib. He?s asleep ? or ALMOST asleep ? and you?re gently stroking his stomach or patting his bottom.
|You slowly stroke his tummy with your hand and rest your hand gently on his body until you feel the gentle breathing of him sleeping?Then?you move your hand ever so slightly, trying to move as slowly as possible so that you don?t wake your sleeping angel, and suddenly ? no matter how slowly or carefully you move -- wail!!! He wakes up?|
If you?ve ever wished for a ?hand? to leave behind so that your baby would feel as if you?ve never left the room, your prayers have been answered with the Zaky.
Zaky Infant Pillow - I'm not sure whether this helps ...
