    'Cuz I don't have a bazillion dollars. ;)
    Should I have included the word "original" in the (mess of a) title of the thread?

    A poster size picture of Nathan East and Chuck Rainey standing together. Guess you can photoshop anything but that ain't the same.

    bonestell 1. I would like the original of this; Saturn as seen from Titan, by Chesley Bonestell. If you've ever seen any Sci-Fi movies from the '50s or ''60s, (like Forbidden Planet, or When Worlds Collide - or even some Star Trek episodes) you've seen his work. A well known architect when he turned to art, his pictures are almost unique in that the perspective in them is exact. The horizon is where it really would be; and if you were standing where the scene is pictured - this is what you would see. When the first astronauts to visit the moon came back, they said that the series of lunar pictures that Bonestell did for NASA were exactly what it was like, standing on the moon. He even got the view of Earth right...:)

    I love his work and have a coffee table book of his art. I have a repro of the "Saturn as Seen from Titan" on my wall.

    Hokey perhaps, but I'm a big fan of Roger Dean. I had a reproduction poster of this on my wall when I was growing up, for many years.


    I miss it, and don't know what happened to it.

    I nearly snaffled this set of prints on ebay - American Dream, by Brett Whitely - a few years ago.


    Painted in '68-'69, more than meets the eye, freaky, and huge ta boot. They were still boxed, as new, a very limited edition, officially sanctioned by the Whitely estate. Still a bit sad that I let them slide but happy to still have the wall space :smug:

    I have The Adoration of the Bass Guitar, by El Greco with a little help from Photoshop. It is in the music room which doubles as a shrine to blasphemy of various kinds.

    A really energetic Jackson Pollock would be good, if overwhelming, in our dining room. My wife even thinks so sometimes.

  14. We love this one and have it in the living room..


    But it was very hard to take this one down to create the space..

    I'm a painter so my walls already have a bunch of paintings on them :D

    Degas' Interior (The Rape) is one my favorite paintings- I'd probably choose that or one of Sargent's street scenes

    I was telling my daughter the other day that you can't trust photos or prints of paintings because they vary so much- you need to see them in person to know what they really look like.

    An Andrew Wyeth painting from his Helga pictures called Daydream...I've been in love with it since I first saw it.

    I believe I might get in trouble if I posted it here....So I didn't.

    We have one piece of art on our walls. It's a black and white picture my wife took of the Cornish–Windsor Covered Bridge connecting New Hampshire to Vermont over the Connecticut River, from the Cornish side.
    We had it printed at Costco, which was not very expensive. We had it professionally framed, which was very expensive. Worth it though. We get many compliments on it.
