Artist Milton Avery (1885-1965)

Artist Milton Avery was an American born artist whose first solo exhibition was in 1944. Shown and collected worldwide, Mr. Avery was elected a fellow of the American Academy of Arts & Sciences in 1963. One of his best known works was his “Green Sea”, painted with oils on canvas.

Art critic Hilton Kramer described Mr. Avery as “…without question our greatest colorist…Among his European contemporaries, only Matisse…produced a greater achievement in this respect.”

Nappy Time (shown above) was painted with a Full Sail LTD limited edition lager from Full Sail Brewing Company in Hood River, Oregon.

Artist Henri Matisse (1869-1954)

644 nappy time web1000Henri Matisse was a well known French painter, sculptor and print maker who began painting still life’s and landscapes in 1981 then moved to impressionism in 1986. His first solo exhibition was in 1906. An oil painter, he changed styles to Fauvism (bright often dissonant colors unrelated to the realistic colors of the subject) and pointillism. In his later years he made collages.

Matisse is probably best known for his nudes painted between 1907 and 1910. His “Yellow Curtain”, painted in 1915 and his 1953 “The Snail” are also very well known. His influence in the art world was very great and he continues to have a strong influence on art today.

Nappy Time (shown above) was painted in a Matisse style with a very good tasting Full Sail LTD limited edition lager from Full Sail Brewing Company in Hood River, Oregon. There are at least 3 other paintings on this site that are also painted in a Matisse style.



Today is an Official Napping Day!

644 nappy time web1000According to the Days of the Year website (www.daysoftheyear.com), today is official Napping Day!! So, after you wake up and before you celebrate this long overdue event, call your boss ( but don’t wake him/her) to inform your boss that, contrary to your usual dozing and daydreaming, today you will be observing this solemn event as part of your civic and patriotic duty! Obviously, you will need to pick your time and place (like not while driving dangerous heavy equipment or while in the middle of your performance review), such as during notoriously boring meetings, chats with co-workers, lunches and breaks.

Of interest, from all I can tell there is no formal time limit on either the amount or duration of napping that constitutes observance of this most sacred day! Therefore, use your good judgement and don’t get caught oversleeping your bounds!

As part of your observance you may wish to study Nappy Time (and its story) by clicking on the Nappy Time print image in the Modern/Abstract Art drop down menu under Shop Our Art and read the story which accompanies the print. Nappy Time was created with a tasty Full Sail LTD limited edition lager from Full Sail Brewing Company (Hood River, Oregon), of course, during a short break from napping.
