Emerald stone.


http://www.able2know.com/forums/images/avatars/gallery/Misc/161.gif.......... Well what do you know, the pic disappeared, as pics sometimes do after posting. I just thought it would be fun to share my silly, innocent, little finding.

Tryagain..the gem Laughing

I found that by mistake.

That photo shows why the emerald is my favorite stone, but why is it on this thread, you said by accident?

BTW, I too think the little drawing is charming.

Another point. Kickycan says he knows next to nothing about art but likes it. Imagine the perverse reverse, someone who knows alot about art but doesn't like it.

I think the pic in the gem resembles tryagains avatar. Do you see it, or am I just plain crazy? Very Happy

I happened upon it accidently as I was looking for the hardness qualities of gems. I decided to play a "find a picture in a stone game" while I had the page in front of me. The shapes and shades in the gem pics had a story to tell... (it dosen't take much for me to keep myself entertained)

I put it on this thread for a lack of a better place.

As far as perverse reverse, I feel there is no accounting for taste, especially when it comes to art.
For instance, "The Scream"...I wouldn't hang that in my house if you had a gun to my head, that is one of the ugliest paintings I have ever seen (i can be closed minded at times) And I don't find the artists (what's his name?) skill or approach to art anything to write home about.

I'm not saying I'm right, that's just my view point, to each his own.

There must be hundreds of threads on a2k, I don't think I have enough time in the day to read all of them, I can barely keep up with the current ones.
As it is, if I'm on a thread that has a topic I know next to nothing about, I usually have to read and re-read many posts (slow learner) and I'm constantly interrupted, oh well.

Oh well, then. But if you're interested in several views on Munch's work, with some photos included, go look at the link I found for the thread.

Osso, I followed that thread when it started., I would have commented but what I had thought about it had already been stated by others.

I gravitate towards 14th-18th century art, it's like I'm stuck at that, (gotta love the 3 masters) but I don't mind, as a matter of fact, I like being this way :-)

I have this bias towards Sienese paintings, Renaissance paintings in general, and painters like Courbet myself, although I've opened up to a lot of other art over the years. I didn't mean to natter at you..

I didn't take it that way at all, I appreciate your input.

I wish my mind was a tad more open and trained as yours, but I'm a tough cookie to crack.

I look at myself as a road under constant constuction, never to be finished.

I'm afraid my road has developed pot holes. But I think all of ours are heading in the right direction.

Funny you say that. I have been putting off going to my spiritual meetings for months, I finally went friday night, (quite proud of myself, figured God must be also). On the way home, I hit a pot hole and blew out my front right tire! Shocked Laughing
If that wasn't bad enough, I made the sound decision to drive a 16th of a mile home on the rim, (instead of leaving it on the side of the road, (it would have blocked the plows), main st. and trudging on foot through a snow storm) . <shakes head at self>

My dad took pity on me and not only fixed the flat, but replaced both front tires with new ones. I wasn't expecting that.

I can fall in to a pile of poop, and come out smelling like a rose.

It's a gift! Very Happy

If one accepts the smooth part of the road, we also need to accept the pot holes as well (just try not to aim for them :-) ) They are there for good reason, and they alway's turn out good, eventually. My pot hole spurned compassion in my dad, and he acted upon it, that's good.

Come to think of it, I could use new tires on the BACK! ...... Shocked

<go away...evil twin inside me Laughing >

My first fun find Very Happy


http://www.able2know.com/forums/images/avatars/gallery/Misc/161.gifhttp://www.gemfix.com/images/stones/emerald/emerald65.jpg

This is exactly what is stated on the website I found this gem on-

EMERALD is the birthstone for the month of May.

Please note: EMERALDS are one of the most difficult gemstones to capture properly in digital images. Particularly many of the Columbian emeralds with their intense "stop light" green color with a bluish tint, Shocked are impossible to properly show in these images. Each emerald shown below looks much, much better in person than in these pictures. Also, keep in mind that the images below are several times enlarged which can be comparable to looking at the stones through magnification.
Many of the inclusions visible in the images are not nearly as noticeable with the naked eye. Laughing

How to learn to draw or paint
I don't know if I'll be allowed to post this link, but there is a wonderful online resource for just this kind of thing:

Another option: you could be in a workshop setting which is much less expensive than private lessons. These are fast paced & intensive - a lot of fun, too!

Here's a link to a great, fun, teacher -
