Does The Group of Seven mean anything to you?

[image width=0]http://www.google.ca/search?q=Group+of+Seven+Paintings+pics&rlz=1C1GKLB_enCA645CA646&espv=2&biw=1600&bih=793&tbm=isch&tbo=u&source=univ&sa=X&ved=0ahUKEwiDv4zG2_vMAhXkKsAKHf6NBKMQsAQIGg[/image]

These paintings from the early 1900's predominantly of Canada's North in Ontario are among my favourite outdoor paintings by this group of painters called "The Group Of Seven," including Tom Thompson, although the latter was not formally a part of the Group, though he essentially began it.

I have visited the McMichael Art Gallery several times over the years, which houses many of the paintings you will see on the link provided above.

Which fine artist's work do you appreciate?

Please... Come and enjoy them with me--

I don't think I'd heard of them until you mentioned them earlier.
I know more now after reading a WIKI article.

Nice looking group of paintings.... Some more realistic than others.

Favorites?.... You just asked one of the most dreaded of questions; at least for me.
I have a very hard time choosing favorites of any kind.
Something is a favorite, until the next thing passes in front of my eyes. I'm all over the place when it comes to "favorites".
I couldn't name a painter as a favorite, anymore than I could name a musician as my favorite.
I can say something is one of my favorites, but we're really talking among thousands of favorites.

Oh.... This I can say with confidence... Ketchup is a favorite food of mine.

You're question reminded me that I was going post a Q on how to post pictures.
I'm easily distracted.

Firstly, they have to come from your computer; not a website.
In other words, if you see a picture on the web that you want to post on Carbonet, you have to save it to your computer first.
Then the site copies that image and stores it on the site's server.

I'll put a Q together on that.

That's a good idea. I'm sure they look great as mats. Using them as hot pads would probably ruin them.

Take care of your tummy and lighten up on the spicy food. I pretty much stay away from it these days myself.

Alright, I confess: I cheated a bit and looked up more Group of Seven prints, as the ones I really liked weren't in that collection, hehe!



And those 3 you liked are in a collection of 6 (I posted the other 3 too) that are professionally laminated with a border on them and cork on the back, which I use under glass plates for meals. They are each around 8"x 10" in size, so not too large. They could be used as hot plates, but i use them as very small place mats of sorts.

Ah-- I'm off to a warm bath to feel better-- ciau!

I especially like the first 3 and 5th from the bottom.
I don't think I saw some of those in my grouping when I clicked your link before.
I'm not sure, but I think results can vary from computer to computer, and from browser to browser as well. Like say if I'm using Firefox and you Explorer, for example.
Even if the same browser is used, it's possible results could vary based on past searches. When it comes to images, it seems the more times I've done a search for the same thing, the more results show up.
I set my alarm, so I should be there.

I imagine the scabs on your arms have all healed up by now -- hope they didn't go through the 'itchy stage' -- not a nice stage of healing, lol.

i guess I'll talk to you tomorrow morning at 11am if that works for you -- I haven't gone to chat yet, but will now.

I quite like the paintings you had chosen as well, though not your second from the bottom selection of yours.
I had seen most of the others, but like them all.

You found very good reproductions, I'm impressed.

Here are some of my favourite Group of Seven prints-- I did double the last one -- I had two versions of it, but it looks like I copied the same version twice.

Six prints of the A. J. Casson paintings are professionally on 8 x 10 prints with a cork backing and we use them by puttin plates on top of them.

They're also meant for use as hot pads, but I don't wish to ruin them so they'll not have hot dishes on them.

I think the ones with the vibrant blues would be the hardest to place in a home.
The others would work in just about any room.
Ha! At least in my house..... A lot of Earth colors 'round here.
Two I like for their "Pointyness". (of the Trees and shrubs)
Got little scabs on my arms right now from the pointyness of my trees.

Hope ya got some good sleep.
Heading out to the yard in a few here.

Beauty, K--, thanks for the virtual tour--

The lone pine on a rocky island is probably the best known one, having been reproduced with varying degrees of success on everything from T-shirts to mugs in these parts.

Now I will have to 'make good' on my promise!

(I'll try, but not tonight -- I haven't gotten through all of your responses yet -- think I need to get some sleep while I still can fall asleep tonight.

Night for now,
Triss

I put 10 that I like together.

I'm thinking the page may display differently for you and I.
They're in no particular order in terms of like the best.


They're in the alphabetical order of my folder.

Deal.... I'll go back and take a look.

Hmm, yeah, I know what you mean about favourites--
Then how about which ones do you like from the collection?

You could point them out by saying,
"The one 3 rows down & 5 in from the left."

I have no idea which one that would be, but if you point out which ones you like, I'll point out the ones I've always been drawn to.

Deal?
