      This issue features some works of art found on the net.
       
       
       
       
       
       
      Jerez the Clown
      Acrylic on canvas by Higgins
      Acquired from Todd Farm Flea Market by Scott Wilson

      A perfect depiction of pure evil in the guise of childhood's friend. This blending of big top themes with a piercing study of the dark side of human nature, elevates the well worn clown genre to a new and exhilarating level.
       

       
       
      Peter the Kitty
      Oil on board by Mrs. Jackson
      10.5"x7"
      Acquired from Salvation Army Thrift Store, Hyde Park by Scott Wilson

      Stirring in its portayal of feline angst. Is Peter hungry or contemplating his place in a hungry world? The artist has evoked both hopelessness and glee with his irrational use of negative space.

       
       
       
      Reclining Nude
      Oil on canvas by Unknown
      Acquired by Scott Wilson from trash

      The artist plays with the luminosity of skin where the sun never shines, and the grace and comfort of crossed legs in repose. We believe this may be a self-portrait, as Unknown, naked and proud, faces the fiery furnace.
       
       
       
      Dog
      Acrylic on canvas by Unknown
      Donated by Elizabeth and Sorn Poeckle, Copenhagen, Denmark

      A remarkable fusion of ski resort and wolf puppy -- stoical in his yellow-eyed silence, frozen beneath the ice-capped peak, Dog elequently challenges the viewer to rexamine old concepts of landscape.
       
       
       
       
       
      Two Trees in Love
      Acrylic on canvas by Julie Seelig
      Donated by Sally Seelig, the artist's mother

      A heartening painting which makes up for lack of realism with a surplus of symbolism. The cloud caught in the branches of the most prominent deciduous confirms the artist's vision of a world where dreams can be captured and landscapes tamed, if you only try hard enough.
