Robert Lyn Nelson, 1955 | Magic realism painter

Robert Lyn Nelson is an American artist known for his paintings of marine wildlife, particularly those in his "Two Worlds" style, which simultaneously shows life above and below the surface of the sea.

Artistic career

Nelson moved to Hawaii when he was eighteen years old.
According to Nelson, the turning point in his life and his career occurred when he encountered a group of whales while surfing off Lahaina, Hawaii.

"In learning to ride the waves, I also learned to respect the ocean...to feel its pulse with all five of my senses, and to feel its spirit at an extra-sensory level. It was a blend of magic and realism that I wanted to communicate in my paintings", says Nelson.

La Legge di Murphy: "I computer sono inaffidabili, ma gli uomini ancora di più!"

Dalla Murfologia Applicata alla Progettazione | Capitolo 3

Legge di Osborn
Le variabili non mutano mai, le costanti sì.

Prima legge delle modifiche
Meglio conosciuta col nome di Legge dell'Adesso me lo dicono!
Qualsiasi informazione che comporti un cambiamento nel progetto sarà trasmessa al progettista dopo - e soltanto dopo - che tutti i disegni sono stati completati

Corollario
In casi semplici, che presentino una soluzione ovviamente giusta e una ovviamente sbagliata, è spesso più saggio scegliere quella sbagliata, in modo da aver già pronta la conseguente modifica.

Gabriele Münter | Expressionist painter

Gabriele Münter (19 February 1877 – 19 May 1962) was a German expressionist painter who was at the forefront of the Munich avant-garde in the early 20th century.
She studied and lived with the painter Wassily Kandinsky and was a founding member of the expressionist group Der Blaue Reiter.

Early life

Münter was born to upper middle-class parents in Berlin on 19 February 1877.
Her family supported her desires to become an artist. Her father died in 1886. She began to draw as a child.
As she was growing up, she had a private tutor. In 1897, at the age of twenty, Münter received artistic training in the Düsseldorf studio of artist Ernst Bosch and later at the Damenschule (Women's School) with artist Willy Spatz.
By the time she was 21 years old, both of her parents had died and she was living at home with no occupation.
In 1898, she decided to take a trip to America with her sister to visit extended family. They stayed in America for more than two years, mainly in the states of Texas, Arkansas, and Missouri; six sketchbooks survive from Münter's period in America, depicting images of people, plants and landscapes.
