Irish Landscape - The 1950s and 1960s were the apogee in terms of Wirth-Miller's output of paintings. His work was much sought after, being bought by the young Queen Elizabeth and the interior designer David Hicks, who liked to make sure that his clients had a Wirth-Miller to complete the decor. He continued painting until the early 1970s. At that time he said that "his muse had left him". by olive

Anonymous, Portrait of Egon Schiele, 1915 | Schiele "was an Austrian painter. A protégé of Gustav Klimt, Schiele was a major figurative painter of the early 20th century. His work is noted for its intensity, and the many self-portraits the artist produced. The twisted body shapes and the expressive line that characterize Schiele's paintings and drawings mark the artist as an early exponent of Expressionism." by eve

The Chi-Lites are a Chicago-based smooth soul vocal quartet from the early 1970s. The group formed in the late 1950s when the Chanteurs (Record, Robert "Squirrel" Lester, and Clarence Johnson) teamed up with Marshall Thompson and Creadel "Red" Jones of the Desideros to form the Hi-lites. Noting that the name Hi-lites was already in use, it was changed to "Marshall and the Chi-Lites" in 1964. Johnson left later that year, and their name was subsequently shortened to The Chi-Lites. by essie

Emma Lindström - Cosmic Compositions 26-year-old painter Emma Lindström creates colorful swirls of awesomeness using a combination of acrylic and spraypaint.

Her paintings are nothing short of celestial — though the colors change piece to piece, she maintains the same galactic visuals that transcends our Earthly imaginations. by Martha Jean Sandy Crocker

Tullio Crali (1910- 2000) was an Italian artist associated with Futurism. A self-taught painter, he was a late adherent to the movement, not joining until 1929. He is noted for realistic paintings that combine "speed, aerial mechanisation and the mechanics of aerial warfare", though in a long career he painted in other styles as well. by jacklyn

❤There has been a great deal of interest recently in the use of natural repellents of insects. And for good reason: DEET, the most commonly used chemical-based insect repellent that is put on human skin is considered by some to be a toxic health risk. Plants that were more repellent to insects were more likely to survive, and so it is quite possible that the highly aromatic, insect repellent quality of plants evolved naturally over time.❤ by freida
