7. I wish there was an easy way

 

To follow a DUer. It makes me sad when I wonder how many fantastic art essays I have missed.

9. Same here

 

For most of my life I have been grounded in math and technology- heck, I work in flight simulation. A few years ago I had to take an art history class, and I dreaded it. It ended up being the funnest class I ever took. With this, and CTYankee's posts, I have tried to expand my knowledge in the world of art. CaliforniaPeggy has gotten me into poetry. I cannot believe how much I have been changed since stumbling in here during the run up to the Iraq war. We have a lot of super people here, and you're one of them

11. Back at you

I took Art in high school because it was the only co-ed course (hahahahha) and loved it, but they only promoted British artists. I love our planet's art. I sure loved CTYankee's Friday evening Art history lessons (I wrote Connecticut Yankee - still laughing). I have learned a lot at DU from you knowledgeable folks.

of taking art lessons, but don't know where to begin.

15. Yes, she has such depth of knowledge.

Always fun though to remember what I had once seen, to see it again with new depth and to learn about so many artistic works I haven't encountered.

21. I just wrote a letter to all of you and posted it here in GD

http://www.democraticunderground.com/10028124707

Hope it expresses what words alone cannot say completely, but what is in my heart for you wonderful DUers who have supported me for all these years. You hold me up.

Grazie mille, tesori!
