IMAGE OF THE WEEK
Alfredo de Batuc
Alfredo de Batuc, Poder, 1990, acrylic on canvas, 30" x 40". Click here for larger image and more information. For anyone visiting LA, or for those of you who live here but haven’t made the effort, Watts Towers should be at the top of your bucket list. If you can’t get there in person, Bud Goldstone and Arloa Paquin Goldstone’s The Los Angeles Watts Towers, is a great way to experience the towers and learn Rodia’s story. The book is richly illustrated with more than 100 color and b&w photos, including historic images of Rodia working on the towers.
Wow! I can't believe how many of you responded to the call for entries for RED! Thank you! It wasn't easy narrowing it down, but I have chosen 15 images to share with you. Entries from women out-numbered those from men by an almost 3-1 ratio and that is reflected in the final selections. Entries were all submitted by email and were chosen by how they read digitally.
So without further ado, I present you RED!

Colors are different at night. The darkness changes them. Beautiful stars help us to see Heaven and our spiritual side with greater clarity when the work of the day is done. -Beryl Brenner
