Daily Photo - Chihuly in Space
I know you guys don't get tired of the Chihuly pieces, and neither do I! In fact, I like this one so much that I use it as my desktop wallpaper.
Just as much thought goes into lighting these as it does the creation. I always wonder if he has the "lighting scenario" in mind when forming the piece and its colors. Or maybe, it's just so awesome and naturally formed that it looks good under any kind of light. Heck, it would probably even look good in a 7-11 at 1 AM when all the pasty-lonely people stumble in for a Big Gulp and a Snickers. I can say this because I am often one of those people.
By the way, you all are free to use my images as desktop wallpaper, for fun, on your blogs, etc. That is the beauty of the Creative Commons license. If you are going to use them for any commercial purposes whatsoever, contact licensing at stuckincustoms.com -- the team there will take care of you.
Charging the iPad Problems
Having trouble charging your iPad? I've updated my HyperMac Review a bit with information on how I am using it to keep things charged on the road. My Macbook Pro just ain't cuttin' it!
I also have much greater luck when plugging it directly into the wall with the plug that was included. In just a few hours, the iPad is full. The USB connection to my new MacBook Pro just charges it way too slow! I think we have all gotten used to how fast the iPhone charges... and the iPad is just a different beast. I will keep testing the this battery thing and let you know how many charges it can supply... I'll update the HyperMac review here when I figure it out. Anyway, there are two options for your charging the iPad problems - hope they help!

The Walter Wickiser Gallery, located in the prestigious Fine Art Building in Chelsea – located at 210 Eleventh Avenue, Suite 303, New York, NY 10001 – was established in 1992. As the son of artist and art educator Ralph Wickiser – who was former the Chairman of the graduate art program at Pratt University from 1962-1978 – Walter Wickiser was born and raised in the American art world amongst internationally renowned modern artists including Franz Kline, Jacob Lawrence, George McNeil, Stephen Pace and Phillip Pearlstein. Friendship, at a very early age, with the Milton Avery and Yasuo Kuniyoshi families provided a special mentoring and education which proved very beneficial to his career as an art dealer.
Walter Wickiser’s career as an art dealer formally began in 1990 in Soho, NY, when he became the first director of the first gallery to be established in the United States, from main land China. This led to establishing his primary direction as a gallerist to exhibit work by both American and Asian-American painters, as well as artists from China, Japan and Korea. It has always been the focus of the Wickiser Gallery to create a visual dialogue between these cultures, and simultaneously remind us of the ability of the arts to transcend cultural boundaries. Early in the history of the Wickiser Gallery in 1993, the United States State Department and Art For Embassy’s Program became interested in exhibiting Wickiser’s choice of Asian artist in United States Embassy’s in Seoul, Korea, Manila, Philippines, Quatar, Bucharest, Romania and Cypress, to name a few. Currently, Wickiser’s collection is being exhibited in the United States Embassy in Moscow. Both the Clinton and Bush administrations have invited Wickiser to the White House.
Clients and visitors to the gallery have included Woody Allen, Betsy Bloomingdale, Kim Catrall, Leo Castelli, Michael Douglas, Alex Katz, Phillip Pearlstein, Sally Michel Avery, Sarah Kuniyoshi, Ted Koppel, Jacklyn Kennedy Onassis, Geraldo Rivera, Sam LeFrak and Paul Volker.
The Wickiser Gallery has received numerous reviews in ARTnews, Art In America and many other internationally recognized publications. Work by many of the gallery’s artists have been exhibited at American museums including the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Whitney Museum of American Art, the High Museum of Art in Georgia, the Dallas Museum of Art in Texas, and the New Britain Museum of American Art in Connecticut.
