Over the moon

My friend wants me to try to recreate this painting as a decoration for her wedding. The problem is that neither of us have any idea who the artist is/where the image came from. Can you help? Also, it would help me out immensely if I had access to a higher quality image to work from.

Alternatives to thick acrylic gel?

I'm looking for possible cheaper alternatives/ substitutes for heavy acrylic gels for my paintings. The stuff I get at the art store is a little pricy for the amounts I like to use. I'm hoping there's some kind of (industrial?) paste out there that would act similarly. (basically, a thick medium that I can 'etch' then let dry)

Need inspiration for my next work of... well... something.

I'm not an artist by any stretch, but I recently discovered that I kind of like painting with acrylics-- and I've badly needed a hobby for a while now. But I also need inspiration and so I'm looking for images that I can use as examples, but that I can make my own. For example, I really liked this and so my very first (and so far only) painting was this (1,2). I'm liking very geometrical or line-based repeating patterns that are either brightly multi-colored or monochromatic designs, but even though I have rulers and compasses, I also have a very unsteady hand so the design has to be kind of forgiving. Can you help me find images or sites where I might be able to find an idea for my next one? [more inside]

Where in Montmartre (Paris) did Maurice Utrillo stand when he painted this view of the "Maquis"?

My late grandfather painted an interpretation of one of Maurice Utrillo's depictions of the "Maquis" of Montmartre, in Utrillo's time a very poor area of the well-known Paris neighbourhood. Which Utrillo work did my granddad use as a blueprint, and where exactly was Utrillo's vantage point? [more inside]

How can I collect old, accurately represented painting on a budget?

I'd like to start collecting art. I know, collect what you love - and I intend to. This is for my home, though if the pieces also have financial value down the road, so much the better. I really like older, typically Renaissance or Medieval portraits or action-filled landscapes (particularly those that feature animals (e.g. da Vinci's Lady with Ermine). As a non-expert with a budget of <$500-$2000, how do I go about buying interesting art without being fleeced? [more inside]

It is hard to forget a river of babies

This is a long shot, but I'm trying to identify a painting that I saw at the Philadelphia Museum of Art about 4 years ago. All I remember is that it was a large painting that looked like a forest scene - at first glance it looked simply like a river within the forest, but upon looking at it again, you can see that the river is made up of hundreds upon hundreds of babies. I've tried googling, and exploring the Philadelphia Museum of Art's webpage, but to no avail. I am hoping someone knows this crazy painting!

How to pick the right color

Where can I find good websites, books, magazines, etc. that explain the principles of picking good paint colors to use when painting rooms in my house? I tend to pick a color and paint the room, only to find that I don't really like the color. Are there design standards/rules (e.g. the rule of 3s for photography)?

Looking for a great essay on art.

I have repeatedly looked for it online but have had no success. Just curious to see if it is on the intertubes somewhere, thanks.
