Who painted this?

Painting identification: Who painted this? A friend saw it at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in NYC. He said it was a 19th century American painting hanging in a visible storage area and not in a regular gallery and that it wasn't labeled. Thanks!

How do you paint leather?

I'm turning a small vintage samsonite leather suitcase into a baby travel kit that will stay in my sister's truck. I know how to get the lingering smells out, and how to replace the liner. I also figured out how to clean leather. But what type of paint is best to use on leather? I want to add some decorative elements with a baby theme to the outside and I'm not sure if acrylics are okay.

Name that landscape painter

What American (?) naturalist landscape painter am I thinking of? I took this photo in Ketchikan, Alaska while on vacation last week. It reminds me of a painter who painted grand American landscapes with lots of lush detailed realistic trees (and mountains), maybe in the past 100 years. I feel like I'd have seen his work on posters or calendars, or promoting US conservation groups. Any ideas?

Please help identify this painting

This is a screencap from an episode of the "Ray Bradbury Theater" series from the 1980's. I tried using the Google Goggles app on my phone, both with the picture on my TV and on my computer monitor, but it can't scan it all the way. When it does come close, it can identify it as some sort of iconography, but that's it. Does anybody have any idea who the artist might be, or the title of the painting itself? [more inside]

How do I write "From Life" in Latin or French?

I'd like to add a Latin or French phrase meaning "from life" (i.e., short for "painted from life") to my signatures on paintings to differentiate my work from artists who rely on photos and video monitors instead of live models for their work. I'd like it to be pithy and idiomatic, and so I'm somewhat reluctant to rely on Google Translate . . .

I love this artist! If only I knew who it was...

Artist trivia time! I love this painting! Does anyone know who the artist is? It's a painting with a sculpture of similarly-shaped heads next to it...but I just saw it randomly online and haven't the first clue of who it might be. Has anyone seen anything like it before? (other than on Easter Island)
