# 39 Other interesting places: part two

Where is your suggestion?  At the risk of sounding like Mike Rowe, whom do you have to suggest to add to the list “Other interesting places.”

Two more were suggested to me just after I posted #38 “Other interesting places.”  I have sat with one of these artist.  The other has a blog which I have followed for a while.  Good people to spend time with.  I trust you will enjoy their work as well.

The first is John Philbin Dolan.  http://www.philbininc.com/

John is a painter.  He is working in pastels and beginning to move into oil.  We have one of his pastels, a cowboy, hanging in our home.  I am sure you will appreciate his skill and execution.  It has been great to talk with John about art and the goal of art.  Even the conversation on the meaning of art is a “lost art” in America these days.  We both agree that “art is not in the eye of the beholder.”  An idea open to more conversation later.

The second artist is “Yaakov.”  I have never met him, but his work, as displayed in his blog is pretty neat.  I like his lines and craftsmanship.  Check him out.

The other artist is Yaakov.  http://fbyaakov.wordpress.com/ Among other things he makes furniture.  And he muses about wood working and art.
