Of course I do realize that posts like this one, or this one, or this one, where I say things like, ooh, I've discovered twitter or tumblr or instagram and aren't they cool, will very rapidly--if, indeed, they haven't already--date to the point of hilarity; not unlike a journal entry a pal of mine recently dug up from 1996 that included the sentence "I've gotten really into email lately--it's rad!" But nevertheless I must take this opportunity to sing the praises of another new-to-me web adventure: art.sy. A vast online resource of art images that can be filtered, sorted, searched, sliced, and diced a million different ways. Today I explored the "Abstract Expressionism" category, and was reminded how much I really, and I mean really dig Abstract Expressionism. It's rad.
