Featured Art

Since changing to the current format, I have used digital reproductions of some works of art as “featured” images for the home page. The format, a WordPress theme called “Expound,” does not permit identification of a featured image. In order to identify the images and make them available after they have been removed from the home page, I have created this page. Images here have been linked to external sites about the artists or works when possible (click the image; the linked site should open in a new tab), and links to the posts which the images originally accompanied are provided as well.

Having begun to embed art/music videos in some posts, I will include those here as well.
