Hi, I'm back from a rainy Maastricht. So no time to make a painting today. However I have made some nice rainy pictures which are an inspiration for an ArtRage work later this week.

Now. A new gallery in the MOARA | Museum Of Artrageous Art is opened. One of my paintings along with my personal selection of some great works to honour the founders of this biggest museum of the world (correct me if I'm wrong). Credits to OrianeLima, Byroncallas, Coops and Briex. Urban photography by Jascha Hoste, NL.

Enjoy it!

P.s. I shall include this image in the Orianelima's MOARA post

Briex: I love the tribute. As coops said, very tastefully done. It's a very inventive setting. Your execution is great.

To your point about the founders and your "correct me if I'm wrong" query: Oriane is the principle founder of the MOARA. It was his idea, he introduced it and maintained it for many weeks, and most all the initial tributes were conceived and executed by him. Oriane is the MOARA's fountainhead.

After a number of weeks Coops (Katie) and gzairborne (Albert) began contributing excellent tribute rooms and in time took over most of the production of new rooms while Oriane more or less passed on the thread to the community. The contributions from Katie and Albert from that point forward were the lifeblood that gave the MOARA a second wind, a wind which continues to blow.

In all honesty, my single contribution was coining a name in a fleeting moment in a post that Oriane thought was fitting. He tried it out and it has stuck in one or more forms. This isn't modesty. I've been a champion of the thread like scores of other forum members, but the creative energy that has made MOARA what it is today are the generous efforts given by Oriane, Katie, and Albert. Albert's paintings are the ones that more appropriately belong in the slot that you so generously gave to me in the wonderful tribute above.

Meanwhile, it's fun watching the new blood you are bringing to the community museum. That thread is a treasure, designed for each of us to honor the others in our midst who inspire us with their creative contributions and good will. It's taken on a life of its own. Thank for your new contributions to it, and being part of the community that gives it energy and life. :)

Thanks Orianelima, coops and Byroncallas. Thanks for the details Byron, very informative. Sorry Albert, you deserve a gallery room from my hand aswell. Keep up the good work all and let's keep building the MOARA to preserve it for the future.
