Virtual Gallery: "Acceptance"

“Acceptance,” a virtual gallery of small mixed-media watercolors by multi-talented artist David Normal, is being presented by the Community Media Center of Marin through December 31.

“Henry Miller wrote an essay on watercolor painting in which he exuberantly revels in his ineptitude as a watercolorist, frankly stating how he just didn’t give a damn how they turned out because he was having so much fun just being himself, accepting himself, and making a mess with the paints,” explains Normal. “My mind often turned to these sentiments of Miller’s, and [these] watercolors were made in a similar spirit. They are not just paintings. To me, they are the by-products of a spiritual evolution from egotistical insecurity to psychic self acceptance. And that is why I have titled the series, ‘Acceptance.’”

The big news: A federal appeals court on Tuesday struck down the Federal Communications Commission's Open Internet Order.
