Message: Hi Folks,

Congratulations to Susan Maxwell Schmidt, currently in the Featured Artist Spotlight. Susan's artwork demonstrates sensitivity, wonderful imagination, and an extensive skill set. Please stop by the Home Page and enjoy some of my favorites from her galleries, which you can now find posted there. Perhaps you could take a moment to promote some of her art. There are so many deserving individuals of the spotlight feature, and I hope to continue draw attention to more fine artists in the weeks to come

Good luck with your art.

Cheers,

This is a fascinating article on creating an algorithm to find beautiful images gone unnoticed by the general populace: http://www.technologyreview.com/view/537741/computational-aesthetics-algorithm-spots-beauty-that-humans-overlook/

As the article implies, there is still hope for all we undiscovered artistic geniuses! ;)
