Monovita magazine has a nice profile of one of my favorite painters, Amy Crehore. (Shown here: "Wild Cat Fever.")
The garmentless women in Crehore’s paintings exude a lovely innocence with a hint of deviance. The distinction that sets this surrealist painter apart from her predecessors is that unlike the stiff, posed women present in art throughout the centuries, Crehore’s women are playful, socializing with various animals and pierrots.

“I guess I am hooked on painting nude women now. It’s an archetype of beauty and represents naturalness. It’s a classic motif throughout art history, yet most nudes were posed,” Crehore said. “My nudes are actually doing things, and they are imaginary. They are very comfortable without clothes. It’s hard to paint clothes anymore.”

RECEPTIVENESS to new technologies often seems related to age. For example, more 13-year-olds than 63-year-olds understand phrases like “Waz ^?” and “N2MH.” (In case you’re over 13, those expressions are cellphonese for, “What’s up?” and “Not too much here.”)

Cancer and Virgo

Cancer and Virgo

Virgo, the Mutable Virgin and Cancer, the Cardinal Crab make a fabulous combination. You have an instant rapport that will lead to an enduring and satisfying match. Virgo appreciates your ability to provide a secure family life, yet you both are concerned with the nurturing and wellbeing of others. Turn your caring sides towards each other and you will turn your shared dreams into reality.

The sexual attraction is high and can be deeply passionate, but Virgo is skeptical of florid declarations of love. You both have strong feelings, although your Mercury-ruled partner is very fond of analysing things that sometimes you would prefer remained gloriously unspoken. Words are the way to Virgo's heart, so make sure you keep up a good flow of communication.

You like to be in charge, Cancer, despite your fluctuating moods, and the Virgin's talent for consultation and the practical exchange of ideas can help you stay balanced and productive. You can truly blossom with your Virgin's steadfast support, but do not take it for granted. The Virgin loves to serve, but is easily miffed. Remember that Virgo will soon have analysed all your weak points and has a cutting tongue that can make mincemeat of your tender sensitivities. You have a wonderful, lunar sense of humour but do not endure barbs lightly and can bear a grudge. That's another thing the two of you have in common... you both are capable of retaining hurts (both real and imagined) for a very long time.

Cancer is a Water Sign and Virgo is an Earth Sign, so you will be fruitful and multiply. In business,Cancer has a knack for making a fortune grow, while Virgo has the patience for tending to the necessary details. In creative endeavours, you can inspire Virgo, who can be too much of a perfectionist to take the risks needed for success.

Watch your personal habits, for Virgo is very fastidious and can be critical! Virgo is also rather reserved, so be prepared to persevere, and you will find a lifelong friend and ally, who can also reach great heights of sexual attainment.This combination is one of best. You are kindred spirits. It is a perfect match.

Virgo and Cancer

Virgo and Cancer

Virgo, the Virgin and Cancer, the Crab fit together like a hand and glove... both love home and hearth, and both are concerned with the nurturing and wellbeing of others. When you turn your caring sides towards each other, you can reach your goals and turn your dreams into reality. The two of you make an excellent team, whether you are romantically involved, family members, friends, or business partners.

Cancer is a leadership-oriented Cardinal Sign, while you were born under a more flexible, Mutable Sign. Cancer will naturally want to feel in charge, but has regular and sometimes debilitating mood swings. With your talent for communication and practical way of taking care of things, you can help the Crab to stay more balanced and productive. Cancer can truly blossom with your steadfast support, but you must guard against your favourite defence: criticism. Cancer has a wonderful, lunar sense of humour but won't take your barbs lightly. Learn to bite your tongue more often if you want to avoid having your normally delicious Cancerian lover hold a grudge against you. That's another thing the two of you have in common... you both are capable of retaining hurts (both real and imagined) for a very long time.

Because Cancer is a Water Sign and you are an Earth Sign, the chances are good that you will be fruitful and multiply. Whether you are creating children of the heart, body, or mind, the two of you make an excellent parenting team. In business relationships, your combined abilities are almost sure to guarantee at least a modest measure of success. Cancer has a knack for making a fortune grow, while you have the patience for tending to the necessary details. In creative endeavours, Cancer can help inspire Virgo. With your combined resourcefulness and imagination, this team shines on projects that require improvisation.

Cancer is protective, even possessive and can be a jealous lover, though more from insecurity than just the desire to dominate. For a loving, protective partner, who has wonderful bouts of creativity interspersed with dreamy romanticism, yet peppered with practicality, you need look no further than Cancer

This combination is one of the most natural and easy in the Zodiac. As kindred spirits, you will want to make the effort to get to know each other better. Even with stressful aspects between Moon and Ascendant, the two of you are likely to get along. This is a perfect match.
