The Seasons in Art
Even if you don't live in a country with prominent seasons, thankfully artists throughout history (and the world) share their interpretations for all to appreciate. I will discuss.

Portraiture or Voyeurism
Portraits are a representation of one's face, by another or as a selfie. Later in the history of art, half and three-quarter length portraits were added. But when the artist peeps at the subject, well, that is another issue. I will explain.

Death in the Arts
While it may be uncomfortable to discuss our own passing, we can learn to accept the inevitable by discussing how others faced death: some by celebration, others through mourning. I will explain.

Memorial Art
How have those from the past been immortalized? From tombstones, monuments, art, jewelry, and now chatbots I will discuss the many ways we remember the dead.

Shame in Art
Guilt and shame seem to have been interwoven into cultures and religions over time and especially today. Where did it originate? Where do we go from here? I will explain in the context of art.

Creatures in Art
Monsters - whether mythical, magical, mutants or imaginary are terrifying, and are the subject of nightmares and legends. I will explain.

Science X Art
From monuments to color theory to perspective to photography, these are just a few examples of how science and art merge. I will discuss.

Food in Art
From Adam and Eve to hunters on cave paintings to later works of art, humans have a physiological hunger, and in some cases, obsession with food. I will discuss.

Vices and Virtues in Art
As humans, it should be very clear as to what is right and wrong. [Halt! Not always] In the realm of art, it is most interesting to learn the lesson from an allegory. I will discuss these worldly and otherworldly aspects.

The Self in Art
We live in a society where selfies and self-obsession abound. Was this the reason artists created self-portraits over time, or was it something else? I will explain.
