you have a good handle on what most modern art now is?
Is that for me? I suppose i did not phrase my post correctly. I dont think modern art applies anymore to my knowledge, I think the types of art the OP was referring to are now alloted to their own specific categories and referring to modern art as encompassing all art created today is incorrect.
But if I'm wrong, please correct me.

i've often thought about making a painting completely from scratch, that is, mix my own pigments, make a proper ground, build the frame, boil my own rabbits... no modern shortcuts. one day i'll follow through i hope.
I have wanted to incorporate Baroque style ever since reading Burne Hogarth's books in which he praises it. Tons of hard work though; and I need to go back to basics to fill in some gaps. I see what you are asking though- it is awesome when the elegant classical styles are combined with exciting modern themes.
