so real
Because the pre-loaded wallpaper images on the iPod Touch are all either boring or slightly feminine, I decided to import this 1958 Salvador Dali watercolor, “Allegorical Saint and Angels in Adoration of the Holy Spirit”, into mine. So now it shows up every time my iTouch gets prompted out of lock mode (which is often).

I’ve expressed before how much I like this piece. It holds up pretty well in shrunken, digitized format. I especially get a kick out of much Nirvana’s cover art for the “In Utero” album evokes “Allegorical”, and the almost side-by-side visual I get whenever one of those tracks ticks up on shuffle-play.

I’d still love to get a wall print of this painting. I’m heading down to Tampa Bay next week, so even though the Dali Museum doesn’t list this as being available in their giftshop in any form, I might luck out. At least see it in person one more time.
