Here are the top ten articles for the Art Appreciation Site! These rankings are live and get reset at the beginning of each month, so check back often to see what your fellow visitors are most interested in!

1. Artists Inspire Popular Baby Names A-G
August is the month when more births occur in the US. In a time where (almost) anything goes, let痴 look at artists who we admire and how they have inspired popular baby names. I値l discuss names A-G.

2. Dark, Macabre, Grotesque Themes in Art
Dark, Macabre, and Grotesques themes in art can best be described as your worst nightmares. Why would artists choose to express themselves in this way? I値l discuss my interpretations.

3. 'Light Art' vs 'Light and Space' Art
'Light Art' can be recognized as far back as the Medieval period with stained glass, whereas the 'Light and Space' art movement hails from the 1960s. I値l discuss artists who bring art to life through light.

4. Best Living Artists of Abstract & Photo Paintings
A survey by Vanity Fair searching for only 6 of the greatest living artists falls short of all the artists whose work we know and love. I値l discuss Gerhard Richter, Frank Stella, Cindy Sherman and others.

5. The Trinity and Significance of Number 3 in Art
Whether you池e religious, or not, the Bible eludes to groupings of 3 as well as Greek mythology. I値l discuss art where the theme is in the power of #3.

6. Independence Day & Liberty in Art
As we have learned from history, independence comes with a price: lives, cost, property. On the eve of July 4th, I salute those who have fought for independence in US and abroad. I will discuss some notables.

7. Cool Down Viewing Seascapes in Art
You can escape the heat of the summer by visiting a museum or viewing paintings online of the sea seascapes. I will discuss many notable works by both Americans and European artists.

8. Film Directors as Artists
Woody Allen denies that he is one of these, yet points to fellow film directors as being true 疎rtists. I値l discuss these internationally acclaimed directors.

9. The Mona Lisa
The 'Mona Lisa' by Leonardo da Vinci is an enigmatic painting raising questions as to the identity of the sitter, why Napoleon痴 obsession and inspiring a song and movie in modern times. What really lies behind that mysterious Mona Lisa smile?

10. The Real Meaning in the 'Creation of Adam'
In my interpretation of Michelangelo痴 fresco on the Sistine Chapel ceiling, what did God痴 finger bring to Adam? Was it life or intelligence? I値l introduce a third theory.
