Current nominations/Forthcoming nominations
These aren't featured pictures yet. But should be. They are either currently being voted on or will be soon.

2014[edit]

These 79.5 restorations from the first 10 months of 2014 make up 1.773% of all featured pictures on English Wikipedia. My goal for the year is 2%, which currently requires 89.68 restorations. I am currently on target to meet this goal. Ideally, I'd like to break one hundred. I am currently falling behind that goal. (Everything in this paragraph is automatically updated.)

2013[edit]

These 65 restorations from 2013 make up 1.45% of all featured pictures on English Wikipedia.

Older (Highlights)[edit]

This list is not at all complete, but gives a sampling (111 images) of my pre-2013 Featured picture work.

Featured Sounds[edit]

(List not complete by any means - I have 40% of all FSes, so I need to copy over a lot more =) )

Gabriel Fauré's Fantasie (1898), performed circa 1976 by Alex Murray (flute) and Martha Goldstein (piano).
Frog Legs Rag, a classic ragtime piece by James Scott. Performed on a synthesized piano by Wikipedian Adam Cuerden in 2010 with technical assistance from Jujutacular.
Zoltán Kodály's Duo for violin and cello, Op. 7, performed by the U.S. Army Strings.
Sergei Rachmaninoff wrote two sets of Études-Tableaux in 1911 (Op. 33) and 1917 (Op. 39); this recording is one of the pieces in the second, Opus 39 set. Conceived as "picture pieces", meant to evoke a visual scene, Rachmaninoff nonetheless declined to identify which scene he had in mind for most of the pieces, saying, "I don't believe in the artist that discloses too much of his images. Let [the listener] paint for themselves what it most suggests." Performed by Karine Gilanyan for Musopen.

Signpost notes[edit]


Things I'm working on[edit]

These are things that I'm trying to make into a featured picture, but haven't finished restoring yet. Image shown will generally be a placeholder or possibly a partial restoration.
