drive from maine to boston. i wasn't driving, just putting my camera away and taking it right back out. when i looked at j.m.w. turner's paintings, i did not believe the skies were real. now i do. joy to you today.
the museum of modern art in nyc is a joy. here is balzac, rodin's larger than life sculpture which greets you when you enter.
behind balzac, a wall of windows opens to the sculpture garden. the mop bucket just adds to the appeal.
every part is beautifully designed. here is an entrance to the elevator.
my sister-in-love told me to step over the light and pose. so i did. the guard approached quickly. whoops!
lichtenstein and pop art is so fun.
claes oldenburg's big wilting fan - larger than life, and appealing.
modigliani stretches people. love.
many picassos - love the lines in this one.
matisse painted his son practicing the piano. unusual and interesting composition. and large!
these picasso musicians are much more powerful in person. i'd seen them postcard-sized, but in person they are bright, active, compelling. visiting original art is like vitamins to me. more another day perhaps. joy to you!
