This last week was filled with art, even though I never made it into my studio. I took an endless number of pictures of my garden that somehow is still full of showy blossoms this late in October. I took pictures with colors that aren't retouched and also played with filters on my camera:
|Orange Sombrero echinacea|
|Lovely Red Rose|
|Black and white Geranium Heart|
I went to the Met with my eldest daughter who was home on Fall break:
|Unknown school girl looking elegant in a toga|
|I discovered Francesco Guardi, The Grand Canal Above Rialto, ca. 1760|
He was an master painter of "views" and his name translates to "You see"
|I also discovered a bit of humor in the Temple of Dendur: the artist was (it is assumed) supposed to create mirror reliefs, but in this image, he had one of the birds bite the wrist of the man holding it.|
I had another docent training session for the upcoming portraiture exhibition opening this week at the Katonah Museum of Art. More on that in the next few days, but suffice it to say that I am getting more and more excited about this exhibition.
I also marveled in Mother Nature's gorgeous Fall display, taking more pictures, of course.

Ahh, a great week...
