Weekends...

Are wonderful.  Yesterday my daughter and I went to the Denver Art Museum.  I took a photo of the above painting because I loved it.  Although I generally almost despise "southwestern art," this painting was done long before the genre existed, and the colors are almost neon against the black background.    In the museum, there was one tiny room with some 13th and 14th century iconography, and both my daughter and I loved it and spent a lot of time there.  I wish I had taken some photos there - but I was too engrossed in the art, the meaning, and the symbolism to whip out my blackberry I guess.  

Today is a large family dinner.  After church.  And after a run.  Sort of like Aunt Bea of Mayberry, eh?  I better get going.  A lot to do....  I wish weekends were longer than 2 days...

I should know who the artist is, it is a familiar image. I love it!

The Denver Art Museum building is wonderful, maybe I can get there some day.

I love to watch Aunt Bea. So and I have an Aunt B. She passed away in the 80's. Did you know that Aunt Bea and Andy really didn't get along in real life? Weird huh?

I went to the Art Museum when I was in Denver and really liked it. Yes, there was the southwestern emphasis but I learned and saw so much.
