After spending too much time on the Internet.....

Will there be a day when we stop seeing each other on the street and only online?
If so, will I recognize you?

Beautiful Brooklyn!

I was lucky enough to spend the one beautiful day this week on a Newark Museum trip to Brooklyn!  We began with a walking tour of the Botanical Garden, where the Roses were in all their June bloom; lunch at the Brooklyn Museum, and two docented tours:  El Anatsui's exhibit "Grace & Gravity"....which is just WOW! and a large collection of John Singer Sargent watercolors, along with some answers to the question, "how did he do that?"

African Cosmos

I was able to take photos of just the entry way piece to the exhibit "African Cosmos" at the Newark Museum. As Docents we were privileged to receive training by the Curator of the National Museum of African Art, part of the Smithsonian in Washington, D.C., and the artist, Romuald Hazoume, who created the "Rainbow Serpent" by using plastic gasoline cans. Some photos are a slightly out of focus because I had to use long exposures, no flash, and handheld.

A Walk Along the Path At Harrison Park Towers

Took these photos of the Summer flowers at their best, just before the Fall frost may do them in....or they will be replaced by the Fall planting of Chrysanthemums. Sometimes you just need to take the time to "smell the flowers" or at least admire their beauty!

Jon Stewart celebrates Clint Eastwood’s ‘fistful of awesome’

In a Friday night special, Jon Stewart celebrates Clint Eastwood’s ‘fistful of awesome’ | The Raw Story

Although this blog is mostly about Painting & Pictures, sometimes I just have to get into Politics!

I watched Eastwood and was dismayed by the vulgarity and the disrespect for the office of the Presidency and for President Obama and was disgusted by the laughter and applause for this embarassing performance.

Thank you Jon Stewart for finding the comedy in this Theater of the Absurd!
