I made it to the Georgia Art Museum yesterday just as the clouds broke away and the sun came out. Hey, hey! After shucking my cardigan, grabbing a hot tea and an amazing maple donut from the Ike & Jane vendor, I walked outside to bask in the light and take a few photos. After about 20 minutes the clouds came back and the rain started back up...but that's okay because I was ready to step inside and start being all artsy fartsy.
I took a ton of pictures since the museum is nice enough to allow photography with certain restrictions. Since I'm not publishing these works as my own nor am I using them to make money, I'm allowed to show a small bit of the art but not the whole shebang in closeups. That made me focus on the minute details that really grabbed me...the way a sheaf of wheat bends in the wind, the play of light across skin or the perfectly aged details of a hand woven straw seat for a chair with a fine patina.
What a lovely way to pass a few hours of the day, eh? I can't wait to go back in November for an exhibit featuring Jack Davis of Mad Magazine fame!
Today I'm working a double at The Grit and then getting a bunch of vintage things ready to sell or consign. See, my clothes rack was so full that it collapsed in the middle of the night and, uh, that's not good. Time to downsize and simplify! So, yes. Busy day. And tomorrow Brady and I are heading to the 79th Annual 12-County Elberton Fair! October is already flying by...
Happy Wednesday to everyone!
