Lyn Green. It is such an amazing building as I've told
you before. We spent the best part of the afternoon there,
talking about and studying the vastly different styles of
art in the gallery. It was an inspiring trip. Gehry's
revamp of the gallery is a marvel -- and each time I've
visited I am almost torn between looking at the art
and admiring the architecture. Don't get me wrong the
building showcases the art beautifully, but it is in itself
a miraculous piece of art -- huge and elegant, magnificent
and people friendly.
"Art Matters" is the gallery's slogan. I already have a T-shirt
I love that expresses that. Today I bought us mugs that reaffirm
the sentiment. It does doesn't it. Art does matter.
I have not had as much time to paint as I'd like, but I've done
a bit more with the mother and child. It's far from done, but
it's moving along.
Have a believing-art-matters day.
