I love the bright colors and bold simplification of his work. His "Ballerina" and my interpretation of the piece. Using his form and my own color palette, created one of my own favorite ballerina paintings. Painted with DecoArt acrylics and Titanium White Oil stick.
The collection was added just this last spring and is a treat to the senses. Seeing these wonderful paintings up close and personal was an emotional and delightful experience.
Viewing Monet's Water Lily painting from a distance. It was much larger than I thought it was and, a little hard to photograph.
Love the close up, the brush strokes and see how abstract it actually is.
Of course there were many other artists idisplayed n the museum. Another favorite of mine, John Singer Sargent. " Mrs. Cecil Wade, 1886.
The photo does not do the color and light justice. The whites just seem to sparkle against the contrast of the dark and subtle background.
The museum was most definitely the highlight of our weekend trip. We were there most of the day and didn't see everything. The new addition of the Bloch building and his private collection made our visit even more special and exciting.
If you are ever in the Kansas City area, the Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art is a must!
Such inspiration and too many photos to post. Until next time.
