Museum Outing

 



Isn't Holly just the sweetest? She's been sneaking into the 'Frodo' zones undetected. She has a swing in her step because she is successful. Frodo has got to know she is there and just doesn't care. If only they could talk to us. It's raining today and that makes it a wonderful day to read and knit.

Yesterday we drove to the Westmoreland Museum of American Art for the morning to see their exhibit on Gate Crashers (self-made artists). The paintings were excellent and I learned about some interesting facts on the various artists showcased. The rest of the museum was just as informative and inspiring. 

After a quick lunch at a local cafe we drove to the south part of Pittsburgh to return a purchased item no longer needed and we avoided 'highways' due to a major traffic jam. Let me tell you, I saw a lot of towns that I probably never have been to in person. It was fun!

I hope the museum inspires me to dust off the paints and start exploring with techniques and colors. Thank you for the kind wishes about my dry eye (and dry mouth, ugh). The eyedrops will take six weeks to work so every day I'm inching towards relief. The dry mouth is what it is, I am lucky it comes and gos and most of the time I manage.

I hope you have a great weekend. As always thanks for visiting this space and reading my posts. We have such a nice little community here.

  5. Beautiful works of art! Every year I take one day to myself and go the the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston. It's one of my favorite places for inspiration! Also, Holly is adorable : )

  8. Holly and Frodo seem to be cautious companions. We've been driving through small towns that are new to us lately because I use the WAZE app on my phone to avoid road tie-ups. It is interesting...and sometimes scary.

  12. I love those murals and the exhibition sounds wonderful. I live in an area that was once called Westmorland, I wonder if there is a connection?
