I love the evening polarized light on the trees. This picture is almost abstract. My mother would love the colors.
For the Ragtag Daily Prompt: timely.
My mother died in 2000 and my father in 2013 and my house is full of art. My mother was a prolific artist and I am working on placing, gifting, cataloging her art. There is rather more than I’d seen. Watercolors and etchings were her most loved, I think, though she did woodcuts, silk screen, oils, pottery and all sorts of crafts.
She did tiny etchings, often 2 by 2 or 2 by 3 inches of fantasy creatures.
For the Ragtag Daily Prompt: jewel.
I have an amber necklace that belonged to my grandmother. Patrick noticed the insect and took the close up. The necklace is over 60 years old judging by the clasp. But the insect is far older…..
For Norm2.0’s Thursday doors: here.
But the buildings are sideways. And there aren’t many doors. No, that’s true, but it’s because the whole thing is a door:
…a door on a van…with a city scape.
For the Ragtag Daily Prompt: quaint.
We visited my friend Malene in Wisconsin, and she took us and her grandchildren to Nick Engelbert’s Grandview.
We may think of folk art as quaint or cute, but his art is amazing and on a grand scale. The house, the out building and a yard full of sculpture, all to explore. The house was closed so we did not go inside on this trip, but the outside is wonderous.
This is not the house. It’s just an outbuilding.
These are the arches in front of the house.
And sculptures all through the yard:
This is being restored.
Not just an elephant. It is political commentary.
Complex, humorous and my impression is certainly that this farmer/artist was a joyous worker!
For Norm2.0’s Thursday doors.
Two weeks ago I was visiting family in Dodgeville, Wisconsin. This is an art installation in town and the multitude of doors made me think of Thursday doors! Hoods, too. What day would we choose for hoods? I am afraid that many of the hoods I think of are grim, but these hoods are fine…
For the Daily Prompt: disappear.
Welcome to Mundane Monday #161, shots of mundane objects that are not so mundane on second glance.
A lamp or a light could be mundane. It isn’t when the electricity goes out. Suddenly light and head and power become much less mundane and much more amazing.
This light is in the lobby of the Hotel Murano in Tacoma, and it is another example of the amazing glass art that is all over Tacoma.
Last week’s photographs for Mundane Monday: stairs. Published on Tuesday.
ColletteB responds with a beautiful staircase.
It’s Monday already somewhere in the world… I am posting before my Monday this week.
A happy sky ship. From Tacoma’s Hotel Murano.
