Friendly Friday Photo Challenge – Art Unexpected…

Clockwise from upper right:  tree sculpture in PA – easels in windows – statues and metal cows at the Field Gallery on Martha’s Vineyard – sidewalk art – mural in NJ – piano in Greenwich Village, NYC.

My daughter and I are deeply into our genealogy and have been visiting cemeteries where our ancestor are buried.  I’ve always found cemeteries to be interesting places, especially the older ones where grave stones and markers are indeed works of art.  We have several ancestors buried in Mt Pleasant Cemetery in Newark, New Jersey, which is Newark’s oldest cemetery and in my opinion the most beautiful and interesting one.  The cemetery has a special section for the firemen of Newark and that is where my great, great grandfather is buried.  The unexpected art connection to me are the fire hydrants that surround this section.

Scream…

Chamber of Internal Dialogue. This was taken at the Grounds For Sculpture in Hamilton, NJ in October 2011.  Aren’t we all screaming internally at times 🙂

Photo A Day Challenge: Sea Green…

‘Warped Clipper Ship’ by American artist Valerie Hegarty.

I like this because it’s different.  To me the  dominant color is sea green, and also the sea is in the picture.  🙂  Saw this in Oct 2018 at the Portland Museum of Art in Maine.

Colorings…

A friend of mine mentioned that I hardly ever post pictures of my colorings, so here are just a few.  I love to color, it’s relaxing, creative and gives my hands something to do when I’m watching TV.  I use gel pens almost all the time but also colored pencils as well.

One of my most favorites is this heart one:

The Map of Martha’s Vineyard…

100_1919 (2).jpg

My dad bought this beautiful 21×28 map of the Vineyard for me in 1959.

This hand colored print was done in 1926 by  painter, illustrator and cartoonist, Lloyd Coe.  who was born in Edgartown in 1899. I love the details and bits of historical information.

I’ve never seen this map again in any stores on MV. Wonder if anyone else reading this has one ?

Photo A Day Challenge: Letter ‘M’…

Metropolitan Museum of Art ~ New York City

I was here last week to see Monet, Dutch Masters and much more, including mummies and the Temple of Dendur which although not an M, is magnificent.
