This month’s final assignment is to try creating a 3D image. Include elements in the foreground and background that work together to separate those two parts of the scene. My choices are from museums I have visited in the last year or so.
Metropolitan Museum of Art ~ New York City
Portland Maine Museum of Art ~ Portland, Maine
Albany Institute of History and Fine Art ~ Albany, New York. The exhibit was called ‘Well Dressed in Victorian Albany’.
Share photos using the rule of thirds.
Hearing two different kinds of music in January 2019.
January 12th -Denny Lane and The Moody Wing Band doing the music of Wings ‘Band on the Run’ album, including my personal favorite Mull of Kintyre.
January 28th- Beethoven’s 9th Symphony at Carnegie Hall, NYC.
Not sure how to interpret this prompt but in looking at some of my pictures of the Brooklyn Bridge from last October I decided to invert them and voila… this is what I got 🙂
The lady who needs no introduction… day or night.
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.
My daughter Deb and I go out for coffee every Saturday, we’ve been doing this for almost 20 years. Sometimes we stay local, sometimes travel to different state to meet a friend like in the upper right hand corner picture or choose a place in NJ where we can enjoy the NYC skyline. Sometimes Deb takes her writing along and I bring a crossword puzzle book or a small coloring book with me. Even though we live together these Saturday morning outings are a special time for us.
