Today . . .

    has been a memorably good day. It started off stinky with Property but since I didn’t get called on it wasn’t so bad. After that I ran an errand and then rolled down to Newcastle to see my mom and work in the garden. It was still really cold out (in the high 20’s this afternoon… btw, it was 12 degrees last night!) but not windy so it was ok for gardening. (I’ll post pics from the garden soon.) Then after that I had to drive back up to OKC to run another errand, so I decided to make quick detour to stroll through the OKC Museum of Art to see if they had any new things on display.

    Believe me, the detour was worth if only for this painting (a new addition from the recently Young collection that was donated to the museum)…

    The Grand Canal, Venice -by Thomas Moran (1898) — from okcartmuseum.com

    Seeing art like that makes me want to start painting again regularly.

    BTW, if you live near OKC buy a museum membership. It isn’t that expensive (I think around $30) and is well worth if you go often. I probably go once a month and it is so nice to visit as often as I want. Also members get $1 off all movie tickets at their “art-house” style theatre and a discount on items in the giftshop.
