Another great art day! Today the MOMA.  So much to see and I tried to take it all in but went into overload.
I am attaching a picture of Frida K. A self portrait I do not think I have ever seen before, it was magnificent! Frida painted herself as a strong confident woman.  The color and details were wonderful.  What a life and what a woman!  Please take a close look at the frame.  Also, at the MOMA was Rivera's work like I have never seen before.  The installation was a artists dream in that they had his drawings for many completed murals.  I have never been a fan of his work but seeing the process turned me around!

I went to the 9/11 Memorial today.  Whew, what a beautiful site they have created!  Every time I was in New York I just had to pass on going to the site, but I was ready and glad I went today.  I recommend a visit for everyone.  Very humbling to say the least.  Aso, so many small memorials out side the Memorial. that are so thought provking.

Today was the best at the Museum of Art & Design in New York. Glasstress New York: New Art From The Vinice Biennales is not to be missed! I was in that building for about three hours and dreaded leaving as they always have the best and most exciting exhibits.  I will post pictures later as I am just beat today!

Great Chocolate Bobka today!

Finally, my challenge is finished.  Karen Musgrave put out a call for a challenge using this wonderful 50's fabric that I used in the Cafe Curtains.  I also used the reverse side of the fabric in the background. The idea behind the work is to highlight what advertisers suggested would be wonderful gifts for women for the holidays especially those that made her life easier. Really!
Well, what to say about that?  Love this challenge!

Also, no that is not Pat Nixon in the photo, some of you are just to funny and I get it!

Yesterday was the best day for me.  I went to see the Richard Serra "figure eights" at the Cantor Museum in Palo Alto, California.  What a wonderful site to see!  I could have stayed inside those walls all day. Yes, I could create a living space inside the "figure eights".
