Catch This Without a Net


Don't forget to enjoy the posts on Without a Net, my blog that explains in detail the meaning of each of my paintings. Today's post is about this ermine painting, "For Thy Sweet Love Remembered." (My titles come from Shakespeare's sonnets.)

Birmingham Museum of Art Visit



Japanese


Annabelle and I visited the Birmingham Museum of Art today. It was as empty as we've ever seen it, so next time you want an art museum to yourself, go on the day after Christmas. I took photos (without flash...the rules) of some of our favorite pieces. For some reason we were both taken with the primitive sections this visit.  Forgive my poor reporting on the pieces. We enjoyed the visuals, but didn't jot down all the details.
