Out and about
Sally, Nancy and Eddie, and I went to lunch yesterday and then to our local art museum - the Haggin for a Salvador Dali exhibit. If you have a chance to see it, GO. It was an awesome experience to see his work up close and have time to digest each piece. I could get nose to the glass to look at little details. Where else could I do that?
The paintings were so varied. I loved the ones with multiple images emerging from the background. I was totally tickled with the long masterful skinny legs on a figure, where the watercolors changed hues. Some of the images were disgusting or hideous, but given what he was illustrating, they fit the text. All in all, it was so good, I'll probably go back again. I think they are having a lecture in a week or so. I'd like to get to that. Here is the brochure for the exhibit, and also one for the museum.
