Isn't that a gorgeous painting!
We have a wonderful exhibit
coming to our city this coming
weekend from New Orleans:
Monet, Renoir, Degas, Cassatt,
O'Keefe, Picasso, Kandinsky,
John Singer Sargent, Miro,
....oh my, sigh. I've been teaching
my class about these artists. Even
a Pollack who splattered paint
and made a living from that! No
William Merritt Chase from my
headliner, but I love the green in
this painting and would love to
be there breathing the air of freshness
and hearing it too.
Reminds me of this Wendell Berry
Ask the world to reveal its quietude—
not the silence of machines when they are still,
but the true quiet by which birdsongs,
trees, bellows, snails, clouds, storms
become what they are, and are nothing else.
