I got the notice rather late in the day after running errands and such. It was free day at the local museum and I had not been there in a while, so off I went for the last days of the latest show. As usual I got completely sidetracked by the lovely shadows of museum lighting and other irrelevancies.
There was a current display of art from Brazil. I loved the enigmatic nature of this canvas, with both the figure we see and the unseen figures of the shadows.
This unfinished etching by Rembrandt has a shadowy quality, perhaps it really is finished. (The green in the picture is a reflection from the exit sign). (The exit sign is in case you don’t notice the huge gap in the wall).
Chihuly managed to flog a number of pieces to the museum’s permanent collection. They are pretty enough, but the shadows make them extra fabulous.
The author as a pair of legs. I love how this makes me look extra tall and slim.
And what was I up to? Just snapping away at random things which caught my eye.
This particular shadow was cast right in front of a painting by Andy Warhol. I don’t think that he could have done a better portrait of me, that captures my essence. 😉
