I’ve got art on the brain.
(Don’t think that that Dog N Suds picture below won’t get framed in our house, because it will.)
My friend, Janis, sent this one over to me this morning and I love it. It’s Sue at Chicago’s Field Museum of Natural History. We were in high school when Sue arrived at the Field and I was pretty ecstatic. I still have my “I Saw Sue” t-shirt.
Here’s another work I found this morning, with a sort-of Chicago connection: The Gardens by Tyson Anthony Roberts. When I saw it, I immediately was drawn to it because it reminded me of A Sunday on La Grande Jatte by Georges Seurat, which is on display at the Art Institute of Chicago.
And then, I read this article about it, and realized that Jen Beckman was also immediately reminded of Sunday in the Park. :)
Lastly, just because I would love to hang this in my house; a portrait of something I love:
A painting of cake.
