CHAGALL AND MUSIC EXHIBITION

We just returned from from seeing the exhibition Chagall and Music at the Montreal Museum of Art. It was simply a wonderful experience. It is a very large show with 340 works of art ranging from large paintings to drawings, etchings, sculptures, pottery and especially a wide variety of costumes and set designs from various opera productions. All I can say is go and see the great show. well worth a special visit to Montreal.

FIRST LIGHT IMAGINED

First I like to post this picture. for Dave and Dianne, who like my abstract images. This last few days I have been working on a series of abstracts. I am always interested in the quality of textures, patterns and lines. Maybe its my interest in art ad especially painting. The American abstract artists have always been the artist I greatly admired. Now I started to get interested in,what I refer to as street art.

STREET ABSTRACT, OTTAWA



Street art, graffiti or murals, is a subject which always interest me when walking around cities and towns. I also like looking for interesting patterns and textures found in cracked walls or pavements. Walking down a street in downtown Ottawa I photographed this richly textured and patterned damaged wall.

FIRST SIGNS OF SPRING

What a wonderful early Spring day or at least it started to feel like Spring.  Our small harlequin was ready to take his dog for a walk after being cooped up inside these last cold and snowy weeks. Even though we can expect some more Winter weather, we know Spring will soon be here.

SAN FRANCISCO.CA

Lately I feel like the publisher of the old LIFE magazine. The magazine has not been published for decades but the company is publishing quite a few special editions using images from their very extensive picture library. The same with me the last few weeks I have been revisiting my old files and discovering many really fine images I totally forgot about. So her is a picture I took some years ago in San Francisco. I love this type of very richly patterned old buildings like this old downtown condo.
