Just about a new month. I can't believe April has come and gone in such a blink of the eye.
I made this week's calendar journal page using a postcard I picked up at the Museum of Fine Arts last week and some words from a travel brochure that came in the mail.
Vacation is over and its back to work in the morning. But this is my last week as I have surgery coming up on the 9th.
Kind of weird to think about school ending so early for me. Usually at this time I still have 6-7 weeks left of the year.
I feel like I spent most of my vacation doing chores. But I'm glad to get so many of the spring projects finished.
But I was happy to make it to the Matisse exhibit at the MFA art museum in Boston. Here's a few views from this exhibit.
The theme if the exhibit was to show some of the artifacts Matisse included in his work, and then show the art that included that piece.
For example, this is a screen that Matisse had in his studio.
I thought the carpet was so well painted I took a close up.
And these chocolate pots.
More of his painting up close. I found that fascinating.
I love how his paint work wasn't perfect yet he still painted these fantastic pieces.
Full of color.
He had some African figures that he also used.
And this statue.
It was an interesting exhibit because you showed so much about his inspirations.
Every time I look at this piece I see more than before. They did have some of his vases on display, but I didn't photograph any.
They also had pieces from his entire career. Including the cut outs he made at the end of his life when painting was too difficult.
The close up details were really fascinating to me again.
And this is only a little bit of the exhibit. If your interested I'll show you some more another day.
Plus there's still the Botticelli's and one of my favorite childhood authors.
And now its May (or just about) with some new adventures.
Hope yours will be a good one.
