Since last winter went so swimmingly, let's try it again! TFS has very graciously opened her home in the west San Fernando Valley to me again. This time her daughter AS (and dog and cat) are there too. Two women + two dogs + two cats = not my usual solitary winter again. Huzzah!

2014.04.27 Amon Carter Museum of American Art



    It's a hot muggy Sunday on our last weekend in Texas. A good day to be in air-conditioned surroundings. Like the Amon Carter Museum of American Art in Fort Worth, TX . And, parking and admission are free!

    Remington wanted some men for a "big cowboy picture." That picture launched his career when it received favourable critical attention at the National Academy of Design in New York in 1890.

Art & Appetite: American Painting, Culture, and Cuisine

    I'd show you this exhibition, but photography wasn't allowed. We were hungry after though.
Another no-photography exhibit was James McNeill Whistler: Lithographs from the Steven L. Block Collection at the Speed Art Museum.
A third was an exhibit of oversized photographs of people riding urban transit in various large cities. Rather ironic that photos weren't allowed of this one.


All Done!

The museum walls
are limestone, which
contain cavities from
the bodies of the
aquatic shelled
animals it once held.
    A very pleasant and informative museum. I know a lot more about the two main artists than I ever did.

Back we go into the heat. Out front there is a depressed grassy area that looks like a dry pond with a tree and a sculpture interrupting a wide walkway around the depression.

Fort Worth skyline

Is that? Could it be?

Yup, more
