Artist Date

We went to the Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art
today for our Artist Date.

They have a Rodin sculpture exhibition
 from now until next June.

We explored Dutch paintings.

I love seeing the flowers

and the butterflies.

I am searching for an artist to fall in love with.

I am very smitten with Rachel Ruysch's work.
This painting has captured my heart.
I will do some research on this amazing artist.
I am inspired!
The Nelson has some lovely pieces.
I would like an Owl Jug.
A reproduction would be just fine for my cider.

We watched as an installation was being set up.

I am learning about

Day of the Dead.

We stopped for lunch at the cafe.
Very tasty.

Next week our Artist Date will be on Friday night.
It will be First Friday.
We will be going on a gallery walk.
I think a cup of hot co-co is part of the plan.


  1. Dear Sherry,

    Beautiful paintings indeed. My favourite artist is Monet. I love the pastels......also the romantic nature of some of his work.

    I am glad you enjoyed your artist date.....such fun.

  2. BTW Poppy Field is one of my favourites :)
    Do google is so beautiful (well, I think it is )

  3. How very fun.
    i love Rodin, ever since i was a child! Something about the massiveness of his hands and feet. And dutch paintings have a place in my heart as well. lovely weekend to you ~
