Almost have everything posted from vacation. We took a quick drive out to Tybee Island. The lighthouse was iconic. The community was more our idea of a beach town than Hilton head was.
We enjoyed going through the Telfair art museum. It used to be the Telfair home and so there were a few rooms set up as they had been. Mary Telfair had started an amazing collection of art for a smaller city. Lots of photos of art ahead, bail if you aren't interested.
This is a painting of a teenage Kahil Gibran (the author) dressed in Arabic costume.
To walk into this room was kind of amazing. The spaciousness and size of the paintings.
This was a cool painting. It depicts going from being a child to old age.
Called Madonna of the fields.
Church in the Netherlands.
Above and below are details from the painting a few back. I forget which prince this was (of England) reflecting on killing a worthy adversary, the former King.
Here, a younger brother is watching his older brother being taken in by a policeman.
A battle between Polish forces and Russian.
Some paintings by local artists.
This one is called crows on a fence
This is a painting of a local house that I toured.
The floor grate.
Across the street in the modern section.
Finally found the real Bird Girl
Paintings by Winston Churchill. There was a whole exhibit. Who knew he painted?
One of my good friends just started a blog and I didn't really get it. I have kept a journal for years and was not sure that a more "public" journal was something that held any interest for me. I have found, however, that I have enjoyed reading her posts and commenting on them. I have started reading other blogs and am finally coming "up to speed" and seeing some value in the process of sharing thoughts in a way that is unique from both conversation and journaling but somehow a combination of both. Welcome to my blog!
