Anyone who knows me, knows I love art. I don’t know what it is, but it stirs me all up. I have painted many pieces myself and loved it so. Because of that when I study a piece, I enjoy thinking about the artist and how they felt in the middle of creating their art. Joy, frustration, doubt, happiness, grief, enjoyment?
These are pieces from a recent trip I took to the Nelson Atkins Museum of Art in Kansas City. The info on the piece, follows the piece. Let your mind go, check out their other pieces on the links and happy, joyful Friday to you!
Make it fab!

I do love Kansas City and think this is a most flattering article published by Elle Decor. I enjoyed our local Patricia Shackelford’s incredible ability to capture our cities graces and she did so by highlighting the best and brightest, yet not the most obvious. Well done Patricia (she also has a great blog you just MUST see), well done!
I just had to add this to the blog one more time, but this time with regards from Margaret Russell, Elle’s Editor in Chief. Enjoy…again!
LOVED Elle Decor’s article on Kansas City. My clients, friends and I fully agree it is the fabulous and creative heart of our nation. What a pleasure to have such a gorgeous publication highlight it’s fine beauty, talent and history. It was a wonderfully written piece we can proudly add to our city’s résumé…thanks to our local Patricia Shackelford who did such an excellent job of sharing KC with the world.
Many thanks from the City of Fountains, Elle!
Had a wonderful time at the Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art during their Party Arty, a benefit for the museum. We are so lucky in Kansas City to have such a spectacular museum. The clothing designs were spectacular and the art, of course, was dramatic and amazing. Looking forward to the event in January 2010. Check their site and join us!

I just had to sneak another look at the contemporary exibit after it closed it's doors for the evening. Striking.
