As I return from an amazing NYC girl’s trip with my daughter and mother, I’m thankful for family and the special time we shared. My daughter was old enough to be appreciative, yet young enough to scavenge yummy sweets from the candy bins at FAO Schwartz and ice skate in the park with her Mom.
Here's a shot from inside the MOMA. Love this view.
We spent a day ohhing and ahhing over art at the MOMA and the Frick. My top three paintings, although there were so, so many were... Monet’s Agapanthus, Pollock's Shimmering Substance 1946 and Vermer's Girls With the Pearl Earring (in no particular order).
Vermer's The Girl With the Pearl Earring
Her expression in person compared to what you see here or in a book does not even do the painting justice. The detail is stunning!
The marks and movement in this piece are beautiful. I could have stared at it all day.
We ended the trip with a heartwarming Christmas sending off thanks to the Rockets. Twinkle lights, 3-D effects, Santa, high kicks and snow drifting upon the audience… Oh my!
Thanks for visiting my site!
