Christmas with the Boys 2017Ten years ago today I started my blog, Life of a Daily Painter.  Hard to believe it’s been 10 years.  Last year for the anniversary post I share a look back.  (See that here.)  This year I just want to say how grateful I am to have people still following along to see what we are doing at The Studio.  The boys and I thank you so much!  Let’s see what this next year brings.10513396_797952213571586_3090502766858340446_n

We saw some wonderful art at The Metropolitan this week while in NYC.  Here are two wonderful Van Gogh’s.  Take a look at the close up of the Cypress painting….so MUCH PAINT!

More with Hockney

Here are more works by David Hockney that we saw at the exhibit at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City this week.

It was an interesting exhibit as we saw the way his art transformed over the years.

And you can see the scope of some of the work.  It was an interesting exhibit.

While in NYC this week we went to the Metropolitan Museum of Art and caught a special exhibit of David Hockney’s work and it was interesting to see the transformation over the years.

More to come tomorrow.

Westminster 2018

We made it up to the dog show….the Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show in New York City at Madison Square Garden.

What fun for anyone who loves dogs.

There were 202 breeds showing and about 2100 dogs.  Heaven for someone like me!

A Visit to MOMA

I got to spend a few hours at the Museum of Modern Art in New York City yesterday.

I love seeing the size of paintings that we see in books and then realize how large…or small they really are.
