Art enriches our lives. The imagination and artistic expression of human beings fascinates me.
This really sets us apart from animals, although being sentient beings, they do not possess the ability to design or create (other than functional dwelling places, such as nests, beaver dams etc.) for the sake of beauty and musings.
Walking through the huge doors and entering the great hall of the Met was magical; I felt the electricity of this colossal collection of art, a treasure house! Where to start? Every direction led to the treasures.
Can you find me?
Claude Monet is one of my favourite artists. I love sunflowers almost as much as daisies! I wore my new Monet T-shirt that I bought at the Met gift shop. Did you know Monet painted T-shirts? I don’t think mine is an original, I think this one is a copy. They match my neon yellow skinnies, so I have really made good use of them worn with various tops.
Here are a few of the thousands of photos I took. It was overwhelming! I suppose I could do a whole blog on New York City. 😉
Enjoying the beauty of the rotunda; the whole experience is so aesthetic and visually stimulating.
Meeting interesting people who appreciate art is always a pleasure.
I met a charming family and asked if I could take their photo.
Only human beings wear clothes, I find that fascinating. We are created very uniquely, in the image of God, with the ability to create. The human imagination is truly wondrous and amazing! I appreciate people sharing their God-given talents, making the world a more beautiful place!
I see us, the animals and the earth as His art and design. What people do is an extension of that creativity! Creation-not destruction.
Make a wish, but you may have to wait for your wish to be granted because there’s a line-up and it seems a lot of people are waiting for their wishes to come true!
P.S. For Joni and anyone interested in purchasing an original T-shirt, here’s the selection …
