To determine whether or not you’re artistic, take the Vincent van Gogh test.

The world-class Cleveland Museum of Art opened in 1916 and has been serving the people of northeast Ohio ever since. The original neoclassic building of white Georgian marble has now been expanded by the addition of a thoroughly modern building plus renovation of the original building.
I have to admit that I like the older part of the building better, but the two disparate parts of the building seem to work well together. The museum’s outstanding collections are much better displayed now and best of all, the museum, with the exception of special exhibitions, is still free! If you’d like to read more about the museum, their website is here: www.clevelandart.org. And if you’re in Cleveland, stop by. You won’t be disappointed. None of the photos have been edited.

The first photo is of the new atrium, which beautifully joins the old and new sections of the museum.
Here’s another example of the new and the old.

This week is a free choice week for the Phoneography Challenge entry and I chose “Abstract.”
The first photo is a photo of the Tour de France on the monitor of my laptop. We had the laptop connected to the TV for a bigger picture, when I noticed that from the angle I was viewing the laptop monitor, I was getting an unusual picture. I took a number of shots, but this is one of my favorites. No editing or anything else, just the original shot.
The next photo is of the light coming through the shower curtain in the bathroom.
My final shot is of my feet on an oriental carpets, taken using one of the things I love to play with on the iPad, the Photo Booth app.
I used the Thermal Camera for this picture.

Raise your glass to the weekend, a glass of Cooper’s Hawk sangria filled with slices of fresh peaches and strawberries. Ahhhhh!
Are you in Spain? Provence? Does it matter? It’s almost the weekend and you’re with the person you love. Enjoy!
And may you have a blessed weekend.
(The painting in the background was done by our daughter the art student before she went to art school. If you’d like to see more of her work, visit her blog: http://dontwaittonight.wordpress.com/. Want to buy something you see there? Let her know.)

Today‘s Daily Prompt is “The Artist’s Eye”. The question is whether there’s a painting or piece of sculpture to which I’m drawn. Although our house is filled with pieces that fit this description, this is one of the first pieces I bought after we were married. It’s an Indian wedding vase, although I regret that I no longer remember from which tribe. I bought it in Sedona, Arizona while visiting my parents and brought it home as a gift for my husband and me. I still find as lovely today as the day I saw it.

And you thought Bugatti just made cars. Carlo designed this coffee and tea set on display at the Cleveland Museum of Art. Would you have it in your house? I would.
A thing of beau-tea is a joy forever.
