Mama & Mondigliani
First off, a BIG THANK YOU! for all the sweet words of encouragement about the Artful Blogging article! You guys are truly the best! (((hugs)))
My Mom came here for a visit so I've been busy spending time with her. Today we went to the AGO (Art Gallery of Ontario. The gallery has been re-designed by the famous architect Frank Gehry. It is so cool inside now!
My mom & I got our pictures taken inside the new addition to the art gallery. The security guard took the picture above.
Then as we went through a different section, I stumbled upon a Mondigliani that I LOVE!!! It is one that I have been inspired by MANY times. There it was, the original! I wanted my picture taken next to it, I knew not to use a flash, because I heard a flash can bleach out the paint over time. We took it (flashless), and all of a sudden a security guard pops up and got very angry! OPPS! So I guess no pictures of any kind are allowed in that section.
I'm glad I got it though :)
We had a lot of fun looking at all the art. There was a show on of surreal art including art and jewelry from Salvador Dalí. I loved the ruby inlayed lips with pearl teeth!
My mom brought some old pictures of me as a kid that I will show you later.
HUGS to all!!!!
