Impressionism Exhibit in Oklahoma City, etc.

According to the Tulsa World newspaper, an exhibition of Impressionism from The Phillips Collection will be on display at the Oklahoma City Museum of Art through January 18, 2009. Childe Hassam, Maurice Prendergast and John Henry Twatchman are a part of The Phillips Collection. What a wonderful experience it would be to see these in real life. A newly discovered painting by Gifford Beal (1897-1956), On the Hudson at Newburgh, is part of the Collection and can be viewed online at: http://www.tfaoi.com/am/3am/3am309.jpg

While browsing the Arts section of the Tulsa paper this morning I read about the Art Smart Club. A new internet based venture, designed to help children develop their creativity. One of the things I like were the downloadable drawings that can be colored or painted. One of their goals is to help work out the steps needed to accomplish goals. Pretty cool, yes?

The Signs of Aging: having a doctor's appointment, getting dressed, fill up the car with gas, check the appointment to be sure you are on time, realize the appointment isn't until tomorrow. I'm still laughing!
