Museum Lecture

8 x 8 Oil on Archival Board

Sunday seems to be the best day to go to the museum.  There are so many events happening... Or perhaps we just hit it right.  We were able to listen to an informative discussion about Paul Gauguin's life and his self-portrait.  This painting is my take on that part of our day.  I learned so much from not only this discussion, but also the fascinating information you can get from researching paintings you find interesting. Looking at a painting and admiring it is one thing, but understanding why the artist painted it and his or her motivations gives it another dimension.  More to come.....
