Arty Tuesday: Hiroshige – Sudden Downpour

Sometimes you have to go with a classic because they are classic for a reason. I feel like rainy cities everywhere are linked in our common awe of the power of storms.

Sudden Shower over Shin-Ohashi Bridge at Atake – Hiroshige (1856)

Rainy April is this month’s theme.

Arty Tuesday: Benois – the King Walked in Any Weather

Even the king cannot escape mother nature…

The King walked in any weather…(Saint-Simon) – Alexandre Benois (1898)

For the 2nd time (evidently) I’ve gone with the obvious April showers theme.

Video Post: Peanut Butter & Jelly Time

It’s National PB&J Day. No I don’t know why but that made think it’s time to do a little dancing to Peanut Butter & Jelly Time…

I’m thinking maybe PB & orange marmalade for dinner.

Arty Tuesday: Filliou – Raining Cats & Dogs

I have to admit that I’m not always sure what’s going on in the art installations of the 1960s/70s, but I love the whimsy of this one.

Sometimes I have to go with the obvious so even though it’s a beautiful sunny day in NOLA, April showers is our theme this month.

Arty Tuesday: Murnau Garden by Kandinsky

Beautiful weather makes you want to go sit in a park. I’m waiting for my holodeck so I can go sit in one of my March theme paintings.

Arty Tuesday: Two Women Sitting in a Park by Prendergast

The weather is turning lovely in New Orleans in March so parks will be the theme of the month.
