Temperatures are soaring across the nation. People are heading to the beach. Miro’s “Summer” exudes a red hot beach, with a scorching yellow sun-lit sky, to make us feel the heat of the event. My blog discusses the painting and the artist’s life and legacy.
Holy Week! The week between Palm Sunday and Easter, was literally set in motion by Jesus Cleansing the Temple and Driving out the Money Changers, as seen in 4 dramatic paintings by El Greco. My blog highlights not only these 4 paintings, but also the most important week in the Life of Jesus Christ—and for us.
As the old year ends–and a new one begins, I have selected “Weeping Woman” by Pablo Picasso this week because I feel it is representative of both the old year–and the new! The horrors faced in 2020. The uncertainty we face in 2021. What will 2021 have for us! Find out more about this painting and its artist on my blog.

One of the anticipated highlights of our [now cancelled] trip to Spain was experiencing the architecture of Antonio Gaudi, especially in Barcelona which abounds with his unique “wonky” Modernist architecture. Too many to note, 4 were tops on my must-see list.
In 2020, one of the things I was so excited about was to finally visit the last art museum on my Bucket List from Rick Steves’ Top Art Museums of Europe: the Prado and view Picasso’s Guernica. Sadly, not this year.
