Sunday in Dallas

While this entry is going to chronicle a very pleasant day in Dallas, I first have to complain about Blogger!! The last post I made was from a different computer, but no one can see my photos and scans! Grrrrrr...NOW when I want to put these photos in some sort of order, the stupid program won't allow it! Grrrrrrr...So, here's what happened, and then I will identify the photos.

After church we drove to Dallas to meet my life-long friend Helen. There wasn't as much traffic, and we got to the Dallas Museum of Art a little early, so we had a nice glass of ice tea. When Helen arrived we first took in the Matisse exhibit...and after a LOT of Matisee I am sure I don't like his work...except the collages. I have one photo of a collage. I also took other photos in and around the museum. The day was absolutely glorious. There are also another couple of photos taken about the same time...BUT, they are out of order. So...hope you enjoy. We sure did!

This is Raf and me in the grassy park part of the museum. The day was beautiful, warm, and the grass soooo green.This is Helen and me at the entrance to the Matisse exhibit...see photos of Matisse behind us.
This is Raf, Helen, and me in the museum park.
Here is an out-of-order photo of Turtle...especially for Terry!
This is looking across the park at some of the sculptures.
This is a close-up of the same sculptures.
And Raf and Helen in front of same.
This is a stainless steel sculpture inside the museum.
This really interesting sculpture just outside the sculpture museum.
Another of the outside exhibits.
Out-of-order once again. This is a photo of our "painted rock". It is east of Mineral Wells and east of Cool. This is a "tribute" to the recently fired band director with the sunset behind and a carpet of bluebonnets in front.
This painting is in the tea room at the museum.
An outside sculpture.
Ah, ha! The is one of the Matisse collages.
This is the entrance to the Dallas Museum of Art in downtown Dallas.
Another wall in the tea room.
Blown glass flowers in the tea room.
Out-of-order...coffee cake for breakfast!
Downtown Dallas.
More downtown Dallas.
This is a George Segal sculpture. He was the art teacher at Piscataway High School, Piscataway, New Jersey, when Raf was a student there.
Sooooo...I hope you've enjoyed our trip. Sorry it's so spacy! However, it was an amazing day.

Beautiful pics and I would not worry about the order. When I do the pictures I write what I want to write FIRST and then put the pictures in last. I always start with the picture that I want to be at the bottom of my post FIRST. Then I continue on up from there. Does that make any sense to you?
Thanks for stopping by. Great post..

What a great day you had! Glad Blogger worked for you this time.

Regarding your comment today, my desire is to do a book with both of my kids with their journeys. Kristen and I did her anorexia journey before we "met" and it's on my sidebar, if you're interested.

The collages are very different from his other pieces, aren't they? I loved the collages -- they could easily be fused art quilts.
