The ramblings of a Creative Crone! I consider myself to be the Grandma Moses of the Fiber Arts World as I came to the art late in life. My blog will consist of my art; art of others; an occasional book review because when not creating, I am reading; perhaps an enlightening discussion on a favorite quote...and positive discussions of politics/world affairs only!

Fort Worth is the most unique city. We have a world renown rodeo and stock show...cowboys everywhere...and the most wonderful art galleries bar none! Today, I had an eye appointment, so Dick went in with me. After my appt. was over, we planned to go to the Kimbell (http://www.kimbellart.org/) to see the current exhibit due to close the end of March.
Of course, I was through before 10:00 so we had time to kill....then realized that the Kimbell doesn't open until 12:00 on Fridays as it stays open until 9:00 PM. So we went over to the Amon Carter (http://www.amoncarter.org/) and wandered around for awhile. The Amon Carter has nothing but American art...from the earliest years of our country up to modern times. Photography is also one of the specialties of the gallery. It is also well known for works by Fredrick Remington and Charles Russell..as well as many Georgia O'Keeffe paintings. All favorites of ours.
After visiting the A. C., (we had also dropped in at the Fort Worth Art Center which used to be the old Modern Art Museum...now displaying the most fantastic thread painting done by some Vietnamese girls), we went to lunch at Dos Gringos. By the time we had finished, the Kimbell was open. We had a great time enjoying the very extensive works of art owned by Texas collectors.
If it weren't for the lousy weather...still rainy and cold...it would have been a perfect day. We came home...had a little nap...and I have begun working on the Donation Quilt 2010. I am liking the design...actually I have two designs I like...by tomorrow I will decide on which one and acutally begin sewing!
