Meet me in St.Louis

 Arrived here today and so far, I am impressed.  My host Wendy and I headed over to the gorgeous art museum this afternoon and spent an hour with the contemporary art.  Some of it, honestly, was a hoot and can only have been created with tongue firmly planted in cheek.

On the other hand, there were some very cool works, only a few of which I was able to capture.  The two following are opposite edges of the same canvas.u

And the next one needs no introduction, despite my rather crooked photo of those famous edges.  Can they ever be done in cloth?

Tonight I spoke at the guild meeting and for the next two days, I teach.  So enough blogging for now.
'Nite.

I think it's really funny that I just had a blog post with the same exact title! Except that I am nowhere near St. Louis, but my art is. Hope you get a chance to check out QN at the St. Louis University Museum. Have fun teaching!!

In the area near the art museum is a Catholic Cathedral. You must check out the tile murals. Sure to be an inspiration for another quilt. While in the area (Central West End) buy some handmade chocolates at Bissingers for your friends - if you don't eat them all on your way home. Then go to Rib City for Ribs, Bel Lago and/or Marcella for Italian Food. You'll wish you stayed longer.

That would indeed be an interesting challenge to try and achieve the same effect in fabric as Rothko did in his paintings. You reminded me that is is on my list of things I want to try some day...
Thank you for a very inspiring post!
