The River September 12, 2013

Just be in the flow

The river runs to the sea

Float and be, let go.

Art Prescription:  Sometimes the best thing you can do is to simply let go and float. Quit trying so hard to swim up stream! Do you even know where you are trying to get? So float, be buoyant, weightless…

Haiku June 27, 2013 Ego

Job, calling, career?

Does your heart leap at new day?

Is your ego stroked?

Art Prescription:  At my nursing job we are hosting an undergraduate student program. Eagerly these young folks follow the surgeon I work for and try to absorb enough information to guide their next move in life. It’s so important to choose something that feeds your spirit and gives your ego a boost. And to choose a vocation from your heart versus what people want you to be!!

Haiku February 10, 2013 Master Painters

Thick vivid brush strokes

My eyes follow color, line

Great master painters!

Art Prescription:  I went to the Nasher Museum today to see  Collecting Matisse and Modern Masters: The Cone Sisters of Baltimore. Stunning show! From the Nasher site:

“Henri Matisse fondly called Dr. Claribel and Miss Etta Cone “my two Baltimore ladies.” The two Cone sisters began buying art directly out of the Parisian studios of avant-garde artists in 1905. At a time when critics disparaged Matisse, and Pablo Picasso was virtually unknown, the Cones followed their passions and amassed one of the world’s greatest art collections. The exhibition tells this story and features more than 50 of these masterpieces–including paintings, sculptures and works on paper by Matisse, Picasso, Gauguin, Renoir, van Gogh, Pissarro, Courbet and more–on loan from The Baltimore Museum of Art.

In addition to modern masterpieces, the exhibition includes textiles and decorative arts from Europe, Asia and Africa that the Cones collected, as well as photographs and archival materials to highlight the remarkable lives of these sisters. Also featured in the exhibition will be an interactive virtual tour of their adjoining Baltimore apartments, showing their remarkable collection as it was displayed in their home.

All works are from the collection of The Baltimore Museum of Art: The Cone Collection, formed by Dr. Claribel Cone and Miss Etta Cone of Baltimore, Maryland.”
