In 2011 I did a Sunday series on my photography (you can see them in the drop down series menu on the right under ‘Photographic Sunday’). I have created a lot of new images since then so I thought I would do a few more editions of ‘Photographic Sunday’ for you.

Museum Compositions

I LOVE to go to museums. In the past year I have gone to:

  • Metropolitan Museum of Art (New York, New York)
  • San Francisco Museum of Modern Art (San Francisco, California)
  • Getty Art Center (Los Angeles, California)
  • San Diego Museum of Art (San Diego, California)
  • Dallas Arboretum (Dallas, Texas) (Chihuly outdoor exhibition)
  • William J. Clinton Presidential Library and Museum (Little Rock, Arkansas)
  • Harry S. Truman Presidential Library and Museum (Independence, Missouri)
  • Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art (Bentonville, Arkansas)
  • 21c Museum (Bentonville, Arkansas)
  • Philbrook Museum of Art (Tulsa, Oklahoma)
  • Perot Museum of Nature and Science (Dallas, Texas)

Six of those visits came when I planned in an entire extra day on a trip I was on just to see the Museum, that’s how important it is to me. One of the reasons I love museums is because of the incredibly diverse interior and exterior spaces that I find. Add to that the range of people, their justaposition with the art and each other and it is always ripe for what I think are pretty compelling compositions.  Let me know what you think.
