Then we came upon these geometrically designed boxes - Dahlia immediately layed on the floor (we're in a public art gallery, people) and said
"Hey Mom, take this shot!" And she just lay there till I did.
(As quickly as possible - thus the blur - 'cause we were in a public art gallery, people!!!)
She somehow knew she would be the perfect accent to this design. Hmmm......
Now, back to the gallery.
We saw some amazingly beautiful glassware and glass sculptures.
This piece (above and below) just took my breath away. It's from the art deco period and art deco is my absolute favorite design style. I could eat it I love everything about it.
(Yeah, that much!)
So, since I had been taking all sorts of pictures in all the exhibits I assumed the Glass exhibit was no different. Wrong! A security guard came towards us stating "no pictures in this exhibit" and of course I put my camera away.
BUT.....I hadn't taken a picture of this little beauty and I was salivating (even lusting) after it.
So, while Dahlia stood watch (I know - I'm the recipient of the Mother of the year award for that one) I grabbed my camera (the big one folks) and tried to steady myself to grab a shot.
I felt like I was stealing the thing, my hands were shaking so much. This shot was so blurry (like I said - guilt ridden capture) but I was able to doctor it up in Photoshop and...well......
......ain't she purdy!!!!
And speaking of pretty......
....what do you suppose these pretty little eyes are saying?
I shudder to even think!
It can't be "come hither", please tell me it's not!!!
Oh, whew...thank you for your kindness (or for lying to me!).
Hope you enjoyed our little visit to the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts. We're definately going back again, in fact, very soon - there's just so much to see.
And I'm so tickled to have my little buddy enjoying it all with me.
Happy Wednesday everyone!
