September 2023 Challenge: Art Museum

“It’s a Dog’s Life” sketchbook watercolor pen and ink 
Just a man and his dog admiring a painting in a museum gallery.

"Museum Of Fine Arts 'Flags Of The World' Christmas Tree, 6x8 Acrylic by Kelley Carey MacDonald
I am doing a series of Holiday Trees for the Providence Art Club's Little Picture Show in November and I loved this tree at the MFA, Boston, which, IMHO is just another star in the sky of New England!

 "Reality Fades In Comparison" 6x8 oil by Jeanne MacFarland

"MFA for everyone" 2022 -watercolor - by Sally Dean
I loved the artsy outfit that gal on the left had on.
Th MFA in Boston is world class- I can't wait to return.

"Gallery with Meunier, Museum of Fine Arts" oil 8 x 16 by Jody Regan - I love the activity in the MFA galleries; the variety of people and the visual feast.  This gallery boasts "The Deck Hand", bronze by Meunier. I love this common man's posture and his position above the crowd.  


"Madame XX" oil on canvas paper by Pamela Copeman - profile of a woman you might see in a museum.

"Two Old Salts at the Farnsworth" by oil on canvas paper 9"X12" Margaret Farrell Bruno
One of my last trips to the Farnsworth this gentleman was checking out the paintings. I couldn't get over how he was channeling this painting and thought it would be fun to paint him in front of this painting. I didn't catch him in time, but followed him around until I caught in the position I thought would work. And when we got this for this month's challenge, I recalled how I wanted to paint this juxtaposition.
