More To Come
Keep it coming. I love this stuff! Great art and great stories. What's not to love?
The eyes in the Eakins painting are so striking.
I know the feelings one can have about a stepmom and am glad you were able to eventually appreciate her.
I am impressed that you are hanging in a museum. Wonderful portrait and love the two views.
Oh Gosh....these art pieces is truly amazing and I wish I have taken more pictures with my Father coz indeed they are a treasure.
This is incredible, Naomi!!! I absolutely love the portait of you!!!!!
Your museum posts are fascinating - thank you!

Stunning even though i have never gotten myself into art.. Its just amazing.. I like the one of the woman and then the side view of her i think it is. closer to the bottom of the list.
Oh that painting of you is fab! I know I say this practically every time I visit but gee you've had a wonderfully interesting life. Thanks for sharing. =)
What a wonderful blog tour! There is so much in that woman's slightly pained face. I love the composition of the target shot. I too will take photos for you if we get to DC again anytime soon. Joe grew up there.
I second geewits, above. If all we have to do is demand more posts, you'll be in the blog business forever!
I love that painting of you, it's so clever the way it shows your 2 sides. Is one naughty and the other one nice? D
My favourite painting though is the one by Kenneth Nolan. That's stunning.
I think it shows what a wonderful person that you are that you learnt to see Lily's good points. That couldn't be easy.
I had no idea your background was so full of art. How fantastic!
I am anchanted with these beautiful pieces of art and the great stories! The Museum and it's history is really amazing!
Your portait is just beautiful and creative!
Many hugs to you and to Sweetie.
So interesting Naomi!! Love the painting of you...kind of like a two in one! This whole garden is just wonderful!
How could we be bored when seeing great art from the viewpoint of someone who loves it?
Last weekend I saw the show catalog for a Zornes show opening this weekend. There is a watercolor "On the Diamond Bar" . I recognize the place from just south of here. Still undevoloped area with cows and steer at pasture. It was so much FUN knowing the spot- and here you have YOUR portrait in the collection of a museum. How every so much more special. Cheers!
Such a feast of a post.
The painting of you is fascinating. Did he know that you are almost Gemini - two different people - like my mother?
I was interrupted by MTL and forgot to say how pleased I was to see a Henry Moore:)
Bored?? Never! I love the painting of you, "the two sides..." I appreciate the interpretation, rather than the life-like image and I'm a huge fan of portraits (as you know). Your father's favorite painting is wonderfully done, too...enough to have made him cry. Wow!
"The King and Queen" of the garden is a fine sculpture. I love all the greenery in your first photos.
Your father knew some of the most fascinating people of his time. I'm glad you were able to be meet them and get to know them personally. Thanks for sharing some of those times with us in pictures. Can't wait to see more, my friend!
The two sides of Naomi is incredible! You always have such fascinating things. Wonderful post, full of beauty.
These are wonderful photos, Naomi. the Eakins painting is lovely--I love the expression in her eyes. I can see how if affected your father. Tnaks you.
A very nice collection of art and memories. Amazing collection to be owned by one person. I liked the Madonna and Lilies best.It was fun seeing your blog.
I glanced throuch the photos/art before reading the text and said, "It's Naomi!" How could anyone be bored? I am honored.
What a rich collection of art. I have never been there; so appreciate getting to share it through your photos
All of this is just amazing to look at. I'm glad that you took so many photos when things were happening.
I feel like I've gone on a tour after reading your posts!
I love reading about your varied, rich and interesting life! Thank you for sharing.
WOW just WOW! So interesting Naomi. You have clealry always been surrounded by creativity. What a fantastic heritage and life. You, my dear, could never be boring. I read your lbog posts with my mouth open usually because what a wonderful life you have led and still are. Just wonderful.
How are you?
Just dropping by to say hello.
A big hug to you!
