One thing you may not know about Ft. Worth, Texas is they have fabulous museums here.
Today, Pops and I took in 3 of our favorites. First stop, the Amon Carter Museum of American Art.
This museum is simply one of our favorites.
Why? you may ask?
Well, they have an amazing display of “western” art from Frederic Remington and Charles M. Russell. I’m not sure why, but we never tire looking at their paintings and bronze sculptures.
Here’s one of our favorite Remington’s:
This photo doesn’t do justice to the size and vibrancy of this painting as you see it when you’re standing in the entrance hall of the museum.
When you get up close, the horses literally seem like they’re going to gallop off the canvas. It’s fabulous!
Another of my favorites in this museum is this one by Thomas Cole:
I love it beyond the fact that the name “Hunter” is in the title.
I love it because I can picture living this life – being in my little log cabin, with my children and my garden. The emotion it evokes is priceless.
This is the painting I stared at most today. Just dreaming…I simply love it.
I’ll have more artwork to share later…but for now:
