It is the day we look at an artist and it seems that Edward Hopper is a good one to do that. I could talk about him a lot, but I thought you might like a video.
Today I took a trip up to the Bendigo Art Gallery to see the exhibition Tudors to Windsors. It was an exhibition looking at the Royal Family from the Tudors up to the present day.
Today for my Influencing Me post I thought we might have a quick look at Still Life in art. My examples are paintings, but we are seeing more and more photographic still life as well.

In the past, I always enjoyed doing the Influencing Me posts and I would like to try doing them again. This is a repost of the one I did on Edward Hopper and it seemed like a good idea to show it again. I hope you enjoy it.
It seems like a good idea to start doing the Influencing Me posts again. It is great to be showing the work of artists that I really admire. Since I had to delete them from my other page, it is a good opportunity to review ones I’ve done previously again. I won’t be doing it […]
The other day I made another trip to the National Gallery of Victoria to see the Winter Masterpiece exhibition, Van Gogh and the Seasons. The first time I went it was so crowded you couldn’t see it, let alone enjoy it. I’m happy to say the advice I was given about going on a weekday and early […]
It is Sunday morning here and I’m sitting here listening to the sounds of our roof being replaced. With all the rain we’ve been having the guys replacing the roof decided to make the most of the good weather and do it over the weekend. More rain is predicted next week so it is probably […]
This post is more about paintings and the photos are not that great I’m afraid. I had a trip to the National Gallery of Victoria recently with my daughter. We went there to see the Bill Henson exhibition, but we also ended up looking at lots of other paintings as well.
