It was an uncharacteristically beautiful "77° summer day" in January in Pasadena and we had a wonderful time. Thought I'd share some of my photos of the exhibits and the grounds. I had not been there since I was a child and went on a field trip to see "Pinkie" and "Blue Boy" in the European Collection!! Sometimes it does the soul a world of good to take a day off from "real life" and just soak in some beauty!!
|This was a great chair -- hand painted with a peacock feather in the back. Wouldn't I just LOVE to have something like this!!|
|This is by Helen Frankenthaler.|
|Here is one of Sam Maloof's signature rockers.|
|The former "main house" houses the European Collection. Wouldn't you love to relax with a cup of tea on this over-sized porch?|
|I can remember seeing this as a child on our field trip here!|
