Here are some of my faves from our wicked awesome autumn jaunt to the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston. The MFA recently opened a new wing for arts from the Americas, so many of my pix are from there, but as usual, what I’m drawn to are diverse materials, time periods, shapes, and styles, which will filter into my work in various ways over time. Enjoy!, and see more influence, pictorial posts here. (Hover your cursor over any pic, or click each, for more info.)
Beautiful images from your trip; very inspirational! Have a great time with them and looking forward to seeing what you create.
By the way, I bought your dvd and I love it!
Loved the photos of the Boston MFA. It’s been a long time since I have been to Boston (from Pennsylvania), so now I know I must get up there and see the new American wing. I especially enjoyed the photo of the Fraktur by Daniel Otto. That is one of the best that I have seen of his. I wrote the book
Faith & Family: Pennsylvania German Heritage in York County Area Fraktur.
Daniel Otto did at least one birth and baptismal certificate for a York County child, but it may have been done after the family moved a bit north to Centre County. Thanks again for sharing the beautiful photos.
Thanks, Ladies! Glad you enjoyed the pictorial.
