Today's Photograph

sculpture by Rodin

I spent the afternoon at the Art Gallery of Ontario. I am glad I happen to have my camera in my hands when I saw the above. It just lasted a second. His mom called and he ran away.

If you are at the AGO see the Art as Therapy exhibit. I loved it! Really interesting angle for an art exhibit. Good on you, curator!

"If you can talk about it, why paint it?" 
artist Francis Bacon

My friend and I had a debate about that quote. I said, "If you can paint it why would you do it in fabric?" She countered, "If you can take a photograph of it why would you paint it?"

Whenever I see a textile exhibit I ask myself, "Why did the artist choose textile as the medium?"
