Well friends, I am off to Nantucket! It’s been far too long since I’ve enjoyed a summer sojourn. I went nowhere last year. Just languished here in the sticky city. Yuck. But the New England waters off the coast of Cape Cod are calling out my name, “Come, Claudia!! Come rest your weary art modeling muscles on our beautiful shores!”. I predict that Nantucket will return me to the Big Apple well-rested and rejuvenated, with calmness and serenity in my mind. I have my books, my sunscreen, a brand new bathing suit waiting to be broken in, and already made arrangements with a neighbor to put out food for Kate. So I am prepped and ready to go!
I’m NOT bringing my MacBook with me. It’s a vacation after all. So Museworthy will be “postless” for several days. Just letting you all know so you don’t think I’m slacking off. I’ll be back next week and will resume blogging my little butt off. And hopefully I’ll have some nice pictures to share.
So I bid you just a temporary farewell, and have chosen to honor the occasion with a painting by the American artist Winslow Homer. This painting was first exhibited at the National Academy of Design, a place I work regularly.
From the year 1870, this is Eagle Head, Manchester, Massachusetts (High Tide), oil on canvas:
Much love, and hugs, and kisses to everyone. See you soon!
