Gift From Leonora

Leonora commissioned this for us from one of her photographs. It's Mattie out on the back porch. I miss Mattie so much. Now I get to see her every day. This is the most wonderful gift she could have given us. Thank you.

Hotel Art

The Melia White House in London has art for sale on the walls. These are two pieces that caught our eyes. They were about a thousand pounds each. Andreas didn't let me buy one for him.

Door Knocker

I saw this painting in one of the squares of Sarajevo.  I liked it, so I bought it for all of 15 euros.

Wine-y Art

We had been wanting one of these landscapes for quite a while - the artist paints in only wine.  Finally we saw one we loved - and bought it.

A Nice Find

We found this piece at the art park.  I negotiated for it in Spanish!  Anyway, it's now time to get it framed at MolDeco.

Pretty Eggs

 Real, hollowed out duck eggs painted prettily in Moldovan style.  They're lovely and they're mine, as a local artist brought them to the embassy to sell.

New Art

The annual Night of Art was April 5th, and we bought this tapestry there.  I'm normally not a fan of yellow and gray, but this piece reminded me of a peacock feather.  I still like it, and it was under $50.  Now to hang it up in the house.

Nistru Scene

I found this at the art market while we were there.  It's an original watercolor of a bend in the Nistru (Dniester) River, and I just loved the composition and color.

Some Art

 Almost two weeks ago, we went downtown and stopped in on the outdoor art show.  Found these from the same artist and bought them.  The top one is a picture of the main square in town.  The bottom is the tower at Orhei.

In the Manner of Torres-Garcia

Even though you've probably never heard the name, you've seen the art of Torres-Garcia.  He was a native Uruguayo who was influential in the modern art movement.  This mural is opposite a museum devoted to him.  It shows the style (but not the colors - he only used red, yellow, blue, black and white) of his work.  Some hangs in MoMA.
