I spent time this morning looking at the Guggenheim Museum's website. Imagine my delight when I found the past exhibitions' page from when I visited in 2006. I was there all by myself and was able to enjoy the museum at my own leisure. Me, at the
Guggenheim. It was absolutely wonderful!
They had an interesting exhibit in the museum's rotunda by Zaha Hadid, an architectural artist. It was quite spectacular. As I wandered through the museum's rooms of collections, I was inspired by the vibrant colors of Kandinsky; the incredible beauty of the works of Cezanne; the colors and lines of Jackson Pollock along with some of his early work; and, the exquisite paintings of Manet. What a feast for the eyes.

Mountains & Hills Shall Sing
36 x 60
acrylic on textured canvas
When I was a teenager, I would climb to the top of a hill and talk to God. In the fall as the trees were changing, the hills became like a symphony of colors. I always felt as if God was painting His magnificent landscape just for me.
My parents eventually sold the land,
but the memories of my communion with God still bring joy to my heart.
Mountains & Hills Shall Sing is painted from those memories and the knowledge that God still speaks to my heart. Fall will always be my favorite season of the year.
So shall my word be that goes out from my mouth; it shall not return to me empty, but it shall accomplish that which I purpose, and shall succeed in the thing for which I set it.
“For you shall go out in joy and be led forth in peace; the mountains and the hills before you shall break forth into singing, and all the trees of the field shall clap their hands.
Instead of the thorn shall come up the cypress; instead of the brier shall come up the myrtle; and it shall make a name for the Lord, an everlasting sign that shall not be cut off.”
