Cezanne and Beyond

Someone asked me why I do not blog as much as I once did. The answer is pretty simple. I just do not do as much as I once did. My life has fallen into a wonderfully comfortable routine with just a dash of interesting adventures every couple weeks. I was reflecting on who I was when I first started the blog and things have changed.

However, I won't stop blogging. It will just be less often.

Last week, I went to the Philadelphia Museum of Art to take in the latest exhibit called Cezanne and Beyond. Out of the exhibitions that have come to the museum since living here, it was my favorite. It shared the elements and importance of Cezanne in the lives of other artists and his influence on the great artists of modern art. Taking a Cezanne piece and placed it next to a Mondrian or Matisse, the museum described the influence of the master Cezanne to these artists. I loved it. It probably had something to do with all of the Matisse in the exhibit too. He's one of my favorites. If the exhibit comes to an art museum near you, take it in.

I'm jealous of your access to art museums. I love art museums.
