F is for Fine Arts

The New Britain Museum of American Art is a hidden jewel. It’s tucked away in the ageing industrial city of New Britain and it is worth hours upon hors of exploration. For the past few months, it has been host to an exhibit of the art of Maurice Sendak, writers/illustrator of many classic children’s books, especially “Where the Wild Things Are.” I read that so many times to my children that I know it by heart. John & I are members of the museum, so we pop up there often on a Sunday afternoon to browse. This past Sunday, I was able to snap a man who was sketching from one of the paintings on the wall. A fisheye lens captures the whole gallery, including the door into the Sendak exhibit. The man on the left studying the artwork is John.

    I’m in agreement…the fisheye is super for this image. Looks like a great place to while away some hours during this long long winter. Sendak is one of my favorites especially his “Little Bear” series.
