Bosty wanted to explore one of the museums in the Washington, DC area, so he decided to stop by the National Gallery’s East Wing. He was excited to see artwork by famous artists like Pablo Picasso.
As he wandering around the museum, he was drawn to Piet Mondrian’s simple geometric shapes and bold colors.
Wassily Kandinsky’s colorful abstract work also caught his eye, and he enjoyed seeing one of Gustav Klimt’s figurative and patterned paintings.
Wayne Thiebaud’s cake painting made Bosty feel a little hungry. Cake, anyone?
He spent a little time staring in awe at one of Jackson Pollock’s large paintings that was part of the Abstract Expressionist movement.
Wow, is that an Andy Warhol? Bosty is a big fan of pop art.
He also enjoys Impressionist paintings, and was excited to see some work by Claude Monet.
Bosty took a final look around and enjoyed seeing Alexander Calder’s large mobile pieces. He was a little worn out from wandering around every floor of the museum, so he went outside to enjoy the sunny spring weather.
Before leaving the National Mall, he strolled around the National Gallery’s Sculpture Garden. It was a beautiful day outside, and it was a wonderful day to see some colorful works of art.
Animals are one of my favorite subjects to tackle when it comes to piecing together my collages. Here’s a piece where I was commissioned to collage a dog that has two different color eyes. I’m thinking my next couple of collages will involve some more wildlife.
In other news, I’m planning to get started with exploring a couple different mediums. As much as I enjoy making collages, it’s always good to change things up every once in a while.
A lot of the people in the area are obsessed with their dogs–on a busy street a couple blocks from my house, there are two (not one, but two) dog bakeries. It was only fitting that I’d do a park scene that included a little dog.
And I’m done with this series for now. I’m off to work on cutting paper for my next projects. Perhaps another portrait? A flower? Another animal piece? We’ll see where my inspiration leads me.
