When HubbyBear and I traveled to Vermont
this last Oct 2014, one of our "Artist Pilgrimage"
stops was to the Bennington Historical Museum
in Bennington Vt. to view works by beloved
Artist Grandma Moses
It was a marvelous experience and I highly recommend
making this a stop if you are visiting the area!
The scene across from the museum
indulged the eyes and readied the heart in anticipation
for the paintings and works inside!!
Everywhere outside were artful
works or pieces of history to see
I was so pleased to see this beautiful
driftwood statue by Rita Dee!!
needle embroidery pieces as gifts, until her arthritis became
too intense. That's when some one suggested she take up painting!!!
entrance shot before we went inside!!
Once I came face to face with her very brush strokes
I was only a nose away and just stared and looked
at each painting and every detail....I was in awe, and just
appreciated her intentions and expressions so very much more!!
This table was her painting table that she also decorated!
I got down on my knees and saw what was painted underneath!
Anna Mary Robertson Moses September 7, 1860 – December 13, 1961
