As with Rembrandt 4-days ago, I do not think of Edgar Degas as one the artists that will make my top 10 though I sure have no problems with either his cleverly rendered paintings or his exquisite sculptures of dancers. I have seen quite a bit of his work in Paris and in New York — and I notice that I invariably will dally around, admiring his talent from different angles and different perspectives. Though most think of him in terms of ‘ballerinas’ he sure was adept at painting nudes — as you can see from the gallery above. He made it to the 20th century, dying in Paris, during WW I

This was the artist behind this. Click image to access his BREATHTAKINGLY amazing Website. Wow. Wow. Wow.

I went to UNH (Durham) to meet with my friends at the ‘Confucius Institute‘ to discuss the logistics for their involvement in the upcoming, June 24, 2017, ‘Concord Multicultural Festival‘. Saw these, on Route 125 on the way out. Though, as usual, I had my camera, in this case my new Sony a7 II, right at hand, on the passenger seat, I did not stop but made a mental note to do so on the way back. And I did.

Appears to be a project by the Barrington Middle School (BMS) and this amazing artist Mark Ragonese. I had never heard of him BUT glad I was able to read his name on one of my photos. {SMILE} There are many benefits I derive from taking these pictures. {SMILE}

Enjoy. This has INSPIRED me. I would like to try this.
