OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERASUNDAY!!!   for me anyway.

Since I didn’t have to work today, I made the most of the quiet and settled in to watch some movies and eat heavily.  I feel I have accomplished both of these goals, but now feel guilty…or is that just indigestion?  Not sure it matters.  I am now in front of the computer planning todays entry.  I think it’s time to show more of McMurdo’s art work.  This will be the Painted portion of our program.  As I have a nice collection of shots of the permanent collection of pieces which decorate the Galley walls. The first 3 shots are taken at eye level just above the dining tables.  Nearly 5′ square.

The latter 4 paintings are mounted on the walls about 15 feet above where I am standing.  They are each nearly 10′ X 8′ in size.  That will explain why the frames seem to fade out of square.  Each of these is a painting based on original photographs taken at sites around McMurdo Base.  The 2 with the shades of red, pink , orange and blue are as true to the colors of sunset here as an artist can hope to recreate.  In their own way they remind me a lot of Denver’s sunsets, and I find myself regularly at the same tables in the Galley where I can look at them when I feel homesick.  Which of course never happens…sigh.

I’ll see you all soon.
