Thomas Moran

I was at the Minneapolis Institute (museum) the other day.
For the first time, I was allowed to snap a few pics of some
of my favorite art.
Ladies and Gentelmen, I give you Thomas Moran.
Have a wonderful view, have a wonderful week!

It is always great to go stand before a painting.. to stand where the artist himself stood...right in front of the painting.... imagining the strokes as they went down..It is great to go to a favorite museum and walk up to a favorite painting. Thanks for sharing it with us.
