A Visit to the Ringling Art Museum

Beautiful day to explore the Ringling Art Museum in Sarasota, FL. The architecture, grounds and
statuary, including a sculpture of David by Michelangelo, are all worth the trip! The extensive collection of Gothic, Renaissance and Baroque art is fantastic. It includes such notables as Peter Paul Reubens and Frans Hals. A highlight was a special exhibit featuring watercolors from the Ringling collection which will be on display through February 2019. Pieces by Edward Hopper, Childe Hassam and Charles Burchfield were on view. The Ringling collection of Modern and Contemporary Art did not disappoint. I was especially intrigued with three early works by Marcel Duchamp. My favorite among these was one of the artist's wife, Yvonne Duchamp painted in 1907.

Hi Everyone! This is my new painting, "Hope, Fear and Indifference", 30" x 40", oil on canvas. Spent many hours on this one, along with doing a week-long plein air event in NC, fitting in a visit with the grands (totally adorbs!) and taking in fun summer events in St. Pete (gotta love the Burg!). Shifting gears can be tough on "staying in your art zone," but it also helps maintain your sanity! #painter #paintersofinstagram #oilpainter #floridaartist  #artgalleries #artist #fineart #realism #figurepainter #figurepainting #instapainting #art #instaart #woodfieldfineartgallery
