Happy birthday to me!

Sugar and I took the day off to buzz down to the Denver Art Museum to use our membership but more specifically, to see Frederick Remington: The Color of Knight exhibition. "The Scout: Friends or Foe?" was one of my favorites. I was surprised to see his early night paintings were illustrations for magazines done in mostly blacks, whites and greys. I had a friend in college, a loner, who used to go out at night and paint oils of industrial areas of Tallahassee. She was brilliant and last I heard, she became a doctor working on a reservation to help her people. Lucky them. I imagine that she's painting great prairie landscapes and not so lonely anymore.
