Sunday Afternoon


So what do you do in the middle of January in central Minnesota when one is waiting for Spring?  The gummy’s and I made some triple berry jelly is what we did.  The market had the berries on sale anywho and I only have one jar of triple berry left; so this was a good weekend to make some jelly to some restocking of the pantry.  The only downside was Mom came and got them early so they didn’t have any to take home with them but I’ll have a couple jars for them next weekend.  That and I promised them that we will make some strawberry jam the next time they come spend the night.  That appeased them for now.

Art Sunday #158: Marc Chagall – The betrothed and Eiffel Tower


“The betrothed and Eiffel Tower” shows us the two favorite cities of Chagall. It’s hard not to notice the Eiffel tower – the bright blue recognizable, it fills the background. And under it – Vitebsk. Lower right corner leaves no doubt of the roof of the city huddled under the flying angel and the soaring tower. “Artist in Paris”– said Marc Chagall. And confessing to Paris in his infinite love and trying to say about him the best that you can, exclaimed: “Paris, you’re my Vitebsk!”. Indeed, in his paintings wonderfully side by side the two cities.
