at 6:30 this morning i had no idea
what i'd be doing today except
the laundry. that was done by 8:30
so i decided to see the
keith haring show at the
i especially enjoyed his
journals and sketch books
and videos of him painting.
i always liked his subway chalk drawings.
it never occurred to me to pilfer them,
as it obviously did to others whose framed examples
look somehow out of place on gallery walls.
i liked some of the earlier
work in the show
still, a little iconic black and white haring
goes a long way and there's quite a lot.
i always enjoy visiting the gallery in the education department
where they show work from children's art classes.
the newly redesigned and restocked gift shop
now features lots of work by brooklyn artisans
and craftsfolk. very cool. expensive...
but cool. kept thinking
if i only had a sander...
(yes that is the price.
ten small wooden blocks for $85)
i was really too tired for the brooklyn botanic garden
though it's just next door.
still the crabapple trees lured me in...
and the cherry...
even lilacs were in bloom
