It takes a very clever person to make one big George out of a whole lot of little Georges.   This is the work of Ray Beldner, folded and sewn U.S. currency, titled E Pluribus Unum.

This lady keeps a pretty constant eye on that rainbow in the background.   I couldn't find a label for her statue but the rainbow painting is Rainy Season in the Tropics, 1866, by Frederic Edwin Church (1826 - 1900).

This is the trippy and far-out work of the fabulous Georgia O'Keefe, titled Petunias, 1925.   Oil on hardboard.

And this bright ceramic fruit makes quite a splash.   But then, there is no indication of how big the pieces of fruit are.   (((they're a foot or two tall)))   Next time I'll try to include something (((like the head of a security guard))) so size can be judged.

And if this mountain looks familiar, yes, that's Mount Tamalpais, the beloved centerpiece of Marin County.   This was painted in 1870 by William Keith (1838 - 1911) and is titled;   A Broadside of Mount Tamalpais, oil on canvas.

George--Cool!
Fruit--The security guard would definitely be an interesting addition.

We're not allowed to take photos in our art museum.

On my browser (Firefox), the pictures sort of hang over the edge of the vertical pale gray/blue strip but I can still see them and the larger size is pretty nice. So, it's worth it.

Bigger is better and I have a crappy old Netscape browser on an old version of Windows and it looks just fine.

Wow. I've been missing some good shots yesterday! :)

Explorer is viewing your blog just fine. I'll be right back on Firefox.

Firefox for XP is fine, too. I can view the blog entirely even though I'm on a 15" monitor (yeah, yeah I know, maybe Santa we'll hear me ;). I'll let you know tomorrow if there is any problem viewing with an even older browser (don't ask!).

Odd, I lost my entire comment. Let's try this again.

Firefox for XP reports no problem either, and I'm on a 15" monitor (yeah, I know... maybe Santa will notice this year? ;)

I'll try tomorrow with an older computer (don't ask and I won't tell ;).

My apologies for all the comments. Please feel free to delete a few! FF actually has a little problem here, when I post a comment, I don't see it until I post another one. Maybe it's on my end. Don't worry. TF
