American Impressionism in Scotland!
During my visit, Frieda & I went to the Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art to see the American Impressionism exhibit. She had visited earlier in the summer and had it as an option on her long list of things for us to do while I was there. Of course I said yes to this! I love the Impressionistic style. Frieda shared a bit about our National Gallery visit on her blog the day we went -September 19, 2014. This blog post shows how I used my Gelli printing from the other day and combined it with the photographs I took that day and a bit of doodling. I'm very happy with this spread!

Above, the "No Miracles" sign is an installation by artist Nathan Coley.
We saw a similar but different sign by the same artist at Jupiter Artland.
The postcard in the middle was sent to me by Frieda. This painting is part of the exhibit.
She picked it up on her earlier visit to the museum and sent it to me saying she was looking forward to my arrival, looking out for me, just like this woman in the painting by Benson.
Frieda checks out her photos so far, when we stopped for lunch in the Cafe! Perhaps she's found her blip?
We visited the National Gallery in the morning and in the afternoon we went to Rosslyn Chapel & Castle -what a fine day!
