Spanish Colonial Dream –
On Valentine s Day my husband and I took a day trip to visit the McNay Art Museum in San Antonio, Texas. We arrived as first time visitors and left the grounds considering becoming museum members. The McNay is exactly what the title of this post is- a Spanish colonial dream. From the clay tile roof to the decorative iron trim and balconies, the beauty of this mansion is unreal. This is Texas best kept art secret, y all. The McNay is the first museum of modern art in Texas and it houses American and European paintings, sculptures, and photographs dating back to the 19th century. My favorite was their small collection of Medieval and Renaissance art- I was instantly taken back to the Louvre. Read more about how this beautiful home became the McNay Art museum here. Visiting art galleries has always been so fulfilling and inspirational. There is no right or wrong way to experience art. No matter the subject matter of the piece you are free to interpret according to your thought process and experiences- it s as if the piece becomes yours. Take your time, observe, think, become the artist, become the subject, connect. That s how I experience art.
Where do you find fulfillment and inspiration?
