|A courtyard scene at the McNay Art Museum.|
Here are some of our (my) favorite pieces from the contemporary artworks in the museum. (I'll picture some of the more famous works in a future post.)
These two oil paintings by American artist Julie Heffernan fascinated both of us. We started the museum visit with these two paintings, and ended the visit by studying them once again. The depth of field (as well as depth of meaning) was incredible and we could have gazed at them for hours ... if a very late lunch hadn't finally called us!
