Life Imitates Art: Annaghmakerrig and New York City

Such an interesting Photo Challenge this week on The Daily Post!

Find a piece of art, recreate or re-enact it.

Or take a new version of one of your photos.

What self chose to do was use this picture of a painting that hung in her cottage at the Tyrone Guthrie Centre in Annaghmakerrig. It was 2014, her first time in that magical place. She didn’t note the name of the artist, boo:

Then she went combing through her archives, and found a picture she took in her brother-in-law’s apartment in New York City, a vase of red flowers standing in his kitchen window:

Stay tuned, dear blog readers. Stay tuned.

    Nice. For me, Art reflects life. , and Art follows after life.

      Bernadette’s repeating imagery was a boat, a ladder, clouds. It spoke so much to me of hope, and also the particular landscape she is from (west Cork). Really, art has no boundaries.
