Yesterday I went skating at Somerset House with My Beloved, then we took Boris Bikes to Tate Britain and saw the Late Turner Exhibition.

There's something about seeing famous paintings in real life that you just can't beat. Some of them seem less wonderful (I'm thinking of Manet here). Most of them are more impressive. I loved the picture of a ship in a snow storm and yet the reproduction here really doesn't do it justice.

Sounds like a wonderful day. Going to art galleries makes me happy, and those Turners are wonderful for sure.

Simon, it really was a wonderful day and the exhibition is really good.

Greetings, my kind friend,

My humans totally understand what you mean about seeing famous paintings up close. Some amaze and some can sure disappoint.

A ship in a snowstorm. Very interesting blend of colours and images. I did a painting of a polar bear in a snowstorm. All you could see were two black dots representing the eyes! Arf!

Pawsitive wishes,

Penny :)

Hi Penny,

Thank you for visiting my blog when I know how busy you are, what with being a modest internet superstar and all. I'd love to see your amazing picture of a polar bear in a snowstorm. At least he was facing you. If he'd had his back to you there'd be even less to see!

I hope your new situation is working out for all of you.
