    • Thank you Erica. That is one of my favorite places and I get to visit about three times a year.

      • It really looks great! I understand that it’s one of your favorite places. It would be mine to… I think. ;)

  3. Your shots are fantastic! I’m living here in Chicago and I have never seen such wonderful and unique shots of the Bean. Love especially “The Bosom of the Bean”.

    • Thank you Anita. I get to visit Chicago a few times a year. You might check the Chicago menu button in the header for past visits.

      • OK, I’ll do that. Forgot to say how much I enjoy seeing your people shots,too. Maybe because I am now putting people in my paintings : )

        • Anita, I find your paintings to be relaxing and dreamy. From my “Art Lovers” series (header menu button) you can see that I am a frequent visitor to Houston art galleries.

        • Thank you so much, Ron. I’ve seen your photos many times from the Houston art scene. I love seeing what is going on there. When I paint, I feel that I enter a zen like state (really!), so maybe that comes across as “relaxing and dreamy”

  20. The Bean is a great image maker. Its shape and surface have a distorted quality that are irresistible to artists.
