Friday morning at the RA

(at the 241st summer exhibition) (to be exact)

as you walk into Burlington House. . .
.
. . .take a moment to admire your reflection in the silvery sculpture, which is set amongst the courtyard's fountains - notice that they reflect the pattern of the planets in relation to the stars at the birth of Sir Joshua Reynolds, the first president of the Royal Academy, on 16 July 1723. . .
.
. . .seat yourself comfortably in
Humprey Ocean's Love Chair. . .

. . .look up and admire one of
Donald Hamilton Fraser's
blood red skies. . .

. . .or perhaps it's a cloudy sky,
as frequently painted so sensitively by
Fred Cuming. . .
. . .when you're comfortable, pour yourself some tea from
Mary Fedden's Sleeping Cat. . .

. . .and perhaps help yourself to a slice of fruit

(of course, you could always just stick to the coffee and Crunchies) (X)

No paintings of a bacon sandwich, I note.

Mel said...

Yup....grapes, please.

Ever notice grape seeds are slimey?

They'd stick on all sorts of things. LOLOL

k....that's just gross. But it is Friday--so what the heck! ;-)

Mel said...

You don't suppose the kitty is going to mind being disturbed, do you? *laughing*

I don't think we can buy grapes WITH seeds in them anymore?

(the smell of the fish will wake the cat soon enough)

I want an Ocean Love Chair...smile.

Mel said...

Oh, pshaw-- what's the fun in waiting for the cat to awaken.

We still get seeded red grapes. Big purple ones, too!
You folks in California are deprived....yapoorthings...

In the meantime--sun's up, no more stormy weather AND it's threatening to be a nice day with no 'get in the car and go' plans. OMG...and on the weekend noless.

Whatever shall I do?! LOL
