Transmundane Tuesday and Alice Neel
Hi Slowpokes. It’s the first Tuesday of the month, which means it’s transmundane Tuesday. Here are your prompts for the month of June:
Arts & Entertainment
In other news, I saw the Alice Neel exhibit at the de Young museum in San Francisco and it was electrifying. She’s known as a portraitist, but one of my favorite pieces was a cityscape.
I did some drawing at the de Young. If you’ve never spent a day drawing in a museum; if it’s been a while (it had been for me); if you need some inspiration: I recommend it. If you can somehow make it to this extraordinary Alice Neel show, all the better. But any museum with something to look at and a place to sit works for me.
This exhibit was inspiring in a thousand ways but do you know what I keep coming back to?

Happy June, folks!
