ROSY AT THE RINGLING

I snapped my mom last Summer on the Veranda of the Ringling Museum in Sarasota, Florida. The entire estate is painted a beautiful rosy shade and the use of marble everywhere borders on the obscene. The architecture is stunning and the works of art by major Masters are amazing.

Tell ur Mom she is gorgeous! And those marble floors are to die for. They look like pearlescent pink to me, it complements the walls!

I had a good laugh, at first, when I read this post, I thought it said, that you "slapped" your Mom. Oh, I think I am feeling the after effects of an all 24 hour 10 year old birthday fest. I love that Museum...and your Mom sure looks like a rosy coral belle!
Happy weekend dear Anne.

Anne,

Your Mom is the perfect focal point in this photo. Her outfit blends beautifully with the background and she presents herself with feminine beauty and poise. Against this wonderful architecture two wonderful sights together.

Nice shot Anne. I worked at the Ringling Museum from 83-86. Just a fantastic place to visit and to take photos and video. Also I'm a retired self taught artist. Caribbean island art. Hope you can see my blog with all my work as your time allows. All the best.
