After five days of monochrome, I thought I'd go back to a splash of colours with another look at Morning Star, the Alex Janvier mural at the newly renamed Museum of History over in Gatineau. This is a work of art I'll never get tired of, whether it's seen from down on the ground level (where there are very comfortable chairs for those peering up), or ascending to the top of the Grand Hall and viewing it up close.
I love the colours!ReplyDelete
That beautiful Morning Star sure brightens a great many grey days!ReplyDelete
Took a moment to realise I was looking up not down. CoolReplyDelete
If it's seen from down , I think, is better, because it would be thought that one looked in this way.ReplyDelete
Splash indeed. That is spectacular.ReplyDelete
What a wonderful work of art, it's colouring even the most grey day, I think!ReplyDelete
Oo! That's fantastic!ReplyDelete
Very nice , I like the bright colours.ReplyDelete
I can see why you never tire of it. How's the weather? ;)ReplyDelete
What beautiful bright colors! Love it! So it's on the ceiling? It must look beautiful from down the ground level and also great to see detail up close. I like that the place got chairs so you can view the art comfortably :-)ReplyDelete
those colors are so cheerful. i enjoy them. ( :ReplyDelete
Well, it a draw to the upper levels that's for sure. Color wheel!ReplyDelete
I love it! Full of warmth.ReplyDelete
This is a pleasant image, William !ReplyDelete
Love the colours and I think of the four seasons...
That is gorgeous...it would certainly banish winter blahs!ReplyDelete
Bright and cheerful and a nice contrast to your most recent pics!ReplyDelete
That's a busy piece with lots of bright color and many different shapes. I can see why you'd take a while to look at it.ReplyDelete
a nice way to jump back in to the palette! :)ReplyDelete
The quite common fascination with greyscales and monochromatic images escapes me. I love colors and this picture is simply great!ReplyDelete
Oh wow, that is stunning!ReplyDelete
@Jen: I certainly think so.
@Merisi: it does!
@Bill: it's seven stories up, so it's quite a view!
@Tomas: closer up, of course, it's seemingly all around you when you're at the top balcony.
@Stuart: it's such a beautiful work.
@Revrunner: it's a pleasure to show it.
@Marianne: it really brightens up the day.
@Debs: today it's sunny but cool.
@Tamago: it's spectacular from both vantage points.
@Birdman: and quite a wheel.
@Denise: it certainly draws the eye.
@Karl: it does have a four seasons look to it.
@Jane and Chris: it would!
@Lowell: I thought it was a very good counterpoint to the monochrome.
@Red: there always seems to be something fresh to look at when I see it.
@VP: thank you!
Very pretty! I would never get tired of looking at it either.ReplyDelete
This is the kind of modern art I like! Beautiful colors!ReplyDelete
Oh that's nice, as you say after a few b&w's a colour explosion is most welcome :)ReplyDelete
Definitely colorful. I'd strain my neck looking up!ReplyDelete
Beautiful! Love it so colorful!ReplyDelete
Thanks! I loooove this artist!ReplyDelete

@Lois: it lightens the spirits.ReplyDelete
@Grace: and this is such a good example.
@Bibi: the chairs, fortunately, make looking up very easy!
@Luis: thank you!
@Ciel: he's quite an extraordinary talent.
@Marleen: that seems to be the consensus.
@Norma: they stand out so well.
It reminds me of how much I loved the kaleidoscopes as a child. It is certainly colorful.ReplyDelete
A perfect choice to bring some colors back!ReplyDelete
This is a fascinating colorful work. Bravo!ReplyDelete
After the last few days it is a sugar rush of colour.ReplyDelete
What a creative and uplifting use of color and design!ReplyDelete
Marvelous! Sometimes we miss things because we don't look up.ReplyDelete
Is this a new one? I've been, but don't remember seeing it. I used to take students there for field trips. 'good old days!'ReplyDelete
I agree that this art id wonderful!ReplyDelete
So lovely. I can see why you like this. So fresh!ReplyDelete
This beautiful. It almost reminds me of a suNflower and a clock.ReplyDelete
I like that! A modern take on what we usually consider historical art form.ReplyDelete
I can clearly see (no pun intended, William) why this would be a favorite photo opp and it's a place I would regularly return to as well.ReplyDelete
@Mari: it is!ReplyDelete
