As with Rembrandt 4-days ago, I do not think of Edgar Degas as one the artists that will make my top 10 though I sure have no problems with either his cleverly rendered paintings or his exquisite sculptures of dancers. I have seen quite a bit of his work in Paris and in New York — and I notice that I invariably will dally around, admiring his talent from different angles and different perspectives. Though most think of him in terms of ‘ballerinas’ he sure was adept at painting nudes — as you can see from the gallery above. He made it to the 20th century, dying in Paris, during WW I

Inexplicably and inexcusably this was my first time to the Castle itself at the ‘Castle in the Clouds‘, Moultonborough, New Hampshire, though I had been there last year, with Teischan to go horseback riding. I was beyond impressed. All-round spectacular experience. So much so that I got a 1-year membership on the spot. Hope to go back soon now that I have the lay of the land. Highly recommended.

Went to ‘Castle in the Clouds‘, Moultonborough, New Hampshire, on Tuesday, July 18, 2017. First time I had visited the Castle per se  — though I had been there last year, with Teischan to go horseback riding. I was so impressed that I got a 1-year membership. Hope to go back soon. The flowers were spectacular.

Went to ‘Castle in the Clouds‘, Moultonborough, New Hampshire, on Tuesday, July 18, 2017. First time I had visited the Castle per se or done the trails by the waterfalls — though I had been there last year, with Teischan to go horseback riding. Saw most of these mushrooms on that trail. After the rain we had had over the last few days the ground was wet.
