Degas - some words of wisdom!

On January 6th. of 2015, there was a posting of Plein Air paintings of the Gardens at Waters East.  Today’s posting is going to once again post those same three original artworks first published under the heading:  A Quote – Degas.  In this posting those three paintings will now be “contrasted” with photographs taken near where those paintings were created.  You’ll get to appreciate both the artist interpretation and the natural view as seen from a photograph.  Hope you like the “contrast” in this posting of the gardens here along the shores of Lake Michigan.

“A painting requires a little mystery, some vagueness, some fantasy. When you always make your meaning perfectly plain you end up boring people.”

NOTE:   Since this Blog is meant to be an accurate journal of the gardens;
no photos are “staged”, “arranged”, or ”photo-shopped” in anyway.
What is posted – is what it here.  It is what it is.
