Quote of the day: 30 April

Contemplation is a precious gift of God. We can prepare ourselves and discipline our lives, bodies, spirits, and souls to receive that gift. But like every gift, the attainment of the gift depends on the Giver.

Aloysius Deeney, O.C.D.
Afternoon – Yellow Room
Frederick Carl Frieseke (American, 1874-1939)
Oil on canvas, 1910
Indianapolis Museum of Art at Newfields
Gallery label: The colorful patterns and glowing sunshine are signature elements of Frieseke’s work. Frieseke’s paintings of female figures made him one of America’s most popular Impressionists. The artist spent his summers painting at Giverny, France near the home of French Impressionist Claude Monet.
