I'm so lucky.   DH took me into Chicago to the
Smart Museum.    I wanted to see the 
exhibit (which closes Jan 20th).

What a fantastic exhibit!   Loaded with wonderful
prints from Japanese and French artists.
The display was lovely and there were books
open to various sketches, too.

They had an i-pad (or something) that showed the 
many images needed to create one print - also, video
showing how the woodblocks were hand carved.
Provided a wonderful introduction to these creative prints.

and the COLORS!   Rich and elegant.   Some
full of details - some more modern and classy.
Try not to miss - if you are in the neighborhood!

Special thx to Marjorie
about this exhibit.

Did I mention I purchased
the exhibit catalog?   It is loaded
with color photos ; )
