Shot of Inspiration in Orlando

I got a awesome note in the mail from my Aunt Linda, basically making my dreams come true. After a discussion about Norman Rockwell on Mothers Day, she then let me know of an exhibit in Orlando and catered to practically all the expenses. We stayed at the Florida Mall Hotel for 2 days and below is Black Angus Room service.
Here is the museum located in beautiful Lock Haven.

I couldn't take pictures inside the exhibit, too many security guards(managed a couple).
Here are two Rauschenbergs
Chuck Close and another Rauschenberg
The Problem We All Live With looked like it had actual gravel in the paint (sidewalk) and the cement wall behind her is beautifully textured.
The Art Critic, on the actual palette, the colors are just clumps of paint.
Seeing these works was pure joy and provided a great inspiration boost. Norman Rockwell went out of his way to create the best works possible and had an incredible work ethic (7 days a week/8-5pm)
Again, thanks to my Aunt Linda for making this possible.
Now its time to raise the bar...

Wow, Scott, you've honored me in such a flattering manner! I'm speechless. I may have gotten more joy from this than you.
It was great fun dining and spending time with you and Erica on Saturday night.
