Clifford Still Museum Opens

Clifford and visitor by Diane Huntress


The Anticipation is over.

The new Clifford Still Museum is open!

This visitor seated to look at this painting of mostly dark tones with red lightning plus white yellow vertical streaks seems to match in line, color and gesture.  It could look suspiciously set up, but it was not.  My attention as I entered this Hitchcock Gallery from a little zen-like terrace was on the painting, then upward to the ceiling treatment with mini oval windows and then onto the woman as she sat down.  Love that split second thought of Henri Cartier-Bresson and camera grab that is one of my reasons for getting up everyday.

What’s a photographer to do?  You are a non-working guest at a wonderful, fun, artful gala event and your natural urge is to capture it all.  You have another sip of the fabulous extra dry, extra dirty martini with three olives, get out your iphone and take the picture!  The DJ is spinning and it’s time to dance!
