the delightful afternoon!





























































I am at peace pursuing love, hope and happiness. Intoxicated by the richness of charm and beautiful spirit. I fell in love with MCE. MCE has brought joy, love and laughter to me in one afternoon.
Metamorphosis is amazing. I am in love forever. He is amazing I don't.I can't.. leave. I love so much. truly the best experience.
Okay that sounds like a really bad romance novel. this afternoon I had spent some quality time by myself pursuing my first love. My love for art. The Portland Art Museum is exhibiting the wonderful Escher exhibit. As anyone who has ever met me can attest. I have a love for strong contrast and graphic art. They would know that I would have fallen in love with M.C.Escher exhibit. Before today I couldn't spell his name, but that did not matter when you are in love. What is a name?. The joy and pleasurable moment of passion can forgive the forgotten spelling of a name.
later of course i spent the afternoon eating a quiet lunch by myself,if i smoked i could have used a cigarette. I just had to be content breathing the fumes of the cars as i sat outside recalling the beauty of my experience. I could hardly leave friends messages. I was so enthralled by the memories of the day. I am glad i am a member of the art museum. next time I will have to leave my volume on my phone on mute. . I can't wait to see him again. The beauty of his work is being shown at the Portland Art Museum until September. I can't wait for another date with MCE. He is truly amazing. I love MCE. I need to see him again. I could go into withdrawls looking at every intmate details of every small drawing and etching. He is that amazing!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
love,
john

M.C. Escher was a Dutch graphic artist, most recognized for spatial
illusions, impossible buildings, repeating geometric patterns
and his incredible techniques in woodcutting and lithography.
He was a man studied and greatly appreciated by respected
mathematicians, scientists and crystallographers. Yet he had no
formal training in maths nor science. He was a humble man who
considered himself neither as an artist nor as a mathematician.
His work continues to fascinate both young and old across
a broad spectrum of interests.
Intricate repeating patterns, mathematically complex structures,
spacial perspectives all require a "second look".
In Escher's work, what you see the first time is most certainly
not all there is to see.
