My second Nashville stop was the Tennessee State Museum where I viewed the “Rau Collection: Six Centuries with the European Masters.” The show included artwork from the early Renaissance (1425) through the mid-20th century (1955). Each room, of the exhibition, had a different color to denote specific artistic schools. In my design I used the room colors for each stripe as well as the background of my painting. Beginning with the “to” and continuing with this painting, I used a color and its tints. It is an effect I sometimes use in my dot art.

  1. I must be hungry, Mo. The softer pastels in this made me think of saltwater taffy. :D HA! I like it. It's pretty. Have a good weekend.

  2. Daisy:

    Thank you. : )

    In New Orleans we have the Roman Candy Man who sells hand pulled taffy out of his wagon. It used to be pulled by a mule. He sells three flavors: chocolate, vanilla and strawberry.

    Save some of that hunger for Turkey Day. You've got a week to go.

    'Have a great weekend.

    Mo : )

  3. How cool, Mo! I've never heard of taffy being sold from a wagon like that. I always think of it being sold to tourists here in the gift shops at amusement parks and zoos and such. :D

  4. Daisy:

    The taffy is sold in stick form - 1 foot sticks, I think. I found a site that sells the Roman Candy by the dozen.

    There's a brief history about the Roman Candy too.

    Mo : )
