“The greater danger for most of us lies not in setting our aim too high and falling short; but in setting our aim too low, and achieving our mark.”
– Michelangelo Buonarroti
Beth Parker Art Window Display – March 2012
Glenna McBride, the Executive Director of the Eufaula Area Arts Council, surprised me with this window. I think I have around 40 pieces in that gallery… mostly small of course. The large painting, Little Pink House, is 24″ x 48″. I get a little giggle when I drive by in the mornings. Thanks, Glenna and the board of directors!
Check out the reflection of the buildings in the window. We have such a cute downtown.
About Michelangelo Buonarroti
Michelangelo Buonarotti, the Renaissance sculptor and painter, is considered one of the world’s greatest artists. He was born in Tuscany in 1475. He apprenticed to a painter at age 13, infuriating his father, who considered art menial work. By age 25, he had sculpted one of his finest works, the Pietà, in St. Peter’s. Working alone, he took four years to paint more than 400 figures on the Sistine Chapel ceiling. He also designed St. Peter’s dome and is perhaps best known for his iconic statue of David. He died in 1564.
