The art in my heart

I want to go to THIS exhibit at the

BYU MOA


(click on her name to learn more about her)

artiste magnifique

(I don't know French, I am completely making up how to spell and say things)

She raised her family in Cokeville, Wyoming of all places

who knew??


Minerva (or Nervs, if you will)
painted the incredible mural that graces the "world" room in the Manti Temple
if you've been there you know the one I'm talking about
that mural always fascinates me every time I'm there
I love the use of color
the diversity of the people
the intensity and chaos of the scenes
it seems such an appropriate commentary on how the world really is
and I love it for that reason alone
Manti is, of course, my very favorite temple
I love it's rich history
my heart never fails to skip a beat when I spot it
keeping watch on the hill
I love it because it reminds me of that day
and that
families are forever
and I needed that today

I also love Nervs and her beautiful paintings. I have NEVER been to the Manti temple. I should go there.

I love the Manti temple. It is my favorite. I will pay closer attention to that room next time I am there.

you know when you have all these plans to do productive things? or at least get to bed a little earlier? well, thanks to you kalli ko, i have been reading about nervy-t instead of going to bed.

but it was worth it. thanks for sharing.

brooke,
I think reading blogs is productive.

at least I hope it is, because then I wonder what else I'd do to curb my boredom at work all day long...
