With this post I am starting a new category on the blog – Art In Museums. In it I will share art I find on museum websites that is worth sharing.
In a search to find interesting websites related to bridges, I stumbled on the website for the Crystal Bridges Museum Of American Art in Bentonville, Arkansas tonight (Saturday, November 9th, 2019 at around 7 p.m.). I began exploring one of it’s collections and I found this striking sketch of a male nude by John Trumbull drawn in circa 1798 that I think is great and would like to share for anyone interested to view it.
I have digitally enhanced the image above for better contrast over the original image. You can see the original image at Crystal Bridges Museum Of American Art by clicking here.

This Website Is Growing!
This month in November 2019, a lot of work is going on to expand content for you to enjoy. While I’m certainly focused on completing the first issue of MUDPIX MAGAZINE and getting it available for sale, I’m also adding lots of new pages to the website. Some of the pages are relevant only to this website’s content specifically, and other pages are basically link lists providing access to some of my favorite articles from favorite websites I like to explore personally. In this process of adding new pages, I’ve also been working on cleaning up (moving) some miscellaneous content around the website to make it easier when browsing on mobile devices (smartphones and tablets). Head over to the Updates page to see what all the new pages are that have been added recently. Keep your eyes peeled throughout the next few months. There’s bound to be tons of pages added for you to check out.
