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!
The month of December 2019 has been a little quieter in terms of site updates being posted. That doesn’t mean that work on the site and the MUDPIX MAGAZINE project has slowed down any. It just means that a lot of things have been getting put together to be brought out in Issue #2 of the magazine and on the website itself. Mudpix.com saw much growth in the amount of pages added in November, and during the month of December, more work was put on getting content in order to be edited for the magazine. The Photo Of The Day series has been on hiatus since December 2019 started and may continue to be on hold for at least through January 2020.
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 new things added to the site for you to check out.
