What does the word “intricate” mean to you? It could be the deep, fibrous bark on the ancient oak tree in your yard. Maybe it’s the robin’s nest under construction near your window — that ornithological engineering marvel of mud and twigs. It could be the treasured piece of needlepoint your grandmother crafted, or maybe a drawing you made. It could be the leaves falling from trees in the Southern Hemisphere — the wind arranging them just so on your lawn. (For more information go here!)PhotoFridayYou don’t need a giagantic canvas to paint an INTRICATE scene, but a nice frame helps to set the scene.

Saint Louis Museum Of Fine Art


About Robert Edler

... a somewhat unknown and/or imaginary actor, writer, director, producer, photographer, friend, brother, uncle and all round good fellow that you really should get to know because he lives with that most glamorous fourpaw Mademoiselle Renee. (Mlle. Renee for short)

  1. I just stumbled upon your blog. I grew up near StL but have since moved to Austin. Your photos of St. Louis make me nostalgic! I remember this painting in the Art Museum. So unbelievable to me that that beautiful building was meant to be only for the World’s Fair. I’m going to follow your blog just to get a glimpse of St. Louis from time to time! =-)

    • Actually, the museum building was the only building that was designed and built to survive the 1904 worlds fair. All the rest were plaster over wood structures. There also were some other buildings built by states and foreign governments that were sold and moved to other locations in the area and used as private homes. Do drop by in the future as I often do “Tourist Treks” of spots around town. Also a historic red and yellow “Trolley Car” that will run on tracks from Forest Park to “The Lion’s Gate” in the Delmar Loop in University City is currently under construction and will be in operation this August.
