Dali Friday

If you’ve paid any attention to me at all you know I am a big fan of Salvador Dali’s work. A few years back we visited his museum in St. Petersburg and it was amazing. I was so fascinated with everything, from the architectural design of the building and grounds to the wristband willow tree and his unique artwork.

as soon as i saw this sign, i knew we were in for a treat

It is tradition to leave your entry wristband on the tree

Inside the gift-shop you’ll find many fun and uniquely Dali gifts

“…If you are a disciple of one of those calorie-counters who turn the joys of eating into a form of punishment, close this book at once; it is too lively, too aggressive, and far too impertinent for you.” Dali Surrealist Cookbook-Les Diners Gala

I hope I can get one of these cookbooks! I’d read about the original a few years ago.

This brings me to the end of my Salvador Dali Friday tribute and reminiscences, rumination, and fandom.

I’ll leave you with another update on my ‘Madame Coy/Koi’ piece, as you can see, I am still laying in the foundations of the work.

Peace,
