Today I visited the "Turner, Monet and Twombly: Later Paintings" exhibition at Tate Liverpool. I've been wanting to go since it opened, so I took the opportunity to join a friend and her water-colour class on a day out!
It's a really beautiful exhibition, the inclusion of five of the Water-Lily paintings was a particular highlight, they really are quite stunning.The Water-Lily Pond, 1917-1919 by Claude Monet (from Tate Website)
I also popped to the third floor for a look at the "Innocence and Experience" exhibition, which has been curated by Marianne Faithfull - these are some of my highlights...

Two Plants, 1977-80 by Lucian Freud (borrowed from Tate Website)
So after such a busy day I am taking it easy with a cup of tea, and having a look at the postcards that I picked up - but before I go I've had some comments relating to my Sunday Snippets post this week, so I thought I'd elaborate a bit...
The photographs are from a shop that I visited last Thursday called "Junk and Disorderly" which is in a lovely town called Shrewsbury. The building (and the town itself) is very old, and the shop has rickety old floorboards, some of the original wallpaper, and lots of funny little nooks. It's a strange little place, and I just couldn't leave without taking a couple of photographs!
