Our last day in Birmingham

Our last day in Birmingham - a few views from the streets.......
Flowers on every corner
And back to the Art Gallery for another look
Check out the folded patchwork on the Egyptian mummy

Edward Burne Jones decorated this piano
Detail below

A portrait from the 1600's by Pickenoy who was the leading portrait painter in Amsterdam until the rise of Rembrandt in the 1630's.
The detail in her sleeve (below), was visually stunning
Tomorrow we take the train to Cardiff, Wales

Your pictures of the trip are just beautiful. I can see your artist's eye is always busy and taking notes of textures, designs, and textile patterns.
