Sunday Morning

I was doing some research on ARTstor the other day. (ARTstor is an on-line repository of thousands of images from hundreds of institutions across the world. If you are looking for inspiration and Google images ain't doing it for ya, I highly recommend them.) I managed to come across the many variations of "Sunday morning" in art throughout the years. It seems that since the beginning, mornings on Sundays have been the kind of quiet, thoughtful, restorative moments that we all look forward to at the end of the week.Here are some of those Sunday mornings:

Sunday Morning in front of the Arch Street Meeting House, Philadelphia
Attributed to, John Lewis Krimmel, 1811- ca. 1813

Thomas Hovenden
Sunday Morning, 1881

Mary Heilmann
Sunday Morning, 1986

And of course:
Edward Hopper
Early Sunday Morning,
