Visiting Washington, DC
Over Memorial Day weekend I visited Baltimore for a friend's wedding and then to Washington, DC to spend a couple days with a dear friend.  I am extraordinarily fond of Baltimore, my one time home, so it was lovely to be back in the city.  I had a fantastic time exploring in DC as well.  There was a really lovely exhibit of wire sculpture portraits by Calder at the National Portrait Gallery.  We also made a visit to the Julia Child's kitchen at the American History Smithsonian.  A lovely morning was spent at Eastern Market (a farmer/flea market) and following morning exploring in Rock Creek Park.  I made this painting of the Key Bridge, which can be seen from Rock Creek Park.  I was struck by the lushness of Washington as well as the dramatic (by comparison to Chicago) topography!

What are your favorite sites to visit in Washington, DC?

  1. Jane, glad you got to make a visit down south! I was in D.C. the weekend after Memorial Day--and visited the Eastern Market for the first time, and also went to a picnic at Rock Creek Park! too bad it was different weekends, or else I might have bumped into you!
