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!
