'This world is but a canvas to our imagination' - Henry David Thoreau
|Watercolors By Andrea Burke, WVWS||
I had an incredible day yesterday with favorite friend, artist, teacher - and her daughter! We spent the day in Washington, DC. First stop was the Hirschhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden with interesting exhibits on light, color and space! Then spent the rest of the day touring both wings and all floors of the National Gallery. Featured exhibit was Jakuchu Japanese Bird and Flower Paintings - the detail was incredible! Also enjoyed the "classics" in all their glory - especially the impressionists. Across the board main attraction for me was the use of light in paintings. When correctly done, I don't think anything surpasses it! One day was not long enough, but it was a fabulous day and I look forward to our next adventure.
