And one more thing...

I did forget to mention that while we were at the Kemper Art Museum in Kansas City, we were very excited to see an exhibit titled "Three Generations".... an exhibit of the three Wyeths...N.C., Andrew, and James.  These are a few of  my most favorite artists.  Most of the painting there were by Andrew...his work is so realistic.  Because it was a traveling exhibit, I wasn't able to take any pictures of it. 

There had been a three generation collection in Dallas many years ago, but not any of the same pictures.  The Dallas one focused on N.C. Wyeth's illustrations for books....Treasure Island, Kidnapped, etc.  The originals were enormous...larger than life. Our first big trip after retirement was East and the Wyeth home/studio at Chadd's Ford, PA was one of our stops.  Such a thrill to actually stand where the masters stood and lived!

Tomorrow a Guild Board meeting then lunch with an old friend.
