Impressionist and Modern Masters



Evan, our third son, now on Spring

Break, is in the vicinity of Nashville
this week. He called yesterday with
great joy having seen a real Van Gogh
and Dali and Monet at the Frist Museum.
It's a special exhibit. He said " Mom,
it's awesome to see these painters real
paintings." All that picture study in
homeschooling created
a love for art! Again, better than a movie!
The real thing.

A taste of the exhibit:

I love the Red Kerchief the best! How nice when your child comes back with that gratitude.
