The Hunter Museum



Turned into a room in the colonial
house museum and walked around
to find this painting that I love and
had on my headline but was too big.
There was "Girl on a Swing" by Winslow
Homer, a pencil drawing above it and
the watercolor below ~~ not very big.
Not very big but OH SO beautiful.
He captures extraordinary moments
of beauty. Just a little girl enjoying the
sunshine on a summer day. I love her
legs crossed and her shoes and that hat!

Bonnie,
Chattanooga is wonderful! With Thomas at Covenant, I've made several visits there this last year. Last time I was there, the boys and I went to the Hunter and had a delightful time.

Looking forward to seeing you at the conference!

Winslow Homer is one of my favorites, and the Little Girl swinging is just wonderful. It oozes with summertime.
