On this past Sunday, February 12, 2017, my husband took me and our girls to the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts to see the Jasper Johns and Edvard Munch: Love, Loss, and the Cycle of Life. I have been a huge fan of Edvard Munch since I was a teenager. So when I heard the VMFA was going to have an exhibit of his work I knew I had to go. Fortunately, this was a photo friendly exhibit so I was able to capture my aspiring artists in action. My daughters brought along notebooks so they could sketch some of the pieces they liked best. It was a perfect day! The girls asked lots of questions and took their time looking at the art work. When we were done with the exhibit we wondered around the museum to see what else they had to offer for our day of art!

My Wish for 2017 to spend more time with the family.
A few weeks ago my husband and I had the privilege of being childless on a Saturday. Their grandparents had them overnight. What a lovely twenty-four hours. We had been invited down to friends for a cookout and had a few hours beforehand so we went to the Virginia Museum of Fine Art. This is one of my favorite places. They have a wonderful permanent collection and they get some great exhibits. Here are a few photographs from our day out.
