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.
On Friday, March 11, 2016, I had the pleasure of attending the second to last day of the Rodin exhibit in Richmond at the Virginia Museum of Fine Art. I truly, regret not bringing my camera. A lesson learned the hard way, for sure. Every other time I have gone to an exhibit at the VMFA there has been a strict no photography policy. So of course the one time I assume the rules will be the same I leave my camera at home. I did my best with what I had, my Samsung Galaxy S5. Here are a few of my favorites from that day. Note I forgot to write down all the names of the pieces. It was extremely busy and I was with family so I was unable to linger longer with the pieces.
My daughter loves art. When she is in the zone she practically dances while she creates. Here she is using chalk on a wall at her Grandparent’s house. I love her exuberance! And her constant companion, Mr. Wilson Bunny.
