What I did on my holiday break…day 2

After the Natural History Museum, which we always want to go to whenever we visit a different big city and which almost inevitably disappoint us with either wrong taxonomies/info/spelling or all three, we went to the National Gallery of Art where I spent probably far too much time trying to dissect (in a good way) the magnificent pastels in the special exhibit.

Janet Fish is one of my favorite artists!
Guess what? Chicken butt!

I took 237 photos at the Gallery…about 4/5 of which are for research!
