I had a grand scheme to post some new finished work this week. But a busy week running around San Francisco was followed by my one-year-old niece sniffling in my general direction and now I’m down for the count.
I did get the opportunity to visit some excellent museums though. The De Young Museum was first with some really nice American works, followed by the Legion of Honor which had an excellent “British works on paper” exhibit up. The most fascinating thing about that collection, beyond getting to see the kind of works that aren’t put on display too often due to fragility, was the number of studies shown alongside the finished works. We also visited some aquariums, a science museum and several other attractions but those two museums were the highlight of the trip for me.
