As  I mentioned earlier this week we just spent two
weeks in Ontario and Washington DC. So we
spent a lot of time in museums and galleries.
One place I wanted to visit was the National
Museum of American Art as I especially wanted
to see works by Thomas Hart Benton and
the Hudson River School however we were
not expecting the beautiful exhibit of folk art.
My wife did find the comment in the visitor
book that " Some of this stuff looks like any one
could have made it " amusing. I though a lot of it
was beyond my skill, patience and imagination.
Rather than ending with a quote from a poem
I thought I would end with a quote posted in the
museum.
