I wish I'd gotten out of the house sooner so I could have visited more workshops, but I'm happy I made it to one. I can't wait til next year--maybe Sprout will be old enough to be interested in drawing images by then. At the moment he likes to use crayons & markers, but he just scribbles.
After I drew my portrait, I looked around the Matisse show at the gallery. Calling it a Matisse show isn't really the whole story, however. The works on display are from the collection of the Cone sisters, two avid modern art collectors from Baltimore. As you walk through the exhibit, you're introduced to Etta & Claribel Cone, their travels & the incredible amount of art they collected. I really enjoyed watching a short BBC documentary showing in the gallery on the Cone sisters, hosted by Michael Palin.
