There are few things I like more than spending a day looking at beautiful art and admiring the talent that made it possible. Today thanks to Veronica and Patricio I was able to enjoy such a day. First we went to The Museum of Women in the Arts where there is currently an exhibit of Mary in Art. It was absolutely wonderful. We took a quick look at some of their permanent works and were elated to find one Frida Kahlo self-portrait and three paintings by Remedios Varo.

We then went to the National Gallery for a lecture by Chris Siron, one of Patricio’s friends.

After a most enjoyable lunch we continued on our way through the Piero Di Cosimo exhibit – such an amazing exhibit with 44 of his paintings. Before heading back home we got to see more beautiful masterpieces, including some by very favorites –Dali, Monet and Van Gough.
