Field Trip Day!

Woo hoo!  Field trip day!  I always loved field trips as a kid.  I was never homeschooled, so the getting out of doing school work for the day was just as exciting as the destination!  My son, though excited to get out of doing his normal work, was much more excited to go to 2 art museums today!  It was made even more special that one of the museums, even though not listed as being on display, had 2 Van Gogh paintings.  We were both so excited, my son moreso, as Van Gogh is his absolute favorite artist.



Paintings by Van Gogh— Enclosed Field with Plowman & Street in Saintes-Maries-de-la-Mer.  The top one is my favorite!!!

 In addition to those paintings, we saw Andy Warhol prints, sculptures from every possible era, big bold artwork by Frank Stella(the modern art museum was having a retrospective of his work) and paintings by Manet, Monet, Matisse, Cezanne, Rembrandt, Michelangelo and so so so many more!   I just love that we have world class museums so close!

Well, that is all for me today!  Just had to share our awesome day!
