Roxy Paine “Graft” – National Gallery of Art Sculpture Garden
Sol LeWitt “Four-Sided Pyramid” – National Gallery of Art Sculpture Garden
Blue skies over Washington, DC as Kris and I went to the Smithsonian’s Folklife Festival (see photoset) last Friday. En route to the National Mall, we walked through the National Gallery of Art’s Sculpture Garden. I hadn’t been in awhile, so the Paine piece above – installed in late 2009 – was a new sight for me. It is a scene stealer: we had to wait in line to photograph it. The sun was capture the glint on the steel just right at that time of day!
The last week of June was our annual trip to the beach. We read lots of books, rode our bikes for several miles, and played miniature golf (twice in a week – which is more in one week than I have played in two decades…) We had a nice time with the family and enjoyed the lazy days and sunny weather.
After the time away, today is the day back to our routine. Kris went back to work, and I went back to tracking the job boards. I remain optimistic that the right opportunity is out there; this experience is constantly teaching me patience. In the meantime, I am using my time to be and explore. The creativity is flowing and good things are on the horizon.
