I’ll be on the road, so posts might be a bit spotty for two weeks.



  1. Back to Africa?

    Have a great time, where ever you wander. 🙂

    If you go to the Corcoran Gallery, look for a small sculpture of a woman head with a veil (or is it a piece of fine cloth over her head). I find it an outstanding piece, though not prominently exhibited (you could ask where it is). When I was there a long time ago it was under a staircase.

    If Scott David Young is talking about “The Veiled Nun” by Croff, then I’ll add my voice to his recommendation. I had forgotten where I had seen it so I am thankful for his info that it is at the Corcoran. It is a truly amazing work in marble where the veil seems translucent and you feel like you can see the face underneath.

    In case anyone is wondering, here are two nice photos of that sculpture.

    I’d also recommend Giacometti’s dog in the Hirshhorn if you’ve time to spare. The dog is the most expressive sculpture I’ve seen that looks like you can’t take a handful of it away and still recognize the subject.

    Galleries are nice, but I’d recommend not remaining on the road as it can be dangerous. Try to find a nice hotel!

    Thanks, we did! Not quite the vacation we planned, but fun none-the-less.
