Today will be a short and sweet day in the Beautiful Hello Blog. Besides, I went totally post-crazy on you yesterday…
My husband and I completely enjoyed our day without the little girls. We walked all over DC, ate lunch at a fun little gourmet sandwich place, stopped in Starbucks (twice), shopped at a couple glam stores, and of course, enjoyed the National Gallery of Art. Here is one of my very favorite paintings: Reconciliation Elegy, by Robert Motherwell (painted in 1978). This painting is monstrous. I really don’t know where he found space to paint this as it is bigger than most studios I’ve been in! I love the play on light and dark, as well as active space vs. still space.
Reconciliation Elegy is eye-opening, breath-taking, and awe-inspiring.
Today, I’m off to meet my senator and get a tour of the capital building! Such an honor! I’ll post photos if I’m allowed to take them!
