Welcome reader to my blog - a mixture of this and that. Now that we are living in a retirement community in downtown Columbia, MD my personal gardening activities are somewhat curtailed. I still enjoy visiting gardens, reading, watching wildlife on my walks, traveling, and occasional food commentary. Please leave a comment if you feel inspired to do so. I read every one of them.

Art Treasures

I visited the National Gallery of Art East Wing last Friday, a Vantage House trip.  Look back one day to see the architecture of this building.  Today I will feature some of the art work.

This is from the early 20th Century by George Bellows.





Other scenes of American life in the early century.







Striking paintings of life more than 100 years ago.

Great oil paintings. A talented artist. I went back to check on the building and found the architecture very modern.
