MUSEUM VISIT: MFAH


1. Damien Hirst, End Game2. Only in Texas, I suppose.  3. Beautiful brushwork.  4. Needlework!  Sampler stitched by Mary Greenfield Smith, a student at the Olbate Sisters of Providence School for Colored Girls, 1843.  
5. Charles W. Hawthorne, American Motherhood.  She looks so vacant.  Amazing and probably quite appropriate, especially for 1922.  6. Love me some decorative arts.  7. Navajo blanket detail.  8. Why is it that studies are often far more interesting than finished works?  9. Finally, it wouldn't be a collection of my favorites without at least one powdered pouf.  Joshua Reynolds, Portrait of Mrs. Jelf Powis and Her Daughter, 1777.
