art walk

 Byron took me for my first visit to the art museum. These were a few of my favorite things. 
I love all of the portraits of dukes and duchesses. I always wonder what they were thinking as they sat for their painting. Especially when they are painted with 4 of their children. I like to imagine how all of their decorum probably went out the window when trying to coordinate 4 velvet clad children to sit still for hours. 
This silver belle is an ornate spice container.
The Mesoamericans were clearly as obsessed with their chihuahuas as I am with mine. There was a bowl in this same display that was labeled as Deer? It was clearly a chihuahua. 
This restroom marquis made me laugh. She's so fashionable. 
The art museum has a walking path with art displayed outside. We will have to go back to do the whole walk as it was raining when we left the buildings.
Overall it was a fantastic (and free!) way to spend the afternoon.


  1. I'm so excited you visited NCMA! It's one of my favorite places. They have an amazing brunch on the's a really pleasant way to spend an afternoon. Maybe we should all go some time? Miss you guys :)

    1. I would love to go back. I only got to walk through one of the buildings on this visit. We must plan a group art date!
