I loved the portrait gallery (the only museum we ended up stepping foot in while in DC this past trip). I love the tradition of sitting for a portrait, it's so old fashioned and bizarre at the same time. There were so many incredible people highlighted there and I really loved how the informational plaques were about the people IN the portraits, not the artists themselves. So many interesting people out there.
What a stud.
I would love this set of images on the walls of my house some day.
I loved the sketchiness of this piece - it adds so much focus to the subject in my mind.
I adore the precision in the top of this piece mixed with the casual undone bottom.
