Inspiration from The Metropolitan and Wadsworth Museums

Last week, I visited my best friend and extraordinary photographer, Meredith Hudes-Lowder of Equus ferus Wild Horse Photography, in New York. I spent a day at The Metropolitan Museum of Art, and a day at the Wadsworth Atheneum Museum.  Both museums have wonderful collections. The Wadsworth is the oldest continuously-operating public museum in the U.S. It also holds the largest collection of paintings from the Hudson River School. Every time I visit museums, I learn from the masters and am inspired to paint and grow!

We had the opportunity for some day trips and hikes. I painted and Meredith played her Harpsicle Harp.

It was  a wonderful week packed full of art, adventure and fun!
