Yes, We Did Have Thanksgiving Dinner
On Thanksgiving Day we went to the National Gallery of Art to see some of our old favorites (me looking at Philip Guston's Rug).
As a special treat, the featured exhibition was an Arcimboldo show, Nature and Fantasy, that was fantastic.
Outside the galleries was an enormous 15-foot high statue, Winter (After Arcimboldo) that had been created by Philp Haas. Susan waited about 5 mnutes for people to stop standing in front of it so she could get this photo. The atrium area in the East Wing of the National Gallery is about 5 stories high so the sculpture looked great in it.
We didn't miss our Turkey dinner, or actually, I didn't, thanks to the Cascade cafeteria in the National Gallery. As you can see from the photo below, Susan opted for the vegetarian choices, topped off with chocolate.
