A few images of a recent visit to Philadelphia. I hadn't spent any length of time in the city before and while it wasn't a leisure trip, I did have a little while to myself to squeeze in some sketching. 

Cmdre. Barry statue

N. C. Wyeth's oils for Treasure Island, Brandywine Museum, Chadds Ford. Seeing his home, studio, props, many other originals, and even a full mural was very special. Unfortunately, although rightly so, no photographs were allowed of A. Wyeth's works in watercolor and tempera, nor of many other works by various Brandywine artists also on exhibit. 

Billy Booonnnes!

Birdwatcher statue, Brandywine Museum

Eakins Oval, from some very famous steps!

(Stole this pic from the Project Muse Twitter page) Early morning 5k to kick off AAUP 2016!

Another day

Never really considered what the end of the 20s might feel like, but so far seems pretty calming. Spent the first day of 29 out in the garden wondering at how the time has flown since know, back when we looked like this (!):

Laaawd have mercy!

We chased the light for hours, up, down, around, and again and shadow! there you were.
