Over the weekend, I took a bus trip to Pittsburgh! We visited the Carnegie museums of art and natural history. I was able to draw from fossils and taxidermy animals:
The taxidermy was a bit creepy, but that's probably the closest I'll ever get to a giraffe or rhino in my life! On the art side, I was able to see master works up close and person. Our textbooks really don't do them justice. My favorite pieces were Vincent van Gogh's Wheatfields after the Rain, Monet's Water Lillies, and Paul Signac's Place des Lices St. Tropez. Signac's pointillism piece really worked it's magic in person. Seeing the physical brush strokes on each piece was breathtaking.
