In a week, girls are starting school. During the last - and rainy - days of summer, we are doing our final day field trips. Today, the destination was Art Institute of Chicago. It is one of my favorite museums to go on my own. I am not yet finished with their permanent collection. It is also great to go with kids, they have the really nice Ryan Education Center.
We spent a lot of time in one of the activity rooms that was dedicated to curating and drawing still life. While Adele spent most of her time hording the still life objects, Lula and I were able to work on our projects.
Lula was inspired in the room but she did not exactly draw a still life. Hers was a Chicago skyline with a beautiful sunset and dark blue sky. Some sort of a still life, I guess:
I quickly worked on a lime bucket as Adele was waiting to add those to her collection...
