I have found that sometimes I prefer museum-going by myself. Because I concentrate on what is interesting to me and don't "worry" about being nice to whoever took the trouble to go with me.
That was the case today when I went to the exhibit of Jamie Wyeth paintings at the Boston Museum of Fine Arts.
This was also my first use of some Faber Castel Pitt pens. I only have a set of 6 (they come in 58 (!) colors. I love their vibrancy... even if they do seem to be about $2.50 each. Some of the other colors you see are Faber Castell colored pencils and water soluble crayons.
