SF art: paintings

This post takes care of the art aspect of our trip to San Francisco - my favorite paintings at the two museums we visited. There was one more that actually made me break down and cry a little as I stood and looked at it, but the photo I took of it doesn't reproduce the emotion the original evoked in me. Not even kind of, so I decided to leave that one for what it is; an experience. All that is left to share now are the sightseeing snaps!

so, San Francisco was pleasing

Once upon a scorching August my husband was sent to a nerd convention in San Fran, and I got to get on a plane all by myself and join him for the last few days of the adventure. Highlights? Why yes:
- I got to get on a plane all by myself.
- We found Indonesian food and ate it until our bellies could take no more.
- The hotel staff assumed I was a lady of the night.
- access to the hotel's executive breakfast suite.
- wandering around the breathtaking De Young and Legion of Honor museums.
- seeing friends we hadn't seen in a good number of years.
- finding a hidden beach near Davenport and getting salty water all over me.
- riding random buses by myself and getting lost.
So this might be a bit of an adjustment; there are no pictures of children attached to this post, and because I'm more of an art fanatic than I tend to let on on this here blog you had better brace yourself for lots of images of art I enjoyed at the aforementioned museums.
