The Hopper Exhibit

We went into DC Saturday evening to see the Hopper Exhibit at the National Gallery of Art, but they closed just as we got there. So we went back the next day earlier so I could see the exhibit and also catch the Redskins game that started at 1pm.

The exhibit was great, I just wanted to see two of his works, "Night Hawks" and "Lighthouse Hill". The colors were unbelievable when you see these in person. No pictures or reasonable facsimile can do it justice. Must be that great lighting that they use in jewelry stores to make diamonds look extra bright and brilliant.

Great exhibit, go see it if you get a chance.

I missed the first half of the game and they ended up losing anyway, to the Eagles, no less. What a disaster -the exhibit was definitely the highlight of the day.
