The National Gallery

Drawing class met at the National Gallery today. The Gallery is located right in Trafalgar Square. One of the coolest parts of the Gallery is the interior which lies in the overall layout and architectural quality of the building itself.

Another thing I love about the museums here is almost all of them are free admission. My favorite painting in the Gallery is Van Gogh's Sunflowers. I would have taken my own picture of it, but it was being closely watched. Trafalgar Square!Statue in the Square. This was on the cement in front of the Gallery. Several chalk artists sit in the Square and work during the day.

It was such a nice day in London today. In other news, the London Police called me twice today regarding the theft of my purse. They didn't have any great news to tell me other than that if they find anything of mine they'll give me a call. So far everything is working out to be okay!

So helpful, the cops!

You are the master of forbidden museum photos. That one of the chalk on the sidewalk is sweet, though! Glad you're doing better.
