The Lady with the Red hat Johannes Vermeer
National gallery Washington DC
Welcome and thank you for visiting ! I must start with my amazing trip recently to Washington D.C. USA. I attended The Portrait Society of America conference where I had the pleasure to become extremely inspired and educated by some of the foremost leading contemporary artists in the portrait arena. I also had the distinct pleasure of visiting The National Gallery and The National Portrait Gallery, both part of the comprehensive Smithsonian Institute. A smaller gallery, The Phillips Collection also did not escape my attendance.
