Jan 7-12 2018 Sketchbook by Meera Rao
The cold, the snow, the ice and more bone chilling cold! There was a huge cascading ice that formed from a water leak in one of the faucets from the school across our house. For a week I watched it form and grow so I had to put it on my sketchbook. I escaped one day to the National Gallery of Art and next day to the National Postal Museum - best way to get color on gray days ! The mango from the grocery store supplied the taste of summer and lifted the spirits. The squirrels were busy in the backyard and I caught one enjoying the snow to quench the thirst, I suppose.
I finally discovered what that Victorian looking 'post' by the Lincoln Park was - the Police and Fire call Boxes from long ago. Apparently this particular call box had missed its chance to become a "Art on Call" box in 2000. Do check out the article and the videos on these 'call boxes'. There is history in every corner in DC!
