Saint-Gaudens National Historic Site

A beautiful day at Saint-Gaudens National Historic Site. I have been working on eyes, noses and lips in my drawing class with Jeanne Lachance. It was interesting to see all the statues today and look at the faces. There were many artists there today demonstrating various methods of art, gilding (gold leaf), blow torch fire organ, bas relief (modeling clay), pastel, sculpting with wood, stone & clay. We had a great time watching everybody.

The busts were inside and will be on display through October 31, 2009.

Joe and I took a slower drive home through state roads and enjoyed all the autumn leaves too.
