We spent our weekend visiting Saint-Gaudens National Historic Site. Augustus Saint Gaudens was one of America's most premier sculptors in the late 1800s. If you've ever looked at a one cent piece or a 10 or 20 dollar gold piece - you've seen his stuff. His works read like a Who's Who of the Gilded Age.
And he's just right up my Humanities crazed alley. I'm a fan of his Civil War pieces.
His Abraham Lincoln stuff is amazing. I haven't seen such detail since looking at drawings by my talented cousin Graham.
I think he had Greg in mind when he designed The Puritan.
Along the way, Sweetie made friends with a local frog, we splurged on a bag of Wild Maine Blueberries covered in milk chocolate, and spent a lot of time goofing off.
