Sunday at the Museum

Our friends Jen and Simone stopped at our place over the weekend on their way to Vermont, and on Sunday we all went to catch the last day of the Amy Sillman exhibit at the ICA.

Jen and Simone, both artists, were good enough to do some coloring projects with Rainer.

I think this last one is my favorite.  If Simone ever publishes a coloring book, I’ll let you know.
