Here is another (older) article from Christian Science

Along the same theme, here is a gallery that

Great find with today's article, thank you for sharing! It's really a beautiful museum, I feel lucky to live close enough to make it a day-trip. Another great gallery to view (or buy!) original artwork is Child at Heart up in Newburyport, MA.

We are new to CT, new to parenthood... new to a lot of things come to think of it... but my husband and I can't wait for the weather to warm up so we can take our little girl up there. She's only 7 months old, but it's never too early to start! She already LOVES to look at our print of a Seuss painting! (He's another great one to look at, especially the "Secret Art of Dr. Seuss."

Thanks for the article!

Kathy,

I keep coming back to look at your site and the other sites that you have listed as well. It has been such a help to have so many resources so easily accessible here! I have recently started testing the waters with making art a career for myself. And although my timing could be a little better with my 7 month old, there is no time like the present! I'd love to hear some advice if you have any to offer up to this amateur!
Thanks for your time and for all of the inspirations!
