An Albert Bierstadt Kind of Day

What the hell does that mean? I have no idea, but I visited the Smithsonian's American Art Museum today during my lunch break and I gravitated toward its collection of Albert Bierstadt paintings.

All I have to do is sit in front of a painting to be inspired or awed. Bierstadt's paintings will do that. Whether it be a small image or a massive one, you feel the splendor and drama of the American landscape he attempted to capture in his work.

Sometimes, a lunch hour can be more than just having a sandwich ...
