last days in Denmark

YEAH! reunited: Sacha arrived from New York with a new...

and what better way to recover from jet lag then to take a stroll in a cemetery
this one is popular with the locals - picnics with friends and bottles of wine are a common site

a most magical tree trunk

the Statens Museum for Kunst (State Museum of Art) was well worth a visit

this chair was in the 'children's gallery' - it was so hard to keep myself from not jumping over the rope and trying it out
tiny dresses hung on hangers
the space was flooded with sun light so saturated blue was super intense
can't believe i didn't write this artist's name down - ahh!
total jelly fish effect when looking up
being a bean bag fan, this tops the list of cool ones
(i think they should have them all over the museum, not just in the children's gallery)

looking down to the cafe which overlooks a lovely park with lots of ponds and curved pathways

so cool to watch a Rubens' painting being restored.

the Ny Carlsberg Glyptotek was another amazing museum experience - the art collection of Carl Jacobsen (1842-1914) "who created one of the largest private art collections of his time. It was named after his brewery, Ny Carlsberg, with the addition of "Glyptotek", meaning collection of sculpture.

Today, the museum houses the largest collection of ancient art in Northern Europe, primarily sculpture, from Egypt, the Near East, Greece and Italy. But during the more than one hundred years of its existence, the museum has also expanded the collection of French and Danish art from the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. The Impressionists, Paul Gauguin and Auguste Rodin are particularly well represented.

...it one of the most popular art museums in Denmark."

my favorite wall in Copenhagen (surprise, it's blue)

a PERFECT ending

and of course the goodbyes to the girls (and Erik)...

i'll miss you guys - though i'll see some of you at Pratt!
