My daughter and I excitedly took off to the High Museum to view the new exhibit of Dutch paintings from the Mauritshuis in the Netherlands. The signature painting for the exhibit is the Girl with the Pearl Earring and I was as eager to see it in person. As we entered the lobby at the High I immediately realized I had miscalculated the opening date because the museum was dead. There was no queue at the ticket desk and the only people in the lobby were the museum personnel. Unfortunately, the museum was in the midst of preparing for two exhibitions but luckily we had brought our cameras. The space and light in the museum is exquisite so we took the opportunity to create our own art.
