One of the greatest pleasures of having a home in the Hudson Valley where we do in Columbia County, is the close proximity to many culturally rich areas. Within an hour in any direction we are treated to so much history and beauty all along the way. Williamstown, Massachusetts is one such place. It is home to Williams College, along with the world class art collection of The Clark. It is a fairly small little town that packs a very large punch visually in every direction you turn. From the gorgeous old buildings that make up the campus situated right in the middle of town, to the picturesque tree covered hills that surround it all. Yesterday they were snow covered, which made our outing even prettier. Below some favorites I snapped as I strolled around the museum. TPS in the car with Bailey. We took turns staying with her while the other soaked up the art. From Renoir to Degas to Homer to Toulouse-Lautrec, it was a dizzying amount of beauty that absolutely energizes the creative soul.
