52 Fridays: #7 – Connecticut

The fifth state in our union, Connecticut is home to many “firsts” (and probably “fifths” as well).  A few noteworthy facts:  Connecticut is home to the United States’ oldest public library, is the birthplace of Noah Webster (of dictionary fame), and home to the first polaroid, hamburger, helicopter and color television.

As you’ll see, it’s also home to intriguing artists of all stripes…  enjoy the beauty!

A disclaimer:  this is 52 Fridays… but it’s Sunday.  I know.  I actually totally forgot about 52 Fridays until my daughter asked if she could see the new post.  Whoops!  I guess it’s a week before Christmas, and my head is elsewhere.  I tried to make it up by including some extra amazing art. 🙂  Hope you will forgive me!
