It's a grey, rainy Tuesday, but a perfect day for our #GalleryQuest featuring Elizabeth's Metcalfe's charming watercolor of little girls and their bicycles titled "Red Coats Across the Street." These ladies were not deterred in their play by a little liquid sunshine!
Collect your rain gear and come locate this small gem from our collection that is rarely on view because of the delicacy of its watercolor media! (Sadly, the reds fade first!)
