Princely perfect at the museum

We attended the Oklahoma City Museum of Art's open house today, celebrating its 10th anniversary downtown. It was packed with kids of all ages, including me. And downtown was hopping with St. Pat's crowds.

We went first to see the exhibit "Princely Treasures," European masterpieces  1600-1800 from the Victoria and Albert Museum.

So much to see, yet couldn't take photos since the museum doesn't own the exhibit. More later. The word I would use is "Ornate." But that didn't make me not take photos, including this masterpiece by Susan with Marie Antoinette. Made me want to shout, "Let them eat cake." I think I'd make a great French king, don't you?
