Self Portrait

The National Portrait Gallery in WDC has lots of activities for children.  On one of our visits, everyone was invited to sit at tables piled high with all kinds of materials to make hats.  Upstairs, near portraits of US Presidents a mirror was hung and next to it a sign saying, "Self Portrait" dated xxxx.  It was fun to watch kids come and admire their works of art like this young lady.  She was keeping impressive company with portraits of President Reagan at her back and President Carter on her side.  I don't think she noticed.
