I posted one new picture on the dining room wall from our Artist Study of Caspar David Friedrich - Woman at the Window. I got the print from Wikipedia I like the prints on Wikipedia. You can just do a google search or do a search at Wikipedia of the Artist you are studying then you scan down and they have a link under Work that takes you to a complete list with thumbnails of all the pictures of the Artist. Then you can choose which ones you want to print and/or download. That way I can choose photos that are not scantily clothed or unclothed. I use Ambleside Online's Artist Schedule and suggested prints, if they are clothed, though I download them from Wikipedia if I don't like the suggested paintings I find replacements on Wikipedia.
We also continued on with the Grammar, Math, Bible and Copywork we usually do.
Well that was our week.
I hope yours was great,
