This week’s Three Things will be quick, the better to get back to enjoying your day off. (And by you, I mean me. And you, too, of course.)

Memorial Day:  remembering those who died in service, and the unofficial start to the summer season. Summer vacation, summer construction jobs, summer storms, summer picnics and potlucks. Here are three things to look forward to in the coming season.


Alex Colville, Family and Rainstorm, 1955. Glazed tempera on masonite. National Gallery of Canada.


Sarah McKenzie, Support, 2007. Oil on wood.


Fernando Botero, Picnic, 1989. Oil on canvas. Private collection.
