went to the art museum

and this was one of my faves. 

It's called 'Oh that I had wings like a dove! For then would I fly away, and be at rest.' by Frederick Leighton
"From the many events in the turbulent life of the biblical King David, Leighton chose to depict his moment of gravest doubt. Having just learned of the death of his rebellious son Absalom at the hands of his own army, David has withdrawn to a chamber above the city gate. Casting aside his crown, which lies on the floor, the ruler muses on the conflicting demands of family and nation."
