My sister might want beat me for posting these, so I'm glad I'm 2000 miles out of reach. I was blown away by these images Erin took of the MET. I love to stand next to a Van Gogh or Monet or Signac (as seen below) so I can see and experience the texture of the paint that gives it life and depth.
Art comes to life when the original is right in front of you. Most of my favorite paintings and works aren't my favorites because they look good in a book. They are my favorites because of the way I felt when I saw them in person. Do you feel the same way?
Thanks for capturing these images Erin. Please don't sue me for stealing/editing your images without permission.
Seraut's pointillist dots up close... step away and morph together to create an image. Amazing, really.
