Fabulous exhibit visit today to the Mint Museum and this painting by William Bouguereau blew us away! Up close you could see her veins in her hands and even feel her skin . It was that realistic and yes, it was painted! Many of my students journaled on this which I get to read next week. Art fills some crevices of my mind, heart and soul of beauty that can get there no other way. I sighed as I left.
I had an odd fixation on artist's signatures. More on that in the next blog!
