How do you like this? Irises

There will be a special Van Gogh exhibit at the Met May 12 - Aug 16.

Vincent van Gogh, Irises

Also...Durand-Ruel will be exhibited in Philly June 24 - Sept 13.

I think I could copy the Paul Durand-Ruel because I do people better than I do horses! I'm really considering flipping my canvas and doing this one!

Christina's World

Andrew Wyeth. Christina's World. 1948

"The woman crawling through the tawny grass was the artist's neighbor in Maine, who, crippled by polio, "was limited physically but by no means spiritually." Wyeth further explained, "The challenge to me was to do justice to her extraordinary conquest of a life which most people would consider hopeless." He recorded the arid landscape, rural house, and shacks with great detail, painting minute blades of grass, individual strands of hair, and nuances of light and shadow. In this style of painting, known as magic realism, everyday scenes are imbued with poetic mystery."

And this was my next choice. My MIL's name is Christina and she's had this hanging in her home for more than 60 years. It makes me think of her {#emotions_dlg.wub}

I've always loved the simplicity and emotion behind this Picasso piece...
