bawled out at the Met…

I fell in love at first sight at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York. Nope…not a man. Well…okay….a man. A man’s painting, rather.  I’ve never been a Van Gogh fan, but all that changed the day I rounded a corner and came face-to-face with his painting, Roses!!!

I stood there gazing at this painting for quite some time, probably to the ire of the people behind me. I paint with acrylics, and I’m so interested in how other artists, famous or not, apply their medium and use paint strokes, so without knowing it, I got closer and closer to the painting.

I was fascinated with the lush, luminescent colors, the seemingly sloppy, but 0h-so-thought-out brush strokes. So I got even closer…

BUSTED…I got yelled at for being far too close to Vincent’s painting!!!!!!! I slinked away in shame, only to be followed by the same guard that bawled me out. Youch!

  1. Oh I know the feeling! I hate being yelled at, especially for taking photos but it happens a lot! Still, it’s usually worth it and in this case, definitely! It’s amazing to see the actual brushstrokes and they are as beautiful and fascinating as the painting itself. Thanks for risking life and limb. Well, dignity anyway!! xoc
