Seems to be an art day for some reason.
I watched some T.V. show about a painting they thought was a Rembrandt but turned out not to be… and now we are watching (paused at this exact moment in time) the world’s most expensive paintings. Picasso is the top 3 spots… we saw a Picasso exhibit in Lake Como Italy. Seriously you could get in the airport easier! You couldn’t take your coat in with you, no joke! You had to hand over EVERYTHING you had and they gave you a little metal keychain thing with a number on it! I don’t think security is that good anywhere!
The exhibit… well to be honest… it was so so. A lot of hoo haw and not much depth or much else for that matter.
We saw Rembrandt’s house in Amsterdam. And where he did his etchings… that was fascinating and good art too! The house was a bit spooky and the help evidently slept in the wardrobes! They were big enough I guess but a bit claustrophobic for my likings! Would go back though… would be worth a second look!
The best though by far was Van Gogh! But I was always a fan! It was one of the coolest things to see “The Bedroom at Arles” in person!!!!! I had it hanging on my wall for years. (Not the real one! ;~P)
That was the other art thing we watched today. Some Van Gogh thing…. We didn’t finish it but will later.
His work was so breathtaking I will never forget it! And can’t wait to see it again! The brush strokes were just so fantastic and full of colour and life! I was amazed! Truly!
I used to go to a lot of exhibits when I was in high school but don’t really remember too many of them or maybe they didn’t make that much off an impression! ;~P
As much as I love art, and I do love art… the expression, not the person! ;~P
As much as I love it one thing I don’t like about it is how people spend so much money on it! I think its total madness! I don’t know what the most expensive painting is yet, (still paused) but we are up in the 100,000,000’s and that’s just too much! A hospital could be built for that! And how many starving people could that feed? Or house?
It’s the sick part of art! I don’t know what’s wrong with people?
That’s it… I don’t want to get too appalled this time of the night! So I’ll stop…
I have decided to do a Project 365! Here is just a bit of info behind every pic.
I have an Etsy shop now! Check it out here!!!!
