I just returned from the International Colored Pencil Show in Seattle. Wow, what fun! I attended two great workshops, ate yummy food, stayed in a very posh hotel, and visited with old friends, can't get much better than that. OH, but it did, before we left the city original built on seven hills, we went to the Seattle Art Museum and viewed an exhibit on Impressionism Painters. What a thrill to stand before such masterful works. I almost came to tears more than once just by being in the presence of these paintings.
So, let me know if you have had the same kind of reaction when viewing masterpieces at an art museum, or perhaps a different reaction.
