Take a moment, go to Google Art Project, and bookmark it. While you’re there, look up your favorite piece of art and zoom in.
(Go, right now. I’ll still be here when you get back.)
Okay. How much time has gone by? Hours? Days?
Yeah. I know.
IT’S LIKE SEEING THE PAINTINGS IN PERSON, AND GETTING CLOSER THAN THAT LITTLE MUSEUM LINE WILL LET YOU. And then, someday, when they add “touch” technology…
Which paintings are your favorites? I actually found Google Art Project from a link posted on pinterest of the moon from The Starry Night (the picture above.) It is everything.
–Full disclosure, I’ve been looking at paintings for a while instead of finishing this blog post. It feels a little bit like I just had an artist date.–
By the way, while we’re talking about art, have you seen the Blue/Black White/Gold dress debate? It has completely altered my perception of reality and color and now I just don’t trust my eyes.
