Insta Snap- Vermeer at the Getty, go!

The other night I went to the Getty Museum for the opening reception of the Vermeer show ( Johannes Vermeer Woman in Blue Reading a Letter).  A little bit of a boring title for a painting that is really stunning.  It is only there for 6 weeks so schedule it in.  It is really worth it.  The light, color, composition, surface treatment and overall mood all make for a quite contemplative experience.  I mostly was in awe of the color palette - simply pared down to sophisticated choices.  Quite brilliant.  I came home and noted the colors in my journal before they faded in my mind.  

There is nothing like seeing the real thing in person.  I  ♥ art
