Virtual Art...Museum

I am not in a very good mood today...if I lived in a city (which I don't) I would go to an art museum and wander around getting lost in the history and art, instead I'm going to share with you my favorite paintings...and if I can remember the museums in which they are found. Oh and if you want to make your own paintings, waste time or are feeling a little angry go to Jackson Pollock and make your own Pollocks (palette and paint provided, you'll have to get your own, that may have been a joke that was in very poor taste, but I'm leaving it in, that's just how I feel today!).

  1. I love posts like this - they make you think about books and creativity in a slightly different way. Thanks, Stephanie! (Coincidentally, I've also done an art post today.)
