    Default I love collecting all sorts of beautiful art images on my 'puter...

    In order:
    Jean Leon Gerome - Whoever You Are, Here Is Your Master (Love, the Conqueror)
    Knut Ekvall - The Fisherman and the Siren
    David Roberts - A View in Cairo
    Franz von Stuck - Cupid at the Masquerade Ball

    I have lots of others, but I can't spam the thread with images.

    I get to teach Art Docent at the elementary school once a month for 5 months every year. We just did Monet, we had a little French picnic (bread, cheese and grapes) while talking about him.

    We mostly do impressionists (not sure why) but Ive really been enjoying it (for the last 6 years I've been doing it)

    I love doing van gogh, I have the kindergarteners write a poem about starry night. They each give a line, it's so cute. Van Gogh is so fascinating.

    I love all the knowledge I've picked up about the painters we teach. I've considered starting a little "learn about artists" thing for kids so I can learn about more artists.

    Cafe Terrace: (from wiki) Van Gogh writing to Theo, his brother
    "Normally, one draws and paints the painting during the daytime after the sketch. But I like to paint the thing immediately. It is true that in the darkness I can take a blue for a green, a blue lilac for a pink lilac, since it is hard to distinguish the quality of the tone. But it is the only way to get away from our conventional night with poor pale whitish light, while even a simple candle already provides us with the richest of yellows and oranges."
