I walk incredibly slowly, will stop and ponder. I like to see the art work from afar then move in closely to see if there are multiple meanings in the work. I may focus on a particular detail or place myself in the artists shoes so i can try and witness what he/she saw. Someone may see a stroke of the brush but i'm looking for the meaning/emotion attached to the brush stroke. I thoroughly enjoyed being in the National Gallery in Scotland and i'd go back again.
I remember when my ex took me to see the 'Voice of Fire' in Ottawa. For $1.8 million (back in 1989) i was expecting something spectacular and it was incredibly disappointing. I was looking at the canvas from the side and security politely yet firmly told me to step away. Oppss.
