The Dreamer by Renoir
I told you a while back that I love art, paintings in particular. I am so blessed to live no more than four hours from three phenomenal art museums. This summer when we went to Wicked, we also spent a day at SLAM. Heaven on Earth for me. Imagine my delight when I discovered that they now allow non-flash photography! When I was in the Impressionist gallery, I was captured by a girl I had never seen. I could tell by looking that she was painted by Renoir, who is a big favorite of mine.
It had happened again. I felt a real recognition as I gazed at this dreamer. Something about her called to me. Something about her was me.
Does that ever happen to you?
