I'm still processing the visit that David and I took to the Huntington last week. It was our first time there (thanks to the generosity of a friend who gifted us with passes that we have been saving for a special treat.) We were unable to go when Van Gogh & Friends opened as David was in the hospital at that time. I am grateful that we were able to go before the exhibit closes on January 2nd.
I could have sat in that small room surrounded by paintings that I loved all day. My favorites were the three Van Gogh paintings, Salome, the peonies, Touc and Study For La Place Vintimille. The textures. The colors. The brushstrokes. The passion. The way that they made me feel and how eager I was to run home to pick up my own brushes.
David eventually pried me away from my favorite redheaded painter and we walked around the museum. Turners! Book Arts! It was a lot to take in in just one visit so we are planning a return trip when the gardens are in bloom. I am hoping to get to the Norton Simon to see Van Gogh's Bedroom. I have a funny feeling that David is going to have a very hard time prying me away from that painting.
