Monet to Picasso...

So the UMFA (Utah Museum of Fine Art at the U of U)  is hosting some very big artists works now through September, and I was fortunate enough to go see it today.  It was amazing and I recommend everyone goes before it leaves our state-chance of a lifetime for most of us!  I've always enjoyed art-historic and contemporary but seeing a Monet or Van Gogh in person is an entirely new experience.  You see Van Gogh's on postcards calendars and prints in peoples homes but unless you go to see it in real life you will never appreciate those brushstrokes and techniques like you should-absolutely amazing!

Just wanted to say CONGRATS on the photography degree...I'd love to "pick your brain" sometime since it's something I dabble in.
