i know this has been talked about everywhere, but i just spent some time completely engrossed with the brushstrokes of some of the most amazing paintings ever. i'm amazed at how close and in focus some of these images are! if you haven't tooled around with it yet, check out the google art project. so smart and a great resource- i wish this had been around when i wrote that 25 page comparison paper on van gogh and gauguin's still lifes..
look at those brushstrokes! ahh!
