"Summer" by Alexandre Calame
On top of a million other important things that I saw and experience this past week, seeing this 1859 painting at the Hermitage was pretty life altering. This picture doesn’t do it justice, seeing it in all it’s 6 foot tall glory was indescribable.
I’m always surprised by the impact a pice of art can have, so abruptly. I intend to a have a print of this hanging in my home one day.
I see hope and beauty and faith in the fact that the seasons will change. Summer is always on the way.
