artwork



we met some friends up in the cities for a weekend and spent the day on saturday at the minneapolis institute of arts. i had not visited this art museum before and was very impressed with its size and content. i'll share two specific pieces with you. the first is so incredible that the painting actually looks like it's a photograph. it's called "frank" and was painted in 1969 by chuck close.

the second painting is a rembrandt painted in the 1600's. it's entitled "lucretia." the story behind the painting is tragic, but it was neat to stand in front of a painting that was almost 400 years old.
