It seems to be endlessly interesting for art viewers to learn the story behind a painting. And to tell you the truth I like to dig in and find out this information too when I am on the gallery hopping route.

You just have to love small digital cameras–especially for taking photos of interesting people without disturbing or interrupting the moment. Continue reading →
