Vermeer in Vancouver, but not for long!

There's still time to catch the show of Dutch paintings featuring Vermeer at the Vancouver Art Gallery. Well worth a road trip, ferry ride, or train trek.

May 10 - September 13

The Essential Vermeer is an excellent, comprehensive guide to the everything about the painter, with a complete catalog of his work you can browse through and read about. This painting, called The Love Letter, is featured in the Vancouver show.

Here's a coincidence: just this morning I posted about my own painting called Love Letter (To Mondrian) on my website journal. I had no idea Vermeer's image would pop up when I googled the show in British Columbia...

Perhaps love is in the air?
