You expect me to remember ALL of the candy? Oy!

I'm just amazed that the M&Ms aren't at 100%! Sheesh!

Hah! Finally a 'painting' I understand! I've felt that way before, actually :)

I lived across the street from the Boston Museum of Fine Art for 9 months while in college. I never went inside until the day my mother came to visit. They were doing a Renoir exhibit (he's the guy who painted a bunch of daisies), and my mom is a big fan, so we went.

I could see the joy in my mother's eyes when she looked at the paintings so I remained silent, but all I got out of it was 'this guy uses way too much paint'. It must have been a half inch thick.

So I must re-iterate: Benning, do an art apreciation post! I mean 'explain why a certain painting is brilliant', because I don't get it. I've always thought that the best painting is one that looks closest to an actual photograph (this opinion sends my mother off in a huff). Apparently this is not the case.

Illuminate the masses Benning! I'm not in any way opposed to fine art, I just don't see the beauty most of the time. And I want to. Thanks in advance!

Also, Kit Kat, all the way (M&M's with peanuts are a close second though)

My guide to appreciating art:

I may not "know" art, but I know what I like!

Brooke, that's exactly how you need to appreciate art! It's the "Hmmm, I like this," moment.

Does it make you look again? Are you drawn to it? That's why I love the Parrish painting, "Moonlight." I always come back to it to look. And be mesmerized. :D
