Paint Me a Picture

The Winter Palace is one of the jewels of St. Petersburg. Once the home of Catherine the Great, its elegance is stunning. It is now home to The Hermitage Museum. 189 IMG_1705

 

Most of the rooms had ceilings that were more interesting than what was being displayed. Get a load of that craftsmanship!

I’m not really an art person. I’m not one to stand for hours in art exhibits. Actually I know little to nothing about art; however, I do recognize the names of some of the most famous artists in history, and boy did I see a bunch of them yesterday.

No, I may not be an art person, but it was fascinating taking in those timeless pieces by names I’ve been hearing about for my entire life. I’ve been inspired! I may start finger-painting again.
