Interesting tidbit, the National Gallery of Art was founded in 1937 by Paul’s father, Andrew Mellon.

Loving Vincent – Amazing artwork undertaking and creative vision!

Loving Vincent

Loving Vincent

Amazing artwork undertaking and creative vision! Painting Animation Work Stations (PAWS) are the work stations, specially invented and patented by BreakThru Productions, to create an extraordinary work space that allows thirty painters to complete the 80-minute Loving Vincent movie in two years. The painters will hand paint 56,800 frames, inspired by the style and the hand of van Gogh. Loving Vincent will be the world’s first feature length painted animation, with every shot painted with oil paints on canvas, just as Vincent himself painted.

2014 Pinterest Albums

2014 is the year of the Pin! I’m definitely hooked and so are millions of others sharing interests, research, hobbies, events, business offerings and connecting in new ways to showcase and promote similar discoveries through pinning boards. The world wide web makes it easy to share photography, videos, articles and creative graphics with a press, tap or click of the mouse.

In my free time, I enjoy compiling research online, planning trips and adventures both domestic and international, browsing and locating art collections around the world then incorporating these discoveries to my future vacation plans.

I’ve visited some amazing museums around the world in 2013 including the Botero Museum, Bogotá Colombia, Pushkin Museum Официальный сайт, Moscow, Russia, and the Hermitage Museum Эрмита́ж, Saint Petersburg, Russia. Some destinations are better than others, but having options always makes me a happier traveler. I’ve uploaded a sampling of my favorite selections on Pinterest to share and appreciate. The addition of Foursquare pin mapping makes location searches a snap!

Growing and learning about art collections, visiting public and private museums showcasing Impressionism & Post Impressionism treasures created in the 19th- 20th centuries is one of my passions. I’ll be adding news, artwork and destinations to this blog category. Join me and pin along this amazing journey and discovery.
