“If you ask me what I came to do in this world, I, an artist, will answer you: I am here to live out loud.” - Emile Zola
^^I sat in front of this painting in Joslyn's permanent collection while reading "For Whom The Bell Tolls". One of my favorite things to do in the museum is bring a book and plop down in front of a painting I think captures a book's "essence"^^
We are so incredibly lucky to have this museum in our town, especially considering admission is now free! To be surrounded by such beautiful things is a privilege, and one we definitely shouldn't take for granted.
