Jessie's face in resin from Toy Story - notice how its all gridded off for computer animation.
After we did some quick shopping, lunch and a drive around San Fransicso, we headed to Golden Gate Park. The highlight of the day was the Impressionists Exhibit at the De Young Museum called: Van Gogh, Gauguin, Cézanne, and Beyond: Post-Impressionist Masterpieces from the Musée d’Orsay. It started with Degas ballerinas, then onto some unbelievable Renoir's, Gauguin, and Cezanne. Unfortunately you were not allowed to take photographs --- but.... we sneaked a few - the quality is not the best but not bad for cell phone pics:
But the most incredible was seeing Van Gogh's Starry Night and his Self Portrait.
What amazed me the most was how Van Gogh put bright colors together to form neutrals. I don't believe the face of his self portrait includes any skin tones or tans - its made up of red, blue, yellow and mostly bright primaries. His self portrait I believe is now my all time favorite painting. It was one of those days I'll never forget - the paintings and the artwork were mind boggling and I was able to enjoy it with my family - how great it is to have a husband and grown up kids that enjoy going to art galleries as much as you do.
