The Clark Institute

I enjoyed a wonderful trip to The Clark Institute in Williamstown, MA today. The building, galleries, and grounds are as beautiful as the huge art collection inside. Definitely worth a trip.

Below are a few of my favorites. I love seeing the artworks up close and examining the brushstrokes. It’s just amazing to me what these artists have done with just a little paint.

Norman Rockwell Museum

Out in the Berkshires this weekend and visited the Norman Rockwell Museum in Stockbridge, MA yesterday, full of classic American art. He spent many years illustrating covers of the magazine the Saturday Evening Post and made over 4000(!) paintings. I love how he captured expressions on people’s faces and told an entire story in one picture.  Also the amount of detail is really incredible.
