Van Gogh At The National Gallery

Van Gogh's Sunflowers
My best friend happened to be in town so we went to see Van Gogh's Sunflowers at the National Gallery. The exhibition was free as there were only two paintings - both sunflowers by Van Gogh - but the queue was long. Anyway the paintings were bigger than I expected. I stood in front of them soaking up the gorgeousness of the colour.

Later my friend's only comment was that she thought the marketing machine had gone over-board for a couple of paintings of whithered flowers. What a pleb. Next time I go to an exhibition I'll take my partner instead. He's surprisingly appreciative of fine art for a suited business man.
