up close & personal: art


while we're all dunking & dying our beautiful Easter Egg masterpieces this weekend, this time of year always gets me excited about detailed art. i've come across a couple of brilliant websites that both little rikrak and i love for online viewing of some of the world's most famous artworks!

how about the very best view we're ever going to get of the amazing sistine chapel: michaelangelo's masterpiece.visiting, you can zoom in on the most intricate details of this amazing work (and perhaps best of all - no throngs of crowds to compete with!)

or using google street view technology, how about viewing your favourite art gallery masterpieces from around the world; up close and personal on Google Art Project (look at the brush strokes! wow!)

the kids will love it!
and i think you might too, cuties!

have a beautiful, inspiring weekend, nicies.
