Virtual Visiting

For a while now Saturdays have been for virtual visiting at this blog. Museums, art galleries (and really, I should have included gardens, like Monet's) and generally hanging out on the Net, but being a bit cultured about it. Even as I shared links that caught my attention, I wondered if what I was really revealing was the emptiness of the Net. Can a virtual experience of a painting be as good as standing with sore feet (from all those marble floors) in front of the original?

Google Art Project answers that question with a resounding YES!

Honestly, all I want now is time to indulge in some serious gallery gazing. The site and the quality of the images are amazing.
