The Metropolitan Museum of Art is a beautiful 3 hour train ride down the coast from my dads in Massachusetts. My dad and I went for the first time last summer (blog entry here), and despite the freezing weather, couldn't pass on another trip. The European Painting and Sculpture wing at the Met is fantastic, and probably the most inspiring (and humbling) spot I've ever set foot in. I took a ton of pictures again; this time focusing more on detail than entire paintings. Here's a few bunch of my favorites (below). I will hereby aspire to paint as good as any of these guys for the rest of my life - I will likely fail, but man, what a good way to spend a "career" right?
