Élisabeth Louise Vigée Le Brun

imageYesterday I went to see the exhibit at The National Gallery Of Canada which just so happens to be in my city. It was $16 for it as well with that you get to see the other pieces of art in the gallery. There were 90 pieces of her art work.

She really had an eye and was extremely talented. I went by myself and though some people took photos and some pieces I’m sure you could take photos of. I chose not to take any of the work it self but more of the building.

I wanted to just experience the art and have it be ingrained in my memory. We’re so caught up to snap photos and stick it on social media that we sometimes forget to just live in the moment and enjoy things for what they are.

imageThe National Gallery Of Canada is a pretty cool building in of its self as well as the art piece sculpture that’s in front of it. Yes that is in fact a huge spider with eggs in the bottom of it.

The long building behind me is really actually beautiful  architecture I think. And the neat thing is when you walk in after you pay you can walk up the ramp that’s on the inside . And the ceiling is pretty cool I’d say.image

As you can see by the photo on the right. The ceiling really is quite beautiful. I only went to the one exhibit I didn’t bother with the rest of the Gallery and after about 45 minutes of looking at art my back was starting to get sore from all the standing. My plan is to go back when I have nothing planned and go earlier in the morning. I went in the afternoon.

I think it’s a great little thing to do when you don’t have much planned but want to do something. And it’s air- conditioned so you can’t beat that lol.

imageAlso the photo with the spider with the taller building has imagealso a very cool ceiling and I had to get a shot of me in it but I also took a shot of it with out me.

Ive always liked unique buildings and architecture. What can I say but I  appreciate different things.

Anyways if you ever make it to Ottawa then you should visit The National Gallery Of Canada and check out their website for more information as well what exhibits are taking place.
