Sorolla's Light

On Friday I headed down to San Diego with my friend Sydney to see the Joaquin Sorolla exhibit at the The San Diego Museum of Art in Balboa Park before it closes on the 26th of August.



It is an amazing show to say the least!




I have always liked his work but to see his work up close and in person allows you to see each bold brush stroke, the vibrant colors he used and his beautiful use of light.





I was blown away!




Photo's in art books and on the Internet just do not do it justice.  There is so much light in these beauties!
