I first learned of the magic of Odilon Redon when I was a college student, studying in France.
I had already fallen in love with all the Impressionists. But when I saw Redon I felt like I was being reunited with an old and very dear friend.

Odillon Redon is another of my very favorite artists. He is a contemporary of the more famous Impressionists but doesn't fit entirely into the same classification.
I find his work magical. This painting is one I can comfortable just look at for a very long time.
It reminds me that the spiritual coexists alongside but is not limited by the material.

This is the first Klimt I ever saw and it knocked me off my feet. I had never seen a painting that so perfectly expressed love, tenderness and passion. It is still my favorite.
