An Art Blast for the senses!

There is something that tugs at the pit of the stomach quite urgently when I do not follow my heart. I'm dying to paint but obviously not dying enough to make that my priority, so my progress has been dismal.
June however presented a great opportunity to experience the timeless art treasures of Italy. The awe inspiring Vatican museums, Uffizi Gallery of Florence and countless other treasures. It was a grand experience for me, and an inspiration too.
Venice had a little treasure of a gallery - The Peggy Guggenheim Collection. From Picasso to Pollock, Dali to Kandinsky, it was a treat! If a collection half as significant as this were to tour New Delhi there would be pandemonium! It would be talked about in every forum, art club, in every tea party.
And similarly if the rich art heritage of India was to tour other countries what an experience it would be for art lovers there. A win win situation either way.
