Today is the day we remember the birthday of Leonardo Da Vinci.
Much like an earlier celebration for van Gogh, I think I’ll let good ol’ Leo speak for himself.
So many things were attempted by Da Vinci, but so few were finished.
It’s everywhere on the net.
Go look for yourself.
Used to be, if you wanted to see his work, you had to travel.
At least to your local library, for a book on the artist.
Nowadays, all you have to do is type a few words.
But it’s not the same as seeing them live.
I once had the very good fortune to be in Florence, and saw Michelangelo’s David.
Having seen pictures of it all my life, I still wasn’t prepared for the reality.
The physicality of the piece, I’m convinced, will never be sufficiently capture by a photo.
You need to see it in person.
You need to see all of them in person.
