As was said before, there is nothing like seeing a great painting in person. That's where the energy of the painting hits you.
A prime example is "Lady with a Parasol." It appeared at an impressionist exhibit in D.C. There were many famous paintings at the exhibit. But that one stood out head and shoulders above the rest.
The energy that is emitted from that painting is unbelievable. Prior to seeing it in person, I had wondered "What's so great about that picture?" in a sort of hohum way.
Although it's many years later now, I can still feel it. THAT'S what is great about it!
Maybe psychic energies are embedded into the paint while painters are painting and concentrating and focusing upon their canvas for relatively long time periods which would be kind of like a type of ghost?!
This one by Monet:
Maybe because she's looking right at you.
Could be. But it only happened when I saw it in person. I have a small copy hanging on my living room wall, but it doesn't have the same impact.
Pray for me.
