Medium of the Art/Technique of the Artist
Below is me with the Painting Tokyo Street with Panchinko Parlor II by YvonneJacquette. I have actually seen this painting before in a restaurant called Kogen's from my hometown in Ohio. Although I recognized the painting since this was at a restaurant my family and I frequented often, when I saw it in that restaurant, I didn't see it the same way I saw it in the museum. It was very different seeing it in person because I was able to see how each and every detail that could be a small as a dot made up this giant picture that looked so realistic.
Considering the fact that it reminded me of home, this painting made me feel happy. If I hadn't of seen this painting before, I think it would've made me want to travel. I've been to Chicago, but I didn't go to downtown Chicago at night and I've never seen New York City, which this painting makes me want to go visit! Something I thought about was how busy the streets of big cities can be, and how people can be in such a rush and easily ignore the beauty of where they are. It made me think that I need to always appreciate my surroundings, especially when I travel, and that I should make more time for myself to never rush so I can always do so-which has been brought up before in lecture.
