Say It With Art - Dear Sam,
I found a painting by William Merritt Chase that is in the Phillips Collection thinking someday my family might have a chance to go and see it together. It reminded me of the wonderful hide and seek game we playedthe last time we were together. The picture is very dark, evocative of the excitement and anticipation felt during the game. Also, the composition is unusual, there is a lot of empty space which heightens the dramatic effect.
