corner view: all the small things

Corner View is a weekly appointment - each Wednesday - created by Jane (Spain) and curated by Francesca (Italy), where bloggers from all corners of the world share their view on a pre-arranged theme. The theme this week is "all the small things", and comes from Babies (Slovenia).

"Great things are done by a series of small things brought together" ~ Vincent Van Gogh

Oh, it's a good idea to show us a painting to illustrate this topic. There are always lots of very interesting details to see.

So very lovely. Our Museum of Fine Art is hosting The Age of Impressions. I went two years ago and I am looking forward to going at Christmas time.I am a small moment person but this will be a big moment for me.

Interesting - the details- up close doens't look like a boquet of flowers- but from afar- a work of art!! Love how you did that!

perfect quote, and perfect and appropriate iconographic way to prove it!

Came over here, when I was mesmerized by this picture, in your Sidebar.

This is such a lovely post!

And I love, love, love how you showed us close up, and then farther and farther "out." Love this technique, for showing pictures. !!!!
