Slow down, Hurry up


James Tissot The Magi Journeying

I went with my family to the Carl Bloch exhibit down at the MOA in Provo. It was a knock out. Perfect for this time of year too. I loved looking and the images of Christ. I've seen many of them before, but there were new ones too--all incredible.

Downstairs they had an exhibit for James Tissot. His detailed paintings blew me away. I have this print postcard size clipped to my December calendar.

Two things/points I wanted to make. Get down to Provo. hurry. AND also hurry over to the lds.org Christmas page. I spent all Sunday morning on it. Just what I needed.

I loved both exhibits too. Last week in institute I did a slideshow of about 20 Tissot paintings featuring the last week of Christ's life. To me, it was so moving.
