One Work of Art Wednesday

If I could own only one work of art…hm, any work of art? I’m tempted to choose a huge installation (one that I could live in...Oh! I know…I would choose San Marco in Florence, the museum that houses the murals by Fra Angelico. ), but I’ll restrict it to a smaller object. This one is so tough, I’m even going to restrict it to more modern-day paintings.
I can narrow it down to two, at least, two of my favorite redemptive artists:

#1: Everlasting Fire by Erica Grimm-Vance and #2: Columbine Flowers by Makoto Fujimura

I'd have to go with Singer-Sargent's "Carnation, Lily, Lily, Rose" or Vermeer's "Little Street" ... I'd probably have to flip a coin.

i had to go look both of these up, but I really appreciate the Vermeer choice! One of my favorites as well. And Singer-Sargent is really unbeatable for figure painting.

Thanks!
