Hydrangeas, Oil on Board, 23"x34"
One of the most perfect paintings I have seen is Rogier Van de Weyden's Decent from the Cross.  It almost makes me weep.  I've been thinking about it as I ponder the blues of this painting.  Weyden's Virgin is in blue and she so perfectly echoes Christ's body as if she herself were crucified.  
Decent from the Cross, Roger Van de Weyden
