The Oyster Eater --- Day 2/26

Walk: Mindful Body
Distance: 18 blocks and take yoga class (yea!)

This gem is tiny standout in the current Girl with a Pearl Earring: Dutch Paintings from the Maritshuis show at the de Young.  The pictures below don't capture it's exquisite clarity and perfect details.  Only a bit less than 6 x 8 inches, it exudes energy like a brilliant diamond.

Jan Steen, The Oyster Eater, 1658-1660, oil on canvas, ca 6"x 8"
