The art of quiet

Hanging in the Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam, Pieter de Hooch's painting may be of a mother delousing her child's hair, but this little picture is one of my favorite Dutch works. You can almost feel the air circulating through the room and the warmth from the light streaming in. It's quiet too...like yoga for your eyes.  On a side note: if you've never been to Amsterdam for the art, go!
