Enter within yourself and work in the presence of your Bridegroom, who is ever present loving you. Saint John of the Cross Sayings of Light and Love, 90
The Milkmaid Johannes Vermeer (Dutch, 1632-1675) Oil on canvas, c. 1660 Rijksmuseum Gallery label: A maidservant pours milk, entirely absorbed in her work. Except for the stream of milk, everything else is still. Vermeer took this simple everyday activity and made it the subject of an impressive painting – the woman stands like a statue in the brightly lit room. Vermeer also had an eye for how light by means of hundreds of colorful dots plays over the surface of objects.
