  1. What a fantastic, diverse set this Friday night! I love the vibrant colors in the Matisse. And I love the detail transition in the Alma-Tadema.

  5. I love them all but the Matisse...
    I'm such a sucker for the way he paints fabric and wallpaper prints. Brilliant. And the colors...

  6. I'm glad to see these - I was afraid the series was over! Love all of these - particularly the Alma-Tadema composition and handling of fabric and skin tones. Mmmmm.

    I have a Schiele nude over at my place - and I thought of your series of Friday Nudes when I posted it.

  7. Steve - I sometimes don't post the nudes on Fridays for one reason or another but it's something I love doing and time-wise, easy to put out and fun. What makes it is the comments!

    I'll be over to your blog tonight, as I'm putting some time into blogging tonight.Meanwhile W.P. is safely tucked into bed, snoring lightly. :-)
