  1. I love the Wyeth. And all the rest. Wonderful.

  2. Oh the Wyeth! That is one of my favorites of his. The loving way he painted all that fringe... It makes the whole painting more tactile, and somehow makes me able to feel, hear, and smell the sweet little dog. The warmth of it - the wet nose.

    All because of the fringe...

  3. The Wyeth is beyond words beautiful.

    But the Reynolds has an immediacy and warmth, with the little girl's love juxtaposed with the helpless dog's "WTF???"

  4. Yes. The Master's Bedroom has some great shadow and light. Beautiful.

    Also the Musatov's Boy with a Dog is spectacular.

    Thank you for being my museum of fine art. It is always a pleasure to come for a visit.

  8. Thanks, all. That Wyeth blows me away, too.

    And Steve, the depth of your perceptions of art never cease to amaze me.

    All the love,
    Pagan Sphinx

  11. Betmo, darlin' - I'm not much of a dog person, either, truthfully. Cunning Runt and girls and I had a dog for eight years. He was our foster child. The poor thing was very needy. We did our best to be his friends. But now I admire dogs all the time. I just don't know for sure if I want one. Then again, I do love cats, too. But we have one of my girls and one of WP's with cat allergies. And then there WP who loves his birds, he just can't accept them getting killed by SOMEONE'S vain pet. Sigh. He just doesn't understand cats...

  12. Cloudia - I'm very happy you come here now. :-)

    Mary _ you are responsible for some very wonderful photo inspiration: Ruby Tuesday and Window Views, both. A couple of my favorite themes. Thanks, Luv!The point and shoot for me is therapy, it's therapy, I say! :-D Cheaper and more effective than most pro therapists I've paid for!

  13. Someone mentioned liked Lucien Freud's painting. I love that one, am really interested in the other work. Yes, he is the grandson of Sigmund Freud (gasp!) I'm name dropping! ;-)

    And why I just thought of Oscar Wilde in the same breath as Sigmund and Lucien, I'm not sure...

Emily Dickinson - The Belle of Amherst
"When the Amherst sphinx styled herself a pagan, she meant she didn’t believe in the biblical God. What sort of deity, if any, she did believe in is hard to pinpoint."
