  1. Love it. These Friday posts make me think how artists capture human vulnerability.

  2. I often wonder about how some people come to be born with the gift of artistic impression. What a remarkable gift jaw drops when I see such a deep and fine ability to reflect emotion on a two-dimensional surface.

    Remarkable. I so appreciate your sharing these.

  3. They're all varying degrees of beautiful, but the W.S. Kendall is stunning!

  4. these are gorgeous, all of them are gorgeous... I can't wait to go check out the new art link you have over there...

    I think I like the last one the best but that's only because it appeals right now....another time, another painting.... thank you for posting such loveliness each week...

  5. These are superb. I visited Gericault's grave at Pere Lachaise in Paris last month. You have reminded me thaqt I need to put up some photos of it!

  6. Oh, Pagan, lovely as usual. Art has and continues to save us from ourselves...

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."
