  5. These images I found soothing tonight. I think the surreal speaks to me right now! Great stuff.

    I think Today's Flowers should be OK now. I had the same problem, but it seems to be resolved now.

  10. Thank you all for the comments!

    LD: You may know this but Freud met Dali in 1938,in London. I may do a post on that meeting. It's interesting.

    Sandy: I'm genuine pleased that looking at this post made you feel relaxed. Art always relaxes me. That is, when it's not shocking me, which I also enjoy!

    Fabien: I love that painting. Delvaux is so good!

    Genie: great! I'm glad to have you as a new visitor and to get to know you through your blog, as well.

  11. Really awesome stuff. I always say I must learn more about art, visit a gallery and pay more attention. All I need to do is come here for the lessons. Great job Ms. Sphinx.

    Peace.

  12. Hey, Joe. Always good to get your comments, my friend. You pay attention to a lot of good and important things in your life, so if the only time you really take in art is here and there, that's okay! Glad it's here. :-)

  13. This is a very interesting collection of strange pictures - Giotto and Delvaux being the only artists with whom I'm familiar. You've done it again Pagan and I hope you do post what you discovered about the meeting between Freud and Dali.
