delighted / happy


L- Nikon / T - Nikon

I was out of town, walking amongst formal rose gardens, natural wildflower gardens and through a museum with great pieces of American art - Grant Wood and Georgia O'Keefe, just to name a few – captivated by the beauty around me and I received a photo text from Taylor. It was a painting that she had started working on. I had no idea she was even painting again - and just for fun. Do you know how happy that made me? I was looking at the work of famous artists but the work of this artist is what gave me delight. On the subject of art - I'm wondering who is one of your favorite artist? One of mine is Pierre Bonnard / i had an idea in my head so i got out my paintbrushes. i'm really please with the way it's turning out and i'm enjoying doing it. and guess what else - Lilly got adopted today. so happy.

Again, how perfectly these images work together. How perfect. Loving Taylor's painting, loving that Lilly was adopted, loving it all. Delighted/happy indeed!

Favorite artists? Lots and lots at different times. Manet stays consistently on my good side. :)

I love them both! I am so in awe of people who can draw and paint. Despite my attempts, that ability seems to have passed me by.

Beautiful! Cool that Taylor is painting!

My favorites are probably some of the Dutch masters - Rembrandt, VanGogh, Van Ruysdael - but I do like Georgia O'Keefe too.

Oh, I love so many artists. Van Gogh, Childe Hassam, Fantine Latour, Rene Magritte, Rembrandt, Renoir...

T, that is such a gorgeous piece...what talent you have!

I don't know if I have a favourite artist...I just fall in love with particular paintings at random. :) But my dad and my brother are both artists and I am a huge fan of their work. So maybe I have a couple of favourites after all!
