  2. I adore the first painting you posted.
    We analyzed it thoroughly for my art appreciation class. I think we were suppossed to understand how shocking and contrary to custom it was for her to swing with her legs in the air and let that gentleman take a peek. I of course, was just mesmerized by the fun loving lady on the swing and the beautiful colors. :-)

  8. yes this is a great way to welcome spring.
    New York is getting warmer and warmer. I hope it doesnt rain today though...even though signs point to yes.

  10. Hannah! I saw so many amazing romantic & baroque paintings in various Prague museums (the National Gallery's collection there is so eclectic, I really enjoyed it.) I'm now exceptionally inspired for spring time weather and frolics in rose garden's or such behaviour.

    I am so very jealous of your kitty purchase!

  14. if I could be granted one wish it would be to paint like fragonard (if it had to be about me and not, you know, world peace or equality or all that other stuff more important than my artistic abilities).
