Catching Up

Yes, we are in Ireland and it is grand . . . smiling.

It’s good to be settled for a few weeks, to have a home where the suitcases are unpacked and we are not in unremitting tourist mode, where we can make sense of all we’ve seen and have time for some art.

But a part of my heart is still in London. I’ve finally shaken the cold I had and have more energy, so will finish the postings I wanted to make there but didn’t have the energy for. Then I’ll feel completely committed to Ireland.

Today I’m posting a slide show of a few of my favorite paintings from London. They are in chronological order. The art has been so magnificent it’s not possible to say ‘this is my favorite painting.’ We’ve seen old favorite and discovered amazing unknown (to us) artists. I often walked into a room and glanced around and found myself drawn to a particular painting only to discover that it was a Rembrandt or a Singer-Sargent that I had never seen before. The Picasso’s and Degas’ and Renoir’s and Manet’s and Monet’s were mostly familiar images, but not all. And the newly discovered artists amazed me.

Below is a slim selection. There isn’t time to post them all.

Enjoy . . .

    Glad you’re enjoying it, Robin. It’s been grand! I have two new posts I hope to put up tonight, including another art post.

    Wow, it just keeps getting better and better with each entry and the art you both have chosen to share with us several thousand miles away. The style of art is so different as well as the subject matter. Very interesting and I have a few favorites myself.

    Thanks for taking the time to share!
