I love these posts. What a lovely painting so much happening. We have just come back from barcelona so much colour and excitement fabulous. Thank you for sharing x Rosemary B here: WOW! This is a lovely painting — group effort You know, I always pictured crusty old seamen sewing the sails. What a beautiful painting. Me too! He certainly idealizes the scene! He’s my favourite spanish painter… more than Goya or Velazquez… I love the way he masters light. If you come to Madrid I’ll take you to his museum which was the house he lived in. Really worth seeing, as much as Prado museum. Hi Ana, He is now my favorite Spanish painter, too!–though I just discovered him…There is nothing I would like more than to tour his house museum with YOU…Do you live in Madrid? My daughter spent a semester in your lovely city and I know she would love to return. Maybe we will make it there someday soon. I absolutely love the artwork that you find and share! I also am so appreciative for the free-motion quilting that you share with us. Just beautiful!!! the light is just brilliant and such an interesting busy setting!! Love it – thank you for sharing these paintings you find!! Comments are closed.
