These are simply breath-taking! I could stare at them all day. The fine detail and smooth blending of colors are something that is lost today, in my opinion. The quotes are a perfect match too, especially Picasso.

Great artwork and quotes about art. My husband and were amazed at all the art in the Vatican churches.

Stunning paintings Septembermom. The first painting is especially dramatic with the woman's eyes. Amazing!!

Michele Horne said...

I love the Picasso quote. I so wish I had some sort of fine art talent, although I do take solace in my photography, there is just something about brush to canvas...
