  2. That was absolutely BEAUTIFUL!! I love Monet and Mary Cassatt as well...Beautiful Kay!

  3. I like Monet, Cassatt, and Renoir, too.

  4. Nice list. Isn't art wonderful!

  5. What a great list. You left out Monet...Okay, that's my list. Have a great TT. :)

  6. I think that a few of those artists were a little crazy. but thats why they paint so well I guess. I like optical illusion paintings also.

  7. The colors really pop out on my computer. Or is it your blog? So beautiful. I feel classier visiting your blog! :0)

  8. I love Norman Rockwell,he is my most favorite.
    a local funeral home puts out a norman rockwell calender every year and I always go by and get one !!Even though its a little morbid!!

  9. Wonderful list, reminds me I want to take the kids to the art museum...for me Georgia O'Keefe would have been on the list as well.

  10. Those are some beautiful paintings, Kay! I enjoyed just looking at them. Thanks for sharing.

  11. Beautiful...I had to come back and pretty and comforting. Thanks.

    I am flying out to Orlando tomorrow till Tuesday. I will be leaving the kids with Grandma..pray for Grandma and the kids. :)

  12. Dali had a very singular way of looking at his subject, but I find it very engaging. I always enjoy his work. And I love the Dutch masters, with their wonderful use of light and shade.


I love to hear your thoughts!
