A Sentiment

God knew what He was doing when He sent a gentle breeze and brought a lovely butterfly to set my heart at ease. The happiness of your friendship and the gentleness of your words have touched my life in special ways and now I feel assured. Thank you for your loyalty and for reading everyday. I only hope you find things to make a happy day.

Sunlit Sunday

I always admired this print, when my mother in law was alive. She told me often that I could have it, because I was taking art lessons at that time. When she died...this was the thing that meant the most to me. I brought it home and it has graced my walls ever since.Now there is a little crack of sunlight shining on it in the window.

Dear Balisha,

Why is it that the instant I looked upon this beautiful print, it immediately reminded me of your own photo in your profile picture?! Perhaps because both artists are deep in concentration, expressing the passion of their creativity.

Lovely image, with the sunlight streaming in on her little studio through your own space and time.

Have a wonderful week!

A very lovely print - I've never seen it before. So sweet that it comes from your mom-in-law.

Hello, Balisha

It's so nice that you have something you love in its own right, but even more so because it was a thoughtful gift from your late mother-in-law.

Do you know the name of the person who did the original?

I can see why you like this photo, especially with a bit of sunshine on it.

Isn't it nice to see something with new eyes? Sometimes as you say just a bit of sunlight can refresh a view we've seen a hundred times before!

I never really checked this picture out. It is called... At The Louvre. Painted by Henri Cain...1893. My guess would be that he saw this woman painting at the Louvre and painted her.

It's a beautiful print and I can understand why you treasure it - both for the sentimental value and the charm of the subject. I have a Matisse print that has something of the same feeling about it. I think it's called the Red Room, but I could be wrong - a woman at a table in a red room. I love it.
