    I tried to pick a favorite."Rope-walker" immediately reminded me of "Uprising," a great favorite of mine by Lyonel Feininger. The similarity is not apparent, but a kindred spirit seems to enliven both paintings. For me, anyway. I am a very visceral responder to art.

    What a lovely gift to the world: a painting a day. For the still lifes, the obvious comparison is with Cezanne. But Stashinski fruits are so much more kinetic.

    Both of "kids" are teemingly talented. Their devotion to each other comes through in their photograph.

    Thanks so much for sharing this site with me. For ready consultation whenever I need a lift, I'm going to save it in a file I've named DELECTATIONS (that is, Delights).

  2. I like this picture for colorful image of old Europe, it came from fairy tales and street entertainment is still actual.
