    6. Rachel the little dancer is my choice and I have been lucky enough to see her quite by chance while on holiday in Barcelona where there was an exhibition of Degas influence on Picasso.... totally delightful.

  4. Good collection. I esp. like your seascape, plus the colorful gardener, the kind of abstract fire thing, the man with the beard (who looks familiar but I can't place it) and ... always the Wyeth.

  8. the wyeth is christina's world. she was a neighbor of his wife's and could not walk. instead of using a wheelchair, she crawled everywhere. he was so inspired by her that he painted her in the field she used to crawl through to pick blueberries.

  11. I love the Seurat - it has always been one of my favourite paintings - there is a companion one on the other side of the lake where the figures are all well dressed and out for a stroll.

  12. The more modern bearded man is fabulous, his eyes are so expressive. I'm also liking the troll (?) on the beach, he's wonderful.

    1. She,
      I thought you may have recognised the house, fourth from the bottom. It's Gresgarth, in Caton. Isn't that your neck of the woods?

  20. I was intrigued by the "Hide And Seek" so I clicked on it to enlarge and there is an image of a horse in each square. It's very clever. Also thought the scotch egg was fun.
