    I think you and Sketchy+ should go riding on the buses together, pads in hand.

    You have a real eye for art and models and costumes that I wish were still in fashion. I love that period for Art in all directions as well. Have you ever seen the busts and other French sculptures in the Musee d'Orsay in Paris? Walls lined with portraits in (pure white rock like marble?) that defy thinking that they weren't real.

    I think that was when realism was at an all time high, especially considering they didn't have computers.

    Be that as it may, I think it fascinating that you have taken a picture that the French Academy in 1897 would have touted as good and correct, and drawn it in the style of some of the artists who were breaking out of those narrow (though magnificent) confines and began to tell the Academy to get stuffed, and proceeded to push the artistic envelope into abstraction.

    So you, my dear Dr. Lima, are playing the artistic rebel. Bet the girls are lining up to share your wine at the sidewalk cafe.

    At thank you dear friend I know that you like him.
    Akey,

    Jasmine,
    Pat,
    Silvy,
    Thank you all very much.

    Akey, I read your comments as if I were reading a chronicle of a famous writer. It is a pleasure to read you playing with words and nice sentences and learn with your deep knowledge about Art. I visited the Beaubourg soon after his inauguration and the Louvre. But I had not the opportunity to visit the d'Orsay. Thank you for your comment my dear friend and a good wine for you too.
