Malheureusement...

No, I'm not in the UK - wish I were! I'm back in the US for at least a year, working on French and doing some research which will hopefully result in a book.
Next time I go to the UK I'm planning...

Thank you, Rosemary!

NOT fulsome praise, just your due! Thanks for missing me. I miss myself, actually. My job has been consuming me lately but I will retire next July and I'm looking forward to being able to choose...

To lakshmip1949: It is indeed a pity...

Yes, I mourn Masaccio...his name meant "clumsy messy Tom" but he was anything but messy when he painted. His life may have been messy however, those were violent times. Thanks for your kind...

To lakshmip1949: Thank you, Lakshmi!

The setting sun in Florence transforms everything in such a wonderful way. This whole area is very clean since it is right across from Palazzo Pitti, and these little restaurants and cafes do a good...

To diomed: Grazie, Antonio!

Such a pleasure to be able to show these masterpieces. One wants to know more about Masaccio, and one wishes that he had not died so young. He was a natural genius...to me, quite equal to...

To batalay: I thought so...thank you!

Hello, Bulent,
Well, it goes to show, I should've trusted myself - I thought it was a scull originally (remembering Eakins' paintings of crew) but then I got confused and thought I was wrong. ...

To batalay: Pictures from an Exhibition - an exciting theme!

Thank you, Bulent, for adding my photo to your theme! At least, I think you did that. I can't figure out if only the creator of a theme is able to add photos to his/her own theme...that must be the...

To CLODO: Elliot Erwitt! Hee!

Well, nothing's perfect in the world of captures! I just barely managed to get this shot, the feet were moving fast! I may do a WS for the people who think I should have cropped more at the top. ...

Thanks for that "well done," Les!
