  1. What a lovely painting. The woman seems to be focused elsewhere, just by the slight tilt of her head.

    Thank you for the link and all the links and for your warmth and Shabbat Shalom!

  2. Thank you for the link! I agree with Leora – the painting is lovely and the subject does seem to be focused elsewhere. I love the soft tones – reminisicent of a summer morning.
    I’m looking forward to reading all your other links over the weekend.
    Shabbat Shalom!

    • You’re welcome! I hope you enjoy at least some of the reading material.
      A poster for an exhibition featuring this painting hangs on a wall in the downstairs corridor at home but this is the original, photographed last summer in a small Danish town.
