The Japanese Bridge (The Water-Lily Pond, Water Irises) - Claude Monet

A Pinch of Snuff

Marc Chagall

May Picture

Paul Klee (German (born Switzerland), Münchenbuchsee 1879–1940 Muralto-Locarno)

Oil on cardboard.

This work is one of Paul Klee’s Magic Square series of oil paintings and watercolors that derive from the 1914 Tunisian watercolors in which he fractured the landscape into squares. They are also related to Klee’s preoccupation with the laws of color, prompted by his teaching at the Bauhaus. The squares in this painting might be viewed as odd-shaped stones-in all the colors of the rainbow, to say nothing of the various shades of gray-assembled to form an abstract mosaic.

The Tenderness My Father Didn’t Give to Me.

Painting and caption submitted by wanderfullauren:

I grew up with a father who gave me the world, minus the tenderness.  I love him so much, and he loves me.  But he didn’t have a father around to show him how to do it right.  

I am beginning a series of paintings that feature incredibly beautiful women who are looking for more than what this world has to offer.  

Thank you so much for your beautiful blog.  It brings me to tears.

Thank you for submitting, sweet one. I am glad that anyone else can enjoy it and heal from it as I do. Also, let me gently beseech you to use this series of paintings to portray women whose skin color and body size are not always described as beautiful in the mainstream media.
