I'm pretty sure these are all Ruskin drawings. Watercolors over graphite and ink. Gorgeous.

A painting by Lepage of St. Joan of Arc, an old photograph of Alsacian folk dress, and an old drawing by my Great Grandfather 1914. What do these all have in common? All, including St Jeanne herself, the maid of Dom Remy, Lorraine, Lepage the painter and my family on one side, are from the Alsace-Lorraine region. I love history.

Don't paint men to look like pansies. Eakins did well.

Brilliant and beautiful, Sorolla. What is it about this painting that I love so much? The confident brushstrokes, the cadmium, cobalt blue and emerald highlights in her hair? The vermilion reflected under her chin from that electric red blouse that is so brilliantly painted it doesn't take away from those angelic, dark mysterious eyes? And that yellow rose, balancing everything and bringing it all together from highlights in her flesh, the tones in the background and cleverly higher in value that the red blouse. The complimentary grey green of the background, the two wisps of curls under the left ear, only a master can pull off after much practice. I could stare at this painting for a very long time.
