Sunshine


This is another painting I like, it has a warm summery feel to it and is so full of light. I do not know the name of the painting but the artist is Frank Weston Benson (1862 - 1951) an American Impressionist painter. I suspect the young woman is one of his daughters as they were the subjects for many of his works. I do hope you like the brightness and warmth of the colours.

So nice to see you over here Lil Lamb. I'm glad you like this painting. No comedy here yet I will have to see what I can come up with to make everyone laugh. :)

Seriously, I love this genre. It IS a very beautiful painting. I only wish, just once, that the other pugs would not poke fun as I sit and read Jane Austin with MY parasol by the loading dock.

love the Impressionists! nice to see your blog here... did you know your blog name is also words to a song?

dianne said...

/t. Thanks baby you have bought some laughs to this rather serious Blog,early days yet but I'm sure your comments will lighten things up. <3

Puggles my darling, dont let them make fun of you, I love a sensitive gentlepug. Reading Jane Austen or poetry sitting in a sunny spot in my prettiest flowing muslin dress is one of my favourite pastimes. Maybe we could read together? <3

Thanks for dropping by Pete, I love the impressionists too; most people associate them with the French painters but there are so many. I realised my Blog was named after some song lyrics when I posted Loreena McKennitt's song, actually I was just offering everyone a little piece of my heart. <3

tried to find the title, though not so successful, so....
A bit of history ain't bad, eh?
He tried the group in France of Monet.

Thanks Boney, I didn't have any success with the title of the painting on the Web, I'll have to go to the library and see if I can find the info there. :)

In this painting you can almost hear the birdsongs and feel the warmth of the sun.

Yes M, I can feel the sunshine myself and hear the birds singing, what a lovely place to be - sitting there in those pretty clothes and surroundings. :) xoxoxo
