hi there Monica, just calling in to wish you and yours a wonder-filled weekend. Off on my travels again soon so hope to catch up with everyone when I return. hugs aplenty to you xPenx
Hi Diana, Thanks! nice post, too
Danke dir, Freundin
Hello dear Andro – Hanging on to that vision, I’m wishing you a wonderful week, too!
If you missed it, I mentioned you in my latest post, Why We Read. 😉
I hope that your Tuesday is a
truly delightful one my great friend 🙂
Wünsche dir liebe Monika eine schöne glückliche Woche.Gruß und Freundschaft.Gislinde
They are a vision to some and yet to others they are a reality and of course wickedness holds the key 😉 Don’t be too naughty though or you might wake up and spoil it 🙂 lol Have a very nice rest of evening Monica, and thank you for all of your thoughts on my Space 🙂
Well, this lovely comment brought me back, all right! Golden beaches and lapping ocean waves – indeed! I wish! I am still waiting for the three (a mystical number, I think) offering strawberries and Champagne. What a vision, Andro!
Dear Andro, I apologize for being so slow in responding. Summer has been a busy time with friends and family and other nice distractions keeping me from WordPress and computers in general. Hope to be back soon to check out your fine space, my friend.
I am just calling in to see what you are getting up to my great friend, you are probably on your vacation laying on a sand swept golden beach sipping Martini’s whilst the ocean laps across your toes 🙂 😉 How do you mean I forgot to mention the three slaves that are offering you strawberries and pouring out the chilled Champagne? 😉 lmao I hope that this is all fact 🙂
I am not exactly back yet but while I was pottering around my Space replying to everyone I thought that I would call in here for another look through these fine paintings and I am not disappointed either 🙂 🙂
I hope that you are very well and having lots of fun Monica, now that Hump Day is here it will soon be the weekend and a time for lots of enjoyment, hey make sure that you have lots of laughs, girlie giggles and lashings of wicked delights 😉 Not necessarily in that order but you know what I mean? 😉
Okay time to zoom off now but I will be
calling back again soon my great friend 🙂
Interesting and unusual – keep cool, dear friend
It is so far my great friend, and wow what a hot summer we are enjoying here in the UK 🙂 🙂 If only I had a portable swimming pool 🙂
diese feinen Wünsche sowie für dich
Wünsche dir eine glückliches schöne Woche.Gruß und Freundschaft.Gislinde
Du bist die Beste!!
It is a long way, Segmation, and San Diego is a very special place, too!
Hi Monica, Thanks for replying back. I hope I can go to see this then in Brooklyn but it is a long way from San Diego. http://www.segmation.com
Hello Segmation, The exhibit is there until the end of July, but many of the watercolors belong to the Brooklyn Museum. They were purchased by a visionary at the museum directly from Sargent in one fell swoop. But I don’t think so many are usually on display.
Hello dear Andro, Thank you for your lovely comment. I hope your summer is easy and full of beautiful days.
Danke sehr, Jasmin, und eine sonnige Woche auch für dich
Is this John Singer Sargent at the Brooklyn Museum a permanent exhibit in Brooklyn? http://www.segmation.wordpress.com
What an absolute treat Monica, these paintings are excellent 🙂 Of course I would have liked to have seen them in person but your photographs have certainly added a fascination for his work 🙂 Thank you for adding these my sweet and great friend, and also for calling in and reading my latest scripts 🙂 Have a beautiful start to your Tuesday Monica and be well my dear 🙂
herzlichen danck monika wuensche dir fuer morgen einen sonniegen wochen beginn alles liebe von jasmin
kein GEFÄLLT MIR..klick gefunden meine LIEBE???
Hallo Andrea, es war so viel Spaß, dort zu sein! Grüße an dich!
It did, Pen!
hi Monica, having a bit of trouble posting comments, just trying to answer on the ‘indicator’ thingy at the top of the dashboard, see if that works at all.. xxx
Hi Ian, Isn’t it fun to find somebody you really like and never heard about before? I love when that happens! Best to you!
Yes, Bluebee, Sargent captures so much in the eyes. I love the perspective in “Pomegranates”, too – we can just pick one and eat it right there. I thought I might run into you at the museum. Maybe someday.
Oh Jasmin – Ich wünsche, dass diese meine Gemälde waren! Meine einzige Beitrag ist Bewunderung! Vielen Dank für deinen Besuch und die guten Wünsche – das gleiche zu dir!
Diese Gemälde sind ja sehr schön! Eine sehr gute Woche für meine Freundin
Hi Kenny, Monet is OK; that’s my poem for the day.
Hi Pen, Who’d have thought, indeed! Sargent’s whites speak volumes. There was a painting I didn’t photograph with sheets on the bed – gorgeous.
Thank you, Ela – I think so, too.
Obviously he was a great master, he had an eye for the portrayal of the Arab Bedouins, and went to great lengths to capture them on canvas, an artist I had never heard off until now.
Thank you Monica.
Envious! Just wonderful! Thanks for sharing, Monica. I love ‘Pomegranates’ – a gorgeous contrast of colour. And ‘Cashmere Shawl’ has such beautiful silken textures. ‘Bedouins’ is compelling – hasn’t he captured something in the eyes of that penetrating gaze?
du malst sehr sehr schoen deine bilder sind special wuensche dir noch einen guten tag alles liebe von jasmin damaro in belgien
Schöne Gemälde wünsche einen schönen Tag und eine gute neue Woche Gruß Gislinde
All very nice Monica. But “MONET” is my man 🙂 x
I clicked and watched the larger slideshow Monica, and who’d have thought that washing on a line would make such a good Watercolour to view? Yet it does. The whole group captures movement and colour and LIFE so well. Glad I caught up with you and your Museum visit. xPenx
und Auszüge von meinem TULPE(n)PARADIES:
Viel SPASS damit und einen schönen TAG wünscht ANDREA:))
They are all marvellous! 🙂
