Time out

Nicolai Fechin, Nasturtiums

Your blogger will be away until after Wednesday the 20th, and it is unlikely there will be any posting meanwhile.

Why the Fechin? Simply because I don't want you to feel you have clicked here totally in vain (although I may be totally vain to imagine you would care much), and because Fechin is perhaps the greatest painter in my experience who is largely unknown except to specialists. You have to see the original oils for your jaw to drop to its full range, but Nasturtiums is fine as reproductions go.

Well, okay. Here's another.
