This painting has long been my favourite. When I paint, I want to paint a Portail.
It is a watercolour painting, over traces of graphite, and is housed in the Metropolitan Museum of Art, in New York. It is also featured on the internet with other works by Jacques-André Portail (1695-1759).
After writing my blog this morning, I had a malaise. So let this painting be my post for the day.
Allow me to wish you a lovely weekend.
Here is the gift of music: Adagio, by Chopin.Micheline Walker© June 1, 2012 WordPress
Thanks for the soothing post. Your blog is so elegant. I wish I could call what I sometimes have a ‘malaise.’ Hope you’re doing better now. Have a great weekend. Wesley
I thank you for your note. The word “malaise” is an umbrella term. Today, I fainted and had no reason to faint. But I feel much better. The music is soothing and it matches the painting. Have a very fine weekend.
Micheline, thank you so much for this post. Both painting and music are my favorites. I hope with all my heart to feel much better today.
I wish you good health and much happiness!
Big hugs 🙂
