Bonnard is life

Just because I felt slightly guilty about having only offered you a quite smart but somewhat second-hand image today, I am giving you this offering as well. It is not at all original, but I love Bonnard, whose painting just reeks of the pleasure of living, feeling and seeing. It also makes me long for the summer and its magical light. Backlighting can work for painting just as much as it does for photography.


  1. I love it. My instructor toda compared my work to Bonnard's. Quite a compliment, wouldn't you say? I agree completely with your characterization of this painting.
