http://www.metmuseum.org

Landscape with Stars, ca. 1905–06
Henri-Edmond Cross (French, 1856–1910)
Watercolor over pencil on paper; 9 5/8 x 12 5/8 in. (20.5 x 32.5 cm)

this was today's featured work of art..

am thinking of van Gogh's stars..

the stars of Henri-Edmond's imagination..

the stars of your imagination...

all our stars..

may they shine particularly brightly this evening..as the moon over Penrith is the roundest..most pearl-like it's ever ever been...this evening..

hugs to you who look to the stars and beyond...happy travels.. Wink

Thank you Madame, another gem. Very nice. Have added the pic a day to my favourites so I can see more.

Debbie Darling...it's the joy of not knowing..the click of that mouse ..and the gift of some wondrous form of creation..

such a time to be alive..the wonder of it all..

hugs to Paris Wink

Thanks Madame. Have given your love to Paris this evening when we went for a slow stroll around Montmartre. Absolutely glorious evening, temperature is balmy, the birds were all singing and the smell of spring was everywhere.

Give Sydney a big hug for me and tell it I will be back for a visit in August. Very Happy Be good to see everything and everyone again after 2 years.

Mme Shawshank,

Have you done the My Met Museum thing yet?

You register and then you can choose from the collection to create your own collection of images. When I was doing my Museum Studies MA I took great delight in making exhibitions from their collections.

The www.nga.gov site is a good one too. You can not only bring up the picture but look at details - great for pix with gorgeous costumes in!

Tho' I have to admit that the usual way I see stars is when I am not looking where I am going, hem, hem! Shocked Trees and lamp posts leap out at me in ambush... or am-tree in the case of trees.
