Pictures from "Baby's Rhyme Book"

 Welcome to all of you. The days of isolation pass and I am more comfortable with the quiet. I need to find peace and serenity away from the news. I encourage those who can to take a break and find as much beauty and solace in creative endeavors. Getting lost in all the thousands of graphics stored on my computer is so satisfying. But I need to share them with you! Enjoy them. Print and use them in something you are making. These charming little ladies look very happy to be outdoors.

Time to write Organise my thoughts.

I have so much to say about all the different events that are happening around the world. Finding the right words and writing my thoughts down so they make sense just has not come together.  Maybe it is because I am very passionate and do not understand why everyone does not agree with me! After all my point of view and beliefs are based on love and compassion. I believe we are here to help each other through life.

"Japonisme" Umbrellas and Parasols. Artists Richard Edward Miller and Henri Lebasque

Hi and welcome to you all. Today I have pretty paintings, some which reflect design in Japan. To quote Wikipedia as they are much more concise and better said they I.

 "Japonisme is a French term that refers to the popularity and influence of Japanese art and design in western Europe in the nineteenth century following the forced reopening of trade of Japan in 1858.  Japonisme was first described by French art critic and collector Philippe Burty in 1872. 

While the effects of the trend were likely most pronounced in the visual arts, they extended to architecture, landscaping and gardening, and clothing"

My Grandmother's house was sprinkled with decorations and art work that as an adult I realized was influenced by the Japonisme art movement. Maybe that familiarity is one of the reason I am so drawn to Japonisme.

Hope you have a wonderful day!

I really like this one. It would be so pretty framed and hung in my bedroom.
