A silver bowl, a lemon, a knife, a bottle and a glass on a salver on a draped marble ledge:
by Louise De Hem, who died on November 22, 1922, at the age of 55. How did she make that lemon look like a real lemon? It looks more "real" than some photos I've taken. The skill and eye of artists are awe-inspiring as I look at paintings I come across.
Please join me in a cuppa
while I admire the art in this painting and in the posts of folks participating in the weekly T Stands for Tuesday blogger gathering.
Some of you were kind enough to suggest sources for free books online, and I'd like to share one of my favorites: the University of Adelaide online books library. I also find good things at Online Literature, at the Internet Archive and at Project Gutenberg.
