Matisse is one of my favorites of the big named painters. I didn't know today was the day he died. This is a lovely piece, and it made my morning to see it. Happy election day. I am being cautiously optimistic about results. It should be interesting to see what happens as results come in tonight, or at least as many results as can. George Stephanopoulos on Good Morning America said that voters decide the election, not the president. Good words to remember for me (at least) today. And happy T day.ReplyDelete
We'll just hafta see if trump and his DOJ allow the voters' votes to be counted. I'm expected something at midnight about stopping the count. I hope an early landslide makes it moot.Delete
A beautiful, calming image. Thank you. I needed this. Happy T DayReplyDelete
I know of Matisse well. My grandmother, (Nan) was an artist and spent her youth going around the world and being tutored by some of the finest artist. Matisse was one of them. Love this post.ReplyDelete
I love Matisse!ReplyDelete
Sadly, Kathy in Ozarks, that fascist blogger, linked her obnoxious post under the link "Divers and Sundry." What a stupid blogger. I have already decided not to read her idiotic rants any more. She only reads the most rampant right-wing fanatics. Needless to say I dread finding out that her side won the election -- or stole it.
be well... mae at maefood.blogspot.com
Matisse was my calming moment for today :)Delete
On the other hand, I found her response to my comment on her blog -shall we say- unwelcoming? lol so I've made my response at a new blog post: https://divers-and-sundry.blogspot.com/2020/11/election-thoughts.html
And that stupid blogger was me lol! I can't imagine how that happened, but I've added the right link. Thanks for the heads up. My poor brain!Delete
Sorry to misunderstand the mixed-up linkage. I admire you for trying to engage with an intentionally misinformed and malicious person; as I said, I'm not reading her blog any more as I think it's futile to talk to her. I have the same dread of the election going wrong as you do, and agree with everything you have said.Delete
We all have stupid moments lol. I feel it's important to talk across the aisle, but they are rarely willing :(Delete
I left her a comment just moments ago after linking from your blog post. I told her how there was no way I could do better than what you and CJ wrote, but then I gave her the reasons why I was voting. She may or may not respond or even publish my comment.Delete
Elizabeth, I am sorry about putting her link with my name in the linky. I didn't see a way to delete the mistaken link. That's what I get for tryinta do too much at once.Delete
She's been posting comments. Even those that disagree.
I've been a nervous wreck today. Thanks for that nice calming painting. Just breathe.ReplyDelete
Happy T-Day! Stay safe and stay well. Hugs, Eileen

Thanks for sharing this lovely painting.ReplyDelete
All the best Jan
Beautiful painting and what could be better than enjoying a cuppa whilst reading - perfect 😀. Wishing you a very Happy T Tuesday! Hugs, Jo xReplyDelete
I am a BIG fan of Matisse. I was surprised when I saw his first paintings at various museums and how different they were after he got into Fauvism. This is an excellent example of his body of work I love and a wonderful entry for T this Tuesday, too.ReplyDelete
What a beautiful painting ~ Happy T day!ReplyDelete
Lovely painting. Happy T-Day!ReplyDelete
A lovely wistful painting! Belated Happy T day, ChrisxReplyDelete
