For Louis. A little brown bird on a white branch, on the upper left, fixedly looks at its beloved sweetheart gliding on the other side of the blue sky, while the humpy quince tries, as it can, to shine brightly (Oh what a conceited grumbler!) like a zenithal sun!
It's Thanksgiving Day here in the U.S. so it's a very appropriate time to thank you for the almost-daily dose of beauty.
It looks good no matter where it came from.
Love those "Vermeer" colors. I, too, am thankful for your paintings that you share with us, Julian.
