Can't seem to get the original painting @Mi-Amigo 
Is this it ?
It's very lively with people enjoying themselves.

Re: Art

Yesterday in the i newspaper, there was a feature on Gaugin

Farming in Brittany

 

 

Breton Landscape

 

Landscape of Brittany

 

I can't seem to find one lovely picture which was featured in the newspaper article - it was of a girl in a purple dress eating a piece of fruit

 

Gaugin is a painter I don't really know, but upon perusing his pictures on the web, he's underated.

Re: Art

I love the Farming In Brittany picture @WispaRed7 

To be honest I think Gaugin is a master at landscapes, I much prefer those to his portaits

I posted the picture because I like landscape and those Autumn colours ... it's a sort of up-to-date Haywain ... if I may say so 

I prefer landscapes to portraits ... I'd rather have photos of people

Hello @TallTrees ... ... ... thank you for your comments

I absolutely love love love colour ... no, my house has accent colour ... but ... it has been commented that I wear colourful clothes, which I do ... although ... not like my x-husband said 'I look like something out of Mothercare' ... most of my lads clothes came from there and the buggy

 

WHAT IS ART ?

 

I have been photographing things about my home ... not satisfied with the results yet

Ashley Jackson, small limited print = washing drying on a line in the wind

A watercolour print of York = I lived there for a while, not long enough Smiley Sad 

3 x 1000 piece jigsaws framed = pictures of paintings

1 x 500 piece of a child-like print jigsaw, a village in the landscape ... did the jigsaw in one evening

Most of all ... an original watercolour over the mantelpiece in my living room ... ... ... a chap visited my home in then Fleckney towards Christmas and I treated myself to a semi-abstract style derelict mill in the landscape = the nice elderly man then framed it ... he gave me a little book on Renoir because I reminded him of the woman on the cover of the book = lovely smiling

 

Photos to follow ... sometime

 

@Seahorse you are instrumental in me being op (orginal poster) in this thread ... ... ... how are you and your artwork ?
