Sunday Matinée

“Life is short, but art is forever” – what a perfect motto to use this week. It is painted onto the wall of the Hall of Honour at Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam.


I took some consolation, just looking at some pictures of landscape artwork I took in Amsterdam recently. I don’t know, but after all the depressing days last week, this calmed me down a little. Just hope, you like the paintings, too.

  1. Favorites are the Pollard Willow and the Lighthouse, like the bold brush strokes, the play of light and shadow. Art is definitely sunshine in dark times. Thanks for sharing. 🙂
