  1. Lovely post. My favourite this time is:
    By Pontormo – An angel holding his garments
    🙂

    • Dear Rainee, your choice is excellent. The colour of the garments, looks almost as golden and the belt fitting his paunch, evokes a very human angel. The pencil and the watercolour strokes make a master work. I’m grateful for stopping by. Thanks so much for your skilled option. Best wishes. xoxo

  2. This is a wonderful blog. I’ll be back.
