  1. Como sempre de uma sutileza para o que é Belo! Lindo demais esse post. 🙂 🙂

    • Queridisima Mirna muchas gracias. Tu eres muy importante para la continuidad de este blog. Cuando mi animo decae pienso en tus palabras y en tus sombreros y me recupero. Un abrazo muy largo. Obrigado.

      • Você tem uma identificação muito grande para com o Belo e como se voces fossem grandes amigos ! Belas maneiras, belas palavras, belos sketchs, paintings….Juntando tudo isso dá você!

      • Mirna: sinceramente creo que la mitad de la belleza está en ti misma. ‘50% in the eyes of the beholder’. For that reason all this belongs to you too. Thanks so much, have a nice night and a happy week start.

  2. Beautiful, all. The Boudin painting is mesmerising.

  3. Bellisimas imágenes!! Hacia bastante que no me pasaba por aqui, tengo que ponerme al día 🙂
    PD: Voy a empezar a comentarte yo también en inglés jajaja.

    My best wishes!! 😀

  4. I love these scenes of everyday things we do, elevated into art. They remind me to really notice what’s happening around me, and to see everything as something more than ordinary. And I love your brush. 😀

    • Hi dear, in my opinion, your thought is supreme. Giving love for everything that is around us, seems almost an essence of an asiatic religion.
      This blog have sense thanks to reflections as the yours. Thanks a million for your visit and comment. My deference to you.

  5. Thanks so much for showing us the pictures of different interpretations of working… I enjoyed to find the speciality of some interesting pictures like “Father and son asking for alms…” When I asked a girl last time what she wants to do, when she ´s growing up, she answered: “Oh, I want to be a Harzer! My parents are some and they and I are living pretty good!” I´was very shocked… (In Germany the social program for the people with no work ist called “Hartz IV”).

    • I apologize for my delay. The sketch that you referred was made by Isidre Nonell depicting an scene of poorness during the last quarter of 19th century in Barcelona, my city, too.
      This author was worried for some disfavored groups of people. He often also had the gypsies as a normal motif for his works. He died when he was 39 years old with a typhoid fever.
      I understand what you say, the meaning of your irony but the same current capitalism’s egoism arrives to conclusion that is more expensive the A option to marginalize some people with the delinquency, sanitation and most other social troubles, than the option B assigning them some social economical helps. I know enough what happens in the courts, and behind a lot of cases, there are severe social inequalities.
      Our countries appertain to called first world because we avoid that kind of people may be enslaved as centuries before or in the Third World.
      In my opinion we must to have a minimun of Ethics, but this is only a site dedicated to the sketch and drawing.
      Thanks so much for your comment. Best wishes!

  6. Thank you very much for your long answer. I agree to your opinion. It was just one thought I had, while watching the picture… Have a wonderful week, Nessy
