“The Picture of Dorian Gray” by Oscar Wilde

Dear followers, a few days ago, while talking with Sara P. Lorenzo, a good friend and also an excellent psychologist, she recommended me this classic of literature. I have not yet read it, but she gave me the splendid suggestion to publish this post that links reading with painting and drawing. I’m hopeful you will like it.

Horses, riders, carts and donkeys (A tribute)

Hi folks!  These two animals, one very strong, timid and delicate at the same time, as is the Horse, and another enormously resistant and sacrificed, as is the Donkey, have been the ones that have most delivered and served humanity with their work.

However, over the centuries, we have mistreated them with our constant wars. The artists of this post have made a small tribute to them. Thanks so much for your loyalty to this blog!
