  1. I love it!

  2. The colors are amazing!

  3. This is a beautiful piece, even through a screen I feel like I’m in the scene with them. Are you lucky enough to see it hanging somewhere?

  4. Rabia, I just found out what you girls were doing with art this Friday and had to check out the art. You have chosen one of my favorite artists, Franz Marc. As a matter of fact, I give mention of the Der Blaue Reiter Group to which he was a part, in my novel coming out in June. Crazy coincidence.

    • How cool! I actually know very little about him beyond the fact I love this painting! All sorts of funny coincidences turn up when people start posting on the same theme. :D

      • I may find some time this weekend and put something up on this theme even though I posted on Friday. You’re right about coincidences–love it when it happens.

    Simply stunning. Gorgeous choice, Rabia!

  6. FRANZ MARC!! That’s his name! OMG thank you… I’ve been trying to find his stuff for ages but couldn’t remember his name!

    I’m a big surrealist fan, but mostly Dali’s more impressive pieces. The Metamorphosis of Narcissus was my fave for a long time. There’s also a Magritte piece that reverse3s a mermaid, but it’s a dolphin head and human body. Also love Munch’s The Scream.

    • You’re welcome. :)

      I do art appreciation with my kids, but we’re still in the Renaissance period, currently admiring Raphael’s work. It’ll take us a while to get to Dali!

  7. What a lovely splash of color! It’s always a pleasure to see what you’re going to deliver to my Inbox next, and today’s offering didn’t disappoint. :)
    Such a great idea!

    • I’d love to see one of your favorite art works, Kirsten. Feel free to join in and post a link back to you in these comments.

      Also, I’m glad that you look forward to my posts in your Inbox. I can ask for no greater compliment!

  8. That is an intriguing pciture. {SMILE}
