It is post-Thanksgiving week, just a little early to start posting Christmas and other holiday works of art. So I am choosing paintings randomly, without any particular theme.

The prolific and  versatile American Impressionist Childe Hassam always offers us a number of possibilities including the work above with the intriguing title Marechal Niel Roses, referring to the type of flowers named, believe it or not, after a French 19th military marshal.
