For the summer, I am going to be featuring paintings during the week for our viewers to contemplate and enjoy like Boating by French master Edouard Manet. Periodically, I will also be contributing a blog on various subjects/topics in art and artists such as Van Gogh or Monet or even lesser known painters (but interesting!).
