Carnation, Lily, Lily, Rose
While in London, I saw "Carnation, Lily, Lily, Rose" by Sargent, which was....well absolutely stunning! My heart just skipped a beat.
One of these (obviously) is a fake reproduction, plucked from somewhere on the internet, for people who want an original painting in their house...
I can now attest to the often heard statement, that it really pays of, to see paintings in real life, instead of from a picture. It's the same with the above painting. The real painting, compared to this picture, is for example much more turcoise/blue and with VERY intense colours.
As of today I'm also for the first time displaying some of my own paintings at an exposition in Utrecht. And I'm really anxious to see if I can sell a few. One of these paintings I've never put on this blog before, so I'll try to do that soon.
