Detail from "Still-Life with Pipe an Jug" c. 1737 Oil on canvas, 32,5 x 40 cm Musée du Louvre, Paris
Yesterday, Nov. 2, was the birthday of the great French painter Jean Baptiste Siméon Chardin (1699). Please look at his work. It will slow you way down. Slow enough to get a longer, albeit dim view, of the remaining span of your days and what your eyes and heart are truly for: Seeing and Feeling. As artists, I believe, we have an obligation to help people see and feel (and sell stuff, alas!).
"The Canary" 1750-51 Oil on canvas, 50 x 43 cm Musée du Louvre, Paris
