The Reader -- Frank Weston Benson

I seem to have lost my voice, so I’ll just share this lovely painting with you today. I love how he captured the sunlight.

I will return … soon, I hope.

  1. I see the sunlight reflecting on her hair and her back, umbrella, and her dress. The painting is beautiful and I think you pointed out the most remarkable aspect, his treatment of sunlight. Thank you for sharing.


    1. Until I read your comment, I didn’t think to research this artist. It seems he was famous for his “luminous” paintings, though I guess treatment of light is a common element of Impressionism. Anyway, I am busy reading, though I don’t look nearly as lovely doing it as the woman in this painting. 🙂


    1. I noticed several of us have gone quiet at the same time. Something in the cyber air? 😉

      I’m reading and enjoying it, but railing against those writing RULES again. Or rather against my lack of confidence that made me pay attention to some of them.
