Blind man's bluff

This painting is inspired by the beautiful work of Fragonard,
a French painter from the 18th century

This game Blind man's bluff was very popular in Europe a couple hundred years ago

 The girl is about to fall and the boy is ready to catch her

 The cat adds a comic note

 He seems to say: “Is she or is she not?”

Painted in a classical realism style in plein air 
by Dominique Amendola

Sweetness Of Life

Yet another painting by Dreama

Charismatic charm of Robert Finale’s paintings

Using rich colors and textures,

Finale has developed

his own rich vocabulary in a painting

Inspired to inspire

I live in Borneo island ( third largest in the world )
and I am a hobbyist photographer

I love using photos to show a situation or depict a mood
My photo-blog is more photos than anything else
and I hope that these photos would uplift the mood
and invoke some joy for some people

I create positive images from photos and paintings
( could be done by others )
which I selected to awe or impress people

There are images on my blog from myself
and there many from others

What or who inspires me?
Too many to name, I would say many great photographers and artists

Corner Cafe in Roma

I saw this painting by Dreama Perry
Quoting her
" Some days you're just notin the mood to cook
Especially on a gorgeous Italian summer day
What to do?
I guess you just call your friends and decide on a gathering place
How 'bout the cafe on the corner of Via di Santa Maria?
Yeah....that'll work
I just hope there are enough seats "
