  1. Such marvellous chiaroscuro defining the forms!

    And those little cherubs out to be careful, playing like that oblivious right next to some fearsome wild beasts.


  2. I love Peter Paul Rubens. I remember last year’s tribute. It was nice to visit it again. It’s amazing another year has come and gone.

  3. I am celebrating with you, Marina. I enjoyed going back to your first post which provided an brilliant overview of Peter Paul Rubens artwork.
