  1. Thanks for noticing the art. I am especially interested in painting and photography and I rack my brain thinking of artists sometimes. Other times it's subjects that I look for and the images come up on Google search. I learn something every time I do a blog. I find beautiful art I have never heard of before!

    Hi, Kumquat, I just want to add my thanks for your blogs and especially for the art you choose. How do you find them? You have the scholarly range of an art history professor.

Kumquat's garden
Rosae Mundi, EDP

The memory of a garden, long ago,
many summers now, the dolls on the porch
and some strawberry jam.
Raspberries. Were there raspberries, too?
Fat and glossy; warming in the sun.

We played in the sprinklers
while the robins danced.
White-hot rays glazed the
bobbing blossoms on the pink tea roses.
I can taste it now;

John Singer Sargent
Serge Lutens-
Vetiver Oriental

Spring rushes forth in this cascade of moss and gold.
A brisk, sparkling tingle brightens the afternoon.
Lazing in the grass with a good book, some fine wine and
charming companions, it might be a perfect day to fly a kite.
Creamy and unisex, this delightful blend is as sensual as it is poetic.
Men and women appreciate one another ; yin and yang.

Thomas Gainsborough-Portrait of a Lady in Blue

Guerlain- L'Heure Bleue
Heliotrope- powdery, cherry almonds,
good enough to eat,
surround one in a joyful cloud.

Cool tones strike wistful notes.
Imagine the days when scent was so precious,
only the wealthy had this luxury;
the tremendous pleasure it gave
in a gray, dreary world.

L’Heure Bleue was created by Jacques Guerlain

Guerlain - Shalimar

Undulating woods layered with dense vanilla;
a chorus of amber throbs throughout.

Named for the gardens of Lahore,
we are transported to ancient times of incense,
golden veils and velvet pillows in a palace of beauty.

Exotic flowers grace the bodies of the fair maidens;
luxuriating in the ancient oils and spices of their
wondrous world.
