I’ve been dreaming on beaches since I was a tot. 🌴 I’ve been a handful of times in my life and I always await the next time my toes will squish into the sand ☺️ .
Last night I started a beach series ✨ ((many more ocean blues coming soon)) 🙂
Happy painting, everyone!! 🎨

Beautiful fresco painting at the @raashotels in Delwara, India.
Looking down Room 32, you can see two works by Guercino on either side of the door. The artist was the leading Bolognese painter after the death of Guido Reni. His earlier pictures typically combine the chiaroscuro effects of Caravaggio with a charm and softness not usually found in followers of this artist.
On the left hangs 'The Samian Sibyl with a Putto' and on the right you can see 'The Cumaean Sibyl with a Putto'. Both represent two of the twelve pagan sibyls, or seers, who were reputed to have foretold the coming of Christ.
