To love a painting is to feel that this presence is… not an object but a voice.

Woman Bathing Her Feet in a Brook
I have not featured much of Pissarro’s work; I am not sure why, as he is an artist, whom I truly admire and appreciate, both in technique and style. The subtlety of the colors, shadow, and reflections are exquisite in this work, as is the subject.
This painting creates a sense wonderment, a quality which I so enjoy in art; I wonder where the stream leads, where she is coming from, why she has decided to sit and rest, and as almost always, I wonder about her thoughts.
Art can never exist without naked beauty displaced.
