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

 School Time


Winslow Homer

Are you surprised?   I was.  It is not that I only expect seascapes from Winslow Homer, but I think of his work as being more dramatic and in a bolder pallet.   Never-the-less, this does capture a perfect autumn day, in New England.

I also imagine it may make more than a few of us nostalgic, in these days of on-line classes and home schooling.

The painting lives at the National Gallery, in Washington, D.C.; and yes I photographed it before the pandemic.


Art can never exist without naked beauty displaced.

~ William Blake ~
