    I am so completely enthralled and intrigued by what I have seen here – and clearly discovered on your space.

    Thank you.

    These paintings resonate with me – and quite frankly, for as strange as this may sound, the order and appearance seem to be telling me a story that is resonating in my life.

    If you would be so kind, I 1) am going to reblog this on my space and 2) was wondering if I could perhaps use some of these images, perhaps a later date, for my own posts?

    Please let me know.

    • Hey, it’s great that you’re interested! Of course use it in any way you like, of course the images aren’t mine anyway and order should not matter too much. Except a few original texts this blog is about re-using & putting works of art into new contexts, so I’m glad you’d like to do that yourself.
      On another note, this page is only started, I put some paintings that I’d used in the latest posts, as it takes time to figure out the whole list, but hopefully I’ll soon be able to add more to at least get to 100.
      Thank you too!
      Have a fine day.

        Thanks for the reply – partial lists are great too – and thanks – I figured that you had “borrowed” the images from internet sources, but was feeling a bit lazy to wander off and re-source on my own – so thank you.

        I really enjoy your space – interesting, curious and stimulating – all great things in my book of life.

      • thanks, it’s just one big experiment and I have some ideas where to go next with it, so I hope it won’t die too soon. You should visit wikipaintings,com it’s probably the best source for paintings, and artsy.net is nice too

      • Pat(ricia) says:

        thanks for the tips 🙂
