Seasons Greetings 2017

Season's Greetings 
to all those who follow 'Making A Mark'
on my blog and/or on Facebook.

Your 'likes', 'follows' and comments are always very much valued wherever you leave them

Wishing you and yours a happy day today and all the very best for the New Year.

Adoration of the Kings (1598) by Jan Brueghel the Elder (1568-1625)
National Gallery, London
This is one of those paintings which is yet another perspective on a very old story and comes complete with wonderful draughtsmanship and painting and a wealth of detail.

PS You can see the original photo on my Facebook Page with a couple of other great paintings of winter.

Thank you to the National Gallery and all other galleries which allow us to photograph paintings.


I'm now having a little break and will be back in the New Year.

  1. This painting is a triumph in composition. I'll have to come back and study it further when I have more time. Merry Christmas, Katherine! You are a marvel with all your fact finding, interesting topics...the list goes one. And I know that I can read your blog and trust everything I read. Kudos!

COMMENTS HAVE BEEN SUSPENDED

There are lots of very silly people who don't understand that Google is not stupid and that links posted to a Blogger comment are:
* NOT LIVE and
* CARRY NO LINK JUICE.
They continue to post spam comments - despite this blog using both word verification and moderation that states very clearly that no spam will be published.

So I've SUSPENDED COMMENTING BY EVERYBODY but me. This allows past comments to still be seen.

Feel free to comment on my Facebook Page when my blog posts are posted there
BUT do note: Spammers on Facebook will always be blocked and reported to Facebook for spamming.

Note: only a member of this blog may post a comment.
