Uncomplicated thoughts: Humble places

“Blessed are they that see beautiful things in humble places
Where other people see nothing…” Pissarro

Camille Pissarro (July 10, 1830 – November 13, 1903) was a French Impressionist painter. His importance resides not only in his visual contributions to Impressionism and Post-Impressionism, but also in his patriarchal standing among his colleagues, particularly Paul Cezanne and Paul Gauguin.

Flutter and nectar

Same first male feasting on a zinnia
