Rembrandt Harmenszoon van Rijn– (1606-1669).
He´s the true genius of the baroque and without any doubt the most important artist of Holland history.
He achieved success young, but his last years were tragic and economic ruin.
He was a master of portraiture and illustration of biblical scenes.
Here some of his most representative works and if you want to learn more, do not hesitate to visit the link above.

Two years ago left us the best Spanish golf player of all time and one of the best in the world history “SEVERIANO BALLESTEROS”.
If you want to know a little more about “Seve”, I advise you to go to the following link and read his biography and his record, is a marvel. I leave here Severiano Ballesteros.
PETER PAUL RUBENS (1577-1640)- The Homer of paint.
He´s just a classic, you never get tired of admiring his works.
You can stand hours an hours looking his paints, and you´ll always discover something new.
“The three Graces”- 1636-1638. Oil on table, 221x 181 cm.
Madrid, National Museum of Prado.
I wish all had the same thought as RUBENS “THE WHOLE WORLD IS MY COUNTRY”. We´ll be more human.
Oil on board. “Alla prima”.
Hi friends. I know it’s late but hey this is a good topic before bed, or for tomorrow, the day I leave you in peace. 😉
When we started to leave the chilhood behind and adolescence begins, our imagination (in a very high percentage) begins to take a back seat.
We hanging us from reality, whatever, poor, fair or good. We try to be and appear serious and consistent with the rules.
And who pays? Our imagination. We left our wonderful imaginary friends, our parallel worlds, and all that our minds freed as children.
But after all, God gave us the habilito to dream, and our imagination moves like a fish in the ocean incide a dream.
It’s our way to evade reality and we can relive those fantastic adventures that we imagined in chilhood.
A simple dream worth 10 good films.
I hope tonight you dreamt to give your mothers a million roses because thanks to our mothers, we can dream of.
CONGRATULATIONS TO ALL THE MOTHERS OF THIS WORLD.
How difficult is to make sense to this life.
Since I was a child, playing, learning, living (in a simple word) was the sense.
Sport was my life, overall soccer, but in that time nobody saw soccer as a way of life, just enjoy the game, who have always loved this sport.
After doing a quick summary, the college, school, military service(Air Base Cuatro Vientos-Madrid), but good memories.
From our birth, we’re a factory of memories, if we don’t capture them, these memories where do they go?
How complicated is everything.
P.S.: I attached you my last work, titled “switchboard”.
Thank you for reading my blog.
Today I bring you another unfinished work, an “still life” with some fruits, a knife, bread, pumpkin basque, etc.
It´s the first time I place the objects to paint. It´s very simple, but to learn is very good.
Thank you for visiting my blog, in Spain have 2 days of vacation, so I hope you understand if I don´t post as usually. (I´ve to work too)
Greetings for all.
