Hello everyone! Hope you’re having a lovely holiday weekend!
Check out this picture from the cover of a vintage paperback book on El Greco. When I found it today in my favorite thrift store, I thought I was looking at a Dali painting! It’s so weird.
Somehow the color register was off in the printing. It reminds me of the old hologram photos I had as a kid (the early versions of a GIF).
The painting is “St. Martin and the Beggar,” which is located in the Capela San Jose at Toledo, according to this musty little book (printed in 1967). You never know what you’re going to find at a thrift store.
I should be cooking for brunch tomorrow. But I couldn’t resist blogging…
Have a wonderful Easter!
Hello everyone. Happy Sunday. I’m scrambling like crazy to get brunch together. I can’t find the napkins!! Nevertheless, I wanted to post this comment from Talented Tina Tarnoff. I’m going to try her suggestion after a few glasses of champagne today. Ha!
from T. T. Tarnoff:
” The best things always happen by accident, the picture looks absolutely wonderfuly bizarre. I wonder what El Greco would think of this take on his work. And, yes, it does make you feel a bit dizzy, especially if one has had a happy, wine infused night:). That makes me think that maybe if one is very tipsy the picture somehow comes into focus. Should I try?”0
