Twas the night before Christmas, and all through the house . . . . Claudia is wrapping presents and can’t find the Scotch tape! 😆
So Christmas has almost arrived and it doesn’t look like it will be a white one in NY. The only place it’s snowing is on here on the blog! My family will gather at Mom’s house tomorrow and we’re all looking forward to it, especially my niece 🙂
I have a Christmas image for this blog post that I hope you all enjoy. Giorgio Vasari is well-known mainly as the first art historian/biographer and for writing the seminal book The Lives of the Artists. Vasari was also an architect, painter, and good friend and admirer of the powerful Medici clan. The guy who coined the term “Renaissance” was himself a true Renaissance man.
Although painting brought Vasari less success than his other endeavors, I thought this work The Nativity With the Adoration of the Shepherds from 1571 was quite impressive.
Peace, joy, and blessings to each and every one of you. Have a wonderful weekend, and may love fill your hearts, now and forever . . .
See you soon!
