Just returned from the land of the Dutch. During the visit my daughter purchased a massive pedal harp, and we met Jan Anne for a very nice evening meal and merry chat.

Here she is immersed in the harp music,

I am very impressed, esp the altar background decoration in the form or a vulva...

... greetings from https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Georgia_O%27Keeffe?
Thanks Frank. It's very interesting work indeed and work of O'Keeffe also crossed my mind. 

The nun who did the work on the carpet was also a teacher on the Higher Textile School, and had a lot of experience with working of all kind of different textures. She said about this work. "Everybody is entitled to see that what they want to see, for me, it's a kind of gate. "

On  the return leg  of the Harp Purchase trip to the Netherlands,  my daughter and I visited the Outsider Art Museum in Amsterdam. Amongst many expressive works of Finnish artisans, this "Fantasy Bird" caught my attention.

Nice one, Birna.  What kind of music does she expert in?

The harp, in addition to its beautufully dreamlike sound, should be the best test object to check out bokeh rendition and LoCA.   :D

Was it the Harp tones that made your camera so tearful?? Or can it be just dew? Or, you have bought the mist filter from Lee and are crazy about its effect and you’re now overdoing every picture by it??
