Monet. …or is it Manet? Matisse? Manicotti!? No, that’s pasta. I like pasta but it does not compose music well. My sister had a great recipe for manicotti primavera. Fresh veggies and just a bit of brandy in the sauce. Wish I had gotten a copy from her. Now don’t get me wrong; I ain’t no slouch when it comes to pasta dishes. It’s just that my specialty is more toward the creamy sauces. I still like a red with the creamy sauces; cuts through the mouthfeel and gives your tongue a break. Never been fond of whites anyway. I could never tell which were dry–what I prefer–and which were sweet. Ick.
@mossygreen Have you heard of rg_bunny1? I finally got on Instagram, after only checking it out as a lurker, so I could see his (their?) account. I only follow 5 people.
rg-b1 posts really marvelous images - paintings, photos, some videos. Evidently their identity is a mystery. @F00l, seems like you’d be intrigued by it too.
@f00l@mossygreen Did you follow this account? I can’t see it anymore, but don’t know if it’s been deleted, or if I’ve been blocked. I’m new to Instagram, so not familiar with the way it works. But it looks to me like the account is just gone!
Cool! I have a print of this and know exactly where this scene is in the French Quarter. I could kick myself for not buying his work when he sold it on the walls of local pizza joints and bars back in the 80s.
Actually the guy who painted the rooms in my house when we first got it. He was clean, neat, reasonably priced! Unfortunately he was on the old side and would be in his 90’s now. Oh well, we painted before and we can paint again.
Van Gogh is my second.
