Monday

Renoir was born on this day. He was a liberal.


Renoir Painting.
Taking a break from it all, here's some shit and you're gonna' love it.  On this day in 1841 one of France's greatest painters was born, and that person was Pierre Renoir.  Unlike our president today this guy was great and actually respected woman.  In his old age he painted a lot of nudes and once said, "Woman make life bearable."  Not quite, "Hand me another Tic-Tac as Donald Trump once famously said.

Today's post, however isn't about the Trumper.  No, it's about how sometimes doing what we love is painful but we must continue on; why?  I think of Diane Rehm, the NPR talk show host who had a great talk show, but also, an illness that tried to kill her voice.  She stayed with it.  Renoir was the same, in is later years his hands were so crippled with arthritis that the brushes had to be bandaged to his hands so he could paint. 

Self portrait at a young age.

By the way, his nudes were classy not smut, Christian porn if you will. 

Renoir quote:  " What are paiitngs for, after all, to decorate walls."

"I'll never be a great artist on the grounds that I am not syphilitic, homosexual or insane." 

Have a great week!  Be strong, Truth will prevail.  The revolution is coming.  It's all good.
