Thanks to Chris who is taking some time to help me jazz up the appearance of the ol' blog, here. I have no idea how to do the techie stuff, and she's a great help.
The painting in my header is The Annunciation by Henry Tanner. A friend of mine posted a photo of it in a website I sometimes visit, and I fell in love with it. I love the way Tanner doesn't try to anthropomorphize the Angel, but lets him stand as a being of brilliant Light. And Mary looks so young, so baffled by this amazing and unexpected event. Even the rumpled rug appeals to my imagination.
Watch in coming weeks for more redecorating advances.
