  1. I have never heard of him, but it does look very realistic. This is what it looks like around here!

  2. Love your header - and Constable's work is always a joy. We had an exhibition of his work here - and it was his sky shots which won my heart - but I would happily have made room for any of his work.

  17. Using the picture of a fence is pretty sharp. It's also a very attractive fence.

  18. Love that painting. My grandparents had a copy of a Constable, darkened with age, which I always found very calming when I was a child. I just liked to sit and gaze at it - to my grandfather's amusement. How wonderful for you to see an original!!
