Some art for Wednesday: “Look at nature, work independently, and solve your own problems.”*
Monday was the birthday of Winslow Homer (February 24, 1836 – September 29, 1910) whom readers of this blog know has always been one of my favorite artists.

Our mother was also a great admirer of Homer and we were introduced to his art at an early and impressionable age. What is not to like?
Here are a few of my favorites.

For more pictures, here is a good slideshow from the National Gallery of Art.
