Hands and Rembrandt

Andrew Wyeth quote on my hands.  ‘One’s art goes as far and as deep as one’s love goes.’  Very true.  Pictured here I’m holding a little terracotta pot which is a replica of the pots Rembrandt used.  We visited his five story home in Amsterdam, now a museum, which was a true delight.  I use my little pots for paint mixing and charcoal holding as I’ve never been one to buy something and let it sit to preserve it.  I think Rembrandt would have appreciated my choice. 

I worked hard to get the above shot; below is a candid one I took so you could see his initial on the side, and my lovely hammer, of course.

I think my little pot gets better with each use.  Anyway, there you have it!  Have a great day!
