    Did You give Giotto Permission to use your Colors?

    Kirby, a most productive year. Merry Christmas to you and yours. As for comments, I admire Giotto. Gauguin is a bit bizarre but at least, interesting.

    Kirby, I liked the fact that you simply presented the paintings. Leaves lots of space for me to think about Christmas and what it really is. Thank you. I feel like using this as an opportunity to say MERRY CHRISTMAS to you and to all those who read your blog. We are all kindred spirits one way or another. Love, Lydia
