While my original oil painting “Mini-Helmet Commemorative edition” remains in my collection, it has been selling in print format in various sizes on Fine Art America. Here is a link to the latest sale.
There is only one thing better than spending time in an art museum, and that is visiting a great country house in England. Blenheim is one of the greatest of the great country houses and a visit there is an extraordinary experience on many levels. Natural beauty, history, architectural delights and fine art abound! Blenheim was built in the Early 1700s as a gift from Queen Anne and a grateful nation to John Churchill, after he lead his British troops to victory against the hated French in the battle of Blenheim (on German soil). By the way, “Blenheim” – as in the battle of – is pronounced just how it looks “Blen-Hime”. While the great country house named after it “Blenheim Palace” is pronounced “Blen-NIM”. Why? I a not certain, but below are some shots, to whet your appetite for the next few posts. Cheers!
