  1. Thanks for keeping up with the painting a day – so nothing for Christmas? I came across Edvard Munch’s ‘Christmas in the Brothel’ on another art blog that made me smile. I have to admit that I struggle a bit with Korovin. Looking at Childe Hassam impressionist paintings of the same time I think Korovin’s work belongs on a soap wrapper by comparison.

    Happy Christmas!

      Happy Christmas to you too. I never even thought about posting something Christmas related.
      Now that I think about it, that Korovin painting does kind of look like it belongs on a soap wrapper. Good call.
