Welcome to a feast of  colour and  variety!

Today Saturday  30th May 2020

Today's  painting is Geometry Lesson No 1

Today's  Tune-a-Day is No 6  Waltz by Weber

There are four galleries for the paintings shown on the YouTube music videos posted during the pandemic. There's  a new tune and picture for each day from March 23rd 2020.

1. The Tune a Day Gallery  Numbers 1 -20

2. Tune a Day Gallery Numbers 21 - 40

3. Tune a Day Gallery Numbers 41 - 60

4. Tune a Day Gallery Numbers 61 -80

In these four  galleries the paintings  can be seen more clearly than on the YouTube music videos labelled Tune a Day.   The cellist is Julian Carlick, Ilfra's husband. Ilfra plays the piano, but she isn't painting at the same time.  Each tune is between 2 and 5 minutes.  To  go directly to the music for each painting in the Tune-a-Day Galleries,  double click  on the image then in its  description click on the pale text. 

The music videos were initially posted for friends but we welcome all friends of friends too, and hope both the pictures and the music will add to your enjoyment during these difficult times. We don't know yet how long we will continue to post music and pictures but we have lots of both!

   Click here for the Lainston Gallery.  The show, called Images and Quotes,  was held at Lainston, the home of Ilfra's studio,  in July 2019. Some of the paintings have been moved to the Tune a Day galleries. If you search through you will find they are the ones with quotes and image descriptions.
