This is great news. I was waiting for the results, on tenterhooks, all day. I kind of knew he would win, but you can never be sure.

Andrew Hosmer will be a GREAT MAYOR. Just what the doctor ordered for Laconia. Laconia will enjoy a renaissance under Andrew’s benevolent leadership.

I don’t live in Laconia, but I am sure glad for those that do. Life will be better with Andrew Hosmer.

Rejoice. A great day for Laconia.

He is genuinely good man.

Did I already mention that I was happy?

I have been a long-term subscriber to this Facebook page:

Consequently, I am rewarded each day with quite a few examples of art that I have never seen before. I always try to stop and study. Invariably, alas, I am short of time to research the artists as much as I would like.

The Kate Bunce painting, at top, however, stopped me in my tracks. Struck a chord. I found the color, the detail and composition very pleasing. It could have been the work of a Renaissance great! Then I saw she was British. So, I made a note of her name. I then went back tonight to look her up.

I wanted to share her with you. Yes, she is not unique but she sure has a je ne sais quoi touch.

Indubitably one of my favorite artists of all time and across all genres. He was magical. In my book one of five GIANTS of the Renaissance, the other four being: Michelangelo, TitianLeonardo da Vinci and Raphael.

His paintings are so timeless and mesmerizing. What a talent?

What an age that was. All these great artist, all in Italy, more or less at the same time.

Just spare a thought. He died over 500 year ago. 500 years!
