Hans Heysen - The South Coast, Tubby the Tuba, John Donne - A Lame Beggar

Another lovely landscape painting by Hans Heysen.  I love the blues and turquoise in the water and the contrasting lights and darks in the sharp rocks in the foreground of this painting titled, "The South Coast".  This scene appears to be viewed from a lofty height because of the size of the animals grazing on the nearest plateau.  The painting is  69.7 x 90 cm which is just over 27x35 inches or about 2 feet by 3 feet.  I'd love to see the original!  There are so many details I want to look at more closely.

The South Coast (Oil on Canvas by Hans Heysen)

This weeks piece of music Tubby the Tuba, is a fun cartoon that introduces several instruments from the orchestra focusing on a Tuba named Tubby. You can watch a really old version of it here.

Today's poem by John Donne is just two lines long - a play on words....

      A Lame Beggar

I am unable, yonder beggar cries,
To stand, or move; if he say true, he lies.
