Adoration

I am back from Buddhafield, and will write about it shortly. As I schedule in advance, it is too darn hot, and I hope it is still as I camp. So here is the Adoration of the Magi. More artwork for our delight follows:

Here is Allan Ramsay’s portrait of Lady Susanna Campbell, née Bernard. I am less sure of my old pedantry that the style of “Lady” with her Christian name, as opposed to her husband’s, is only correct for the daughter of an earl.

Here is Charity relieving distress, by Thomas Gainsborough, 1727-1788. Is that the Holy Spirit flying overhead? And what is going on with the man on the stairs?

    • You’re in Edinburgh! I’ve moved three hundred miles South! How was Summer for you in Argentina- I know it stretches from sub-tropical Brazil to close to Antarctica, and is mountainous- where were you?
