I need to give a bit of an introduction about my five things today.
You might know the lovely Barbara from Coastal Ripples. She is running a monthly link up called Paint Monthly. The idea being to link in from the first of the month to share a painting or group of paintings with others.
I was thinking about what paintings I might have to share this month, and the ones that I really want to share need me to take some better photos so I will save them for another time. Instead I went back looking in my photo archive to see what else I had.
Not long after I started blogging we went on a wonderful holiday to Sorrento and we visited Herculaneum - which I cannot recommend highly enough. I thought that many of you would not have been reading my blog back then, it seemed like a good opportunity to revisit some paintings from that visit.
So here are five for this week. Wall paintings - frescoes - from Herculaneum. I don't have any information to impart about them, so just enjoy looking!
Aren't the incredible! To think that they were buried by a volcano and then excavated and are still as wonderful as this after all the years they were underground. It really astounds me.
I hope you enjoyed seeing them.
Thank you for joining Five On Friday, for making it what is and for going and visiting others. I appreciate you so much for that!
I hope you have a good weekend whatever you are doing - or not! Here it will be housework for me and DIY for Hubby and I really do want to catch up on some reading and try to work more to get my tapestry finished. It needs to be done!
Thank you - as always! - for joining in and for going to read others posts.
