Now a detailed look:::






“A Summer Landscape with Harvesters is the largest and most spectacular of De Momper s harvest scenes and was likely part of a series.”


“Roger Berkowitz, museum director, said he fully expects the painting to become a favorite among visitors. “It is a spectacular, dramatic scene with over 70 figures engaged in a variety of intriguing activities of work and rest.”

On a personal note:: I was in Toledo visiting an old friend Tom K. He has been battling colorectal cancer for about three years and is having a “rough” time of it. Pleas keep Tom K. in your prayers. Also, when I got back to Lancaster my good friend Jim G. was rushed to the emergency room.  Please keep Jim G. in your prayers. As I have often said.”All we have is today let’s make the best of it.”… Jim G. came through emergency stomach surgery and is doing as well as can be expected at this time… Prayers Work…and so do surgeons…

I'm sorry about your friends and wish them the best in their struggles. It sometimes seems like we hear something like that about a friend or neighbor every week -- but we live around all senior citizens so I guess it is to be expected.

The Museum looks very interesting; I always learn something when I visit you here.
