Juan Romero (1932-1996)

Unsure where I've been not to have known the work of Juan Romero before this morning, I will simply express my joy at the discovery.  The timing is perfect, for word came early today and over the weekend of friends in whose lives serious road accidents have played too prominent a part.  Both have survived and will heal but in the meantime, pain and fear and uncertainty.  We know beauty can help relieve those.  Then the oft-mentioned Alice Vegrova shared three of Romero's works.  Quickly Googling, I acknowledge the result:  this seems to be love.   See for yourselves.
All paintings by Juan Romero.
I wish I knew my way around a Blogger template better, for these need to be seen BIG or BIGGER.

Denise - They brought the needed cheer and thrill of discovery yesterday. I always want the photos bigger. Hmmm, perhaps I need to do something about that. xo

These are just beautiful, Marylinn. So glad they offered a little balm this week. xoxo

Melissa - They did ease the day. What amazes me is how little, almost none at all, information is available on this painter. Surprising. xo
