My Gallery

I present you here with a series of studies frankly downloaded for my own pleasure but with the permission of the various copyright holders. They are mostly (but by no means all), Christian themes and include the Works of the Masters, lithographs and other visual material, as well as conventional photographs. I hope to add continually to these as time goes by, for my own as well as for your enjoyment. All the thumbnails that you can see are link-connected to larger pictures which carry comments and observations. My comments - the ones concerning art - are purely personal, unacademic and untutored and make no pretence of being otherwise; I share them with you on that basis and on that basis and understanding alone. Some of the accompanying pages are in preparation and some have yet to be started; keep watching - there will always be additions!

These Works will take a minute or two to download - please do be patient.
