I got to see him a couple years ago in a concert of Two Cellos. Amazing talents.
And another of my favorites — Adagio
Good Friday Remembrance
My great-grandmother’s grandfather was an artist. Not sure when he was born, but her mother was born in 1837 in Braunschweig.
On the back of the drawing is a tempera (?) painting of the Wetterhorn alp from the glacier-filled valley at Grindelwald.
Have a blessed Easter.

Anyone want to search in Denmark?
“Danish artist Thomas Dambo creates larger than life sculptures hidden around his hometown of Copenhagen.
His sculptures require secret poems and clues in order to locate them. He says each has its own treasure map or poem engraved into stone to steer people onto unfamiliar paths where they’ll discover them.”
