    Do it over in landscape and get closer. I’m not paying by the hour for dead space.

    “Now look what you’ve done, we could’ve had a nice close up at the foot of the stair, but you had to be one step above me.”

    “Me, so I was up ONE step, then YOU went up TWO more just to be taller.”

    Actually, the painting is unfinished. The artist intended to put blurred versions of the same image on either side, but he was distracted by a shiny object.

    To his shocked amazement, after his shower Pieter found his clothes taken away. He took a peek out the bathhouse door. Yes, they were lurking there, members of the fraternity hazing committee, waiting for him to come out.

    As a pledge he had to do some weird stunts, but if he were caught now this could get him expelled from University. “The Dutch Masters” — hah! They way they baited people … they should add that word to their fraternity name!

    Fun fact: Dutch houses are as narrow as they are because they were taxed on the basis of frontage.

    And Curly shouted to Larry and Moe, “Look, my head and hat can fit between these two pillars!” and much hilarity ensued.

    The painting was supposed to be of the column, but the Three Musketeers just had to photobomb it.

    Again, a larger strip image is shown by (Ctrl- or right-) clicking the image in Mr. Melcher’s MASTERPIECE #3194 (September 27, 2023) blog entry, accessible by the Check out the blog! box after the last comment, and using the dropdown menu (even larger, if you trim what’s after .png from the URL). I have added a comment there (awaiting Mr. Melcher’s approval) pointing to info about this artist I used to point to here. Only work by him used here so far.

    How many steps have we taken, going up and down these stairs?

    I don’t know … I lost count.

    Somebody should invent a device to count the steps for us.
