Sorry for a non-cruise topic but have any of you seen or heard about this guy in Birmingham attempting to count to a million without leaving his house? It's supposed to be for charity. It's day 18 for him. Take a look... strange man

I understand it's for a cause. Still, these types of people really scare me.

He needs a hobby.

I am all for the charity aspect of it though.

IB... I think I just found his new hobby. Let's introduce him to cruising!
I just hope the million number count doesn't take him over the railing, literally.

Nah... don't worry about him going over the railing. He doesn't cruise Carnival. He's a Celebrity guy. He prefers the Milleneum. lol

Hey Bruce,

this is totally off-topic (even this one), but I saw the original of your avatar in the the Hermitage in St. Petersberg; only trouble is I was there with 10,000 other tourists and couldn't get close enough to tell who painted it or who it is. Should have taken the private tour!

Since I won't be going back any time soon I was wondering if you could enlighten me.

Rick

Self-Portrait
Cezanne, Paul.
Oil on canvas pasted on panel. 55.5x45.5 cm
France. Circa 1880/1881
Source of Entry: formerly in the collection of Otto Krebs, Holzdorf.
Transferred from Germany after World War II


This self-portrait, unlike the others, was painted without the use of a mirror. In this painting, CÚzanne made a variation of the portrait of himself done by Pierre-Auguste Renoir. While preserving the dimensions and composition of Renoir's pastel, CÚzanne infused it with a different, more severe spirit. It lacks the rose tones that define the colour scheme of the pastel, using in their place a more prosaic bright ochre. Instead of the soft touches of the pastel chalks that create a homogenized surface, here there are broken, energetic brushstrokes whose dynamic is reinforced by their diagonal direction. Instead of the separate strands of hair in the pastel, there is a dense mass of colour. While Renoir's portrayal is mild, CÚzanne's version is harsh and withdrawn.
