In lands I never saw -- they say
Immortal Alps look down --
Whose bonnets touch the firmament --
Whose sandals touch the town --

Meek at whose everlasting feet
A myriad daisy play --
Which, Sir, are you and which am I
Upon an August day?

Last week's vocabulary challenge was on art vocabulary.

We will discuss it further in Kitely on Friday.

Can you think of any words we should include in the session?

    I think so many words are there which are people don't know about their vocabulary words or synonyms. I don't know about your session but maybe these vocabulary words will be helpful for you.

    Can you guess what painter I'm talking about?

    His brush strokes are so strong that they seem like stripe patterns. The stripe patterns flow and swirl, shaping the subject, a person, a still life, or a landscape, whatever. The colors are quite vivid, especially the use of blue and yellow is distinctive.

    @Yellowtail Vincent van Gogh..right?

    Yes, you're correct!

    And did you know that those colours are very much the true colours of the places he painted in Provence @Yellowtail?
