Something beautiful for the first day of November

"Murnau Street With Women" 1908
Wassily Kandinsky

This painting (can you see some of the obvious homage he pays to Van Gogh?) makes me HAPPY. If I ever find a large poster of it somewhere, I will buy it and frame it and put it in my house.

Ever seen the stupid commercial about the couple who comes to the high-falutin' architect and ask him to design a house around this dumb-looking faucet they've picked out? Well, if they had come to ME with a copy of this painting and asked me to design a house around IT, I think I could.
