Art Friday: Views from a window


Art Friday: View from a window

I have no idea, but I love photography and artwork that involves windows. Not sure why I am drawn to scenes like these, perhaps I love to glimpse the world from the safety of a cosy room. Are you like me and like windows? Cats also love windows and will spend hours looking through with no interesting of going outside.  

Please enjoy this collection of "Views from a window".

Sorry - but I just had to include some cats and windows as they go hand-in-hand. Cats love windows as much as me.



Hope you have enjoyed these:) I will leave you with this very cute mouse!

  1. Oh yes, I LOVE windows and the views from them (unless it's in a city and all you see is a brick wall or something)... I love the brightness windows give, too.

  2. I didn't realize it but I like the window scenes too. There is something so tranquil about them. Thank you for sharing this lovely art. I enjoyed this visit to the museum today :)

    1. I also found these very tranquil and serene - I love to sit at my dinning table or my favourite chair in my study and looking at the window and looking at the garden and watching the birds play. Very calming.
