THE WEEKEND IN BLACK AND WHITE : Nadezda Petrovic


This statue of painter Nadezda Petrovic stands in a park near my home downtown. Nadezda was a fauvist and impressionist painter, born in 1873. Her works appear in many museums in Serbia, and her likeness has also  been featured on Serbian postage stamps.

During the Balkan Wars, she volunteered as a nurse and was later awarded a Medal for Bravery and an Order of the Red Cross.

SLEEPING IT OFF

 Seems like this holiday gnome has had one long season....too much holiday cheer. I'll check and see if he's still there tomorrow....
