#FridayPainting: Henri J. F. Rousseau “The Railway”

Why did you paint a couch in the middle of the jungle?” Rousseau: “Because one has the right to paint one’s dreams.” Henri J.F. Rouseau

Railroads have always been a source and a symbol of adventures and stories. I feel a heady anticipation when I hear the sound of a faraway train whistle.

“I have already been told that I do not belong to my century.” Henri J. F. Rousseau

Trains will always be my preferred way travel for there is a sense of style, elegance – even romance, as if nodding back to a different century
