I think the title refers to Charles V, Holy Roman Emperor. It's an adorable and gorgeous painting even if you don't know who he is! :)

Happy New Year! And happy anniversary to this blog! 

I started this blog January 1st 2010 to keep track of my favorite paintings and share them with others. There are now 365 paintings on this blog, one for every day of the year. 

I won't be posting daily in 2011, but I'll try to post any interesting paintings I find! Feel free to re-experience this blog by starting at the beginning and looking at each day's painting from last year! ;) I will still update this blog and A True Word occasionally, just not every day.

I'm so glad I could share all these paintings with you, my readers around the world! :)

And a quick note about me, since some of you have been curious: My name is Rosemary, I just turned 16 in December, my favorite artist is Edward Burne-Jones, I love art, I love poetry, I love to read, I love to draw, I love crafts, and I love talking to my readers, so feel free to get in touch! :)
