lots of beauty and goodness in the world



It's fun to discover images of paintings done by Bob Dylan --










...and then it was also fun to discover that another American singer, Tony Bennett,





also is a painter:










__________________ Tony Bennett:  signature song, "I Left My Heart In San Francisco" -- known for his recordings and performances of traditional pop standards, big band, show tunes, and jazz. 


At age 89, he continues singing and painting.  According to The New Yorker, "three of his paintings are part of the permanent collection of the Smithsonian Institution.  Over the years he has been commissioned by


Givenchy,


the United Nations,


the Kentucky Derby,


and the New Orleans Jazz Festival


to create images...."
