  1. I like your blog πŸ’œ

    • Hi Chloe, I want to apologize for my delay. Your Liebster Award has been the joy of a humdrum wednesday. I’m grateful. I will not forget your kindness. Thanks a million!

  2. Gorgeous and dreamy artworks. Van Gogh’s whirling paintstrokes shine πŸ™‚

    • You know choose,this delicate watercolor with a methodical composition, is talking about mistery. The almost black area -this colour-taboo for most of aquarellist, the slowly made plants, and the misty and imprecise figures on the circle, all elements are appeasing the issue about sleeping and imagination. Thanks a lot for your comment. You always will be welcomed. XO.

      • Very interesting and inspiring…I am always intrigued about sleep, dreams and imagination. I am a big lover of the Surrealists for that reason. Thank you for inspiring πŸ™‚

      • Hi Donna, what a luck, to have a message from you because it is a chance to say that I embroiled about some answer. I understand your choice for the surrealism, so this always displays something unknown to our mind, through a way and shapes so understandable, because the its topics or issues are not normal. Is so lovely to talk with you, even though the english is not my mother tongue. Thanks for your kindness maybe you should be an adorable person. xo

      • Aw bless you! Surrealism is a wonderful movement. I love dreams and what they can tell us about our conscious lives. Lovely to talk with you too. Thank you for your comments and kindness πŸ™‚

      • Sure. The dreams could be our second life. And also could be an alternative to our effete system. I’m sorry, I’m back from the local polling. Thanks for your answer and have a nice afternoon. xo.

      • Definitely. I have always wondered if there are paralell universes. Also if the human eye is seeing everything there is. Have a great afternoon too πŸ™‚

      • I’m pensive about your words. If I had nightmares you will be guilty (ha, ha) Excuse me this is a joke, I think is interesting open the mind to further. Best wishes!

    • I’m sorry Donna, because in the last answer I mistakenly commented the piece of Blake, Three poets.
      About the the seascape by Van Gogh’s is almost an ocean of calligraphic shapes. Above there is a bunch of points and the waves are so rythmic as a line when someone is writing quickly or is repeating some letters as the ‘m’ for example. The monocolor emphasizes all this. Sometimes I suggest reverse the vision of a work to wake up a new gaze. Pleased to comment.Thanks again.

      • That’s ok…your comment on Blake was equally as inspiring as this πŸ™‚ Van Gogh had a beautiful style and knew how to inject the colour to make the best of his swirling patterns. I never thought to reverse, or even mirror a piece of artwork before – but I must do this. Even when a face looks in the mirror, it appears so different in reverse x

  3. I live by the sea and the town is full of artists, so seascapes can become a bit hackneyed. So thank you for this lovely selection, very inspiring. I particularly like the Singer Sargent!

    • Francesca Oh, how much I appreciate your wise comments. True, sometimes seascapes are very traditional and predictable. Singer Sargent was so expert with watercolor, which is allowed to leave free areas of description and suggest abstract art. With the pencil he was also very fast. I think it’s an excellent artist in the history of ever. This blog try to show the contrariness and variety ways to treat a topic by each artist. I am grateful for the loyalty and support that you give to this blog. Hugs and kisses!

  4. So many favorites in this category!–Meheut, Renoir.

    • Oh Julie, you have an amplified vision about the world of drawing. The shy and trembling lines of Renoir, contrasting with the thick strokes of Meheut. Your gaze is wise and has a manner and style, for every moment, for every feeling or for every leitmotiv. Yes, as it happens in music, maybe we need a harp’s arpeggio but some drums too. Congrats for your sensitivity and thanks so much for your comment. It is an small jewel for this blog. XO.
