    But, you are correct about the mind. I could think myself into an orgasm. Hands free. Came in "handy". Smiles.

    Sure sas-ling ..... ENJOY !!

    ‘Humming around
    Finding my sound.
    Looking for naught
    Finding a … thought J


    Here’s a very interesting female surrealist with paintigs almost pulling you into them J
    Remedios Varo(Uranga), 1908-1963 born in Spain and dead in Mexico.

    She’s a bit more into technical drawings as her father, a hydraulic engineer taught her well, and she’s very precise and esthetical J
    Later on she frequented the art academy, and is very well educated.

    She’s imaginative and phantasy-fantastic, takes up the surrealists' interest with dreaming, symbolism, and the subconscious.
    See here how elegant - a poetress surely could make a delicious poem out of such picture.

    A friend of Leonora Carrington from Paris – and definitely in Mexico, where all those forced to flee from the nazists met again.
    Try imagining the amount of brush stroke it has taken to create such painting – she surely is in a class of her own J

    (More Remedios Varo tomorrow)

    And as dessert we’ll have a matching little poem by the likewise gifted – and likewise esthetic Emily Dickinson, 1830-1886.

    Blazing in gold and quenching in purple,
    Leaping like leopards to the sky,
    Then at the feet of the old horizon
    Laying her spotted face, to die.

    Stooping as low as the kitchen window,
    Touching the roof and tinting the barn,
    Kissing her bonnet to the meadow,
    And the juggler of day is gone!

    That's all for today - folks !!

    ‘Painter - painter come and see :
    A work of art, a bumblebee.
    Reduce it now,
    to two dimensions
    minus sound and animation,
    add a little funny twist,
    and you’ll be known as alchemist.’

    brought up as a catholic, developed an interest in mysticism, hermeticism, alchemy, sufism etc.
    One thing in common for those is, that what they convey is a cover for/symbol on something else.
    The esoteric (things which can only be said under four eyes between two initiates) is hidden behind the exoteric (things which can be published for the broader public).
    Those fields normally have the nature, the firmament, the celestial bodies, earthly symbols – or their material allegories as subjects, but Remedios manage to fish the mystic up from her dreaming waters

    Even she’s painting those phantastic phantasmagorian pictures, she’s very nice about it, and surely has used her intellect as a sieve for the dreams.
    They're elaborated in abstractions of first, and second degree – it has demanded a lot of thoughts, and work.
    A serious perfectionist – a hard life.

    We need some counterbalance here, a poem down to earth J:
    ‘I eat my peas with honey,
    I've done it all my life.
    It makes the peas taste funny,
    But keeps them on the knife.


    Like it ??

    This artist doesn't grab my interest. At least the works here don't. What about you, bobo?
    Fun poem. My granddaughter eats peas frozen, right out of the bag. I love cooking for her. Ha!
    Thanks for morning post, kiddo. Sas

    She might not be easy to love – but has an aim with her disciplined work, which come out as very, very interesting J
    She’s shielding her private person.
    Remember, she’s been unwanted under Franco, and wanted by the nazists - with everything such short words implies.
    It’s understandable if she’s not keen on showing more of herself to the cruel world – but she’s nevertheless giving her professionalism.

    Thanks for background, bobo. My appreciation for art has no connection with the artist. But, I believe you are correct that she was disciplined, and private; too much so, and consequently her work lacks passion, to me, anyway.

    Kinda like the Humpty Dumpty poem. I wanna know what drove that egg to sit on a damn wall.
