Merry Christmas, Madame Monet!

Merry Christmas Madame Monet
I have just mounted the Christmas Tree in my gallery´s niche bar… I know, in many countries, one shouldn´t put it up before Christmas Eve, but well, I am in Spain, and here in Spain we do what we want with Christmas trees, the traditions having been above all imported by the many foreigners living here. And anyway, I am an artist, and I am claiming here my artistic freedom to have my Christmas tree blinking and flashing whenever I like!

I received a beautiful comment from none other than Madame Monet, this morning:

“… I really LOVED this look into your gallery! This looks like a place I’d love to visit (and have a glass of wine while looking at the paintings)…”

So I decided to inaugurate my Christmas Tree by toasting her with a glass of wine:

Tchin Tchin, Madame Monet, and Merry Christmas!

And of course: Merry Christmas to everybody here!

    Oh how exciting! Your pictures bring me right into the room with you and this wonderful event. I want to buy all your paintings, all 100 or so of them. How much would that cost? Oh well, at least I can eat them up with my eyes, and I will drink a glass of wine tonight and pretend I was there meeting your handsome Kev and talking Norwegian!

    As I said I love biographies because they give me a hint of what is going on inside an artist. However I also love pictures too because they are the truth and speak to me and linger with me long after I have seen them, especially when the subject is of great personal interest to me.

    Very charming picture of yours.

    “Funny! But which artist creates then? The bad one?”

    There is no bad one. The artwork has different levels of force in its power. The power of the greatest art is the power to shake us into seeing things differently. After that force is experienced by us, we don’t look at a face, a color, a sky, a body, in quite the same way again. We come up with new sight: in-sight.

    The weak artwork fails to get us to apprehend the world differently.It is about decor or prettiness. It lacks the force, the need, the passion, the bliss of the strong artist. So there is no bad artist or bad artwork.

    “Every artist thinks she’s Rembrandt”, Picasso once joked.

    Hi Mr. X, nice to see you here again and thankyou for your kind compliment! I am happy that this philosophical discussion is starting again here! Unfortunately I can’t reply right now, I am leaving to mount an exhibition in the south of Spain, but I will be come back to your comment as soon as I come back to my computer, in about one week.
    Have a nice time in the meanwhile, and thanks again!

    Olá, Miki! I’m at work and just took a quick look at your blog.
    The picture of your gallery is lovely.
    I’ll navigate around it more carefully later at home.
    Well, I post too but it’s not a blog like you and Kevin have. It’s more like a personal diary in the blogosphere space. Even when stupid things come out it helps me to organize my mind and relax.
    Abraços do Brasil!

    Your gallery is like a tapestry of deep colors. I agree with Madame Monet and would want to visit it, too, since it looks so warm and inviting (not at all like some galleries where you almost feel like breathing isn’t allowed).

    Oh, and Merry Christmas! 😀
