Are we to paint what’s on the face, what’s inside the face, or what’s behind it?

  1. I’m personally not a fan of Picaso’s art style, however, I adore his quotes.
    This is definitely one of my favorites ❤

    Continue to paint with your words(:

      This quote has so much to ponder upon especially when you observe the sea of faces all around.

      Thank you for bringing that ❤ in here — really appreciate it!
      🙂

    Dear Thou-who-makest-me-to-think,

    This one is really running around in my head. (From the comments, I see I’m not the only one with the thinking cap on. I like the thoughts!)

    To think or not to think, that is the question … I think, therefore I shan’t!

    🙂 🙂

    P.S. – this is a really good one. Thanks you!

    Hmmm. good question. I tend to think of tears of a clown. There’s a smile on the face, but deep inside they are crying.

    We are all many layers of paint. Each with it’s own colour and texture. Each complimenting each other. Yours is a beautiful rainbow that always has a pot of gold at the end in the shape of lovely words.

    Take care Alan.

      Oh another kind hearted artist. Thank you so much Alan for adding colors to my life. We are all rainbows each time we add beauty to somebody else life.
      🙂

    Well in his case, he managed to do all three!(and all at once) What an artist eh 🙂

      Lynda you’re the artist here so you can see the things that the artist see; that I don’t see! I appreciated Picasso’s ingenuity and his paintings made me wonder, “Who is unstable, the subject or the painter?”

      Now that I hear it from you, that he managed to capture all three dimensions then it explains why there seems to be multiple personalities in each painting.

      Thank you Lynda now I can see Picasso’s work differently.
      🙂

    You are making us think again, Rea Sunshine! Maybe only God could paint what’s inside and behind the face? We could do self-portraits and paint what we see inside ourselves, or someone else could paint what they think is inside of our face and behind it . . .but I think I’d like His version better! 🙂 God bless you and all that is inside and outside of you!

    That’s a great question…each would probably be a different face…except for those holy people whose faces would all be one and the same. 🙂 Something I strive for everyday. 🙂
