collecting colours over a cup of coffee...

If you are a lover of printed words, you would know how much of your time is taken by books alone. Then one day, sooner or later, you discover a huge vacuum within that you know next to nothing about other art forms. This blog is an attempt to fulfil one such lacunae in the art of painting. We intend to look up a random painting and upload it with a link here every day whilst having our daily cuppa coffee. In this way at least we hope to be better acquainted with colours, colourers and the schools than what we are now.If you wish to be a part, you know where to shout.
Find lost art

We shall be on our summer break for two weeks. We shall resume assorting again on the ninth day of June. For now we are leaving you with an ancient wisdom called Time to Stop:

Time To Stop

There are times
going to museums
makes you see

pointilliste anthills,

Picasso faces on milkmen
framed in the living room

a violet shadow
all around a dead
or dying cow
and you come
back at night to see
how it looks
under the gaslight,

and after an accident,
looks remarkably
like fresh paint.

Then it’s time to stop
going to museums

~ A K Ramanujan
