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.

Garden of Earthly Delights


Garden of Earthly Delights, Hieronymus Bosch

Along the roadside between C'an Picafort and Arta grew the arbutus that Will's mother said would bear white flowers and red fruit simultaneously in a month or two. I wanted to see that, I wondered if I ever would. She said the fruit was like strawberries growing on branches.

'They look like strawberries but they have no taste.'

That is one of the few remarks of Iris Harvey's I can remember.
--quoted from Ruth Rendell's The Strawberry Tree

Still Life with Oranges

Matisse sent Picasso oranges each year. The latter never ate them because Matisse's oranges were to be looked at.
