Emily Carr. You can see the church, but do you see the cathedral?
Speaking of sculptures, I was amazed by Apollo and Daphne by Bernini at the Galleri Borghese in Rome. The mechanical skill needed to carve from stone the delicate leaves sprouting from fingertips and roots growing from toes is amazing, not to mention the emotion and expression.
Late to the party. Van Gogh’s “Starry Night” accompanied by Don McLean’s song “Vincent”
Colors changing hue
Morning fields of amber grain
Weathered faces lined in pain
Are soothed beneath the artist’s loving hand
Now I understand
What you tried to say to me
And how you suffered for your sanity
And how you tried to set them free
They would not listen, they did not know how
Perhaps they’ll listen now
