Random Artsy.

SSQUO's Sunday Scribblings this week is about art. Well, I don't know much about art, yet I know what I like and what form it should be. Yes, as an evil person, it is traditional to like the colour black and other darker hues. But that's for 'official' capacity, like nobody would take a serial murderer in colourful costumes seriously.

So let's be artsy for a few moments... I Googled 'van gogh sunflowers' and this is the painting I always remember. Yes, I admit that I LIKE sunflowers. To make fun of this fact will invite a scathing entry all about you, my daring assailant. You have been amply warned.

                                            

I prefer the paintings from the old masters not because they worth a lot of money, but the reason why they worth so. This Van Gogh's might look like had been painted by an amateur (by you people who are so obsessed with realism) but to me, Mr Painter had captured the essence of the moment - beautiful yellow sunflowers in a vase. Only that, not the table spread or the scenery behind it. The painting is only about those flowers in a vase - pretty simple.

Tell me about your favourite paintings.

p.s. - I have many sunflowers pictures for my desktop. I think the sunflower is so often overlooked by many people, who prefers exotics like roses and orchids. And I STRESSED here that I only like my sunflowers in vases and pictures, not on shirts, item of decorations or even bedspread! I have class, ok.

I love this picture too. I like a lot of Van Gogh's work (except his early period, like the potato eaters - so ugly). Because I like animals I love animal art and I also like really bold strong colours,so strong coloured animals are my favourite. I love the work of Klee and Kandinski and I like Stubbs as well, although he is on the more realistic end of the scale.

I like Van Gogh's sunflower too. I don't really know 'bout paintings and those artsy stuffs. I prefer crafts, actually.

Not really into the art thingamajig. A nice painting's a nice painting. That's all there is to it for me.

Won't pretend I'm 'deep'.

Inky, I used to like the pictures of horses when I was small. And then I realized that I would never have one for a pet. :(

I am not a craft-person miss ash, but crafty, yes. :)

Aizan, the opposite of deep is shallow. Are you? :)

Thanks for the link! I am not an art connoiseur myself either, but I do enjoy paintings. We have copies of these two paintings back home at my parents house (my house too!):
Renoir: http://www.renoirgallery.com/gallery.asp?id=149

And theres another with three ballet dancers I think. Its very pretty.

Inkpot: I have a copy of Kandinsky's Composition No. 6 1913 on my wall right above my tv. Its quite chaotic, but me liked it. I see a guitar there somewhere and a some part of face...but I am often staring at it to see what other shapes, parts etc I can find. It keeps me busy when I am having my cup of tea! :)
