Sunday Citar



Giovanni Boldini


"I would hurl words into this darkness and wait for an echo. And if an echo sounded, no matter how faintly, I would send other words to tell, to march, to fight, to create a sense of hunger for life that gnaws in us all."
Richard Wright

We need the beauty and the words to survive.

I love this painting, love it to my fingertips, and the words....they pour over my spirit and drench me with their truth.

Marvelous pairing of two such beauties.

Today, especially, I thank you for this!

I'm a wordsmith, so the quote grabbed my heart. But the painting is eye-catching.

Oh my goodness. What a lovely picture. I just adore it. I would love to look at that in a gallery all blown up. Amazing.

And the quote accompanying it is just perfect!

Susan Fobes said...

I just love that poem-I couldn't stop staring at it, and the brush strokes make it look as if she is moving (dancing?)

I've missed your Sunday inspirations. Glad they are back.

This is really deep but I just keep thinking of T Rex and his obsession with the echo box at the local discovery center! It makes me giggle.

stunning! My favorite one so far

Jenners said...

I love how your paired these.

Michelle said...

Ooooo I like this. Those are both so stirring. And actually - you should go read The Swan Thieves. Given your interest in art, I think you'd get into the book much faster and better than I did!

Fresh Mommy said...

Oooo, good quote! And the photo is stunning as well! :)

It's amazing how you find the right type of quote for this painting. I thought the painting was haunting and the quote from Richard Wright goes so well.

A beautiful painting expressed by yourself, an artist with words.

Thank you. Love love, Andrew. Bye.

Debbie said...

That is very powerful.

Kim said...

Wow!!! I'll be thinking about this one all day.

The Write Girl said...

I love the beauty and movement through the brushstrokes. I love Richard Wright. Great quote and art!
