The Artist

The artist is a receptacle for the emotions that come from all over the place: from the sky, from the earth, from a scrap of paper, from a passing shape, from a spider's web.

- Pablo Picasso.


  1. I know you are busy of late with your bees and computer printers and all the paintings, but I thot you'd like to know I have writ you a pome. It's over at my blog.

  2. A sort of emotional dumping ground really - well possibly in Picasso's case anyway.

  3. Thank you Robert! I enjoyed it very much.

    Geeb. Indeed. Although we do have some control over what comes in / we use. But perhaps that's the definition of an artist: one who is more sensitive to the emotions that come in.

  4. Errr...Pablo said A spider's web - singular! He wasn't visualising a scene from a horror movie.

  5. Ha! Are you sure YP? Think 'Guernica' .
    As, I think Hugh Raffles said: Insects: "Inspiration for dreams, stuff of nightmares..."
