The Museum of Fine Arts in Houston had both a Pablo Picasso exhibit and an impressionist exhibit. Both were wonderful and inspiring.
Picasso always fascinates me. I would love to go back in time and crawl inside his mind to see how he sees the world. He pulls things apart and rearranges them on canvas in ways that confuse and enchant me. Was he whimsical or seriously symbolic with his art?
Am I whimsical or seriously symbolic? For me, I suppose, it depends on the work. Some are created when I’m going through something emotional and they are an expression of this, such as my hearts. Some are whimsical and just FUN. And still others are planned around symbolism, but not necessarily emotionally inspired, but more intellectually or spiritually inspired.
