Today I met some very arty people. I started the gathering off with my most famous quote:
‘I don’t paint dreams or nightmares. I paint my own reality.” Frida
It was so lovely to have Picasso, Andy Warhol and Van Gough (in fact three dropped in!) to stop in for a chat about their artwork. Andy was raving about something deep and meaningful which I just loved.
‘Don’t think about making art, just get it done. Let everyone else decide if it is good or bad, whether they love it or hate it. While they are deciding, make even more art.”
Banksy turned up with his spray can. Even a unicorn popped in from somewhere and a koala – how lucky was I!
I realised how opposite I am to Vincent, for he said,
“I dream my painting and I paint my dream.” “Be clearly aware of the stars and infinity on high. Then life seems almost enchanted after all.”
Even though he was a bit down, I am glad he made it today, it’s good to be amongst friends during this time.
Signing off for now,
See you next time!
