Have you done the Pottermore test to find out your patronus yet? I’ve been meaning to, then I forget, still haven’t gotten around to it but I’m itching to find out!
Another day of no music with painting, instead I was watching a movie about Vincent van Gogh’s life. It inspired me to paint something that felt like me. And this would be it.
Followed a friend to a fine art exhibition today. Rut Bryk’s ceramic works are quite something. I loved her earlier works with strong colours and motifs that reminded me of picture books. At the end of her life she went super geometric, all shapes. It makes me wonder if I’ll evolve into something if I keep painting. Vincent went to a looser even more impressionistic style towards the end too. I wonder if that’s the fate of my mind. How loose will I end up going? Or could the mind go the other way, into extreme details, painting huge worlds with tiny details all in ink like Manabu Ikeda? Or like Sven Nordqvist’s picture books, little critters hiding in the bushes, rooms that look like someone’s actually living there.
(I recommend checking out the artists mentioned by highlighting their name, right clicking and choose “Search Google for..”, or at least that’s how it works in Chrome.)
Now to go find out what my Patronus is.. I might need it in the dark.
