There are chemists who spend their whole lives trying to find out whats in a lump of sugar. I want to know one thing. What is color? - Pablo Picasso
(I want to know if any of you can feel the 'energy of color' - I mean different colors make you feel different ways don't they?). Speaking of colors - God is the best painter of all:

Just as some people refuse to see their faults, so there are those who insist on digging too deep, persecuting themselves over every fault and making unreasonable demands upon their lives. Eventually they collapse from exhaustion, or worse, kick back with resentment.This is why no person should go it alone. Everyone needs a mentor, someone who can look objectively and say, “This is were you are right now. This is what you can expect from yourself right now.”
Happy Birthday Picasso - (who gave Chicago many of his pieces and they are displayed downtown - and while colorful I must admit I never could quite understand - lol - now I know why!)
After the liberation of Paris in 1944, Picasso began to keep company with a young art student, Françoise Gilot. The two eventually became lovers, and had two children together, Claude and Paloma. Unique among Picasso’s women, Gilot left Picasso in 1953, allegedly because of abusive treatment and infidelities. This was a severe blow to Picasso.
He went through a difficult period after Gilot’s departure, coming to terms with his advancing age and his perception that, now in his 70s, he was no longer attractive, but rather grotesque to young women.
Picasso was not long in finding another lover, Jacqueline Roque. She worked at the Madoura Pottery in Vallauris on the French Riviera, where Picasso made and painted ceramics. The two remained together for the rest of Picasso’s life, marrying in 1961. Their marriage was also the means of one last act of revenge against Gilot. Gilot had been seeking a legal means to legitimize her children with Picasso, Claude and Paloma. With Picasso’s encouragement, she had arranged to divorce her then husband, Luc Simon, and marry Picasso to secure her children’s rights. Picasso then secretly married Roque after Gilot had filed for divorce in order to exact his revenge for her leaving him.
What do you think of that?
