Fine Art Friday

"Sun Set Sail"
Rob Gonsalves

The style of this painting and all others by Canadian artist Rob Gonsalves is magic realism. If you search for his art, you will see all kinds of interesting imaginations.

To me, the images are what dreams are like.

Janie, what an interesting painting! However, I am an Old School art historian and can't seem to break free from my art snobbery. Most of modern painting and art doesn't do anything for me. My appreciation lies with those great artists of the Modern Era, way back to the Ancients. It is my opinion that Picasso's genius, Michelangelo's masterfulness, Van Gogh's color, and Manet's representation of real daylight can't be beaten! This is not to mention that I do step back from many of my contemporaries in art history and have affection for the Pre-Raphaelites. Have you seen this style of painting? My favorite is entitled "Ophelia." It is a hypnotic and beautiful drowining scene (if one could possibly be represented).

BTW, please tell Cathie that I'm praying for her and thinking of her, her dd, and grandbaby. My heart goes out to her.

Blessings, Janie.
