The letters of our thoughts are the ideas present in our mind before they come to realization . . . Thoughts that are, yet not felt . . . The words of the subconscious . . . of the soul . . .

These are the LETTERS OF MY THOUGHTS.

It's a beautiful piece, Turner always was good at capturing movement.

sarabonne - now THIS is what i consider art. not that "stuff" in the moma :P

Very Chronicles of Narnia. Makes me think of Prince Caspian.

Cheerio said...

you read that Christian propaganda vehicle?

LE7 said...

I also read the His Dark Materials trilogy which is blatant atheistic propaganda. I happen to like both series.

sarabonne said...

hmmm, very contraversial, don't get brainwashed now!
MoMa is bizzare. I suppose some pieces are there to shock us into rethinking previous evaluations.
I wonder how jaded we'll become?
We had this conversation already...hmmm.

I'm glad you guys like it.
For the record don't mess with MoMa

I believe it was that post that lead me to believe you have a fancy shmancy camera.

I love this painting - The Fighting Temeraire - I've been lucky enough to see it at the National Gallery in London (a place I have spent many a lost hour!).

A bit of info - she saw battle and was badly damaged at the Battle of Trafalgar and was actually known as the Saucy Temeraire in reality...

The London National Gallery . . . I gotta hit that up next time I'm in London :-)
I like Turner because his style has so much income with the styles I love - Romanticism and Impressionism!

before I scrolled down to see the entire painting - I saw the yellow in the top right corner and thought "turners yellow"..
and hey, i was right.

LE7 said...

Gosh, Sefira(H), you are such an art student.

Comments on Prince Caspian and His Dark Materials are now on Mottel's blog?

Great books. Good way of learning about Xtian ideas (like tshuva of Eustace and the dragon) and how an atheist hated the Church, respectively.

Turner is one of my favorite, favorite painters. Masterful.
