when I’m feelin’ blue

Between the years 1902-1905, Picasso’s ‘blue’ period produced an amazing collection of works. It’s extensive and at first, received a very lukewarm reception from the art ‘set’ of that time. The painting’s are strikingly somber. The subjects are frighteningly deathly and posed in such a way as to convey great pain and depression. ImageTake the unidentified ‘Femme aux bras Croises’, who many believe to be an inmate of the Saint-Lazare hospital prison in Paris. ImageOr ‘The Old Guitarist’ which depicts an extremely frail and blind musician on the streets of Barcelona and who quite possibly weakly plays his own requiem mass.

Right now, I’m painting with more blue. In fact quite liberally (!) and the vibe is anything but all ‘grim and grave’.
