kate5kiwis: français friday


“If you were all alone in the universe with no one to talk to, no one with which to share the beauty of the stars, to laugh with, to touch, what would be your purpose in life? It is other life, it is love, which gives your life meaning. This is harmony. We must discover the joy of each other, the joy of challenge, the joy of growth.” — Mitsugi Saotome

français friday

This is Paul Gauguin's Femmes de Tahiti ou Sur La Plage, painted in 1891.
I love the pasifika ambience.
Reflecting on his musings:

Life is like a song, you have to enjoy it while it plays because you never know if it will come on again.

How do you see this tree? Is it really green? Use green then, the most beautiful green on your palette. And that shadow, rather blue? Don't be afraid to paint it as blue as possible.

I shut my eyes in order to see.
