The Painting of the Week

This weeks painting of the week is very odd. I do like it vey much. I will admit that I am a very artistic person. I've been told that. I can see that. Most people that know me will told me that too. If you see my playlist, you'll see that too. When you see this picture you'll think that I have lost it. But this picture is deffinatly a favorite. I thought that it was by Van Goh, but it isn't! It is the almost exact texture and same type of painting way that he does. But it is not Van Goh! Can you believe it? Well, when you see it, you will. It is by a man of the name of Edvard Munch. Did I give the painting away? Well, if you know your paintings, then maybe. I have so many thoughts with this picture. In Looney Tunes Back in Action, they use this painting when Daffy and Bugs are getting chased by Elmur Fudge. Very funny part. Have you ever seen that movie? Maybe with your kids or grandkid? I saw this movie at my Dad's house and we have it at his house too. Maybe I can get a part of the movie from UTube or something. Well, I guess you might want to see the picture. Before you see the picture, can you guess it? It was made in 1893 and he wanted to "the study of the soul,that is to study myself." I think that is some good words. To me that means that he wants to find the inner part of himself. If that is himself, well, I guess I don't want to know who he really was. My guess is that he was like a lot of artists. Crazy but not really noticing it. Maybe he did notice it. He was born in Norway. I thought the name might have been Russian. What do you think?
This picture is called The Scream. Very unique and it explains a lot of things in it. What does it explain to you? I see a midlife crisis. Maybe a girlfriend breakup. Who knows?

I can't believe you didn't tell the crazy funny story about how we discovered this painting!! HA!! I am sure when he painted it, Munch never imagined how we would act it out in our situation.

As your daddy would say, it's a real beaut. Or it's a real doozy.

He looks like a very lost and sad man. One who is very confused and in need of a Saviour. I hope someone was there to tell him the "Good News."

I enjoyed your visit. May your weekend be happy and blest. Mrs. Connie
