Splash du Jour: Friday

The length of Picasso’s shadow crossed other art forms. He was once asked what style he was after. He said, ‘God is really only another artist. He invented the giraffe, the elephant, and the cat. He has no real style. He just keeps on trying other things.’ What Picasso was saying was that he would prefer to be like a deity.
-- Stanley Crouch –

Above is an image of my favorite Picasso painting, Blue Nude.
Have a great Friday!

I love this painting! I actually have a mini poster of it :) Beautiful.

Isn't it totally awesome?
I would love to have a big print of this painting. Or, well... the original would be nice, too!
Currently, like for the past ten years, my main wall has a big huge Starry Night by Van Gogh.
I love the blue tones in it, as well as the blue tones in Blue Nude.
Cheers, Catharina.
