Spiritual Meme Question Eight

8--Has your interest and preference for art changed over the years? What sort of art styles and genres were you interested in as a child, teen, in your 20s, vs now? Has your interest range become more specific or has it widened, or both? Why?

Nope, Valesquez, Goya, Van Gogh, Hopper,, Benron, Fritz Eichenberg, Picasso's Guernica. maybe a few i can't think of at the moment  -- always liked them probably always wiil  I have no taste in art, no sense of genre or style.  You have to guess from the above names what grabs me and what leaves me be.  Pictorial art is not my thing, more abstract art even less so.

But i love poetry, sacred poetry, Haiku, story poems, short poems, mystical poems, the "drunken" Sufis, etc.

Writing prompts: only ones that would be hard for you to answer please! {FULL!} - the eclectic ecstasy of an ecphorizing eccentric

I feel very lucky to be able to have seen so much of Goya and Velazquez in person...and the Guernica as well. I remember when they returned it to Spain and we went to see it before it found its forever home at the Reina Sofia Museum in Madrid.

We share a lot of art loves in common.

A few years ago i talked with an artist friend who had recently recently returned from a tour of the Louvre. He was still in awe. Although he had drawn and painted professionally for over 50 years, he had never seen the originals of some of the paintings he loved so much. He could not stop talking about his wonder and amazement.
