Ladies in Blue

They are not wearing blue, but are painted in blue. Some scientists think they are goddesses. I do not see any particular godliness in them. I have to admit they look very important. And they look very healthy. One has to be very healthy to have a waist of that size and hair this thick and long.  

What else can be said, just watching them makes one happy. That also explains the position of science on their godliness. A happy and healthy woman is a goddess. Not to mention that in their society some 3500 years ago the women in these ladies’ society had more freedom than most women in the societies of the 21st century.

The Story of Her Hands

Posted in portraits, Random, thought tagged , , , at 11:48 pm by silivalilife

Her hands are the first thing one can see in her whole tired figure. Red and rough from constant contact with cold water, they must belong to someone who worked all her life. One would think a long one.
Then you look up at her face and realize how young she is.

Modigliani captured her  relaxed immediately after concluding her hard work. She contrasts with the other women portraits he used to paint, whether nude, or just beautiful. But it seems to me he put more love into this one.

Never mind that he frowns and looks angry. He just lived a long hard life and he has a lot of wisdom. Sometimes he gets tired from stupid questions and behavior.

Just ask him to teach you something he knows. He will do his best and be very kind to you.

I am not sure when and where I met him, but I remember him just like this. Also he had large strong hands and was older than he seemed.
