I was going to post these two photos of Ray and Juno, just because they were so cute, but something nagged at me every time I looked at them. I soon realized that, for some reason, they reminded me of paintings; specifically they reminded me of the Tahitian paintings by Paul Gauguin.
I decided to look at images of Gauguin's paintings, pick one or two that were somewhat similar, and then post them alongside these photos of Ray and Juno, but I found that I couldn't narrow my choices enough (although I did kinda like The Fisherwomen of Tahiti). Some of the paintings have similar colors, others have similar composition. So I've decided to just put this out there: If the two of you that still follow this blog are bored, Google "tahitian paintings by paul gauguin" click on the "Images" tab, skim through the pictures, and post the name of your selection in the comments. I'm VERY interested in what you think.

I couldnt pick a second one
That's another one that I liked! I thought the composition was very similar.ReplyDelete
Lovely Husband here: Gauguin for sure, but reminded me of Henri Rousseau's "Tiger in a Tropical Storm"ReplyDelete
I've never seen that picture before. Can I have it for my birthday present?Delete
I'll put it on your list my dear...Delete
How about Day of God? (The bottom half of the picture.) I also considered Tahitian Women Reclining.ReplyDelete
Fun, isn't it, looking at Gauguins and comparing them to Ray. I never realized how post-impressionistic his patterning was until now.Delete
Same with Juno, now that I think about it.Delete
