♥ Do you remember your first aesthetic shock?
When, as a child, I saw a work of art being born under the brushes of my mother, who was also an artist. I marvelled at its magic.
♥ The artist you would like to meet? What would you say to her?
Well, this is going to sound really strange, but I'll tell you this recent story: first of all, I would like to clarify that I communicate intuitively with animals (this is my 2nd professional activity), but also with humans and all life forms in the broadest sense.
Last week, a friend of mine called me and started telling me stories about Picasso, about whom she had done a lot of research when she was an antique dealer (she has been retired for several years now). I don't really have a feeling for this artist who was, it seems, quite hard and sometimes violent, especially with women. I don't like cubism at all, but I find his line drawings very interesting. Anyway, we were talking, when I feel that Picasso is sending me information (in telepathic form), about his life and some of his works. My friend validated my intuitive feelings, as she knows this artist very well, whereas I was not aware of certain details. We had a sort of 3-way conversation during which he suggested that I get out of the technique and draw with my soul by closing my eyes and letting her guide me. At the end I asked him if he had any students and I "heard" a voice with a Latin accent say "they are all jerks!" We had a good laugh and I haven't yet put the Master's advice into practice, but this is the kind of encounter that I find exceptional, even if it is not necessarily audible to the general public.
Otherwise, I think Leonardo da Vinci and his mysteries would be at the top of the list. I would be very curious to find out his secrets.
♥ What is your favourite colour?
Red, for the warmth, its dynamics, the passion that this colour inspires and is my driving force when I draw.
