Magritte Clouds Over Cathedral Rock   1 comment

Cathedral Rock blogCathedral Rock in the Sedona Verde Valley

In a Magritte sky
clouds formed
from the smoke
of a stemmed pipe
one sunkissed on
Catalina peaks
the other an
Upflow Vortex
each a cathedral rock
named in history
remaining covered
invoking mystery
concealing nothing.

“We are surrounded by curtains. 
We only perceive the world 
behind a curtain of semblance. 
At the same time, 
an object needs to be covered 
in order to be recognized at all.”

– René Magritte

30, 40, and 50, Joy’s Delusions of Grandeur   1 comment

“Joy’s Delusions of Grandeur” — Image by kenne

We love René Magritte paintings, especially those that make use of white cotton clouds in a vibrant blue sky, like “Delusions of Grandeur II.”

During our recent visit to the J. Paul Getty Museum, I photographed Joy next to René Magritte’s bronze statue, “Delusions of Grandeur.” As we walked toward the statue, said, “That’s me at 30, 40 and 50!”

Magritte painted Delusions of Grandeur II in 1948, the bronze statue was done in 1967, the year of his death.
