Time again to sit at The MiniBar and admire a new piece of work painted by our youngest artist “Le Piou de Pomme”.
Unfortunately I have heard that he’s been a little bit poorly recently… well, I guess it is very cold right now where he lives in the North of France!
We all wish you to get better very soon, wonderful little man!
Personally I find this piece amazing. As an artist I am amazed by the extreme composition, and I guess there is hardly a grown-up artist who would dare to make such a one. And when I say “dare” I do mean it. Really, we should look more often at what our children draw and take some courage for an original and contrasting rich artistic style. By the way this applies to our lives too…
Without getting too deep into some psychological considerations, I wonder if this artistic ability of strong contrasts which Piou seems to have results from the extremely original and rich style of life which he is living within his family, thanks to his mother Pomme… I guess it has a lot to do with it!
I am intrigued too, quite deeply in fact, by the way how Piou featured the two characters on this drawing. The colours are exactly inverted by the girl and the boy. Why is it? Is it because the boy (which I assume is Piou himself) has blond hair and the girl black hair that he inverted the other colours on them?
And then, I would love to know why he painted the feet or shoes the way he did. I first thought that the boy is in fact standing on a little piece of garden, but then I saw the blue square piece by the girl… does that mean that she is standing on water? Does that mean that we have got it totally wrong with Jesus? That he was girl and not a boy?
And blue clouds” in a white sky? I thought it is white clouds in a blue sky!
God, Piou, you throw my whole knowledge overboard!
But at least I am happy to see that the persons have still 5 fingers on each hand… although… what happens really with the girl’s right hand?
Anyway… I am given no titles for Piou’s paintings, so I will always have to give it one myself. My feeling here is that this little boy on the drawing might in love with the little girl, and this is why I called it “First Love?”
You are welcome to propose some others, I am sure that Piou would love it!
