Angels speak to the earth
On my first trip to London, I visited the National Gallery almost every day for a three, month period. Central to town the museum was a good meeting place, restful and had great art to view. The only seats available in the gallery were more often than not in front of a painting called "An Allegory with Venus and Time" (1754-1758) by the Italian, Venetian painter Giovanni Battista Tiepolo as though some strange message from God. The Rococo artist Tiepolo gives you a strange sense of perspective in his paintings and aerial view. Time is something often gnawing at artists as they live in the present and a consciousness but, the experience of the Tiepolo painting was godly. Venus is our phase of the moon.
