Pope, high priestess, devil, magician / Papa, sacerdotisa, diablo, mago

La versión en español está después de la versión en inglés.

I’ve given you a lot of images to look at today, so I won’t say much. I’m really excited to return next week to Málaga’s Centre for Contemporary Art to see the new exhibit (that opens today), because it means I get to do another stroll around the Devan Shimoyama exhibit. You get to see it all right here. I hope you like his work as much as I do.

We’re going out for birthday dinner tonight with good friends. San Geraldo sang to me at midnight and again this morning. The cats sanga, too, beginning at 8:21. I’m going to pretend they were saying happy birthday. Over and over y. For 55 minutes. They stopped once I gave them their morning treats. Funny that.


Les he dado muchas imágenes para mirar hoy, así que no diré mucho. Tengo muchas ganas de volver la semana que viene al Centro de Arte Contemporáneo de Málaga para ver la nueva exposición (que se inaugura hoy), porque significa que podré dar otro paseo por la exposición de Devan Shimoyama. Tienes la oportunidad de verlo todo aquí. Espero que les guste su trabajo tanto como a mí.

Saldremos a cenar de cumpleaños esta noche con buenos amigos. San Geraldo me cantó a la medianoche y otra vez esta mañana. Los gatos también cantaron, comenzando a las 8:21. Voy a fingir que estaban diciendo feliz cumpleaños. Una y otra vez Durante 55 minutos. Se detuvieron una vez que les di sus golosinas matutinas. Gracioso eso.

  1. Well, that’s definitely some interesting art if not very colorful. And a Happy Birthday to you too!!!! I would personally sing to you too, while channeling in my best Marilyn Monroe but I haven’t done my hair yet you see. I hope you have a wonderful night with dinner!

    1. mcpersonalspace54:
      I am obviously now a fan of Shimoyama. I’ve looked online at a lot of his work. A huge range.

  2. Enjoy YOUR day and I know for a fact that cats singing “Happy Birthday” sounds exactly like cats singing “Gimmee my treats!”

    1. Bob:
      Yeah, Moose sang happy birthday to me for an entire hour this morning… while I was still in bed. So kind.

  3. Happy Birthday! Yes, the cats were singing until you blew out the candles and cut the cake, or treats will do. Great photos that is such a great space.

    1. David:
      I love my museum days in Málaga… or any days in Málaga. No candles. No cake. The cats are STILL singing.

      1. Ron:
        I can imagine you getting in the details of his art. It’s got the magic of your creations. Plus collage.

    1. Ron:
      I don’t know why I don’t like this number. I think 68 sounds better… or even 70.

      1. Ron:
        73 is good because if you flip it, it’s 37. But really, who cares! As long as we don’t act our age… although not feeling it would be a super sweet bonus.

  4. Thanks for sharing the art. One of my favorite things to do when I visit cities in Europe is to find interesting art exhibitions. Saw one in Paris in April at the Musée de la Vie romantique not far from Pigalle with art by Françoise Pétrovitch which I very much enjoyed. And one in London at the Courtauld Gallery featuring work by Peter Doig. Can be balm for the soul or stir you up. Either way, I just love looking close and observing their techniques and/or use of color.

    Happy Birthday, Mitchell! And may you have many more happy and healthy ones in the future, too. xx

    1. Mary:
      I could spend my days in art museums and be happy. Thanks for the birthday wishes!

  5. Happy Birthday, Mitchell! Nice gift from Dudo and Moose, to let you sleep in all the way to 8:21 before singing to you. Enjoy your special day! I love, love, LOVE this artist’s interpretation of tarot cards — so colourful, vibrant and full of life! I’d love to see the paintings in person.

    1. Debra:
      Moose is so excited it’s my birthday month, he tried singing to me at 7:47 this morning. He gave up and waited until 8:30… and sang for an hour. Isn’t he sweet? I immediately thought of you when I saw the tarot cards. I’d love to see more of his work. There’s a great range online.

    1. TexasTrailerParkTrash:
      Yes, we Geminis rock. Except when we don’t. Which can happen in the blink of an eye. But then we rock again!

  6. Happy Birthday!! I hope you enjoy(ed) your special day!

    This is a fascinating exhibit and I’m glad to see where the bejeweled Saturn fit in.

    1. Kelly:
      So many of those elements would make brilliant rings, pendants, and broaches. But they wouldn’t have the same effect.

  7. Mitchell, today’s post is just a perfect one to celebrate you — colorful, smart, interesting… what a great way for you to be celebrating your life! Jerry is a gem, as you’ve shown us so many times. Your day is well under way, as I type this in the U.S., and I hope it has been wonderful! Happy birthday, and thanks for all of the great ways that you share yourself, and your interests, with us all!

    1. Judy C:
      Thanks so much. That exhibit was my birthday present to me. I was wowed. Thank YOU for this very special online friendship!

  8. Happy Birthday, Mitchell! Hope you have lots of laughter, love and good food to celebrate!

  9. The cats should have been bringing you treats on your birthday, surely? Mind you, being cats, it might have been a semi-dead mouse, so probably just as well. Happy Day! Jx

    PS Your comment box has gone really weird. Usually it is as wide as the blog window, but today, it’s a tiny box on the page, with gigantic icons for WordPress, F***book and so on to sign in…

    1. Jon:
      Dudo DID bring me one of his toys. It looks like a mouse. Not dead. Ah the mysteries of blog pages. It looks perfectly normal on all my browsers and hardware, and SG’s. I have no idea.

    1. Jim:
      Thank you! As you know, I can get plenty excited about artists and exhibits I see. But Shimoyama really surprised and moved me.

  10. Happy Birthday, and thanks for all the art. I hope that exhibit comes to the deYoung.

  11. The art is interesting. I think I’d be intrigued if I saw it in a museum, but I’m not sure I’d want to live with it.

  12. I collect Tarot decks; wouldn’t this make a lovely set!

    As we say in my house: may these next twelve months be some of your bestest.

    1. Urspo:
      You should see if Devan has painted all the other cards! You could collect the Shimoyama Tarot.

Please share your thoughts...
