This is not a pipe.
I took this quiz in fb What famous painting are you? - or something like that) and the result is this painting. Idk if the result of the quiz is accurate, but I think it’s apt for a Philosophy grad like me
Painted by the surrealist painter Rene Magritte, La Trahison des images (Ceci n’est pas une pipe) was inspired by the belief that “art was not reality but a mere representation of it”. Magritte did in fact paint a pipe, however he sought to relay to the viewer that the pipe wasn’t actually a pipe but rather an image of the real thing.
"The famous pipe. How people reproached me for it! And yet, could you stuff my pipe? No, it’s just a representation, is it not? So if I had written on my picture "This is a pipe", I’d have been lying!"
- Rene Magritte
1928–29, Oil on canvas
63.5 cm × 93.98 cm (25 in × 37 in)
Hello Starbucks, we meet again ♥
A painting perfect for this month of Love ^_^
Probably Gustav Klimt’s most famous painting and also the most famous painting in Austria, “The Kiss” depicts “a man and a woman beautifully drawn while sharing a kiss.” The man is shown bending down to kiss his lover’s welcoming cheek, and the woman, with her eyes closed, is feeling the sweetness of the gesture. The painting is full of passion, full of emotion and full of intensity.
—-Gustav Klimt, The Kiss (Der Kuss), 1907-8, oil and gold leaves incorporated on canvas, 180 x 180 cm (Österreichische Galerie Belvedere, Vienna)
P.S. I don’t paint and I’m not taking any art classes, but lately, I’ve been more appreciative of artsy stuffs :))
Its important to be comfortable with uncertainty.

So I am currently having my 2nd Midterms Exam Hellweek in Lawschool and I’m having big problems with the current weather. It has been raining like crazy for almost two weeks now here in our place, so the result? My laundry is piling up and I am having problems studying because I’m always sleepy. On a lighter note, I get to layer up and wear my sweaters —- a rare occassion in a tropical country like ours.
