And Palma could feel deep in his heart that Palmina is thinking on him and, sending him maybe 4 times messages  on facebook messenger.

And now at 23 p.m. they dreamed to be together in their Peony Gondola.
Palmina touched Palma’s right arm and Palma could feel it.
Palma smiled. A warm golden light energy.
Palmina also smiled and they saw now this Peony Gondola Vision:

* * *

21th century in Venice.

Palma and Palmina are goning side by side, hand in handy slowly romantic along the beautiful city of Venice.

„Plama?“
„Hmm?“
„Are we dreaming, no Tourists in Venice…“

„Yes, we both are dreaming. But this is the real Venice during the Corona – Virus epidemic in Europe, Asia, America, Africa…“

„…Oh, I see, we are here in our dreams but in the real Venice. Look there is the Rialto Bridge…

…All shops ar closed, also the market“, Palmina said shy with her soft voice.

„All over the world it is forbidden to leave the own home – Corona Virus Pandemic“, Palma.explained.

„…Oh, like we have it now at home…
But we are allowed to walk together in our Peony Gondola Dream…Oh, Palma..“
And Palmina showed her her handy with all her hearts and smilies she sent him with Facebook messanger.

Palma smiled and said that he could feel her positive energy from heart to heart.

Palma looked ad his Messenger and there was nothing on his display.

„They erased my messanges to you…the administrators from facebook messenger…“, Pamina said with a sigh in her words.

IMG_20200327_150536

   picture 2 – closed marked beside the Rialto Bridge in Venice (positon of Palmina’s marked stand  in the 16th century)

Now the crossed the big and beautiful Rialto Bridge.
At the other side there is the traditional marked beside the little church with the 24h display – all shops there are closed.

„Here you sold the little fine white breads in the 16th century…I remember…“

„Oh, yes, Pama I also remember !

„…and you played always on your Venetian lute…“

„…often I played a creation of you and the People bought more breads as I played your Melodies…I was so proud to have always new creations from you, my Pama, my painter, my composer, my big old love…“

And Palmina startd to give a soft kiss on his cheek, shy like al little yellow canary bird. Palma took Palmina and hugeed her.

347. Michelangelo’s big love and inspiration Tessina

347. Michelangelo’s big love and inspiration Tessina

Sistine-Chapel-Vatican

    picture – painting at the Sistine Chapel in Rome, Vatican by Michelangelo

And they continued to dream their Peony Gondola Vision like that:

  * * *

The next morning Palma opened at the early morning his window to his little garden-view.
It is rainy and cloudy, darker as usually, sometimes a wind touches Palma’s face.

Never a bird would sing at this weather, but: suddenly a little bird sat on a roof and started to make music  very sweet and loud, sweet and innocent.
The bird sung a music message from Palmina directly to Palma’s heart.

Now he heard in his heart that Palmina is playing the „Thinking on each other Melody“ which Palma composed once for her. She should play it if she is thinking on him.

Palma smiled and huged Palmina in his thoughts and send her also some heart-to-heart kisses as answer to her’s in his last dreams.

Now he remembers the talk of Michelangelo and Master Titian in the year 1563 in Venice like that:

* * *

„…and I had a lot of intrigues to face in Rome because I had to paint the huge artwork in the famous Sistine Chapel…“, said Michelangelo.

„Oh, really? I know these problems here also in Venice. What helped you to overcome these problems – Contesina Medici?“

„Yes, yes – Tessina! My deep inspiration, my deep love, my reason why I continued to paint on this Creation paintings in Rome…I still love her…“, Michelangelo said with a deep sigh in his voice,
„…Pope Julius II allways asked me in the Sistine Chapel:’When you will come to an end?‘ And I answered  always: ‚When I am finished!‘
Sometimes it was sad and Tessina helped me with inspiring me and calming down and encouraging me…
Years later her brother became the new Pope Leo and he payed me good to finish the huge tomb of Pope Julius the II in Rome in Saint Peters Dome.But Tessina arranged it for me….“

„…Yes, I understand you Master Michelangelo…My secret love (he looked on the stage), my secret inspiration, she helped me also all the years with her music lute playing concerts. There is a healing energy in her music. I hope that she will have a Master Student and her way of music therapeutic talent will be learned by someone in the future.“

Master Michelangelo and Master Titian looked now silent at Palma’s fast drawing of the scene on the little wodden stage.

Michelangelo nodded agreeing as if he wants to say: „Yes, Palma is a talent…“.

Little Palmina tried her first tones on the lute and the beautiful lady said: „Oh, well done! You should learn this instrument. I feel you are talented and interested to learn music…“
Palmina smiled shy and had light-red cheeks.

Palma il Giovane smiled and started with an applause and Titian and Michelangelo started also to applause.

* * *

After they saw this Peony Gondola Vision Palmina put her head to Palma’s side and Palma huged her.

„Look, I composed a 2 minutes Lute Solo for you, my sweet inspiration“, said Palma.

And Palmina showed him her heart which she send him today from her handy.

And the music score was like that:

  Picture 1 – White Pigeon with red rose

And now thew saw again this Peony Gondola Vision:

* * *

Again they are in Venice in the year 1563.

Michelangelo is also listening to the famous music solo playing women.

  After the concert the servants brought some Asian Tea and Master Titian asked Michelangelo about his last years in Rome, if he could finish the Painting about the creation on the Sistine Chapel (1) and if the Pope is paying him for his hard huge fresko painting artwork which takes years of hard work.

Sistine_Chapel_ceiling_02

Picture 2 – Sistine Chapel painted by Michelangelo

Michelangelo begun to talk and to explain.

IMG_20200316_155019

  Picture 3 – Couple created by Michelangelo in Rome, St. Peter“s Vatican State

He told him also that he created also the huge couple of the St.Peters Dome in Rome, Vatican State.(2)

During they talked and Palma il Giovane listened interested as Master Art Student he observed that little Palmina is fascinated looking at the music instrument – the lute.

Palmina brought to the lute player on the little stage shy and friendly also a fresh bread from her basket.
She tried and said „Hm, so delicious…never ate so good fine breads“

  „This bread I created by my own. It is more fine made then usually…“

Palmina wanted to know how the names of the strings of the lute are.

„…Come little angel… The lute has 6 strings the highest is e …than deeper is the  h…than deeper is g…
deeper is named D…than… A….finally the deepest is E.
This is 2 octave deeper than the first string e…“

„Oh fine…may I hold it and try it?“ Palmina asked innocent.

Palmina was allowed to try the instrument and Palma observed this two beautiful ladies from his table during he drunk the white tea. Palma smiled and as longer he looked to them the more he seemed to smile.
Palma started to draw them both very fast on a sheet of paper – Palma was inspired to see the real „Venus of Urbino“ with her lute and the little girl Palmina trying the lute.

Titian observed his Master student with the sever eye of an eagle and Michelangelo stopped to speak in respect of Titian’s observation.

    * * *
After they saw this Peony Gondola Vision, during this, Palma“s handy made a few sounds because he got a message from Palmina“s Messenger  account on facebook. Palmina send him several hearts.

Palma looked at his handy and the display was empty but Palmina showed him her handy and she send him a few hearts again and Palma’s handy made for every heart a sound.

Palma smiled and Palma send her a white Pigeon with a red rose.
Palmina looked on her handy, but also her display was empty.
Palma showed her his message on his handy and Palmina saw the nice picture.
Palmina gave him today a few tender cheek kisses and Palma could feel it although it is before 23 p.m.

Now Palma is inspired and he wrote a new part of his Music Dialogue:

322. Neptune-Venus Inspiration (painting and composing)

322. Neptune-Venus Inspiration (painting and composing)

And after they saw this Peony Gondola Vision Palmina put her head on Palma’s side and Palma put his arm around her.
Palma hoped deep in her heart that Palma will compose again a new creation of creativity in music and painting.
Now they continued to see the Vision like that:

* * *

»Look Palmina, here on the evening sky in Venice there is Planet Venus and over her is Planet Neptune, which was new discovered now by
Galileo Galilee ¹). He is afraid of the Church of Jealousy;  he gets Problems with the catholic church if he makes it public that he discovered a new Planet at the evening Sky.«

______________________________________
¹) G. observed Planet Neptune for a long time and much later in the year 1606 he made an exact record in his papers about the existence of Planet Neptune.
_____________________________________

»Oh, my Palma. You know so much about the Planets at the evening Sky…
I remember as you composed the (Pipa-) Lute solo for me ‚Planets at the evening sky‘ and you played it on your Mandolin for me as I was sleeping after you painted me on that little island at Venice²)«

______________________________________
²) Palma composed this music piece once after he painted her on the little island (see Chapter 5 ) describing the planets on the evening sky.
________________________________________

»…I played it also lonely on my Mandolin, lonely on my Piano, lonely on my Viola at home as I heard nothing from you during your concert tour abroad for several years.
I hoped that you can feel it deep inside your heart…«

»Yes, Palma you played it for me and I could feel it in my heart although the administrator of the Church of Social Media made your post for me invisible to earn money with suppression and isolation.
Thank you, Palma. But I played it also for you on my Lute lonely in my room as I was on that island. My Palma, my friend. You take so much care for me.«

You see today at the evening Planet Venus will pass Planet Neptune at 20:30 p.m.

picture 1 - Planet Venus and Neptune are coming nearer.png
picture 1 – Planet Venus and Neptune are coming nearer

»Woooh. That is great. I love you Palma, whatever comes…«

Palma and Palmina looked again to the stars Venus and Neptune, which are on the west horizon.

Palma took Palmina’s talented hand and kissed her tender and her eyes shined and in her eyes was the reflection of planet Venus and Planet Neptune which are coming slowly closer and closer…

It seems that Palmina is Venus and Palma is Neptune (like ones as he had the painting inspiration of the painting ‚Venus and Mars‘)

Side-by-side hand-in-hand they walked at the big promenade along the Riviera dei Schiavoni.

Palma wanted to go with her to bring her home to her family house at the Campo Bandiera e Moro where the baker’s shop of Palmina is.

This time he brings her up to her little room, to her little room over the little garden where a few cicadas are singing their late-evening song..

* * *

Palmina put her lantern on her table and lit some candles so the room was now full of a golden soft light.

Palmina will now allow to paint her nude.

Palma’s eyes are very open now.
He started to paint her naked nude and it looked very nice.

Palma painted her as beautiful Venus.

A lot of girls and women are dreaming to be painted by the Master Scholar of Master Titan, The director of the Titan School.

Palmina feels it that it is a very big honour to be a painting model for Palma il Giovane; and now he paints her as Venus!

And the Planet Venus on the evening sky came slowly nearer to the giant planet Neptune on the heaven this evening:

As Palma il Giovane made a short break Palmina said:

»Palma?«
»Hmmmm?«
»Here I have all the letters from my music fans…Look, pleaase…«

Palma looked and inspected all the letters from Palmina’s music fans:
Palma compared the letters.

»Hmm..This looks like this one…
And this looks like this one…
Always the same text and the same words…
This man has no fantasy.
These letters has no poetic components…«

Palma continued to read :
»…here this man writes: ‚marry me‘
And this. look Palmina.
also at the end:…you beautiful lady….marry me!«
here also:…you wonderful lady. from Venice…marry me!«
and there:…you famous musician lady…marry me!«
oh no here also:…marry me!«

All the letters have the same writing style, the same words and the same signature style as if the author of this stupid letters are one and the same person.

And Palma continued to read:
»Oh, My beautiful Palmina Albina
When can I paint you nude as Venus – Please marry me, Palmina!

Your Giacomo Negretti Palma Giovane«
Palmina smiled as she heard this letter.

»Palmina, I never wrote this letter…I never wrote ‚Negretti‘ to you in a letter….«

»Ooooh, yes, Palma. You did not write this letter to me?«

»No, I wrote a lot of poetic love letters with a lot of music scores, composed for you…«, Palma said and he looked at her beautiful female nude body, which looked so beautiful in this golden candle light.

This is a trap – a trap of the O.S.!!!

»…Ohh, It was a lady trap of the O.S.???«

»Yes, Palmina, they often make this trick to write fake stalking-letters to a special girl of rich families and then they say that this family need a ‚fake-boy-friend‘ to protect the girl and then they try to marry this girls to get more influence in Venice to expand their Church of O.S.«

»Oh, Palma! You saved my life!!! I love you!!!«

310. Palmina’s happy new year greetings for Palma

IMG_20191229_171658

picture 1 – Venice at evening with Planet Venus and Moon

And after that they continued to dream:

* * *

A few days later the spend also their secret time on that little island.

After Palma painted again Palmina and she played a solo on her instrument for him they took their way back with their Peony Gondola.

Slowly the Peony Gondola moved towards the San Marco Place at this special night.

Left hand there is Giudecca Island and right hand there is Island Giorgio Maggiore.

Palmina hold Palma’s right hand and Palma could feel it. Both smiled and again the golden light was between them.

»Palma?«

»Hmm?«

»What do you think I would write to you if I would now send you a Letter Pigeon with happy new year greetings from my island?«

Palma smiled and took a sheet of paper and started to write and Palmina looked interested holding her lantern to give him light during he was writing.

picture  3 – Fireworks in Venice, San Marco Place

»Giudecca Island, 31th December 1609, 23 p.m.

Dear Palma!

I am always thinking on you.
I want to ask you if you can send me a copy of your music score, your new creation…
I love your creations so much…«

picture 4 - Fireworks in Venice, San Marco Place.jpeg

picture  4 – Fireworks in Venice, San Marco Place

Palma smiled as he wrote this.

»…I can’t wait to see you again after thousands of years.
Now I know it, I was your female Master Scholar as Master Lao came to south Italy to visit our family and our famous Philosophical and Music school.
Master Lao and you had a good friendship and you could exchange west wisdom and east wisdom and knowledge about the secrets of music of the west and the east music tradition and also about the therapeutical possibilities about composing music.
And Master Lao said to me, „Myia, you are the best student of your Master beside Teano. You will see him again and he will compose for you…even in thousand years and also much later…“

I never forget Master Lao’s wise words. And I liked his secretary and master student playing the Gu zin music instrument. She taught me to play an Asian Monochord-looking-like-music-instrument (It had a lot of strings).
And she learned from me the European music instruments.

Palma, I can’t wait to get a new music score from you.
I love to play it and I know that you can feel if I am playing on my instrument, even I play it alone in my little room and no one, except your heart, is listening to me.

Oh, Palma!
I wish you a happy new year!
I hope to see and to hear you again after such a so long time.

Your Pigeon,
your yellow canary bird,
your Palmina Albina

PS: This year Student Heinrich Schütz is coming to Venice to study at Master Gabrieli. At the Epiphany feast he will come to listen at the San Marco Cathedral and I am looking forward to hear there your Aria „Benedictus“, which you composed for your Cousine Mihaela«

And after they saw this Peony Gondola Vision they continued their dream:

✮ ✮ ✮

 

Palma and Palmina took today at Christmas a short walk on the Island Isola di Santa Maria¹), which is behind the island Giudecca and not far.

02 picture picture -   island Isola di Santa Maria in Venice.jpg

02 picture – island Isola di Santa Maria in Venice

Often they walked there to speak about art and music. Sometimes she gave concerts there with her lute.²)

Today is the Christmas feast and they wanted to be a little bit alone before the traditional feast will happen at night in the San Marco Cathedral and Palma’s »Sanctus in G, the Peony Gondola Song« will be sung and played there.

03 picture picture - historic view of Isola-della-Madonna-delle-Grazie-1.jpg

03 picture – historic view of Isola-della-Madonna-delle-Grazie-1

They walked at a green way, full of plants and trees, till they were at a silent place where an old, not used rest of a building was build a poetic corner with window in the broken wall.

»Palma?«
»Hm?«

»This is an interesting place. No one is here. It is so silent here…«, Palmina whispered.

 

04 picture - here at this little island Palma had the inspiration for his Painting L'Aspettazione.png
04 picture – here at this little island Palma had the inspiration for his Painting L’Aspettazione

Palma and Palmina sat down on parts of broken walls of the old building ruin to have a little rest.

Palmina took her lute and played beautifully. Behind her he saw the old wall of the old building and this inspires Palma.

Palma smiled and observed her. Now he is holding his lantern to give her also light.

05 picture - L'Aspettazione del parto di Maria Vergine by Palma il Giovane.png

05 picture – L’Aspettazione del parto di Maria Vergine by Palma il Giovane

 

Suddenly he was inspired to draw her.

Palmina understood: Palma has an inspiration moment.

He started to made drawings for a huge painting.

He saw the angels and the golden light from the heaven.
Palmina smiled and played on her lute.

06 picture - L'Aspettazione del parto di Maria Vergine by Palma il Giovane.png

He painted the animals beside the saint virgin.

07 picture - L'Aspettazione del parto di Maria Vergine by Palma il Giovane.png

07 picture – L’Aspettazione del parto di Maria Vergine by Palma il Giovane

Palma was inspired today on Christmas. The evening was coming slowly and the only light was from their lanterns and the shining evening stars over them in the free nature on this little island.
Palma painted and Palmina played.

As he finished the drawings Palmina asked »How is the name of your creation, Palma«

Palma wrote: »L’Aspettazione del parto di Maria Vergine« on his drawings.

»Oh beautiful, Palma. No one will ever paint such special moment of the live of the saint virgin. You are the only one painter who created this moment…this is short before midnight, around 23 p.m.!!!!«, Palmina said proud.

Palma smiled, because he feels that she understands his creativity and she inspired him.
Palmina smiled and Palma smiled also.
The golden light was again between them and they felt lucky to be together here on the silent place.

And after this painting session Palma and Palmina entered at 23 o’clock p.m. their Peony Gondola and took her way back to the San Marco Place, to be together with all the other to celebrated the feast of this day and to listen the »Peony Gondola Song«.

The Gondola moved like usual the small way between the Giudecca island on the left side, and the Giorgio Maggiore Island on the right side.
straight ahead is the San Marco Place visible now.
During they moved with the Peony Gondola they heard the Peony Gondola Song in their hearts and Palmina is holding Palma’s right hand and Palma could feel it and he smiled.

¹) Santa Maria della Grazia – Wikipedia – https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Santa_Maria_della_Grazia

»SANTA MARIA DELLA GRAZIA or La Grazia is an artificial island of the Venetian lagoon, northern Italy, which lies between the Giudecca and San Clemente.
In 2016 the island was sold to a private company from Treviso, Giesse Investimenti s.r.l., to host a new resort.
History
Santa Maria della Grazia rose during the Middle Ages in the place where Venice’s rubble was discarded. The island takes its name from a supposedly miraculous Madonna which was on display in its former church. In 1264 there was a home for pilgrims to the Holy Land; later it was transformed into a convent.²) «

picture 01 – Morning view San Marco Place

And after they flew with their Peony Gondola along the surface of Planet Mars they continued to communicate with each other as they walked the next morning at the San Marco Place:

»Yesterday the concert in our Palazzo Ducale… it was so beautiful, Palmina… because you played there and because you played my composition, the Lute Solo of the Image Thunder. You are the best Lute player of our Republic, Palmina! I am so glad that you are back on your position…«

And Palmina walked side by side with Palma in this beautiful early morning.
2 Pigeons came flying over their head and landed on the famous place.
The sun will rise in a few minutes and the eastern heaven is slowly getting brighter and brighter, and more and more yellow gold.

Palmina had fresh warm, white, fine, round little breads in her basked and she looked so nice.

*) Here in the 16th century there was a little church in front of the San Marco cathedral.
»Oh, thank you Palma, I have to thank you that you helped me to get my position as 1st Lute player back in the Republic of Venice, after I was 3 years abroad on my concert tour…«

* * *

And as they saw this Peony Gondola Vision they suddenly heard a music which Palmina performed very beautifully like that:
VIDEO: (Morning Walk on the San Marco Place before sunrise) https://youtu.be/sAKQbs_3ls0


»You play so beautiful, Palmina…«

Palmina looked into Palma’s eyes to read in his heart.
Never he looked so directly into her eyes.

Palmina touched Palma’s right hand and Palma could feel it and smiled.
Now they continued to see their Peony Gondola Dream and they saw this:

* * *

The went under the arcades and are holding hands and are thinking about earlier days without saying a word.

04 Piazza San Marco.jpg
picture 04

»Oh, you are really the best Lute player! Ok, it was for us not easy that you went so long on your concert tour…
The people here in Venice listened to other artists and Lute solists, which are not so perfect like you, Palmina…«

05 Explore-Italy-Attraction-Basilica-di-San-Marco-in-Venice.jpg

picture 05

Slowly they went along the arcades till they were at this place directly in front of the San Marco Cathedral.In earlier centuries there was a little church*) in which Palma and Palmina went also often in the morning to lit a candle and to see each other or to meet each other. Today this church is not there any more.

06 Square_San_Marko_in_Venice_at_night_light_(8134404651).jpg

picture 06 – San Marco Place Venice in the morning

Palmina smiled and she took Palma’s arm to walk side by side in the morning with him.
Smiling she took a fresh white fine and warm little bread from her basked and gave it to him. He smiled and took slowly her bread and sniffed on it and looked over it with his eyes into Palmina’s eyes and Palmina smiled now also stronger.

07 Piazza.San.Marco.original.18418.jpg
picture 07

Palmina sniffed now also on the bread and they remembered the early time and their morning secret meetings in the little street »Calle de la Pieta« where their secret deep love started very long time ago.

08 San Marco Cathedral in Venice.jpg
picture 08

Now as they walked into the direction of the San Marco Cathedral, they heard a little choir doing a rehearsal in the Cathedral.

»Who are they?«, Palma asked.

Palma knows all the choirs in Venice. These voices he do not know. – they are brilliant They must come from outside.
Palma il Giovane knows about all music and cultural activities in Venice.

Master Gabrieli wants to send the music student Heinrich Schütz ¹) to Palma to make practical at the Venice Art Gallery and to see how good he is for a professional study of music and composition at Choir Master Gabrieli ²) for the next years in Venice.

»It’s a fine girls choir…«, Palmina said.

And after a while they saw an announcement.

»Oh, Look, Palma..Look, Palma they are send by emperor Rudolf II, who ordered paintings from you for his art collection in Prague! Oh, Look they will perform a few compositions from you here in Venice, here in the most famous church of the city.«

»Oh, really. Maybe they wrote me a letter and the letter was stolen by the administrators of the illegal church of social media and its message thieves…«

»Palma, they are making a concert with your compositions…Wooooh“«

Palmina jumped on the floor like a little girl full of joy.

»Oh, fine, Palmina let us all go to the concert in this famous San Marco Cathedral!«

»Heinrich Schütz (German: [ʃʏt͡s]; 18 October [O.S. 8 October] 1585 – 6 November 1672) was a German composer and organist, generally regarded as the most important German composer before Johann Sebastian Bach, as well as one of the most important composers of the 17th century. […]

After being a choir-boy he went on to study law at Marburg before going to Venice from 1609–1612 to study music with Giovanni Gabrieli². Gabrieli is the only person Schütz ever referred to as being his teacher. He also inherited a ring from Gabrieli shortly before the latter’s death. He subsequently was organist at Kassel from 1613 to 1615.
²) Giovanni Gabrieli – Wikipedia – https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Giovanni_Gabrieli

»Giovanni Gabrieli (c. 1554/1557 – 12 August 1612) was an Italian composer and organist. He was one of the most influential musicians of his time, and represents the culmination of the style of the Venetian School, at the time of the shift from Renaissance to Baroque idioms. «

picture – Palazzo Ducale (Dogan’s Palace) at right, Astronomical 24h clock (in the middle) and in Venice at evening and the windows Palma’s flat in the 2nd floor (left beside the astronomical clock building)

»And now we can see the famous paintings by Giacomo Palma il Giovane…«

And the honour guests of the Republic of Venice could now see the huge paintings of Giacomo Palma il Giovane.

»Can I have an autograph, please Maestro Diacomo…«

»Oh, Giacomo with G… my Name starts with a G.«, Palma said and gave some autographs to the interested people.

And they looked now at the paintings of G – iacomo Palma il Giovane:

* * *

And after they saw this beautiful Peony Gondola Vision at 23 o clock p.m. Palma said:
»Palmina?«

»Hm?«

4ducale5.jpg

»Today, a bird sung so beautiful this morning as I looked out of the window…
The bird sung very soft so that only I could hear his message. He sung although it was very dark in the early morning…Did you…?«

06DUCALE.JPG

»Yes, I know, this bird sung to bring you my message: I send you today to your name day my best wishes…
Your name starts with G. Your name is G….«

And Palma took Palmina’s hands and kissed them.
»Oh, thank you my Pigeon….
So talented hands…

always doing rehearsing and playing so much for the republic at the Palazzo Ducale…
…baci, baci, qīnqīn…now your hands and fingers are healed by the golden light… «

And Palmina smiled and it felt for her if she is surrounded by hundreds of peony flowers and said sweet:

»Oh, Palma…, my Palma, my painter, my composer, did you wrote a copy of your new »Golden Light« creation?«

And Palma continued to kiss tender and soft her talented hands to heal her and with one hand he took his music score beside the soft Peony Gondola seat and gave her the music score.

And Palmina smiled much stronger and much happier.

»Woooh, so fast…the whole music score !!!
Oh, Thank you Palma!…«

»…I have to thank you that you played so beautiful in the Palazzo Ducale…

Not only this evening! Also all the years as I was painting in the Palazzo Ducale at the huge paintings there.

Your Lute music made me so strong and inspired and you brought me allways fresh bread and food from the kitchen of the Palazzo Ducale.

My paintings would not have this success if there was not your music playing directly to my heart, Palmina«

Palmina smiled and was lucky about this friendly words.

Yes Palmina supported Palma secretly with her talent only a few musicians have developed.

The most only play on their instrument, but Palmina radiates golden light.
Palmina hugged Palma smiling and gave him a tender cheek kiss.

And Palmina heard now the music again of the »Golden Light« and both felt if they where flying with their Peony Gondola over the surface of planet Mars in a music dreaming Peony Gondola Vision and they saw the music score like that:

301. Palma’s drawing inspiration during music listening

301. Palma’s drawing inspiration during music listening

»Heaven, yes heaven! I have to paint here over the main painting of this San Saba Chapel a scene from heaven….«

Now Palma felt inspired to draw an inspiration on a paper.
He lit his lantern and some candles he used to paint at evening there in the church.

Palmina could feel that he is inspired and started to support him with playing on her lutes.

»Yes, this will be in the middle above in the half circled painting…«, Palma whispering into Palmina’s ear.

They are completely alone in this Church San Antonin in Venice.
And no one could see what they are doing up there on the wide scaffolding under the half-circled window.

Palmina smiled and looked what Palma had created.
She tries to understand how the painting should look like if it is complete.

»This is only a section of the painting…the middle part…here… this should be there«.
Palma stood up and went carefully to the position where the painting should be.

Now Palmina understood also that Palma will paint this year longer in the chapel because he wants to draw the heaven he saw now in the vision.

»Woooh, so great…and,and… here you painted a Saint Spirit Pigeon!!! Isn’t it Palma?«

»Yes, my Pigeon. The Pigeon which brings the saint spirit! And here I will paint the saint Pigeon and the saint Pigeon only we both can see if we are here at the scaffolding and no one who stands down on earth, if the scaffolding is removed will see our saint spirit pigeon. Pssst. (only if a pigeon or angels lands out there at the window she can see the painted saint spirit pigeon) This Is Our secret, Pssst…«, Palma whispered and he looked at his drawing and he was holding the lantern a little bit nearer to see it better.

Palmina lifted also her lantern and looked interested. Both were sitting on their knees and looking at the place in the huge half circle where the painting in orange colours, the colour of enlightenment and heaven will be painted soon by the well known Palma il Giovane.

So this means every evening when Palmina finished her evening concert in the Doge’s Palace where she plays a Lute solo for the international honour guests of the Republic of Venice, she can walk directly her way to the Chiesa Sant‘ Antonin where Palma is the whole day working on the big paintings of the San Saba chapel (on his huge confortable scaffolding).

Yes, this she realized without saying a word and she smiled very strong.
She looked shy on the wooden floor of the scaffolding then she looked up to Palma without moving her head.

picture 3 - Overview - »Campo Bandiera et Moro« (Palmina's Home), Chiesa »San Antonin« (Palma's paintings), The Atelier at the Fondamenta di Furlani and the »Scuola«.png

picture 3 – Overview – »Campo Bandiera e Moro« (Palmina’s Home), Chiesa »San Antonin« (Palma’s paintings), The Atelier at the Fondamenta di Furlani (where Palma also painted Palmina as model) and the »Scuola«

»I will be there every time I have time after the concert Palma…«, she told him with her heart.

And they thanked the heaven for all that art inspirations in music and painting and they thanked the Saint Virgin, they thanked Santa Lucia who send the saint of music into Palma’s difficult live.
And suddenly Palma had a great idea that her father would not be angry because Palma is painting so long in the near area of Palma’s flat at the baker’s shop.

picture 4 - Palma's fast drawing (right side up) on a paper which has still a painting on it. It was the first inspiration for the painting »Miracolo del fornaio«- Palma il Giovane (1593).jpg

picture 4 – Palma’s fast drawing (right side up) on a paper which has still a painting on it. It was the first inspiration for the painting »Miracolo del fornaio«- Palma il Giovane (1593)

»Look, I paint the Saint Saba here. The Miracle which happened at your bakery shop long ago…«

Palma drew fast and he used a drawing on which  he drew the saint virgin with her baby for an other painting.
He painted the scene of the »Miracolo del fornaio«
Palmina started again to play for him and he saw the whole painting like that in a vision.

After the tradition of Master Titian the painting has to be painted only in white colours and later the colours are painted on that white oil painting.

Palma smiled during he was drawing and she could also see in a vision with Palma that Palma will use Palmina’s father as model for the painting (the baker at left)

Palmina understood also that if the Syrian pilgrims will came to Venice very often, the bakery shop will get a big business in the future and Palmina’s father will do nothing against this painting art project.
Also the Republic of Venice wants to have the saint bones of San Saba here in Venice if the miracle is documented and painted by the famous painter Palma il Giovane of Venice.

»Oh, my Pigeon you are inspiring me so much, my Santa Cecilia, my Pigeon, my yellow canary bird…«, Palma whispered into Palmina’s ear

»Oh, Palma I love to play your music creations.
My composer, my writer, my painter…«, Palmina whispered Palma in his ear.

And they saw all the Landscapes flying over Planet Mars and Palma was also inspired to write remembering about his Uncle. Some Landscapes look like buildings. This they saw in their music Peony Gondola Dream at 23 p.m.
It felt like flying over Mars with the so called »Dragonfly«¹)

_____________
¹) A flying vehicle for 2 persons which was constructed to fly over Planet Mars in a speed of 200 km/h.

»Palma?«

»Hm?«

»Can I have the music score of the 5-beat creation, the golden Proportion music (3:2) …?«
»Oh yes, my Pigeon. Here is the music score…«

Palmina smiled and was very lucky and she hugged Palma with her heart and again there was the golden light heart – to heart – connection between them.

Palma smiled also.
