by Palma il Giovane

»Oh, Palma. Thank you for your little concert for me.«, Palmina said and she put her head on Palma’s side, sitting beside him in the Peony Gondola.

»I have to thank you that you decided to play my composition in your concert at the Doge’s Palace in Venice.
Every time you play something from me I can feel it deep in my heart.
It is a warm and golden light. I have to thank you, Palmina, my Pigeon. My inspiration.«

Palmina smiled.

»Did I inspire you to a new artwork, my Palma?«

»Yes, look, Palmina, I have a new music creation…«

Palma created a new creation for Violin and Piano and they listened and it was like that:

»…and this: Look: Planet Saturn and its moons are moving exact behind the sun the astronomers calculated…«

»Oh, really, yes…«

And Palmina put her head to Palma’s side and they saw the vision together and they listened this Saturn-sun-music creation like that:

And they continued to dream their Peony Gondola Vision and they saw this:

* * *

picture 1 – view of the different places where composer Gabrieli and composer Monteverdi placed his several choirs (often 3 or 4) and instrumental groups within the same composition in this San Marco Cathedral in Venice

After Cousine Mihaela sung so beautiful her Sopran Aria, Master Gabrieli stood up from the Organ to conduct several Choirs.

They sung also a composition of Gabrieli composed for several choirs and instrument groups, standing at different positions in the Church Basilica San Marco in Venice.

»It sounds to be like in heaven!«, Giulia, Palma’s younger daughter said.
Palma was lucky that his daughter’s are interested in arts and music. Giulia is also making progress in her study of painting in the Titian academy.
Giulia is finishing Palma’s painting with landscapes, trees, the buildings etc… in the background part of his paintings.
Palma smiled to his Giulia proud.

From all directions, from up left and from up right, there is coming choir- and ensemble music.

»Did Master Gabrieli compose this music piece for 4 choirs, standing on 4 different positions in our golden Basilica?«, Palma thought and looked around the golden Basilica to find the place where the musicians are making wonderful music.

During the music he begun to think about the recent private concert in Palma’s flat with its big private concert hall: »Hm, Heinrich Schütz could play the Harpsichord at this concert… Hm, hm, and Palmina could play the Lute part…
…at the actual performance of Claudio Monteverdi’s¹) L’Orfeo²) in our palace on San Marco Place, in the 2nd floor.
There will be special honour guests of our republic of Venice.
Hm, hm, hm,… and if Claudio Monteverdi says that he is a brilliant musician, then I can tell this positive words about Schütz as musician to Master Gabrieli at our next tea time meeting…«, Palma thought silent and smiled.

Palmina smiled because she also thinks »That is a good idea, Palma…«

»..how can I make Heinrich Schütz to be not only Master Gabrieli’s music student, but to be his Master Student?
Maybe with this idea…!«, Palma il Giovane thought.

There are a lot of music students coming with money to study in Venice, to study music or to study painting; but to be a Master student, this is a big privilege.

You have not only to be a very, very good music student, you have to be also choosen by the Master himself.

* * *

As they saw this Peony Gondola Vision, Palmina and Palma sat beside in the Peony Gondola at 23 p.m.

Palma could feel that Palmina’s left hand ring finger is painful because of doing rehearsal so much.

Palma took her left hand and kissed her tender and soft to heal her hand and her ring finger.

Palmina smiled shy and her pain was gone.

»Palmina?«

»Hm?«

»You are preparing a new concert?«

»Yes, Palma, my Master. I want also to play a composition of you in my next concert and I send you a messenger to inform you.
Hm, but it seems that the Administrators of the church of social media have stolen my letter to you…«

»Palmina…« and he kissed her hand again soft and tender, full of love and light, full of golden light, »…in my heart I felt your positive thoughts towards me. In the nature a little bird sung a melody from you and I listened to the bird lucky. I am very lucky that you want to play a composition of me.«

»…you remembered that Master Lao said to you 1000 years ago that we will met again… I give you from now on your old name Mia. I was your Master once and I was your…«

Palmina smiled and hugged suddenly his old Master and said with her soft voice:
»Oh, Master. We have now the chance to work together in inspirative way as artists and you have given me back my old name: Mia«

»Yes, Mia!
Si certo, mia dolcissima Mia!«

»Oh, my old Master P…«

»Psst, don’t say my name!«, Palma said fast.

»Oh, wo de dà shi G…«

»Psst, don’t say my name!«, Palma said also fast.

»Oh, mio maestro Palma il Giovane!«

And Palma hugged her now stronger and both had tears in their eyes.

Now they saw suddenly Master Lao on heaven and he showed them a interesting Vision about the century of Mia (before Lao tze came to the West); the moment as Xuan Ming was choosen as Master Student of Lao tse and his personal writing-secretary and his personal taking-care-of him-secretary:

And they saw suddenly a Vision:

¹) Claudio Monteverdi (1567 – 1643) – Wikipedia – https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Claudio_Monteverdi

»Claudio Giovanni Antonio Monteverdi (15 May 1567 (baptized) – 29 November 1643) was an Italian composer, string player and choirmaster. A composer of both secular and sacred music, and a pioneer in the development of opera, he is considered a crucial transitional figure between the Renaissance and the Baroque periods of music history.«

»[…] Monteverdi’s early musical training, or evidence that (as is sometimes claimed) he was a member of the Cathedral choir […]. Monteverdi’s first published work, a set of motets, Sacrae cantiunculae (Sacred Songs) for three voices, was issued in VENICE in 1582, when he was only fifteen years old.«

²) »L’Orfeo – Wikipedia – https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/L%27Orfeo
L’Orfeo, sometimes called La favola d’Orfeo [la ˈfaːvola dorˈfɛːo], is a late Renaissance/early Baroque favola in musica, or opera, by Claudio Monteverdi, with a libretto by Alessandro Striggio. It is based on the Greek legend of Orpheus, and tells the story of his descent to Hades and his fruitless attempt to bring his dead bride Eurydice back to the living world. It was written in 1607 for a court performance during the annual Carnival at Mantua. While Jacopo Peri’s Dafne is generally recognised as the first work in the opera genre, and the earliest surviving opera is Peri’s Euridice, L’Orfeo is the earliest that is still regularly performed.«

311. Palma’s Answer to Palmina’s Pigeon Letter

311. Palma’s Answer to Palmina’s Pigeon Letter

picture - Santa Lucia Jacopo Palma il Giovane Chiesa dei SS. Geremia e Lucia Venezia.jpg
picture – Santa Lucia by Palma il Giovane (Palmina was model)

And now the year changed and the fireworks in Venice made colourful figures at midnight, the 1st of January, on the night sky over Venice.

Palmina hugged Palma and kissed him long and tender on the right side of his cheek beside his lips.
And Palma could feel it and smiled, and he smiled for a long time.

»Happy new Year! Palma!«

»Happy new year! Palmina!«
They dreamed a long time side by side in the Peony Gondola, observing the nice and colourful fireworks over Venice.

Palma was lucky and Palmina was also lucky.

»How would I answer if I also write a Pigeon Letter to you as answer, Palmina?«

Palmina took also a piece of paper and wrote also a letter on it.

Now Palma holds the lantern so she gets light from him:

» Venice, 1st January 1610

Dear Palmina!

I also think always of you.
There is no moment without positive thoughts of you.
It may be right if Master Lao told you once that we will meet again several times…
In Asia and India the people say that a soul comes again back to life and it happens that souls are meeting each other, even after hundreds or thousands of years.

I have the same feeling like you.
I also can’t wait to see you again after such a long time.
In my thoughts we are connected and no one can take this.
We know each other from earlier time.
Maybe I was in a later century once Marco Polo and you my Chinese Princess, the beautiful Buddhist nun, which I brought back to Venice and you lived there at the Gardens of Giudecca Island with about 600 people. Now in our century you are living again there – I mean you have an own flat there as music teacher of the Le Zitelle Girls.
And you learned again an Asian Music Instrument – The Chinese Pipa Lute –
But at Master Lao’s century you learned a Gu zheng – am I right, my Pigeon? And yes, you had been my Music Master Student. That’s why you understood my 8 Asian creations – the 8 Lute solo – from the first moment.
No one would understand these 8 Lute soli and it’s meaning – except you – for the future of peace for Europe and Asia – It is a Marco Polo Music Peace Message – because the knowledge about such music projects are inside of you.
And you understood this music from the first moment…«

Palma smiled and Palmina looked into Palma’s smiling eyes.

In her beautiful shining eyes was the reflection of the soft light of the lantern and the colourful firework in Venice.

310. Palmina’s happy new year greetings for Palma

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.jpeg

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«

01 picture – Palma’s painting inspiration – L’Aspettazione del parto di Maria Vergine by Palma il Giovane

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.

»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) «

306. Again on Planet Mars with the Peony Gondola

And after they saw this Peony Gondola Vision they flew in their hearts together again along the surface of Planet Mars:

* * *

Palmina’s beautiful hairs moved soft in the wind and she smiled.
Palma saw interesting landscapes and a lot of beautiful mountains.

Some mountains and its regions seemed to be blue or green coloured, some orange coloured like in a desert.
They saw also a few clouds on Mars and then they flew again along the huge Schiaparelli Crater with a diameter of nearly 400 kilometres.

Palma made some short and fast drawings of these landscapes.
Palmina understood Palma, he is inspired and is now very creative.

During this they heard this music in their hearts:
VIDEO 1: Violin and Piano (64d) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=S_lB2Hc3_j8


»We are flying over Planet Mars! So beautiful, Palma…so beautiful…«

And the Peony Gondola landed soft on a huge wall which is along the little crater in the Schiaparelli Crater. (at the South part of this little crater in the north east corner of the huge Schiaparelli Crater)

VIDEO 2: Violin and Piano (64b) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=m_Lzn7Ems9U

From there they had a wide view along the landscape of Planet Mars looking in the south direction.

As they looked interested along the interesting landscape they heard this music inside their hearts:

305. Concert Announcement

305. Concert Announcement

01 Palazzo Ducale in Venice.jpg

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…«

02.jpg

picture 02

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.

03 - Amazing-View-Of-The-Piazza-San-Marco.jpg
picture 03 – view of San Marco Cathedral on San Marco Place in Venice *)

*) 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“«

11 San-marco-San-marco.jpeg

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!«

For a while they listened to the girls choir and it was like that:

¹) HEINRICH SCHÜTZ – Wikipedia – https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Heinrich_Sch%C3%BCtz

»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.

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.

»Hm?«

»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…?«

»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.

     Picture –  Palmina will play Palma’s composition at her concert at the Doge’s Palace.

„Can I have the music score if this Saint of Alexandria Inspiration? Hmm, it is the music to this painting, here in the frari church, isn’t it…“

„Yes,  I will write a copy for you and give it on my working table…“

Palmina smiled very lucky.

And  Palmina gave Palma a tender kiss on the right cheek and over his left eye and, yes, Palma could feel it during his dreams and visions and smiled.
And after they saw this Peony Gondola Music Vision they saw this:

   * * *

Palmina did rehearsal today the whole day and could not bring fresh bread in the morning.

So Palma took his way to the backery shop to buy 8 fresh little fine breads.
He smiled as her colleague in the shop said: „Oh, Meastro Palma il Giovane, Singnorina Palmina prepared this little breakfast basked for you. She is doing her reharsal for the big concert in the Doges’s Palace at San Marco Place.

Palma thanked friendly and went now to his painting working place at the chiesa frari, which is a long walk over the Rialto Bridge.
Sometimes, on other days, he mets Palmina playing at the market there,  in front of the little church, at the Rialto bridge, playing her lute and selling fresh breads.
Today she is not there. Palma looked at the 24 h hour clock of the little church.
Palma was looking forward to see her at the concert.
Palma went to the frari church to continue painting the golden light on the huge painting of the saint of Alexandria.

* * *

Later, at the concert Palmina announced suddenly that she will play the Lute solo Nr. 4 about the Image of THUNDER (zhen 卦震)
„Today I will also play a composition THUNDER from the composer Maestro Palma il Giovane.“
Palma was lucky and Palmina played.
The golden light was now in the hall which is also decorated with huge paintings by Palma il Giovane.

The chinese honour guests, also Master Lao from Giudecca island know the meaning of the 8 Image of the I-Ging very well and smiled also nodding.

And now the birth of the melody wich is a symbol of their music love inspiration Palmina played with her lute along the 11 min performance:

And after this Pipa solo Nr. 5 of the „8 Soli for Pipa“ the special guests of the Republic of Venice applauded happy, especially the Chinese people who are living now in the gardens of Giudecca Island.
They will soon invite also to a chinese concert with asian music instruments  at Giudecca and Princess Lin, which Palma painted with all the other princess in white cloth once very beautifully, will play with her students and colleagues.

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.

»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.
