And after Palma heard Palmina playing at 23 p.m. in their Peony Gondola Palma was lucky and smiled.

Yes, the Peony Gondola is connecting them from heart-to-heart.
Palmina was also lucky feeling that Palma is lucky and smiling.

Now they are sitting side by side in their secret Peony Gondola and they are dreaming together and it was like that:

* * *

Again in the year 1563 at Master Titian’s Palazzo in Venice:

After Mihaela sung her aria perfect she got also an applause.
Palma il Giovane finished his drawing and Master Titian was also lucky to see Palma’s new drawing creation.
He was a little bit proud of his Master student, because he and Master Michelangelo know how hard it is to have a very good master student in this time – a time after the big pandemic pest.

Palmina liked Mihaela’s performance and smiled.

 painting 2 – by Palma in Giovane (painted in early years)

Now Master Titian invited all his guests, also Palmina, to have with him a meal on the long table.

They talked about their earlier years in Rome.
Master Titian told a few secrets about his famous painting ‚Venus of Urbino‘.
Palma listened very interested.

Much later Michelangelo asked:
„…I wanted to ask: How is the Le Zitelle foundation going…? I remeber it was 63 years ago the mighty doges family founded it to protect poor girls from…“

Titian answered fast: „…oh, yes it was in the year 1500 but now we have a big donation from a rich women and so it is possible that a little church is also build inside the building on Giudecca Island – The Chiesa Santa Maria de la Salute by the famous Palladium…“

„…and does the church support the Le Zittelle girls…?“, Michelangelo wanted to know.

Master Titian made a sever face and he looked suddenly 10 years elder then during the music and concert.

Suddenly Palma il Giovane answered in his name:“…Here in Venice, the le Zitelle Institution is independent from the church so we have strong donations which helps to protect the girls from…“

„…from radical Celibacy fanatics…“ the Venus of Urbino model and lute playing women said smiling.

All on the table laughed decently knowing that this topic is very problematic.

„..oh, I see, well, Venice is nevertheless a city also of morality values…“, Michelangelo said laughing.

„Master Michelangelo…didn’t you construct the new Rialto bridge a few years ago?“

„Oh, yes…the Rialto bridge…oh, don’t remember me.
Oh such a story: Because of the Pope Clemens I had to flee as refugee to Venice once. The Doges of the Republic of Venice asked me to make the construction of a new Rialto Bridge.
I made than this with the idea of creation shops beside the steps for tourists and visitors of Venice.
But some spy of the catholic church found out that I am the architect of the Rialto Bridge so the pope’s sun mad intrigues against me and my official commission.

The republic of Venice wanted to wait till an other pope will be in the church and then they want to build the bridge after my plans.

„I hope they will soon start with the work…“, Palma il Giovane said.

As Palma spoke and little Palmina heard Palma’s voice, Palmina looked to Palma with shining and smiling eyes.

picture 3 – view of Rialto bridge in Venice painted by Canaletto

„…The financial administrator of the Vatican has a lot of money and if he pays priests and persons acting against me to make intrigues so the bridge will be build by an other architecture bureau.
They will build it nevertheless after my ideas and after my construction without telling my name…“

Michelangelo made a long sigh and Master Titian asked: „…this is hard to understand…such a clerical intrigue…
Didn’t you compose once a Latin mass as music dedication for Pope Julius II – The P J 2 – Mass?“

„Yes, I composed the mass for Pope Julius II…“

„Didn’t they perform it in Rome after the Pope died?“

„No, they didn’t perform the music, not even after the Pope Julius II died…“

„Such a shame…They have so much money and cannot give orders to their choir leaders to sing and play the music?“, said the Venus of Urbino Model lute playing lady.

„Here in Venice, we are more independent from the church.
I composed several music pieces for the orchestra and choir for the talented orphan girls here in Venice at the Ospedale La Pieta music school shelter….“, Palma il Giovane said.
„So, next time I will compose for orphan girls in Venice and not for a pope…“, Michelangelo said and lifted his glass of wine ceremonially, „…Long lives the art and music in Venice!!! Long life our Le Zitelle and La Pieta Music Girls…“

* * *

And after they saw this Peony Gondola Vision Palmina put her head on Palma’s right side and he put his arm around her to give her a good hold.

Palmina had again light-red cheeks as she lifted the music score with the little bird solo composition with her right arm.

Palma felt that between them was the golden light.

Palma smiled. Palmina smiled.

They continued to dream their Peony Gondola Vision like that:

* * *

Master Titian asked Michelangelo:“How much statues did you made for the thumb of Pope Julius II?“

IMG_20200323_153921

  picture 2 – Thumb of Pope Julius II made by Michelangelo

Michelangelo said“ 40 statues  I had to make as sculptor…it was very expensive to buy the marmor…“

During this Palma il Giovane’s little cousine Mihaela entered  the little wooden stage where Palmina was playing her first accords on the lute.

„…And this is Palma’s talented cousin Mihaela. She will today sing the aria ‚Il mio cuore’…“, Master Titian said proud.

„…she also members our famous Venice Titian Art Gallery. She sings at the openings of new fresh paintings…“

„Oh, well, I see…“, Michelangelo said.

And she sung and the secret Model of Titian’s famous painting ‚Venus of Urbino from Rome played on her Lute beside her. Little Palmina observed all movements of her fingers on the lute and learned all…

  * * *

And after they saw this Peony Gondola Vision Palmina looked at the new music score of Palma for her.
Palmina had light-red cheeks as she saw this art creation.

„And this I composed also: Little bird solo for Pipa.
It describes the sweet sound of a singing bird…“

Her cheeks turned more light-red then ever and she smiled:

  Palmina was lucky as she saw this Lute solo:

„Oh, Palma! Thank you so much, my composer, my painter and writer…“

„Pi -„

„- Pa“

„Liu to – baci!“

And at 23 p.m. Palmina made music and she played this little bird solo and Palma will hear it and he will be lucky.

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.

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:

And after Palmina looked at the next 4 parts of his music dedication she tried out on her Pipa Lute and smiled – and: Palma could feel this and felt also lucky and smiled.

Today several birds sung melodies in the nature and Palma listened to them as it was from Palmina a music message to his heart.

  Now at 23 p.m., as their souls met again at the Peony Gondola Palma,  Palma saw Palmina smiling. Her smile gives him power to continue to compose 4 new parts and he wrote and she smiled:

Picture – view along the Rio de la Pieta at Furlani in Venice nearby the bakery shop from Palmina“s parents and the future Atelier owf Palma il Giovane (right side) and the Scuola (in the middle)

Palmina studied the new music score very interested and exercised some parts, especially the part (3) of „Water, Thunder, Wind“.
Palmina understood that this is the „Thinking on each other Melody“ (see par 1-2) in the „Mirror“-Version:  Melody moving down is mirrowed and transformed moving up and melody up is mirrowed to notes moving down.

Palmina smiled and Palma could feel it.

Now they saw this Peony Gondola Vision:

      * * *

1563, Venice.

A little 6 year old girl is bringing a little basket toa palazzo of the old wise Painting Master Titian.
She is wearing a typical bakery shop working dress and smiled friendly.
Before she could enter the fine Palazzo, suddenly she saw a few man carrying a long itter with a famous old man inside.
She stopped and saw that whole Venice had orange oil lamps in their windows.
She rememberes that her mother said today to her that this is done to honour the great and famous artist architect, sculptor, painter, writer and composer Michelangelo (1) who will come today to visit Master Titian in his  famous Titian School.

Later Palmina entered the rooms to bring fine fresh breads for master Titian he loves so much.
Very shy but smiling she stands with her basket.at the door of the huge room.
„With best wishes and greetings from  our bakery shop…“, Palmina said innocent and waited till she was allowed to bring the basked to old Master Titian.

    Picture 2 – Pieta of Michelangelo

  Master Michelangelo was now also there and they had an important talk about the future of the Venice Titian Art School – about the question who should be the keeper of the Venetian painting shool.
During the Pest Pandemy they had often, to close the school and a lot of people died in Venice (30 percent).
A hard time for whole Europe.
Master Titian feels more and more weak because he had also the Virus but survived.
Now he is only feeling weaker and weaker.
So the little breads are giving him a little bit joy and light in his old days.
He took a bread and asked Michelangelo also to take one.

„..This is my student Palma il Giovane…“ Master Titian said to Master Michelangelo.
The very young Palma il Giovane smiled and nodded shy to Master Michelangelo.

„Since one year he is working in the closest circle of my best students…I asked him to move from Rome back to Venice to stay here…
Here are some good paintings and his amazing drawings and some made by him. I am so proud to have him…“.

  Palmina looked shy to Palma il Giovane and to his paintings while she is holding her little basked with her breads.

Suddenly a lady with a lute came in the big room and tuned her music instrument.

She nodded friendly and sat down on her chair which was on a little wooden stage on the other wall of yhe big room.

Michelangelo whispered to Titian:“Oh, She is your secret model?“ Michelangelo wanted to know.
„She lookes like the women on your beautiful painting „Venus of Urbino“ which is now in Rome at Guidobaldo II della Rovere, Duke of Urbino.
„Yes, I know, Duke Rovere bought my painting…“ Master Titian said and all his heart and all his weak eyes looked expecting to his secret love his model and musician „Venus of Urbino“.

Now she started to play full of heart and full of love.

Michelangelo, Palma il Giovane and of course Palmina Albina could hear this beautiful house concert.
Palmina opened her mouth and eyes and looked fascinated to the talented lute playing female musician.

The music touched her heart deeply and she listened to every single note.
After a few minutes she observed that Master Titian is feeling better and better like a miracle. The colours of his white-grey skin transformed to white-light-red.
She hold her hand in front of her mouth not to show her emotional surprise about the miracle of music.

Music was like a living, energy like a golden light.
Palmina felt deep in her heart that she wants also to learn to play the lute like her, to give love and light with music.

She wants not only to be a baker shop girl, she wants to became an artist in Venice.

Palmina smiled and then she looked at the student of Master Titian, Palma il Giovane.

Palma smiled back to her and she was lucky.

And after they saw this Peony Gondola Vision of the year 1563 Palma composed 4 new parts for her:

„Look Palmina the stars at the evening sky…“

Palmina put her head on Palma’s side and Palma put his arm around her.
Later, at 23 p.m., as their souls met again in their Peony Gondola, Palmina could get the whole music score of Palma’s new music creation.

She looked very impressed at the music score and was lucky; so she hugged Palma with her whole love.

And suddenly they heard the music of this creation again and it was like that:

VIDEO: „Longing – Sehnsucht“ for Violin and Piano by Gerald Spitzner – https://youtu.be/rNNzpGZsz48

 

She gave Palma several tender kisses on his right cheek and a very long kiss on the right side, and: yes, and Palma could feel it and he smiled. It felt as if she did this for an eternal time.

„So beautiful, Palma! You touched deeply my heart. I will never forget this music inspiration, my Palma. my composer, my painter, my astronomer, my writer….“

After Palmina’s sweet compliments Palma il Giovane felt to be like an Indian Peacook.

picture 2 · Indian Peacook.jpeg

picture 2 · Indian Peacook

Palma felt all as if she is direct beside him in the Peony Gondola and again: there was this golden light between their hearts.

„You can play it with your instrument… you see, the instrumental parts have middle, deep and very high passages… What about playing it Violin, Piano and your Instrument for special parts?“

„Oh, I will try several parts of it on my instruments. Oh, Palma I love it so much!“

Amd again: Palma felt like an Indian Peacook and smiled.

And Palmina tried to play it on her instrument several times.

And Palma remembered that , today a bird sung in the morning in the little garden a wonderful melody.
For Palma it was a message from Palmina.
„Yes, Palma I send you a heart-to-heart message via this bird messenger!“

„…and,and, I have composed for you 4 pages of our „Dialogue, look my sweet Pigeon! “

And Palmina looked also at this music score which Palma started to compose at San Marco Place.

333. Time-inspirations at Art

In the morning Palma heard in the little garden the two Pigeons speaking in their language.

He smiled and thought on his Pigeon.

And later at 23 p.m. as their souls met together the Peony Gondola moved soft again the 21st century at that day they went along Venice to see the Chiesa Santa Maria della Salute and they saw this:

      * * *

Palmina and Palma are going along the big Promenade. Left they saw the church which was not there in the 16th century.

„Palma ?“

What is the intention of your creation „Cosmic Clock? Are there also intentions to your rememberings on your Uncles’s Mars Mission. Do you also describe the time of peace and good weather for the Astronauts in the first months on Mars…?“

Palma was thinking about the different  meanings a composition has.

„There are a lot of meanings…“, he answered.

Palmina wanted to know:“..I also thought by myself how important are time-windows… I mean the Astronauts did not expect the huge thunderstorm… Only your uncle and his colleague survived the storm because they where on secure places…“

After a while of silence Palmina and Palma turned right to have a tea or a coffee on San Marco Place.

„I think the whole world has a time window to act to do good thinks using their free will…“

Palma started to write again on the Dialogue and it was like that:

dav

   picture 2 – Music Score [4]  of „Dialogue for Pipa and Viola“

„Oh, a new part of the Dialogue. Oh, Palma…“
Palma was lucky and she gave him a short tender kiss on his left cheek on the line between and his ear and his nose.

Palma smiled and he could feel this.
Yes, he smiled

329. Romantic Walk to the church Maria de la Salute in Venice

After Palmina looked happy at the music score and tried to play the piano part on her Pipa and on her Lute, Palmina tried to play the Violin part on her instrument.

„You can play this alongside my music-score-video I posted at chapter 328…“, Palma whispered to Palmina.

And Palmina did this a few times and felt lucky in her heart.
Now she looked at the music score.
Then she put the music score soft and tender on her cheek and smiled, finally she kissed the music score.

Later she was lying beside Palma in the Peony Gondola, gave him a tender good night kiss and Palma could feel it and he smiled as if he could feel her being beside him.

Yes, this Peony Gondola is a Miracle. A Miracle that is connecting two hearts, even they are separated by a big distance.
Palmina dreamed also that she is together with Palma il Giovane again in the 21st century.

And now both are dreaming the same dream and together they dreamed this:

* * *

After a few days – the Saint Valentines’s Day in the 21st century –
Palmina tried TODAY to send a Message via facebook Messenger to Palma.

But the criminal adnimistrators of facebook Messenger erased her Message and Palma only could feel this in his heart but they are now in Venice are sitting together again at the bakery shop in at the ‚Calle de la Pieta‘ at the place ‚Campo Bandiera e Moro‘.

„I wrote you today on St.Valentin’s Day, Palma. Look on my handy…“
„Oh, on my handy there is no message Palmina… They are blocking our communication.
How good that we are here in Venice.

So I will compose something for you…“

They ordered again the so called ‚Palmina-breads‘.
The sun was shining friendly. Some Pigeons came to get something from the ‚Palmina breads‘.

Palma is still writing on his new composition „Dialogue for Pipa and Viola“ (Palma composed this also 400 years ago for her).

picture 1 -  "Dialogue for Pipa and Viola" [1] by Gerald Spitzner.jpg

picture 1 – „Dialogue for Pipa and Viola“ [1] by Gerald Spitzner

„Dialogue for Pipa and Viola… dedicated to …“ he writes over this music score.
Palmina smiled and observed what he is writing on the music score on the table.
She was silent waiting till he wrote his first inspiration down to the music score paper.
Palmina smiled and was lucky. She could not wait to play the first 4 bars of it:
He wrote Pipa music question: A – D – E – a

and

Viola music answer: c – g – d -e
Often he looked in her eyes as if he paints her as painted melodies.
He painted her soul and her friendly character as music in this composition.
Palmina could feel this and was lucky. It remembers the time he was a painter and painted her, here in the house of the baker’s shop, in the little room over the little Garden, where the little birds are singing, singing for her.

Today at the 14th of February Palma makes this music dedication for his Pigeon as St.Valentin’s dedication.
After a long time, as Palma needed a break from writing, they decided to have a short look in the little street ‚Calle de la Pieta‘, where on the left side a little garden still is.
The little short street is starting here at the corner of the bakery shop.

„Oh, there is the little garden… but there is a little wall…;
but in the 16th century there was no wall, Palma,… and there is a little house in the other part of the garden, a traditional Coffee Roasting, look Palma….“

picture 2 - Here at this window in the Calle de la Pieta Palmina played on her Lute in her little room in the 16th century.jpeg

picture 2 – Here at this window in the Calle de la Pieta Palmina played on her Lute in her little room in the 16th century

They stopped and turned left and looked up to see the window, where Plamina once lived.
Palma and Palmina smiled. How often Palma stood there down in the street at the garden, looking up, playing his Mandolin for her (see several Mandolin solo compositions posted earlier), for his Pigeon and Palmina gave always a music answer.

Sometimes Palmina played on her Instrument „A D E a“
and Palma gave the answer with his Instrument „c g d a“

Both remembered it in this moment.

Palma il Giovane puts his arm around her, she puts her head on Palma’s side and now they feel united after centuries.

Palmina took one fresh bread from her bag and gave it Palma to sniff.
Now Palmina sniffed also on the little fine white bread.

Both had now to laughter loud, because they remembered this secret scene which happened here in this little street ‚Calle de la Pieta‘ a long long time ago in the 16h century.

Now they looked at the coffee roasting in this street and they saw that they have a little shop, here, left beside the bakery shop at the place ‚Campo Bandiera e Moro.‘

They went back to this place to visit the coffee shop at the place.
There was a friendly lady who explained about the old tradition of their coffee roasting in Venice.

And it was like that:

VIDEO: Coffee roasting (the video is in the middle of the website, please click on that video to see it ) – https://www.e-venise.com/ph13/0609-les-cafes-girani-venise.html

Now, after that, they went back to the bridge at the Calle de la Pieta which was over the water canal ‚Rio de la Pieta‘. There was a free Gondola and they took it to see Venice from the view of this moving Gondola. A very romantic point of view.
This Gondola is covered (see picture) and not open. (Like the most Gondolas where in the 16th century).

picture 3  - A covered Gondola in Venice (this and similar types of Gondolas had been used very often in the 16th century).png

picture 3 – A covered Gondola in Venice (this and similar types of Gondolas had been used very often in the 16th century)

The Gondola moved slowly to the famous ‚Ponte di Rialto‘ which was in her middle, upper part inspired and designed after the painting ‚La Pieta‘ (1573-1576) by Master Titian and Master Palma il Giovane. During this painting Palmina played during 3 years to assist music-therapeutically the painting process with inspiring lute playing during the years 1573-1576.

They visited the Chiesa Dei Frari to see Master Titian’s famous L’Assunta Maria and Palma’s painting of the Saint Hypatia of Alexandria (known as painting ‚Saint Katharina of Alexandria‘ ).

picture 4 - painting  "Martirio Santa Caterina" by Palma il Giovane at Frari in Venice.jpg

Later they continued to move with the Gondola along the Canale Grande, back into the south direction to go along the Giardino Garden in the south.

A lot of remembering they had and later they walked again back in the north along the big promenade in the direction of the San Marco Place and Chiesa San Maria de la Salute.

„Today we have to visit this Church – It was not build in our century, for us this is completely a new building“, Palmina said full of joy in her voice.

As they walked slowly in the direction of Chiesa Maria de la Salute Palmina asked Palma:

„Palma?“
„Yes, Mia Pigeon.“

„What is the intention of the Adagio-Venus-Neptune Inspiration?“ (Adagio Venus-Neptune-Inspiration for Violin and Piano by Gerald Spitzner)

„Yes, a few days Planet Venus moved alongside Planet Neptune (seen from earth). And this Moment is composed as music inspiration, Venus-Neptune-Inspiration.

Pythagoras says: The Movement of the Planets are making Music.
And we as artists can play and express this music of the Planets, Isn’t?“

Palmina looked at the West horizon and saw the bright shining Planet Venus.
„…and all our remembering on Mars, Palma:
Your Uncle was the first who was on Mars and came back alive…“

„Yes, he was up there with 19 other Astronauts, but after 18 died in a huge storm, he and his colleague survived. But his colleague was too weak to come back to earth. He would die very fast on earth he knows as doctor…
The magnetic field is at 24 p.m. there 20 times stronger compared to earth….
But he was the first who came back to earth in modern history…
My uncle wrote a novel with his friend Ludevit who was a space painter and author. My uncle’s name is not mentioned but he helped to write it. The end is not from my uncle. My uncle died during writing the end of the novel. The book was several times winning awards, especially in Germany and the U.S.A, as book for children and for the youth…“

„Wow, Palma. Your family are V.I.P’s of the history of man.“

„Yes, but only a few people knows that really. It is rather a family secret. They plan to make a museum…with digital film-sequences of the film my uncle made during the landing on Mars.
Also a digital copy of the original filming flying over the little Schiaparelli Crater at 0° degree Meridian and all the important film-material and photos from Mars (in colour!)

Mars is more and more explored by different countries and they found the evidence that the huge space station for 20 astronauts is today still on Mars and they found also the huge mobile astronomic laboratory called „Astra“ at he „Adriatic Sea“.

Palma and Palmina made for a while silence. They hold each other the hands and their hearts communicated silent from heart-to-heart.

„Palma,… I remember a time where we lived on Mars, Palma and we know each other as artist from there isn’t it?

Palma pressed his lips thin together and it seemed that Palma gave her the answer only with his thoughts.

Palmina smiled as if she received his secret message.

* * *

And after they dreamed together this Valentine’s day in Venice in the 21st century, Palma and Palmina hugged and heard the

„Peony Gondola Song – Gondola di Venezia – Santus in G-Dur“ (with 20 Mandolins-version)

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.

»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!!!«
