Mikey & Alisa
The Mona Lisa painting
"Tell me what do you see when you look at this painting?" Mikey asked.
"That all women are supposed to be beautiful inside and out, it shouldn't matter what a person on the outside look like but the inside that counts, " Alisa said.
"I've heard some people say hatred and filthy words about Mona Lisa being the first ugly woman that has been painted during the Renaissance. That's why I asked you that question earlier. The Renaissance people created the color techniques of light and shadow and chiaroscuro," Mikey informed.
"Wow, interesting, " Alisa said observing the painting.
"I don't think that way of looking at Mona Lisa's portrait. I think she is amazingly beautiful, " Mikey said.
"Yeah she is, " Alisa said.
"Now, I am going to give my critique on this painting. What I see when I look at this Mona Lisa painting I see a white beautiful woman that is standing upright, and her clothes look like a black and white soft robe. Her hair is curly and hanged down to her to her shoulders. The images has texture and the background is light. Alisa can you describe Mona Lisa's facial expression? " Mikey asked.
"What do you mean facial expression?" Alisa asked.
"What I mean by facial expression is do she look mad, happy or sad?" Mikey asked.
"I don't know, well, she is smiling so, she doesn't look upset or angry, " Alisa said.
"That's it Alisa, you're right about that, she is smiling, that's her expression. Now, what I see in the background is multiple colors of grass. The research I have found out about this painting is that it's made out of oil paint, " Mikey informed.
"Wow Mikey you talk too much, " Alisa said.
"I know, I get it from my mother's side of the family, it's a genetic thing. But going back to the question I asked you in school who made the Mona Lisa painting, the artist were Leonardo DaVinci. " Mikey said.
"Awe wow, I thought you meant to say Leonardo Dicaprio because I was go say how did he create the Mona Lisa painting and he is an Hollywood actor, he is not an artist, " Alisa said.
"No he isn't, but yeah that's who created the Mona Lisa painting, Leonardo DaVinci. That's my interpretation of it, " Mikey said.
"Wow, I love hanging out with you Mikey, you are the smartest friend I ever known, " Alisa said.
"Well what can I say, " Mikey said.
