818415 bob : why did you minor in art
818416 charliedontsurf : No regrets at all
818417 bob : was it something you liked before
818418 charliedontsurf : Because I needed some filler classes besides psychology and for just four classes I could get a minor....I took a lot of Advanced Placement high school classes, including Art History and I loved it
818419 bob : where did you live when in spain?
818420 charliedontsurf : It has always intrigued me, the history and the meaning of the art, I have no natural talent in drawing or painting so I admire the work of others
818421 bob : i didnt realise there was so much symbolism in art
818422 charliedontsurf : I started out in Alcala de Henares for 4 months which is east of Madrid, spent a month in Guadalajara, another 6 months in Madrid and Mostoles, San Sebastian de los Reyes near Madrid and finished off a month in Valladolid and five months in Leon
818423 bob : doing what?
818424 charliedontsurf : There is a ton of symbolism, especially Christian art, every plant means something, even the color of clothing they wear
818425 charliedontsurf : Taking uni classes in Spanish and just enjoying life
818426 bob : were these symbols understood by the masses?
818427 charliedontsurf : Yes, for the most part...remember that centuries past many people were illiterate, thus stained glass to teach Bible stories
818428 charliedontsurf : And of course having a Bible was not allowed, that was the domain of the church and the parishioners were to accept the stories as told by the Church, also books were rare and expensive
818429 bob : i have never been big on art
818430 charliedontsurf : So symbols and simple Christian stories in the Bible and the life of Jesus and the saints could be told in pictures and on stained glass
818431 charliedontsurf : Well, I enjoy it....especially GOOD art
818432 bob : makes sense
818433 charliedontsurf : For example, if you have a candlestick with no candles it means something, if it has a single candle in a candlestick which holds more than one candle it means another thing, if the candle is lit it means another thing, if it has been snuffed out, yet another
818434 bob : i have walked past many famous gallleries in Europe
818435 charliedontsurf : Too bad, but it's not your thing
818436 charliedontsurf : I like it all....churches, museums, outdoors, bridges, aqueducts, castles
818437 bob : well my attitude is that there are just so many things to see i couldnt afforfd the time
