african maternity WIP

this project after a photo of an african mother and child will take a long time as i have no colorless blender pencil yet and this skin color asks for blending.I introduced a branch of acacia in the composition to give some insight into an african environment.

a catalan poem

I woke up with this beautiful catalan poem on my mind, something I don't remember the title or the author:

La plutja de la nit
ha nevat l'acacia de verda caricia humida
i el vent perfilat de març
l'ha orfanat dels seus primers orientals estels
O, besa'm en els ulls, estranya inoblidable amant,
que en els teus cabells
em moren entrenuades les meves mans.

I wish I could be able to render in English all the beauty of the verse.It's about the rain of a night in March and all the scattered flowers of the acacia tree, the hands of the lover caressing the hair of the woman kissing his eyes.

new project

This is a collage for a painting with the theme of my poem

Vademecum - a survival kit

 I would hold my eyes between my teeth

 like a killer his knife

 while he is tying up his victim.

 In this way I can walk

 almost safe

 among the fittest;

 and no one would know

I am but a Schöne Seele,

 and no one would tell me:

watch out.

Who would bother with a cubist

mixed media collage: cut out drawing in sanguine and tinted charcoals glued on poster cardboard together with crepe paper petals painted in oil pastels 16x9in.
