  1. Tout simplement superbe!

  2. Unquestionably, an abstract work, lets hear what answers our inner sense of intimate things.
    I have read of a Samurai, isolated and alone, that he shook in his being alive, looks to the future of his time.

    Me a lot of attention.
    Ink on paper, just like the insignia of Bushido, which were written in black ink on a sheet of paper created, processed and bleached it on purpose.

    Go through an art gallery, like this, gives me those few moments of relaxation, arising from the kindness of a painting.

    Good evening.

    • Good morning dear Ninni Raimondi.
      As always I’m overwhelmed by your interpretation.
      I can’t express how much I appreciate it!
      Thank you very very much,

  3. Marina you really have control of this medium resulting in some exciting work.

    Were you in a bad mood when you painted this one? That looks like a Capuchin in the trees at night.

    sometimes we prefer to reduce color, we like monochrome walls, especially if we need some solitude, ignoring the riots outside of our home …

    • Monochrome, to me, is like the melody line in music, which is the base for orchestration [: colour]. Therefore one has to be much more focused …enter soltude, which I prefer to call silence! You’re right!

  6. zorgor says:

    Lots of energy! Looks like the aftermath of a tiger attack or something… Very compelling… I think I’ll be staring at this one for a while…

  7. Fergiemoto says:

    Hmmm…very intriguing! I like it, I’ve looked at it a while, I don’t have an interpretation, but it’s nice.

    I’m back (actually for the third time now) There is something so magnificently primal about this image. For some reason it makes me feel the same connections as reading William Blake’s poetry.

    • I’m very glad you came back to it, Terry and even more so that you enjoyed it! This -along with ch. #20- is one of my faves. [I can see the connection… ]

  9. Pink Ninjabi says:

    Love the Asian influence of this piece. It’s very artistic, a blend of simplicity that is striking. 😀


  10. Deb says:

    Within the parts of this painting, I see a pick, a four-legged creature wearing with the hood on the head, and a bat (the creature). Though something tells me this is not what the painting is about at all. Overall, the piece is very interesting and will keep me looking at it for a good while…as abstract should. Well done!…You have keeps me here staring at it.

  11. mobius faith says:

    I really like this. I can’t find the words to explain why. This will take a few more visits before I can come to terms with it – in the mean time – well done. I always think it’s good to have work that is not easily defined.

  12. Ι see an eye crying.
    He doesnot want to be rejected but you rejected him. He does not wish to be deleted but you deleted him. Therefore.. the pain

  13. dilipnaidu says:

    Sedate and intriguing! Thank you.

  14. aFrankAngle says:

    Love the design. Interestingly, in my short time here this is the first painting i’ve seen you do with gray (as opposed to much color).

  15. excellent blog and nice colors.
