Hunger bites

Morsels of the mind

She offered

Fruit of old

To compensate the feeling

Of bowels reeling

 

Candy cake

Sugar on the top

Sickening

Slice of lies

Their ancestry picked from flies

Uneven outposts

 

We held hosts

In kingdom’s shiver

In quiver

Shake my faith

I will show you wizened strait

Measure of my wait

An oil pastel sketch of my daughter when she was little (based on a photograph)

 

I have not usually favoured the use of pastels as I feel somewhat hindered by the amount of mess they often generate which cannot be somehow « fixed » unlike oils and to an extent acrylic and aquarelle.

 

My daughter on the other hand was so enamoured with soft pastels that it got me thinking I should perhaps revisit the subject. I had both oil and soft chalk pastels and decided upon the oils to complement the oil painting of flowers in a vase.

 

I hope you like all of them.

Stabat Mater copy

 

Today I am sharing two divergent moods in the sketches. One is of a flamenco dancer having fun and one is a drawing inspired by the cover of the CD of Stabat Mater by Giovanni Battista Pergolesi

 

I thought the sombre vis-à-vis light mood was quite interesting to look at and hope you like them.
