(↓)Due dardi vennero lanciati: uno d’Oro, destinato ad Apollo, l’altro di Piombo, andato in sorte a Dafne.
Una lettura in chiave ermetica rivela la storia già dall’istante in cui Amore scocca le frecce: l’oro, che qui è Apollo, sulfureo, è costantemente attratto dalla natura mercuriale di Dafne. Se al primo si accostano aggettivi come: incorruttibile, aureo, igneo, spirituale; della ninfa invece, che è acquatica, si dice che sia mutevole, misterica, corruttibile.
L’incessante inseguimento dei due è un’allegoria dei processi di trasformazione ermetici e di morte e rinascita iniziatiche: un memento della perfettibilità alla quale l’uomo deve ambire.
"Honesty", A4, watercolour.

This book inspired me for this piece you're seeing here, but one idea from it took my thoughts far, far away, to people too afraid to live and most of all, to live honestly. And the reason I chose to express this idea through a romantic lens is because this is an area that affect people the most. I read a lot and I observe a lot, people are a major inspiration for me. On top is the reality, where a person is paralysed to expressing what's actually inside (the inside plan bellow where things are a lot different and more honest) and bellow is what it should actually be the reality. The character in the book is male, that's why he is the one different inside out, she, on the other hand, is with everything at sight, sincere. Of course, this could be valid for a situation where she is in his place, but since the character is male, I went with that. Are you leading a honest life? Are you expressing what you actually feel? Are you being honest with yourself, with others? Are your values right? What are you seeking in life? Are you actually living? Be honest. Be vulnerable, be yourself, nothing bad happens, only when you're not being yourself (the picture on top) things get ugly in life. Have the courage to live. Truly, honestly, beautifully 🧡 Turn the image upside down.

..while you are in Africa @stepanvrzalaphoto working on beautiful project in Zambia with @karentranevents and @lovefrommwai_experiences it somehow inspired me to create one of three paintings with unusual color palette for me. It did not come intentionally..it happened on the way in a pure creative state in alignment with 'what is'. Enjoy Africa, my love🌿This is the detail of the painting called Summer clouds II.
