    --- People might find this cheap and common. Oh really… Vincent Van Gogh.
    But everything, even when it’s just printed on postcards, or a poster or anything.

    Everything. He is just beyond words for me.
    When I heard of him… of his life, it affected me so… much.
    I felt so really heavy deep inside. Like it had my heart in a grip.
    I felt so incredibly sad, like I was about to cry immediately.
    I couldn’t… I don’t know. I never had something like that.
    It just went right through to me. I cannot put it into words.
    Like when I read his words, quotes and look at his paintings.

    Some Artists work I enjoy, aside from my own, include:

    Wassily Kandinsky
    Tasha Tudor
    Walt Disney
    Lisa Steinke's fairy illustrations
    Space art e.g. Kim Poor

    Heck, Nature contains the best art when I consider the Hubble Space Telescope, or collect rocks such as jaspers.

    Each tinted fragment sparkles with the Sun,
    A thousand colors, but the Light is One.

    There are many that I like as a mainstay and others that I like going through phases. Right now i'm really taken by a contemporary artist named Kerry James Marshall. I'm not the biggest fan of wikipedia, but here is his page on there: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kerry_James_Marshall

    He gives rise to very powerful and truly beautiful art imo (my current avatar is a photograph of one of his paintings)

    sample:
    kerryJamesMarshall.jpg
    "Inasmuch as it is nothing but pure communicability, every face, even the most noble and beautiful, is always suspended on the edge of an abyss"

    They asked the fox, "Who's your witness?" The fox said, "My tail!"

    The Rise



    When I had the idea of painting this subject, I had named it "The Fall", a reference to some books I was thinking about at that time (Nietzsche: "The Joyful Wisdom", "Thus spoke Zarathustra" and Alain Damasio: "The WindWalkers").



    I contacted a model to work from solid visual references. She perfectly embodied this "Fall", I knew she would feed the feeling I wanted to create.



    We met for “The Fall” and we fell... in love.


    I decided to change the title of this painting, I wished it to be a “Rise” for her.

    I dedicate it to Psyche, my model, my muse and my love.



    «Three metamorphoses of the spirit do I designate to you : how the spirit becometh a camel, the camel a lion, and the lion at last a child.1»
    _____________________________

    1 Friedrich Nietzsche, Thus spoke Zarathustra

    Slightly off, but in case anybody wishes to take a virtual trip in Frida Kahlo's family home (Casa Azul) in these days of quarantine:
