Solitary vision


Language... has created the word "loneliness" to express the pain of being alone. And it has created the word "solitude" to express the glory of being alone." Paul Tillich


“I lived in solitude in the country and noticed how the monotony of a quiet life stimulates the creative mind” Albert Einstein

This has very special mood, Anita. I like the way you communicate through this drawing.

Stacy said...

Wow Anita! This drawing feels so sad. I think you are doing a great job getting your thoughts across about living in that part of the world. I definitely don't plan to move there. ;)

Hi Anita! I hope your life is not depicted here. I am always wondering how you are doing.
The drawing is wonderful -the light,chair, wrought iron, shadow, column are pristine. Love the perspective of the wought iron shadow!

It's funny, when I saw your drawings I could immediately sense the isolation. This one is more obvious of course, but even when it's subtle, you can sense it's there.

Very nice work. I'm really moved by these. :)

I ask myself what the view is from that chair and who had been sitting there. For sure one can see a source of light and warmth. Funny that the light on the floor starts only behind the fence.
