Here is the poem for this work:
This means that we have barely
disembarked into life,
that we’ve only just now been born,
let’s not fill our mouths
with so many uncertain names,
with so many sad labels,
with so many pompous letters,
with so much yours and mine,
with so much signing of papers.
I intend to confuse things,
to unite them, make them new-born
intermingle them, undress them,
until the light of the world
has the unity of the ocean,
a generous wholeness,
a fragrance alive and crackling.
From “Too Many Names”
Pablo Neruda (1904 – 1973)
The background on this work is four layers of cobalt blue, alizarine
crimson, prussian blue, and a dusting of a old gold. The painting began
with two coats of heavy gesso, done in a wavy pattern. You can’t see it in
these pictures because it is subtle, but in real life it adds depth and
texture. The Moons are three glazes of white, brilliant blue and then
transparent earth orange.
The Fairy is glowing with the same colors of the moons. She also has black
leaves encrusted with fairy dust (fine glitter).
I had a lot of fun working on this painting and I hope that my joy shows
Thank you for being here, and have a great day.
Don’t forget there are still fine art originals at auction, not much time left on them so…
