As Raízes do Pensamento - The Roots of the Thought

Aguarela sobre papel - Watercolor
30 x 40 cm - 2008

"Não há machado que corte
a raiz ao pensamento
não há morte para o vento
não há morte
Se ao morrer o coração
morresse a luz que lhe é querida
sem razão seria a vida
sem razão
Nada apaga a luz que vive
num amor num pensamento
porque é livre como o vento
porque é livre."

(Carlos Oliveira/ Manuel Freire)

I like the idea that you have created a one colour water colour. Also the style and definition between the different tubular shapes is significant. This piece has rhythm, balance, great tonal value, and is beautiful! Well done.

The monotone works well with such intricate details...I love the little piece on the far left, making one think of ears, phones and communication which often leads to a lot of thoughts. Great work! :D

The root of the thought is never uncomplicated.

This has a nice flow, the colour disturbs me a bit - my mind rationalises it by imposing my own interpretation, and makes it brown, but that makes my active brain switch it to blood red... it works very well.

I'm trying to think of a way to use "axons" along with that. It would make nice assonance and alliteration.

Your English is pretty good. I try to speak Spanish (but do so poorly). Since Portuguese seems related to Spanish, a few words are recognizable. Your English is vastly better than my Portuguese.
