Things that accompany our life, a part of me - Cose che accompagnano la nostra vita, un pezzo di me

This drawing has always been present in my life,
as the painter Spagnoli present it to my father, in one of those sincere and affectionate exchanges between artists, I was very small and I remember I told my dad that I wanted this picture in my bedroom.
When I moved to Vienna, was perhaps the first thing I put in the carton box, along with books and paintings of my dad, to feel me at home even in a far and new place...


  Drawing of A. Spagnoli (about 1970)

Quando il pittore Spagnoli regaló questo quadro a papá, in uno di quegli scambi affettuosi e sinceri tra artisti, io ero molto piccola e ricordo che dissi a mio papá che avrei desiderato avere questo disegno appeso nella mia camera.
Quando traslocai a Vienna, questo disegno fu forse la prima cosa che io misi nello scatolone,
assieme ai libri e a dipinti di papá, per sentirmi a casa anche in un posto lontano...

Il Crocifisso ti fa sentire a casa... molto bello ed interessante. Aldilà della fede di ognuno penso che la sofferenza sia una realtà che ci tiene con i piedi per terra, ci schiaccia e l'arte (come l'amore, la fede, l'amicizia...) contribuisce anche con un semplice e bel disegno a solleverci a farci sentire il mondo, il luogo dove siamo, una casa più accogliente. Buon Natale Laura, ti auguro di sentire il sapore di buono, il sapore di casa, Graziano.

"Cose" che ti accompagnano nella vita, che ti appartengono, tue e di nessun altro, tue e basta! Il tuo mondo, il tuo angolo

Laura, bellisimo questo quadro di Spagnoli,e bellisimo il tuo ricordo.
Chi lascia il suo paese, sa che tutto quello che conta può entrare in una valigia:la valigia del cuore.

Un bacio affettuoso è un Felicisimo natale.

Thank you Laura, for posting this wonderful drawing and part of your past. These old family possessions live on with us throughout our lives. God bless you.

Tito said...

Laura, hai perfettamente ragione, ci sono cose il cui vero valore dipende solo da quanto ci sono care e da quanta nostra storia racchiudono in se!! E questo disegno ne è un esempio! Un abbraccio!

marty said...

c'est une très belle sanguine Laura

Bitch said...

Yes, Laura,
there are certain things in our
life they are always present with
us.
Never mind its a painting or somethings else.
I am sure that you will never let
this out of your sight!
Hugs from Greece !!

Lovely and powerful.

Anthony Duce said...

Some things are worth savoring, holding onto to keep the past in the present The drawing is intriguing.

This shows that you are an artist to your roots, to your very soul. How marvellous that one image can carry such emotional impact for you, hold precious memories, call up your feelings of "home." And in this Christmas season, what a perfect time to share this story with us.

Caio Fern said...

Ciao Laura,
che Cristo tormentato, bellissimo ci riporta alle reali radici delle feste Natalizie. Hai fatto un'affare a tenerlo con te. E'splendido!

Woman in a Window said...

Such a tender rendering, the texture and the colour. I have the urge to touch it, to lay my hand on it and soothe it/him/myself some more.

Very beautiful, Laura. Vulnerable. How wonderful that you are the keeper of it now.
