Just thinking




Interrogative - Oil on canvas by Laura Tedeschi



No, it's not easy for anyone to tell something, there are those who studied for years and those who allow themselves to go on intuition, but the effort of telling, whether played on the keys of a piano, or wrote on a white paper, or break down on a block of clay or leaves the tubes of color, are needed determination and intuition. It takes strength, the strength of a knight who throws himself wildly galloping against the current. How tired I have got, how convoluted body and soul behind the empty white canvas, but in most cases to bring out only the shadow of an inspiration, but holy god I did not think so !!!!! Good will, together with mediocre results, is still worse, a glimpse of the potential is one orribile thing. It's as, if the teacher at school had said your mother: 'the boy engage himself, but he can not apply'.  All attempts at pretending to myself that I made something beautiful... it's always like this, the thrill is short .. already after a short time, my attempt appears to me very poor (so that I can see in this all my fear, I can see me as a teenager in the little town where I grew up, I can see me walking on the streets without ease, with my satchel in my hand, dreaming of being courageous and hoping to not meet anyone because my shyness prevented me from socializing like everyone else, I see myself as child running away from the villagers who might ask me questions). Well, why I'm always trying to express my self in this way? Well, maybe is the old habit of wasting time with people who, perhaps love us and tell them all, but you can not deny that this is very pathetic, with the hope that one day even the positions of this forms could be proud to show their uneasiness.

El texto me desgarró...(es tuyo?) Sabes,me ha provocado muchas cosas, evocaciones, recuerdos,en fin,sentimientos fuertes...y me tiene atrapada aún.

Tu obra, ya sabes, me fascina la expresión que logras en los ojos siempre. Son ojos con una tristeza infinita, ojos que buscan y reclaman en silencio...

Muy emotivo todo, amiga.

Disculpa no poder dejar este comentario en inglés, no lo manejo tanto.

Abrazos grandes. Y un beso.

Gracias querido amiga, siento que entiende

Quei magnifici occhi che scrutano l'interlocutore!

ADRIAN said...

Laura. As we say. Pull yourself together lass. This is a beautiful but sad portrait. Like most artists, people will only want what they can no longer get. I like your work more and more you are simplifying it. The fewer the strokes of your pallet knife the better for me.
Don't write sad things. You are beautiful.

Jan said...

Hi, Laura! Love these colors, and I especially love those eyes, and lips!
Beautiful!!!

erin said...

incredibly beautiful, vulnerable, honest and open. perhaps the most that i've ever witnessed you, laura, and i want to hug you for your bravery. for your beauty, too, not necessarily of face, but of spirit.

respectfully, adrian, i don't believe this is good advice. we should never force ourselves to be anything other than what we are. and if she wasn't beautiful, what then? sadness is fine then but not in the face of beauty? life is a very sad place. oh, it has boundless joy, but the sadness exists equally. (i don't usually read comments but somehow this one caught my attention.)

love)))

Antonio Machado said...

Bravo Laura!!!
Congratulations

Andrew Finnie said...

Heh, your prose is beautiful. So well put, expansive but concise. We all have self doubts, that makes us better people in the long term. Imagine someone who had no self doubt? They would be unbearable for more than a few seconds.

Luscious portrait, nice and thick and juicy :) Good enough to eat. I'll be right over with knife and fork :)

Anthony Duce said...

Love when you paint this way. And it is good to share thoughts like this too. Makes it easier to move forward into a new day.

Denise Scaramai said...

Brava Laura!
è incredibile come tutto nella vita si riduce a pochi momenti dispari della felicità.
Quante domande, i ricordi, i concetti e gli insegnamenti, siamo fatti? e tutti indietro in un momento di creazione, quando dovremmo essere sicura e liberi!
Mi congratulo con voi per questo dipinto meraviglioso, così intensa e significativa, e il coraggio di aprire il tuo cuore
ti capisco bene, lo sai...

Wonderful stare ...

Celeste Bergin said...

thanks for sharing your thoughts and this expressive painting..your painting "speaks"

Tito said...

Magnifico ritratto Laura, sei insuperabile quando dipingi così. Il testo, o meglio, la confessione con cui lo presenti lo rende ancora più affascinante, direi che è il ritratto della tua anima! Un abbraccio!

Bitch said...

In a time we do not expect a change

Hugs

Two Tigers said...

I see nothing but beauty here, in the eyes, and in the words. Beauty like this is so big that whether or not there is sadness in it seems almost unimportant. It is life.

No entiendo el texto completamente,pero entiendo en el una fuerte lucha interior...quizas somos muy exigentes con nosotros mismos ( los artistas )y terminamos quemandonos y no deberia de ser asi ,siempre aportamos algo.
los rostros de hoy me gustan mucho,no contienen mucho negro y los veo mas optimistas...un abrazo Laura.
