I stretch it, paint it, fold it, going to the limits of its strength, fragility and transparency.
And it often leaves me in desperation because of its fragility.
It leaves me breathless with the feeling of happiness to see its fragile intensity.

I promised you a Rose Garden



"I promised you a rose garden"
(detail)
selected for L'Alcora 2009 (Spain)

"...I never promised you a rose garden, along with the sunshine,
there's gotta be a little rain sometimes...", says the song..
But what if I dìd promise you a Rose Garden...??
Maybe with a little love and fantasy my fragile roses will be
strong enough to create all on their own a beautiful garden with
all the fragrances of spring and summer ...
(and of autumn and winter too..!)
